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 2.04 – Go Where I Send Thee…

sh 201 promo image abbie ichabod branches

Previously on Sleepy Hollow, evil coins, evil doings, evil sheriffs.  EVIL.

Someone must have felt the fog machine guy for Sleepy Hollow wasn’t getting enough chances to show us the ol’ razzle dazzle. Because when a little girl in pajamas walks in a daze from her family’s historical mansion (down a fancy-schmancy spiral staircase, no less), outside and through the gate, she is surrounded by a veritable sea of lovely foggy night. Good job, fog machine guy! Wait, get back inside your house, seemingly-hypnotized kid! Continue reading

Sleepy Hollow 2.03 – Root of All Evil

Previously on Sleepy Hollow:  Ichabod and Abbie tried to stop a binding ceremony on Katrina; Frank Irving was treated wretchedly (I will never forgive anyone about this), and there’s a new sheriff in town.  For real.

This week!  It’s time for spooky DIY crafts! Oh look, it’s an adorable exact tiny replica…of Tarrytown Psychiatric. Interesting choice. Henry Parrish finishes painting the replica and smiles. Well, that certainly doesn’t bode well.  Continue reading

Sleepy Hollow 2.02 – The Kindred

Previously on Sleepy Hollow, we thought the show was jerking us around! But it was only Purgatory jerking reality, Ichabod, and Abbie around. Plus Benjamin Franklin was a merry nudist puzzle-poser of an encrypting funster. HISTORY!

The Headless Horseman takes Katrina to a ritual circle with fire where, Henry tells her, they will “complete the ceremony” bonding the two of them. There’s wrist binding and hand cutting (this show loves its ceremonial hand-slashing, tbh). “You must be like him in every way,” Henry explains to Katrina as the Horseman takes a wide swing at her pretty head with his axe and…

“You were having a nightmare?” Abbie asks Ichabod as he startles awake. Yeah. So. I’d like to nominate myself as current Queen of Stating the Obvious, as last night I said aloud, “You know, this show likes to mess with our heads,” as though this was actual newsContinue reading

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?

Hey now, hang on a sec, you say — as I did last night — this isn’t the way last season ended. What about Ichabod being trapped by Henry in the coffin? 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
