Sleepy Hollow Recap: Horseman, Thy Name Is…

Nov 18 2013, 9:14pm CST | by TV Line

Sleepy Hollow pop quiz, question #1: Who the heck was the Headless Horseman before he got all Hessianed-up?

Question #2: Is Andy Brooks a good guy? Bad guy? A little of both?

Question #3: How is Ichabod somehow even more fantastic than normal when losing his colonial cool?

All of the answers lie in this week’s excellent episode, “Necromancer.” Let’s review the major developments.

DEAD CAT GOT YOUR TONGUE? | The horseman is still chained up in the cell Ichabod informs us was built by Thomas Jefferson and Katrina’s coven: It’s basically a mystical containment unit for demons. Hexes and industrial-strength UV lights are keeping the baddie weak, so Ichabod’s all for jumping in there and starting the interrogation. But before we begin, a couple of housekeeping items.

First, Abbie wants to educate her fellow Witness about something very important. “Fist bump,” she says. “It’s an expression of elation, teamwork.” They are unbearably cute as they touch hands, though Ichabod doesn’t really understand the gesture. Second, without a head, the horseman needs someone to speak for him – aka a necromancer. “Maybe he’ll talk to someone who’s already dead,” Abbie suggests, leading her and Crane to Andy.

Brooks doesn’t want to help, despite his feelings for Abbie. His soul isn’t his own, he points out. Plus, “Confronting death leads to nothing but misery.” But after a sharp look from Ichabod, Andy accompanies them to the cell.

FAMILY ASSISTANCE | Meanwhile, on Jenny Crane’s first day out of the psychiatric hospital, Capt. Irving recruits her as an official member of Team WTF. She’s quite snarky about Abbie not returning her calls, but when he quietly says, “We captured him,” it cuts her sass in half.

Abbie’s sis proves a huge help when a call comes in about a robbery at a local shop for which she used to do “freelance acquisitions.” (Side note: While I don’t want a prequel spin-off centered on the other Crane sister, I would certainly read a comic book about her years of Corbin-sanctioned exploits.) Jenny’s presence helps the police realize what the robbers took – an ancient Druid hexbuster – and that the Hessians will next try to take out the cell’s source of electricity to free their faceless brother.

So Jenny and Irving don some Mission: Impossible-style black tee shirts and find the Hessians at the power plant… but not in time to stop the bad guys from blowing the grid and throwing the town – and the cell – into darkness.

DEAD MAN TALKING | Before the UV lights go off, though, Ichabod gets all up in what would be the horseman’s grill, mocking him. The fiend tosses an emerald pendant on the floor, and Ichabod instantly recognizes it as Katrina’s. Cue the flashbacks!

Ichabod’s best friend, Abraham Van Brunt, gave Katrina the necklace; he was engaged to the redheaded witch via an arranged marriage. Though Abraham loved Katrina, her heart “belongs to another,” she whispers to Ichabod. (Yep, it’s him.) So she breaks the engagement – and Abraham’s heart. In the present, Abbie sums the situation up well when she comments, “You got some game.”

The horseman, via Brooks, makes it clear that killing Ichabod is his mission – and then drops the bomb that Ichabod killed Abraham, which Crane furiously denies to Abbie. “And I believe you,” she says calmly, which cools him… a bit.

BROS BEFORE REDCOATS | He continues the story: In 1774 Philadelphia, we watch Ichabod and a despondent Abraham on a journey to deliver a precursor of the Declaration of Indpendence. Though Crane chastises his friend for loudly stepping in a puddle – and therefore possibly alerting the British to their presence – he somehow thinks they can quietly have a discussion in which Ichabod confesses that Katrina is in love with him and that they want Abraham’s blessing. Worst spy ever, Crane. Instead of having a good cry on his buddy’s shoulder, Abraham draws his sword and goads Ichabod into a duel.

Abraham has Ichabod unarmed and on the ground, but just before he can strike the coup de grace, a bullet hits him in the chest. It’s some redcoated Hessians! Ichabod tries to save Abraham, who orders him to go, so Crane makes off with the important documents just in time to save himself. Abraham dies as Ichabod watches from afar.

Back in the cell, Abbie realizes that the horseman is just trying to get under Ichabod’s skin. “I’m in control!” Ich yells, and from Abbie’s raised eyebrow, I really doubt she’s buying it. Irving and Jenny show up with the news of the missing hex breaker, and they agree that they need to grab more ammo and then hole up in the tunnels to make sure the Hessians don’t get in. Ichabod says he’s going to stay with the horseman, a decision Abbie does not think is a good one. “I’m fine,” he assures her. Oh for the love of Dana Katherine Scully, Ichabod, we know you’re not.

DEJA VU | Meanwhile, in the corner of the cell where he’s chained up, Andy pulls the missing artifact out of his body (side note: eeeew) and recites an incantation that ends the hex and acts as a beacon for more of Moloch’s minions. Abbie and Jenny are attached by demons that look like a cross between Buffy‘s Master and American Horror Story‘s Rubber Man; good thing they bust into pieces when the lieutenant shoots them.

Back in the cell, a revitalized horseman breaks his chains and grabs two swords – then tosses one to a stymied Ichabod. As Brooks protests that he had no control over his actions, the two Revolutionary transplants parry and thrust, ending up with Ichabod on the ground just like when he fought… “Abraham?” Crane says with sick realization.

LADY IN WAITING | Yes, the horseman is Ichabod’s former best friend. Through Brooks, the Hessian relates how he made a deal with Moloch – who appeared to him as he died – to get revenge on Ichabod. His prize, once he completes his task? Katrina – that’s why she’s being held in that demonic dimension.

While Ichabod reels from the revelation, Andy summons demons to the cell. He stops The Horseman Formerly Known as Abraham from killing Ichabod –”The master forbids it!” – and then has them carry him and the horseman outta there.

“We’ve found the horseman’s weakness: my wife,” Ichabod says later, as he and Abbie decompress among candles in their research room. “That’s the key, Leftenant. Now more than ever, we need Katrina.”

Now it’s your turn. What did you think of the episode? What was your favorite Ichabod line of the night? What’s your take on Andy? Anyone else worried that Jenny may not be as stable as she seems? And why do you think Moloch spared Ichabod? Sound off in the comments!
