SLEEPY HOLLOW Recap: ‘Awakening’

February 16, 2015 by  
Filed under Sleepy Hollow, TV News

sleepy-Did Katrina’s coven just perform an awakening ritual on this show? I haven’t been so excited about a SLEEPY HOLLOW twist since the season 1 finale, and the show hasn’t felt so full of ridiculous potential since the pilot. That’s fitting. The final minutes of this episode felt like a finale and a pilot all in one, and the fact that it was technically a normal week — that we get to keep going — is what sets this show apart when it’s at its best. (What’s that the producers were saying about making SLEEPY HOLLOW less serialized?) It took us too much time to get here, and we have too little time left, but let’s enjoy it while it lasts.

Comments Off on SLEEPY HOLLOW Recap: ‘What Lies Beneath’

Tonight’s SLEEPY HOLLOW goes out to anyone who ever loved Frank Irving and everyone who never knew they needed a hologram founding father — so it’s for all of us, really. There might be some logical holes in this one, but it brings the heart and insanity that define this show, and just in time.

SLEEPY HOLLOW has spent a lot of time making excuses this season. Katrina lies, Irving is locked in a blood contract, and Henry has daddy issues, but it’s complicated, right? Not anymore. The push for redemption is over, everyone is embracing the darkness, and for the second week in a row, it feels like we’re moving in the right direction. Read more

Anyone else feel like the real SLEEPY HOLLOW is coming back? “Kali Yuga” looked like it was going to be a Hawley-centric throwaway, another 45 minutes of wheel-spinning in a season that’s taken too long to go anywhere, but it turned out to be a solid episode of television that ended with a jolt and started as a joke in the writers’ room. Now we’re getting somewhere.

At this point, SLEEPY HOLLOW could turn knitting into a nightmare. You thought art restoration was safe? Nothing is safe on this show. Lock up your paintings; there might be a murderer in the brush strokes.

Comments Off on SLEEPY HOLLOW Recap: ‘Paradise Lost’

Welcome back, SLEEPY HOLLOW fans! We left our team where they always seem to find themselves: in mortal danger. Moloch killed Frank. Henry killed Moloch. Did either of these deaths stick? Did they change anything? And if they did — if this is a Sleepy Hollow without mortal danger — what does that mean for Abbie and Ichabod? Read more

Does anyone else feel like this season of SLEEPY HOLLOW just got started? Abbie and Ichabod finally have a lead in the fight against Moloch: her ancestor’s journal, which could contain a weapon strong enough to cut down the demon. Everything is moving in one direction again. A sense of purpose looks as good on this show as it does on our Witnesses.

If Abbie and Ichabod are the heart of SLEEPY HOLLOW, Abbie and Jenny are the backbone. The show is always better for exploring their history, and tonight, the Mills family tree could hold the key to understanding why Abbie was called to be a Witness in the first place. Let’s get to it.

SLEEPY HOLLOW fans, Katrina is in the building. Specifically, she’s in Ichabod’s cabin, and whether you’re glad to see her or would like her to go away, you can take comfort in this: modern society now has twice as many people to confuse. Ichabod and Katrina are using THE BACHELOR as a vehicle to discuss their own feelings (colonial Americans: they’re just like us!), and it’s clear that they still have some differences to work through.

SLEEPY HOLLOW fans, is anyone else ready for Henry to have other parents? For all of the poison spiders, blood contracts, and malicious sweaters, maybe the most dangerous thing about Henry Parish is something he has no control over. Being Ichabod and Katrina’s son is his permanent trump card, and he knows how to hold it against them, playing up his last shred of humanity in order to earn their sympathy. At some point, they’ll have to draw the line.

SLEEPY HOLLOW Recap: ‘And the Abyss Gazes Back’

Stretch it out, SLEEPY HOLLOW fans. It’s hard work being a witness in the battle between good and evil, and Abbie thinks that yoga could be just what she and Ichabod need — not only to relieve stress, but to strengthen themselves for the fight ahead. Of course, Ichabod hates it, but his hair stays loose and curly for a good long while, so it’s not a total loss.

Every week is Halloween on SLEEPY HOLLOW, but this episode feels especially suited to the season, doesn’t it? The Weeping Lady is classically spooky. She’s a local legend made real, and she has a connection to Crane. Moloch could probably play Six Degrees of Ichabod Crane with his whole army at this point.

Buckle your seat belts, SLEEPY HOLLOW fans: Ichabod Crane can drive. He doesn’t have his license yet — and he probably won’t be able to get it until he’s complained at length about parallel parking — but thanks to Jenny’s training, he is technically proficient behind the wheel. Who needs the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse when you’ve got the power of 300 horses in one throttle? Read more

SLEEPY HOLLOW fans, in case you were worried, this episode put two fears to rest right at the start. First of all, Ichabod Crane’s disdain for banks isn’t going anywhere. Second, no jail cell can hold Jenny Mills for long; Abbie got her out in exchange for community service. But of course, when one problem is solved, three new ones crop up. Grab your stained glass, and let’s get to it.

Welcome back, SLEEPY HOLLOW fans! Summer is long to begin with (it’s hot and nothing is pumpkin spiced), but this one felt especially endless without Tom Mison’s left eyebrow to keep us company. No show left us with more cliffhangers last year than SLEEPY did. Henry is Katrina and Ichabod’s son — and the Horseman of War. Katrina is held by the Horseman of Death, who also happens to be her ex-fiancé. Crane is buried alive. Abbie is stuck in purgatory. What are we waiting for?
