2. Not sure what the problem is here. In the subsequent scenes he tells them that crane and the boy are being transferred. Mills steals the ambulance and that's how they escape. Did you take a pee break at the wrong time?

Damn.. I must have.. I don't remember ANY of that..
Yeah, they explain that an overflow facility has been set up to handle the deluge of new victims and that Crane and Plague Boy are being relocated to the new facility . . . or so they say!

I was actually understanding the Middle English without the subtitles for a few minutes there.
Which is funny, because i was able to, somehow, hear through the German influences on that language, which made it sound more German at moments than the actual German last week.
A professor I had spoke a passage in Middle English in class, then asked for descriptions. Those given were off, to me, so I offered: the harshness of German, with a bit of the nasalness of Swedish, toss in some lilt of Irish, and then speak as if you had marbles in your mouth. She said I nailed it!

ETA: As soon as I heard Middle English, all I could think of was NOOOOOOOO!!!!! Wrong era! Middle English in the 1400s, this was MUCH later. But...it's just a tv show. Still, a silly choice.

In the Sleepy Hollow-verse, the citizens of Roanoke were huge Chaucer fanatics and chose to speak Middle English in tribute.

^ Best explanation!

I just learned from Entertainment Weekly that this will be a short season of Sleepy Hollow. I'm excited to see Fringe's John Noble in upcoming episodes.

I said that about Burn Notice and they kept on putting the same opening narration in front of every episode season after season. They even included it in the series finale. Overkill!
They need to just do "Story so far" to the tune of "Carry on Wayward Son" and get it over with.

I mean that in a good way.

Re: Sleepy Hollow (Spoilers)

I'm surprised no one is talking about how easily Crane's alibi as a visiting professor from England was confirmed by stereotypical suspicious ex-boyfriend cop. What's up with that? I'm pretty intrigued.

Supernatural does have the best recaps.

I suspect the university said they never had such a professor, and the boyfriend is saving the info for just the right moment.

^No, we heard the voice on the other end of Morales's phone, and they confirmed that Crane was indeed an Oxford professor. So we know that Crane does have a cover story in place. We just don't know yet who arranged it for him.

Agreed.

Crane himself wouldn't be thinking about these issues. My vote goes to Capt. Irving, who is being more and more supportive as things go on, he recognizes Morales' (ex-boyfriend) propensity for sticking his nose in Abby's business, and he has some authority to request co-operation from the university.

I noticed that immediately at the time, but didn't bring it up here.

I like the story of the week and the mythology, so far.

Re: Sleepy Hollow (Spoilers)

So! The "Templar Knights" are coming up soon, and the shot of a Masonic square & compasses. Figured it was only a matter of time, considering the prolific nature of Masonry amongst the Founding Fathers and the fraternity's ties to Templary. I'm hoping this won't be another Hollywood hatchet job, though. A Dan Brown-style treatment would be preferable. We shall see...

Re: Sleepy Hollow (Spoilers)

Ichabod and Abby return tonight on a new episode. Good to see Walter too!

I liked Ichabod and Katrina's history - how they first met. He was an ambitious duty-bound British officer, a good man whose conscience prevailed and who did the right thing when Katrina told him he had a gift, the power to bear witness and see demons and their true forms. "Evil grows when good men do nothing. "

All this time Crane felt responsible for Cicero's death, and thus he needed to be sanctified. The revolutionary's death meant Ichabod's salvation, though he perceived it as his sin.

This show just gets better every episode.
