Welcome back, Sleepy Heads! After 8 months of doing this:
we finally have a reason to get up in the morning! Sleepy Hollow is finally back with season 2! And it looks like it is going to be a doozy!
Sleepy Hollow Season 2 premiered with “Hellfire” – and the story was all about illusions, baby!
As the episode begins, we find Crane, escaped from his coffin, and Abbie, freed from purgatory, a year after the events of the season finale, and, apparently, after the deaths of Katrina and Jenny. They are on the trail of a key – as a matter of fact, the very key Ben Franklin tied to his famous kite! The key is purported to open purgatory and allow one soul’s freedom without exchanging for another. They are desperate to get their hands on it before Jeremy Crane (aka Ichabod’s son)(aka “the Horseman known as War”) can use it to free Moloch and his demon army. But all is not what it seems because illusions!
Now, we could go “UCLA film school” on the episode and discuss all the illusions that were peppered throughout. Like, perhaps, the illusion Jeremy Crane used to trick Ichabbie into telling him the key’s location. Or the illusion that Ben Franklin was trawling for electricity with his kite, when he was actually trying to destroy the key and prevent its use.
I could also point out that the Horseman used an illusion that allowed Katrina to see him as a person, complete with head – and as the man who used to be her fiance. Or maybe the illusion that Abbie chopped off Ichabod’s head in a show of serious badassery.
So many illusions to talk about, but, honestly I think we all just want to talk about this:
Abbie finds a way to communicate with Crane from purgatory, and suddenly Ichabod is there! (at least in their minds, because it is an illusion!) Then epic.flipping.huggage.happens. And the Ichabbie shippers of the world go crazzy!
Look at the emotion!
and the hair petting!
Gahhhhhh! Tell me that “ship” is not set to sail! I dare you!
I will admit here and now that prior to this show, I was 100% against shipping actors who star together. Generally, it totally grosses me out.
But I basically want Nicole and Tom to fall in love and make the world’s most beautiful babies, then I want to marry both of them, and adopt their babies as my own at which point we will all live together as some sort of mutant Brady Bunch forever.
That is my dream for the world.
Shut it, eyebrow!
And in the unlikely event that doesn’t happen, at least MISON GIFS ARE BACK!!!!! Woohoo!
I have cleared my computer of all useful programs, academic research and family photos to make room for a whole new season of this:
So BRING IT ON Sleepy Hollow Season 2!!!!!
So what did you think? Did the episode answer your burning questions? How did you cleanse your brain of the naked Ben Franklin image? Is it happening?
