Miller shows the audience the complicated relationship between Johnny Proctor and Abigail Williams and gives the image that Abigail and Proctor were ex- lovers. This is shown in act 1 when it is shown that they had an affair. When Abigail says ” Gah! I’d almost forgot how strong you are , John Proctor!” and ‘laughs nervously’, shows the effect that she still really likes him and acts shy around him. Both the characters seemed to enjoy the flirting going on at the start of the scene and by proctor giving a ‘knowing smile’ and ‘widening his smile’ implies that he still has a bit of feelings for her. Abigail then tells him about the dancing in the woods and he seemed to have replied in a way that shows that he is attracted to her and wants to carry on with the affair by saying, ” Ah, you’re wicked aren’t y’! “
