Sleepy Hollow 2.17 – Awakening

Given the episode title, I think we all expected some revelations to surface in “Awakening”; what we might not have realized was how much the series itself would wake up, finally tackling work we’ve been waiting to see this entire season. Seeing Abbie and Ichabod somehow returning to a time when they must explore their roles as Witnesses, instead of just talking about it in circles? Watching Katrina at last beginning to develop a character and purpose? The series delving into what the hell makes Sleepy Hollow so Sleepy Hollow-y and re-embracing that? Check, check, and check.  Let’s dive in, shall we? Continue reading

Sleepy Hollow 2.16 – What Lies Beneath

A group of engineers makes use of Ichabod’s old Cave Grave set to stumble upon a spooky looking seal on the floor. “Don’t you want to see what’s down there?” the most curious one asks. “Honestly? No!” another answers.

Smart dude!  But pffftt, you think a completely understandable wariness about what this next episode might bring to an already-rocky second season of Sleepy Hollow is going to stop any of us from taking the plunge?  HELLS NO!  *dives inside* Continue reading

Sleepy Hollow 2.15 – Spellcaster

It’s so hard to decide who gets the best opening to this episode — our villain of the week with his colonial-duds meets Mind Freak-y appearance, immediately launching into scary magical book stealing, blood-sizzling, Darth Vader-strangling ways? Ichabod, scowling at squeaky fake bananas but won over by a realtor’s marketing-blitz mini-muffins as he optimistically starts house-hunting for himself and Katrina? (Oh my god, WITH WHAT MONEY; isn’t Abbie still supporting the Cranes 1000%?) How about Henry Parrish, who apparently killed the guardian of Purgatory just so he could mope around at a motel, eating take-out and whittling? Or is it Katrina, dangling a daisy and doing petal tricks while she fibs about mourning her wayward Horseman son Henry instead of revealing she suspects he’s back in town?

Oh, how I wish I had a fun little match up graphic quiz for whatever answer you chose, telling you what patriotic cupcake you’re most like! Sshhh, we both know you’re Revolutionary Raspberry, filled with cunning supernaturally-focused rewrites of American History and topped with a decadent chocolate ganache that tastes like ~freedom~.

Sleepy Hollow 2.14 – Kali Yuga

While Abbie karaoke-s the hell out of “Crazy” (damn but Nicole Beharie’s got a lovely voice) and Ichabod “Huzzah!”s his support from a bar stool, Jenny delicately points out that it “just seems you two have been spending a lot less time together lately.” Hey, someone besides the viewers noticed. Huzzah indeed!  Continue reading

Sleepy Hollow 2.13 – Pittura Infamante

A restorer works meticulously on a canvas, but its red paint seemingly becomes liquid. Yup, that’s blood (“Blood!” the actor cries unnecessarily). At first I thought it was dripping from the ceiling, because there’s nothing quite like a little still-bleeding corpse hidden in the rafters, am I right? But nope, it’s coming from the painting itself. Frantically, he smears it all over (way to ruin your work, guy), yet moments later the blood is gone.

Remember how last week I said I wanted more focus on Ichabod and Abbie together, instead of Abbie merely acting the supporting role to the Crane marriage woes? Our next scene initially screams pay dirt: two snarky Witnesses spending time together, this round bickering over modern dress (“how can one be both business and casual?” Ichabod grumps over yet another confusing contemporary code).  Continue reading
