Both Abigail and Elizabeth remind John of his affair, and won’t let him forget it. Abigail reminds him of the affair to try and get him to go back to her. Elizabeth shows us that she is constantly reminding him, because she is always disappointed in him. John reacts differently to both of the women about the affair throughout the play.

She knows that John has a wife, and 3 kids, but that’s still not stopping her on what she plans on doing.

Elizabeth is disappointed in John throughout the play, her being disappointed shows Proctor that she is still very upset at him for what he did to her. “He gets up, goes to her kisses her. She receives it with a certain disappointment he returns to the table” (48) John is trying to make Elizabeth happy, because he hurt her and he’s trying to make up for it...
