    My sister mentioned that to me several times. TMI, sis!

    Not to mention the non-magically enhanced age of the clothes probably would have had them disintegrate as soon as anyne made an attempt to clean them, even at a dry cleaner.

    Alas, the Horseman comes looking for his skull.

    Indeed, Captain Irving has borne witness to the very existence of the Horseman with his own set of eyes. So is it ”The British are coming” or ”The Regulars are coming”?

    I forget if this has been brought up in the thread, but anyone think there is a chance Captain Irving has an ancestor named Washington?

    I believe it was mentioned that The Legend of Sleepy Hollow doesn't exist in the TV universe; therefore, no one knows Ichabod Crane as a fictional character. And for all we know, Washington Irving could have been just an average Joe back then.

    Good episode. I'd like to see how Crane will interrogate the Horseman next week. I mean, how can the Horseman talk without a head? :lol:

    Yeah, we did discuss that, but I think the writers of the show are clever enough to name drop Washington Irving some how in their alternate telling of events.

    Then perhaps they'll come up with a way to introduce a fictitious 18th century character named Washington Irving sometime later.

    I liked the historical references to Paul Revere and Sally Hemmings.

    Tricky balance all around, but "espoused"?

    OK, I'm still on board.

    I liked the internet porn chick saying "Still here!" when he peeked back. :lol:

    Another fun episode, I like that things happen in this series without taking an entire season to unfold.

    Some random thoughts:

    - Who knew skulls were so translucent?

    - Abbie is quite nicely shaped (obvious I know but I notice it anew each week...)

    - Crane and modern society/technology continues to be funny without wearing out its welcome

    - Don't know if it was intentional but Crane keeps his finger on the trigger while pro trained Abbie does not

    I'm just wondering why Abbie had that site bookmarked on her laptop.... :devil:

    ^^^ Or why it was so easy to get into that site without entering in a credit card number first. :lol:

    Not I. Thought that was kind of weird myself, that a single candle could illuminate through the bone. The ones that made up the "trail" at the end seemed to be vacuformed fakes, based on how they were being crushed. It occurs to me that they might all have been fakes and perhaps the real one was sitting down next to the main UV trap from the very beginning. Then again, IIRC, there was a scene when the horseman is supposed to be seeing the gleam of the silver on the teeth, so I dunno... :shrug:

    Indeed - although her sister seems to be slightly more athletic - better muscle definition.

    Yes, usually fish-out-of-water stories quickly get tired and cliched, but this one definitely seems to keep it interesting.

    Didn't notice that at first but I recall what you're talking about. I'd like to think it was intentional, and I do recall thinking to myself, "you know this one fires more than one round at a time, right?" :lol:

    This series continues to impress me, although I noticed a few oddities about the Masons that came out:

    • Masonic meetings are called "Communications". Regular meetings are "Stated Communications" and extra meetings not on a usual schedule are "Called Communications" or "Emergent Communications", depending on the state. Crane used the word "Assembly" - something used by an appendant branch of York Rite Masonry called "Cryptic Masons", which wasn't founded until 1792, several years after Crane's "first death" in 1781. I don't believe the word "Assembly" had ever been attributed to a Masonic meeting prior to that time.
    • Masonic buildings/groups are called "Lodges", not "Chapters". There is an appendant body of Masonry called the Royal Arch, which contains "Chapters". The fore-mentioned Cryptic Masons meet in "Councils", Masonic Knights Templar groups are called "Commanderies", and so forth. We make these verbal distinctions to differentiate between which group we're talking about - cause there are so bloody many of them!
    • Never seen a ring like that, with the square and compasses being open. Looks very simple and austere - most rings I've seen are...well...to be blunt...quite "blingy", as is most Masonic regalia. And based on dialog from the previous episode that introduced them, I gather that the members of that particular Lodge all wear the same kind of ring, which is generally not the way it works. In another appendant branch of Masonry, known as the Scottish Rite, there is a ring for the 14th degree and another one for the 33rd degree - those rings are standardized and almost everyone wears them when they go to a Scottish Rite meeting, and many wear them at other Masonic functions. Standard Square & Compass rings, however, come in all shapes, sizes and designs. A cursory search on eBay brings up tens of thousands of different ring variants. There's really no one set design that everybody wears.
    Very cool show - well written with endearing characters. Will watch this one until its end, without a doubt.

    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. :lol: 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? :confused:

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