I think that Act two begins weeks after the initial witchcraft accusations have been made and the courts are I full session because Miller wants everyone to be able to experience it at the same time. At this time, the number of people accused goes up. Elizabeth also finds out that she has been accused and believes that Abigail is the one that accused her. John now has to find a way to tell everyone that Abigail is just faking all of this witchcraft accusations.
