SLEEPY HOLLOW 3×02: Ichabod Crane vs. the 21st Century

What a week for our favorite Witnesses! Pandora’s box may be metaphorical at this point, but it doesn’t mean she isn’t wreaking havoc amongst unsuspecting bystanders. Ichabod may defiantly refuse to share his secrets with her, but it seems pretty obvious she won’t be ignored, and our heroes better watch out.

What might be even more daunting? Ichabod and Abbie are forced to be roommates, and it’s as delicious as you’d expect. Sitcom hijinks ensue! But if it means we get the partners sharing a tender moment on the porch every week, revealing their innermost fears to each other one story at a time, then I think we’re going to learn a lot more than how not to burn our breakfasts.

  1. Whistling while you work — or singing sea shanties — is always an acceptable way to pass the time while doing some spring cleaning. Just call him Ichabod Poppins!
  2. … Accidentally stumbling along Abbie’s lingerie while doing the laundry, on the other hand, is a decidedly more delicate matter. (Bet Betsy Ross‘ corsets didn’t look like that.)

  3.  “Our first week as roommates, and I befouled the kitchen!” Ichabod trying to cook in Abbie’s (beautiful) kitchen is everything I could have ever hoped for, in that it ended disastrously. (Hey, at least he didn’t try to turn on the oven by lighting a match…)
  4. Ichabod gives as good as he got last week, prying into Abbie’s personal life.
    Ichabod: I sensed something between you [and Agent Reynolds] that was more than professional.
    Abbie: Yeah? Mind your own business.
    (BANTER!)
  5. Of course, what is the modern world without an existential crisis or two? Luckily for Ichabod (and Abbie), they have that Pottery Barn-inspired porch swing on which to ruminate over such matters.

  6. This moment totally counts, because it couldn’t have happened if Ichabod hadn’t woken up in 2013 to find Abbie Mills:
    “Of course, having you by my side is the greatest boon.”
  7. Ichabod might just find a second career as a therapist once he’s done saving the world, if his advice to Abbie about finding her father is any indication.

  8. Ichabod vs. bureaucratic red tape! Just because you think you can doesn’t mean you actually, you know, can. “I consider myself an American.” Well I consider myself a rock star, doesn’t mean I’m selling out arenas. (In other words, he better start studying, because in 2015, it isn’t enough to yell “I AM AMERICAN!” like Michael Scott to change your citizenship…)

How are you folks liking season 3 so far?

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.
