Sleepy Hollow 2.01 – This Is War

If there’s anything we learned from last season of Sleepy Hollow, it’s that all the little pesky problems of life — you know, being raised from the dead, having your former best friend turn into a horseman of the apocalypse, witnessing your wife suffering in Purgatory, losing your badass new best friend and fellow Witness to the end of days in a demonic exchange, and finding out your Sin Eater son who is twice your age is now the embodiment of War, that kind of stuff — all of these flies in the ointment can get better if someone just gives you a cupcake.

But not just any cupcake! Abbie Mills gives Ichabod Crane the most splendiferously patriotic cupcake as a surprise! “I shall consider myself punk’d,” Ichabod says sullenly, asking about Abbie’s ‘surprise’ party, “why must your error celebrate terror with dessert?” Um, because of the deliciousness?

Or Abbie getting shut in Purgatory to rescue Katrina? And though things looked bad for Jenny and Katrina, we didn’t actually see them die, as Abbie and Ichabod seem to feel they did in tonight’s ep. Well, hang on to your patriotic cupcakes, friends, because we’re in the middle of an it’s-all-a-dream moment; clever that Sleepy Hollow is, though, we’re just as befuddled at first as Abbie and Ichabod are about which reality is which.  Continue reading

Previously on Sleepy Hollow:  The Sandman, oh my god, THE SANDMAN!

Guess who was all up in the Boston Tea Party?  Our pal Ichabod!  Turns out that whole tea-dumping tax protest brouhaha was really a cover for Colonel Washington’s orders to retrieve a mystical crate (and make sure Ichabod came back alive — anyone else having Ichabod/George Washington feelings?  Just me?  *slinks away*).  Continue reading
