Sleepy Hollow 2.08 – Heartless

sh 201 promo image abbie ichabod branches

Previously, a world of nope at Katrina’s demonic pregnancy.   This week, Ichabod and Katrina argue in stylized yet passionate terms about love.  For a moment I thought, oh my god, this must be the live action version of Jenny’s crack parody fanfic of Ichtrina (is that the right smoosh name?)!  We’re going to see a reveal pull back of Jenny at her laptop, sniggering over her vanilla soy latte! But then it turns out Ichabod and Katrina are just bickering as they watch a Bachelor-style reality show.  Meh.  I like my idea way better.  Continue reading

Sleepy Hollow 2.07 – Deliverance

sh 201 promo image abbie ichabod branches

Last week! Now, Ichabod and Katrina share early morning flashback cuddles, spent musing about all the swell kids they’ll have. Haha, it’s funny because their real kid is the Horseman of the Apocalypse! Geesh, I think I could live without that image of the spider skittering out of Ichabod’s mouth at the end of the nightmare forever. But then again, I could live without this whole demonic pregnancy trope forever and a day.

Sleepy Hollow 2.06 – And the Abyss Gazes Back

sh 201 promo image abbie ichabod branches

Last week! And now, oh no, are Ichabod and Abbie caught in mortal danger? No, they’re just doing wisecracking yoga together so we can see Tom Mison in sexy workout pants and have the two of them chat about the best slang for butts (Ichabod’s “double jug” is sure to catch on with the kids these days).  Continue reading

Sleepy Hollow 2.05 – The Weeping Lady

sh 201 promo image abbie ichabod branches

Previously on Sleepy Hollow, Pied Piper Bone Flute Child Sacrifice Generational Curse. Yeah, that about covers it. Plus, bonus delicious cappuccino!

Oh my goodness, Ichabod has gone and made himself a friend! All by himself! I have hearts in my eyes. She thinks she’s making him new clothes (and gosh, it’s nice of her to not to mention he might still smell a bit like cave grave) to support his “dedication to colonial reenactment,” and Ichabod thinks Betsy Ross herself would admire Caroline’s handiwork.  Continue reading

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

sh 201 promo image abbie ichabod branches

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

sh 201 promo image abbie ichabod branches

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

sh 201 promo image abbie ichabod branches

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

Sleepy Hollow 1.12 – The Indispensable Man

SLEEPY HOLLOW BANNER 01 HDJM

Previously on Sleepy Hollow.  Okay, stop.  It’s the end of the world.  Ichabod Crane apparently has gotten a cell phoneContinue reading
