John Proctor's Final Consequence

            Aristotle's definition of a tragic hero is a person who is good and decent but has a major flaw which leads to their downfall. John's mistake with Abby was more of a flaw. It was a decision that changed his life forever. In the play The Crucible, playwright Arthur Miller demonstrates how revenge can spread faster than wildfire. Abby is paying Goody Proctor back for kicking her out of the house as role as the family servant and breaking her and John apart. John's death was merely a mix of wrong decisions and a final consequence that cost him his life. If John hadn't gotten involved with Abby in the past, she wouldn't still be in love with his wife and drink a charm to kill her, or accuse her of murder and witchcraft or even accuse him of being the devil. .
             If John hadn't gotten involved with Abby, she wouldn't have drank blood or a potion to kill Elizabeth. Even if Abby wasn't involved with John, she could've gone into the forest with the other girls to dance and drink a potion to kill others. As the girls were standing in Betty's room alone talking about what Reverend Parris knew, Betty sits up in bed and screams "You drank blood, Abby! You drank a charm to kill Goody Proctor! "(1097). As everyone comes back upstairs, the girls blame it on Tituba, but it backfires on Abby when Tituba tells Reverend Hale "She beg me to conjure! She beg me charm-! "(1109). She is smarter than people think and she made it seem like it was all Tituba's fault. Making Tituba the blame, it will take the spotlight off her so she can find another way to kill Elizabeth so she can be the only one to have John. .
             Because Elizabeth had kicked Abigail out of their house, she had made it worse for the hatred towards her that came from Abigail, which made Abigail want to accuse her for murder and witch craft even more. While Hale is visiting the Proctor's, Cheever walks in the door looking for Elizabeth saying quietly "I have a warrant for your wife.
