SLEEPY HOLLOW: Ichabod Crane vs. the 21st Century, 12/01/14


Whew, sorry for my tardiness, everyone! Between last week being decidedly light on the laughs for our favorite apocalyptic Scooby gang, and this week seeing me overcome by the need to get started on my holiday baking inexplicably at 9pm on a Monday night, I didn’t get a chance to get this written until this morning.

Anyway, what an episode last night! There will be more thoughts to come, but in the mean time, here is Ichabod’s highlight reel to tide us all over until we have time to process the doozy of a midseason finale. (Even if it felt more like a season finale!)

  1. Ichabod vs. Abbie’s car GPS system: “Forgive me for not trusting an electronic device during an apocalyptic storm!”
  2. Nothing like an impending apocalypse to sway one’s morals regarding personal freedom and property: “If ever there were justification to commandeer a vehicle, the apocalypse would be it.”
  3. Ichabod learns firsthand why motorcycles are the most dangerous vehicles on the road: “But where do I buckle?” Safety first, always! I think someone’s been studying the highway code! (Bonus quote from that exchange: “Perhaps there is a stable nearby?” Because being on a horse would be so much safer at this point.)
  4. … Ichabod also learns why motorcycles are the most exhilarating vehicles on the road after his ride-along: “I want one of these as soon as [the apocalypse] is over!” (Can’t you just picture him in a helmet and goggles and a jaunty scarf?)
  5. “Enough deceit! We have an apocalypse to halt!” If I had a nickel for every time I’ve said that…
  6. “Our marriage has been under a lot of strain as late.” You can say that again, Ichabod.
  7. Ichabod vs. a bar full of blonde co-eds: “There is freedom worth fighting for.”
  8. Ichabod and Katrina discover the meaning of “taking a break.” Hopefully, for their sakes, their apocalypse-fighting break doesn’t involve a copy shop clerk.

It seems so trivial to focus on the modern-day conundrums when there was so much heroism and heartbreak in last night’s episode, but what can you do?

What was your favorite moment from last night’s episode?


Nels knew how to operate a TV remote control before she knew how to talk. As a result, she has spent an inordinate amount of time pretending she actually lives on a soundstage. When she isn’t watching whichever show is currently capturing her heart, she is writing about how said show is currently capturing her heart. She loves pie.
