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

Sleepy Hollow 1.13 – Bad Blood

SLEEPY HOLLOW BANNER 01 HDJMPreviously on Sleepy Hollow:  well, we got the first part of this twist-a-licious two-part season finale, the recap of which went up yesterday.  Check it out if you’re just tuning in!  And now onto Part Deux.

Henry Parrish wakes after a rush of visions, including Moloch summoning an evil, an eclipse, a Horseman galloping with a flaming sword, and that scary demonic growl translated to “Come and See.”  HOCRAP.

Gazing at the Hudson, Ichabod suddenly spies a woman with red hair running in colonial garb.  Is it Katrina, appearing to him in a visionary dream?  Oh my god, lolololol, nope: it’s a sassy Revolutionary War Reenactor/Cosplayer!  That’s not Katrina’s auburn locks you’re seeing Ichabod, but proper Fangirl Red.  Continue reading
