The devil is here in Salem, but even one of the most powerful people to walk on earth needs friends. When season 3 of "Salem" premieres on Nov. 2, the devil will join forces with singer Marilyn Manson's character.

Manson, who will recur in the upcoming season as the town's not-so-friendly barber/surgeon, Thomas Dinley, will team up with the devil to create hell on earth. WGN America released a sneak peek that gives a glimpse into his macabre character. Watch the teaser below. (Fair warning: The video is not for the faint-hearted).


"My character ends up being something that could be called the devil's advocate or the devil's best friend," the rocker, who also wrote the series' theme song "Cupid Carries A Gun" with composer Tyler Bates, told Entertainment Weekly, "he has no moral balance." No wonder he and the devil are bum chums.

Manson even talked about his initial struggle on how to play the part of man passionate about haircuts and surgeries. However, "Salem" director Nick Corpus simply suggested that he channel his unique personality to the character and after that, it was much easier for him.

Mason's Dinely may love cutting hairs and shaving beards, but he also loves murdering people. In fact, it is quite common for a customer to enter his barber shop and never come out. Yikes!

Series creator Brannon Braga described Thomas Dinley as having ample Vidal Sassoon and Jack the Ripper in him along with a touch of Sweeney Todd. Based on Manson's chilling dialogue in which he tells Isaac (Iddo Goldberg) that we are born and die in agony while devouring a leech, it's safe to say he will be an intriguing character.

Season 3 kicks off with the resurrection of witch Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery) after her shocking death in the season 2 finale. A war will take place between the devil and Mary since she is the only one who can take him down.

"Salem" season 3 premieres on Nov. 2.
