Watching the show I had one of those moments where I thought, how do they come back from this? In the “mid-season” finale, a term that still grates on my nerves, there was a glimmer of hope. Henry, a complex character played by the fantastic Noble, changed his tune and destroyed Moloch.

Things moved forward! Ichabod loves motorbikes! So many things! Watching this show still feels slightly like I’m banging my head against a wall as the plot runs itself in circles, but it was slightly more tolerable this week.
Halfway through this episode, I realized I was barely paying attention. There was a lot going on in the news I was following last night, that was obviously far more important than something like Sleepy Hollow, but where a show like this would serve as a happy distraction, it just made me angrier.
This week, Sleepy Hollow tries to get emotionally connective with Abbie and Jenny; not only offering just another monster-of-the-week, but using the ghost of Abbie and Jenny’s mom terrorizing mentally ill patients in the psychiatric facility.
There’s something that’s been completely off for me this season. It seems like the writers are scrambling in one sense for one-off plots, and dragging when it comes to the main “war is coming”, Moloch plot.
Every episode I watch of this season, I like a little less. It’s a huge bummer since I was such a huge fan of the first season, it had one of the strongest pilots of last year, its voice clear and present from the beginning with a clear direction, strong writers, and actors.
This is my least favorite Sleepy Hollow episode to date.
Sleepy Hollow has finally slowed down this week, and that’s not a bad thing. In an effort to keep ratings high, the first two episodes of the season have been a whirlwind action movie of plot, so much going on, and hitting the ground running. Not even running, sprinting is more like it.
New characters, new weapons, new things for Ichabod to hate! This week we met the new sheriff, in Corbin’s place, Louisa Reyes. I would bet a shiny new penny, that she’s not all that she seems. She knows everything about Abbie, Jenny, their mother and Ichabod. Maybe it’s my cynicism when it comes to these shows, but normally characters introduced this late in, serve the plot’s purpose in some form.
YES! I have been awaiting with baited-nerd-breath for the return of this show. Ever since Buffy the Vampire Slayer ended, Firefly was cancelled, Dollhouse was cancelled, Angel paired with Cordelia and the show died in my heart, and Fringe ended, I’ve been waiting for a show to fill that nerd-hole in my heart. Sleepy Hollow did just that.
