Sleepy Hollow Recap: Fire in the Hole!

Sep 23 2013, 10:14pm CDT | by TV Line

Ichabod Crane encounters a force stronger than anything he’s seen before in this week’s Sleepy Hollow, and it makes for a powerful moment.

The time-transplanted hero has his first run-in with donut holes, and it’s a big deal. That’s the kind of thing that changes a man forever.

There’s also a crispy witch who’s connected to the mirror demon, the first appearance of Abbie’s messed-up sister, and just because Andy’s dead doesn’t mean he’s off duty. Let’s take a quick gallop through the highlights of “Blood Moon.”

WHAT A WITCH | This week’s Big Bad is Serilda, an evil witch burned at the stake by Sleepy Hollow townsfolk (with an assist from Ichabod’s good-witch honey Katrina) back in the day. She’s resurrected by Andy, who’s still quite dead but who at least has his head screwed on straight again, via some demonic mumbo-jumbo. (Note: I mock the mirror demon because he scares the pee out of me.) Ichabod and Abbie realize she’s trying to get back into her earthly body, and leaving a trail of charred corpses along the way, so they trail her to where her bones were buried and then torch her by setting fire to trunks of leftover Revolutionary War gunpowder.

LOVE STORIES | Before Serilda dies, she lets it slip that Katrina is imprisoned in a “world between worlds,” giving Crane hope that he and his wife may someday reunite. Other Katrina facts divulged during the ep: She didn’t like Ichabod when they first met, and her coven worked against dark witches like Serilda, the types of ladies George Washington suspected were colluding with the British Army. We also meet Luke, a cop who does not like Ichabod but who is Abbie’s ex. They broke up because she was heading to Quantico; so where does that leave them now, Ichabod wonders?

TURNING POINT | Abbie attends Sheriff Corbin’s funeral; as Ichabod intuits from her reaction to his death, they were close. The lieutenat reveals that after the incident in the woods with her sister, she turned to drugs and got busted breaking into a pharmacy with her boyfriend. Corbin took her to a diner and gave her the time it took him to eat a piece of apple pie to figure out which way she wanted her life to go; makes their scene in the diner in the pilot more poignant, no? Corbin appears to Abbie in a vision (?) at the end of the episode and tells her “Don’t be afraid of #49.” Cut to a mental hospital, where Abbie’s institutionalized (and jacked!) sister Jenny is spitting out her meds on the sly and getting visited by the mirror demon, though it’s unclear whether or not she knows he’s there.

SAFE PASSAGE | Ichabod alerts Abbie to a series of tunnels the Revolutionary Army dug under the town; as someone who watched All My Children for years, I can only hope these passageways will see the same kind of high foot traffic that the Chandler Mansion ones did.

CRANE CHECK-IN | Ichabod is living in a motel, where he is kept under police watch. He’s got a photographic memory and speaks a bunch of languages. And he has a cover now — history professor on leave from Oxford — and is learning about modern conventions like showers and coffee makers. The donut-hole bit, from his initial realization that they are little bits of heaven to his outrage over the tax, gets a big laugh from me. I would, however, like to see him a little more freaked out about the fact that his wife is, essentially, dead and that he can’t remember entire centuries. For me, the fact that this show’s premise is bananapants-crazy doesn’t matter, as long as the relationship between Abbie and Crane feels real. We saw a little bit of her pain and confusion this week, with him as a kind support. Let’s hope the converse happens in the near future.

WHO’S YOUR STYLIST? | I can’t have been the only person to notice that, for much of the episode, Ichabod and Abbie were rocking the same hairdo, right?

Now it’s your turn! What did you think of the episode? Sound off in the comments!
