Re: Sleepy Hollow (Spoilers)

Great episode. I love that Capt. Irving actually got to get in on the action this week. John Cho came back! I wonder what he meant when he kept saying he was protecting Abbie?
I did not expect to see them capture the Horseman like this. Next week's should be very interesting.

He's got a thing for Abbie. He's trying to protect her from - you know - dying.

Blimey! The glass armonica was such a remarkable piece of musical instrument!

What a revelation. The Horseman is none other than Ichabod's old friend Abraham, who was in love with Katrina and felt betrayed by Ichabod.

So is Brooks alive or dead? He's certainly not a living dead. John Cho delivered quite a creepy vocal performance as the Horseman's spokesperson. What he did to save Ichabod's life was commendable, and I wonder if we'll ever see him again.

Where do you look when you're talking to the Horseman?

To the Horseman, of course, although Brooks did all the talking.

^I think Forbin is asking, what part of the Horseman do you look at when there's no face or eyes?

I suppose I should've seen this revelation coming. In the original Washington Irving story, Abraham Van Brunt, aka "Brom Bones," is Ichabod Crane's rival for the hand of Katrina Van Tassel, and is implied to have faked the apparition of the Headless Horseman in order to scare Crane away. Although they've totally changed things around here, of course.

And yes, I loved the glass armonica! Why don't we use those anymore?

As for Andy saving Crane, I don't think it was commendable, since he was just relaying Moloch's orders. Evidently Moloch wants Ichy alive for some reason.

Ohh. That makes sense. I didn't get the part about Moloch, but I do remember Brooks say, "The master forbids it" or something to that end.

Yeah, when he said "the Master forbids it"... I thought he was making it up. But when the shadow guys came and took them both away I figured... he was right!

Speaking of the bad guys, they didn't have any trouble showing up at the end... why did they keep failing when Brooks first called them? Did the Master "forbid" his minions from rescuing the horseman too soon, so Morloch could figure out what was going on with his "head" minion?

Why does the Horseman turn as if looking around or listening? Does he need light to "see" by?

That was after Andy broke the hex protecting the hideout. When he pulled the thing out he used to summon I believe he also broke the hex.
As for the episode, I enjoyed it. Before this episode started I didn't expect such a personal connection between Ichabod and Death. As the episode went on, I did start to wonder if he was going to be Abraham. I like the team the seem to have truly set in place this episode. I wonder why Moloch is so concerned with Ichabod? I'm assuming it must have something to do with his role as a Witness.

Re: Sleepy Hollow (Spoilers)

Good episode tonight. We learned two things: Ichabod and Katrina had a son, and Grace Dixon, Mr. Lachlan's house matron who helped deliver Katrina's baby, was the ancestor of Abbie Mills.

The tree monster reminded me of Swamp Thing and wasn't really much of a threat to Ichabod and Abbie.

Walter returns in a couple of weeks.
