Season two soon jumped into a new, breathtaking storyline. Other shows will gradually introduce the viewers to a new story-arc but not Sleepy Hollow; it’s as if there was no gap between the first and second seasons. Allowing the writers to keep up the pace, and the backtracking exposition to a minimum.
Sheriff Reyes adds a new dimension to the show. She is reminiscent of Captain Irving in season one before he realised what was happening but she comes across as a tough, though seemingly fair, individual. It’s refreshing to see a female in the role as Irving is now being sectioned after a lie detector test. Reyes does not agree to having Ichabod around as she knows nothing of what is occurring around the town.
The monster was another example of flawless CGI on the parts of the show’s team. It was truly despicable and evil in appearance and the battle that ensued was action packed between three different CGI creatures, any of which would be a fantastic Hallowe'en costume.
Katrina makes a difficult choice during this episode which leads to the question of her trust. Ichabod and Abbie trust her completely and believe her choice will aid them greatly in their mission. However, Abraham tried hard to place obstacles between the relationship of Ichabod and Katrina. Will Katrina remain on the side of good or will she betray her husband and side with her evil, estranged son?
It appeared as though the writers were putting the idea of Ichabod and Abbie forming a romantic relationship in the first season, but now it’s quite clear that there is only one woman for Ichabod. However, a flashback suggests that there be more to the love triangle than meets the eye.
The season has started off strong with a brilliant story, lots of incorporated mythology and a cast of talented and professional actors to lead the way.
