In Which I Review Sleepy Hollow (3x14)
--Just in case it's not apparent, but my bafflement over the sudden about face from Abbie with regards to the Daniel situation is not because I want Abbie with Ichabod in the romantic sense. They are going to be together--as Team Witnesses--no matter what. That's the power of their bond. While there is a great spark between the two, the show does not need to turn it into romantic love for that bond to have more weight. In fact, you could argue it'd be more meaningful if they were never together romantically.
--Some very sweet and lovely Joenny moments this week. Starting to really dig those two crazy kids. Too bad Joe's probably about to go full on Windigo.
--And on the flip side, some really not great Hidden One and Pandora moments. Where exactly did he go? Did we know he could evaporate into a ball of light?
--The Dutch virus monster was one of the creepiest looking creatures we've had in a good long while.
--Magical symbol and demon map notwithstanding, that was a total Crane ex Machina in the woods.
--Abbie suggests we all "find our inner Spiderman real fast."
--Abbie got Ichabod a Netflix subscription. Bless.
--Apologies for the lateness of this review! I was out of town for the airing of 3x14 and then had to focus on my OUAT review before SH could be typed up. We now return to your regularly scheduled reviews.
