Mary acts as a character witness before the court. She tells them she has not seen the witchcraft Elizabeth has been accused of. Her words literally did save her life, for a time.

Mary informs Elizabeth and John that she told the council "...I said I never see no sign you ever sent your spirit out to hurt no one, and seeing I do live so closely with you, they dismissed it."
