Sleepy Hollow : One Life

In the last episode of Sleepy Hollow, Pandora unleashed her evil boyfriend from Hell or  limbo or whatever, and Abbie sacrificed herself, saving Jenny’s life by going through  the a portal to close it and  taking a much needed artifact with her. Good news: Abbie is still alive. Bad news: No one knows where she is, except maybe the bad guys..

I really enjoyed the return of Sleepy Hollow. I almost missed it because I hadn’t programmed my DVR to record all my shows. I did enjoy this episode but the enjoyment was bittersweet. There was no Abbie and all the characters are hurting and missing her.

Ichabod is having motorcycle escape adventures without Abbie and that’s just all kinds of wrong, (but still kinda sexy). He, Jenny and the Joe are gathering the artifacts they think they need to communicate or save Abbie, wherever she may be.

Danny is fretting over her disappearance, too. He blames Ichabod. He’s been having Ichabod spied on by Sophie Foster. I’ve decided I really like her, not least because she got broken in on  the  supernatural/occult  front and held her own. Foster has to talk Danny down from his witchhunt on Crane and deal with a mirror wraith that’s trying to kill her and Ichabod, which he inadvertently summoned in a desperate  attempt to reach Abbie.

Jenny and Joe finally kiss. I’m for this particular pairing and the show has had some fun teasing us about it. I just kept wanting the two of them to just KISS ALREADY! Sheesh! The two of them have been running around gathering up artifacts, too. Joe gets beat up again, but he also gets to come to Jenny’s rescue. Jenny gets to show her love for her sister and her vulnerable side. She doesn’t have to be a “strong, black woman”, 24/7.

There are some flashbacks to Crane’s adventures n the past, with Betsy Ross, witnessing the capture and hanging of Nathan Hale, but I didn’t pay closer attention to this part, so I got nothing.

Crane’s life is a little sadder, a little duller, without Abbie there to tease him about being him. He misses her. (We all do.) Plus he needs someone to be there to teach him how to use a microwave. I don’t know why its funny to see him walking around Abbie’s  house in his stockinged feet. Did they do that in Colonial times? Walk around the house barefoot?

Foster and Danny have history. I like the way she talks to Danny. She doesn’t actually treat him like he’s her boss or supervisor and I generally like her attitude. She had a little trouble mentally dealing with supernatural but she caught on quickly and came through in the clutch, helping to defeat the monster.

According to Jenny’s psychic map reading,  there’s going to be a Hell of a lot more monsters in the future as there seems to be some kind of grand convergence in the monster-world, thanks to Pandora’s summoning. Okay, that’s some suitably evil stuff to do. Bad Girl! Pandora’s boyfirend is being a pissy, little snot though, and he’s unlikable, but I guess that’s a feature, not a bug.

At the end of the episode, we find Abbie waking up on the ground in some sunlit cave in the middle of gob-knows-where. I hadn’t really thought she was dead. No one else acts as if she is. They all seem pretty hopeful that Abbie is okay.

This wasn’t actually a great episode. It was just okay. I think I just missed these characters and I’m glad to see them all again.

Now I’ve got one show to watch every night of the week. I can’t possibly do recaps for all of them but I can do these shorter reviews, highlighting my thoughts about the episodes. The show Second Chance comes on right after Sleepy Hollow but I don’t think Sleepy Hollow is going to save it. You know how I know this. I turned the channel, anyway. I will continue to do this until whatever follows Sleepy hollow is a much better show.

    They were so obvious. It was a just a question of when. I wasn’t really invested in them but I like them as a couple now. They have chemistry and Joe’s a good fit for Jenny.

    I’m annoyed at the way they treat Abby’s love life and a lot more invested in hers. Since the beginning of the show, she has a parade of men interested in her, ready to court her and even declaring her love for her but she’s written as this robot who only cares about her job. I’m extremely annoyed at the way she’s written and I bet a ‘different’ character would have been allowed to show a larger range of emotions by now and I don’t know, go on at least one date to be wined and dined by her man, but here goes reliable, hardworking, I don’t need no man Abby. They keep throwing men at her but make sure to write her like an ice queen. Don’t like it.

    I disliked Foster overly aggressive attitude in the beginning but ever since she’s learned about the supernatural, she’s become a great asset and a lot more tolerable. She can stay lol.
