Trivia Edit

  • This episode was delayed a week following the original alleged broadcasting date, because of Thanksgiving. In its place, it will be broadcast a marathon of the first three episodes of the third season.
  • In "Mary Sibley", exclusive premiering clip, the troubled protagonist, who’s played by the series’ lead actress, Janet Montgomery, is being plagued by the ghost of Rebecca Nurse, who was wrongfully executed for witchcraft. As Rebecca reaffirms that she isn’t a witch and shouldn’t be hanged, Mary pleads with her to leave her alone, as the execution wasn’t her fault. Mary also claims she didn’t have a choice in the matter, but Rebecca insists that she always has a choice. [2]

Cultural ReferencesEdit

  • It is a reference to one of Adam Simon's favourite quotes from Shakespeare's Macbeth, Act III, Scene II: "Good things of day begin to droop and drowse; Whiles night’s black agents to their preys do rouse."
