In Which I Review Sleepy Hollow (4x6)
--Ichabod with a giant blue Slushie (and then a brain freeze) feels very much like classic Ichabod.
--Jenny, regarding Ichabod and Abbie: "They had something special."
--Jenny's emotional journey this episode was also well done. She's right that there are "lots of ghosts in this place, but all ones I adore." In the end, she's able to see Alex and Jake as valuable teammates, who will fight by her side just as much as Abbie and Joe did.
--Making a Faraday cage is a total shout out to LOST, right?
--Look, I'm pretty familiar with ancient Egyptian mythology and that wasn't a sphinx.
--Ichabod at Abbie's grave was an emotional gut punch but it was perfectly acted and written. The Headless BobbleHead was a nice touch.
--I'm not sure I'm on the new #TeamWitness all the way yet but damn it if the show isn't selling it to me slowly, week after week.
