Proctor again presents Mary Warren’s deposition, which states that “she never saw Satan; nor any spirit, vague or clear, that Satan may have sent to hurt her. And she declares her friends are lying now.” At this point, realizing the seriousness of the statement, Hale suggests that Proctor return with a lawyer to present this claim. Hale has begun to see how uncertain the evidence is against those who have been condemned to die.
