In a case of the most amazing father/son casting since Mufasa and Simba (seriously, those lions are, like, twins!), Joe Corbin (the late Sheriff August Corbin’s son, and a kid Abbie used to babysit) has returned to Sleepy Hollow from Afghanistan bringing with him a whole lot of change!
Abbie feels like Joe has changed into kind of a dick (among other things), Abbie finds herself reflecting on the role Sheriff Corbin played in changing her from a delinquent to an upstanding citizen, Frank is changing from a good guy to a bad guy, and even staid Ichabod is changing from an “updo” to a more “free and breezy” hairstyle!
Congratulations Joe, you’ve experienced “the change”! You are finally a woman! Oh, did I say woman? I meant “Wendigo!” My bad.
This bad-ass creature is tearing around Sleepy Hollow, and tearing out the guts of Sleepy Holloweenians. As Joe has been the sole survivor of not one, but 2 of these attacks, Crane and Mills deduce that Joe and and the Wendigo are one in the same. So far, eating the entrails of a human victim is the only way Joe can change back, but that is rejected by Ichabod and Abbie as an infeasible long-term solution.
Ichabod and Abbie call Nick in to help them find a cure to what ails young Joe. Now, I’m trying to not be a fair-weather shipper, but when Nick looks at Abbie like this:
I’m like: Ichabbie who? Holy shitballs! Did you see that? My toes are curling so hard I’m getting a class 5 foot cramp! Nickabbie UR killing me with the good feels! With all this love what could possibly go wrong? Oh yeah, this:
AWKWARD!!!!!! Jenny was just kissing up on him last week, and now Nick’s turning his smolder onto the sister. Speaking of change, Jenny is clearly tempted to “change his face.”
Turns out, Henry the prodigal son is behind the mayhem AGAIN! Not only has he stolen Frank Irving’s soul and doomed him to a future of starring in 80’s pop music videos,
but he was also the one who sent the curse to young Corbin so he could find Sleepy Hollow’s stash of the world’s most powerful poison – now in easy to swallow spider form!
Fortunately, Ichabod is able to get a cure for Joe from a local Shaman, and, unlike his last Shaman experience, was able to avoid ending up shirtless and tied to a table.
But Katrina has clearly been infected with whatever bad mojo that spider was carrying when it crawled right into her mouth! Is that any way to treat your own mama, Henry? You are on a dark path, young man! But, armed with young Corbin’s admonition to share his feelings with his son, Crane resolves to bring Henry back into the light with the world’s most powerful weapon:
never-ending parental guilt trips love!
Overall, I like this episode. The plot is kind of treading water as far as the Apocalypse is concerned (hey man! The Apocalypse has been working pretty hard lately trying to get its shit together, so cut it some slack!). But I think the development of the verrrry complicated character relationships is going to pay off HUGE in the future!
And in closing, I would like to leave you with this hair flip:
What exactly is that poison going to do to Katrina? What ship are you shipping? Ichabbie or Ichatrina? Jennick or Jennank? Nickabbie or Nickabod? And when’s the Apocalypse going to get off its lazy ass and get back to work?
