1692 - September 22nd, Salem, Massachusetts
(‘The Salem Witch hunt’)

The trio board the Lifeboat and depart for 1692. When they arrive, they steal some clothes and go to Proctor’s Ledge where the witches will be hung. A robed figure approaches them and Flynn attempts to introduce them and Lucy takes over and claims them to be visitors from Boston.

The figure is Abiah, posts a notice condemning the judges are killers. Garcia says that they’re because they want to help, and Lucy warns that it’s dangerous to speak out. Abiah tells them that she plans to speak out at Ingersoll’s Tavern.

They go to the tavern and Hathorne walks out and calls everyone to order. He announces that a petition was submitted to the governor asking for the verdict to be overturned, and the governor refused. Hathorne says that the nine witches will be executed, even though Lucy only remembers eight.

Abiah says that there are no such thing as witches, and Hathorne presents the accused and points out the “evidence”. When Abiah continues to object, Hathorne reads the accusation and calls out Abiah Franklin. He says that she has been convicted of witchcraft and will hang with the others.

Lucy tells Rufus and Garcia that Abiah is Benjamin Franklin’s mother, and if she’s executed then he’ll never be born. Lucy says that Abiah won’t give birth to Benjamin for 14 years. She figures that if Rittenhouse kills Benjamin Franklin then they will eliminate a voice against tyranny.

Rufus sees the man that Jiya described from her visions, and figures that he’s a sleeper agent. The man leaves and Garcia goes off to see if Jiya is right. They follow the man to a barn, grab him, and demand to know what he knows about Abiah. They determine that he’s working with Hathorne, and he’s secretly investigating the charges.

He has papers confirming that he’s Judge Samuel Sewall. Samuel’s daughter Betty comes in, and Samuel begs them not to kill him in front of his child. Garcia tells Samuel not to say anything and lets him go, and the group is left wonder who accused Abiah. Lucy says that Abiah’s sister Bathsheba Pope was one of the most outspoken accusers.

The trio leave and Lucy explains that Bathsheba and her husband were two of the major accusers. They go the Pope house and Rufus goes back into Salem to find a way to rescue the witches.

They go inside and Bathsheba’s husband Joseph says that he doesn’t hunt or have a rifle because he’s a god-fearing man. Bathsheba come in and says that she’s heard that Abiah was accused of witchcraft. She figures that the village will be freed of evil, and Lucy tells her that she knows Bathsheba has been falsely accusing people of witchcraft. Garcia asks who paid her to accuse the witches and starts beating Joseph. Bathsheba says that she didn’t accuse Abiah.

At the tavern, Rufus meets with Garcia and Lucy and says that the prison is too tough to break into. Samuel comes in and Rufus tells Lucy that he can’t forget Jiya’s vision. Lucy tells him that there’s no such thing as predestination, but Rufus points out that Garcia said that they would work together and it’s come true.

Samuel and his men surround them with guns. As Garcia fights them, Carol steps out and accuses Lucy of being a witch.

The men throw Lucy into a cell with the other women. Abiah comes over and Lucy says that it’s more awful than she thought. The younger woman explains how her own friends sat there as they took her away, and she’ll die in disgrace. Lucy says that they refused to change and that made people md, so they attacked her and called her evil. She tells them that they’re brave and she’s proud to be in their company.

Rufus sits outside the cell with the hangman, who tells Rufus to stay away from him. Carol comes in and asks Lucy if she’s okay. She says that there’s no sleeper agent there, and she accused Lucy to make a better future. Lucy asks her about Jessica, and Carol says that if Lucy agrees then they can go back to the future and convince Nicholas to spare her. Her daughter says that she’d rather be hanged, and Carol slips a knife through the bar and tells her to escape. Then she will find her and take her back in the Mothership.

Garcia goes back to the Pope home and demands to know where his rifle is. Pope punches him, and Garcia punches him back. Bathsheba comes out with the rifle, and Garcia throws Joseph into Bathsheba and takes the rifle to use.

The townspeople take the women to Proctor’s Ledge and Hathorne declares sentence on Abiah. Lucy cuts at her ropes with the knife, and gives it to Rufus when she can’t reach the ropes.

The townspeople curse Abiah, and Garcia shoots from the shadows and kills a man. Hathorne and the others run off, and Rufus frees Lucy. As they free Abiah, Hathorne attacks Lucy. Garcia kills him but not before Hathorne stabs Lucy in the arm.

She tells Rufus that they can still save the women, and tells them to run. Lucy then advises Abiah to take the women to Boston where there will be more men with open minds, and she’ll be fine.

As Rufus leads Alice away, Samuel confronts him and says that Rufus can’t escape. He aims his flintlock at Rufus, and Rufus tells him to leave. Samuel refuses and Rufus says that he doesn’t want to shoot Samuel, and lowers his own musket. He tells Samuel to go home to his daughter, and after a moment, Samuel lowers his flintlock.

A wagon runs over Samuel and Rufus goes over to him and realizes that he’s dead.

Back at the Lifeboat, Garcia straps Lucy in and says that she made a pretty big change in history by saving the women. Lucy tells him that she can’t watch innocent people die anymore, and Garcia assures her that she’s nothing like Carol.
