"The Beckoning Fair One" is the seventh episode of Season Two of Salem, and the twentieth episode of the series overall. It premiered on May 17th, 2015 on WGN America.

Synopsis

Mary resorts to drastic measures in a bid to attain valuable information for use in combating the Countess, and she tries to shore up her political hold over Salem with a move that could either assure her success or seal her fate. As Anne Hale continues her Witch’s tutorial, she learns that getting what she desires comes at a cost and that, in order to continue on her seemingly powerful path, she must still remain supplicant to others. As the Countess and her son, Sebastian, continue to work their plan, they are presented with a rare glimpse into their enemy’s stronghold where a fascinating introduction is made, and their cause is made stronger by a new but unpredictable ally. Wainwright returns to Salem having gained some measure of information that may shed light on the town’s particular strain of plague, but further investigation reveals shocking results. Meanwhile, Tituba makes plans for her recently captured prey, and Cotton gets a surprising visit.
