Sleepy Hollow has just one more episode before it takes a break for the Christmas season. We’re promised an epic mid-season finale, but how was the episode leading up to it?
With Ichabod out of action, Horley and Jenny help Abbey on her case. But this doesn’t mean Ichabod was missing entirely. Despite it taking him this long to catch a cold, which seems odd when his immune system was used to a completely different time and diseases, the audience get to see him suffering from his affliction. The best moment was when he couldn’t get past the child lock on the bottle of tablets, and when Horley drugs him.
The atmosphere for this entire episode was dark and foggy with little natural lighting, giving it a trapped and isolated feel. The scenes had very little furniture in them, but the few pieces that were there were scattered or few and far between, meaning there was a lot of space and not many places to hide. The music was phenomenal, especially as Jenny and Abbey are uncovering the mural painted on the wall by their mother. The soundtrack was full of mystery and intrigue, while at the same time pulling on the heartstrings.
Katrina appears to have been poisoned by Henry once again. When will she stop falling for this? She is goaded into holding the baby, who appears to be a newborn, but is a young child by the end of the episode and is talking! In a scene reminiscent of The Omen, this devil child will play a large role in the future.
The trailer for the mid-season finale looks epic, as promised. The devil child looks to be a moody, evil teenager, Henry appears to have an army with him and Abbey is making jokes about their consistently dangerous lives. Abbey and Ichabod are on a quest for a weapon that can supposedly kill Moloch once and for all and Ichabod comes face to face with a still angry Abraham. If the episode is as good as the trailer, it looks like they will be following through with their promise of an epic finale!
