Last week’s Ichabod-centric episode revealed that Ichabod and Katrina had a son, so this week’s episode looked to be all about Ichabod. In that aspect, at least, it did not disappoint. In others, well.
Sleepy Hollow’s last episode ended with Abbie, Ichabod, and Irving taking the Horseman into custody in a secret underground cell. I was not expecting that, since the Horseman is supposedly one of the big bads of the series. So I was really looking forward to this episode.
Thus far, Sleepy Hollow has been both a disappointment and a joy. I’m in love with the show, but half the time, I’m either unsure about what’s going on because the episode in question is more chaotic than ordered, as it were. Or I think the episode is complete filler and has nothing to do with the greater narrative. Thankfully, “The Midnight Ride” falls into the former category—it’s not filler, but it’s still really confusing. And hey, I might be a little unsure about what’s happening, but at least I can sit back and enjoy watching Ichabod attempt to use the internet for the first time.
Do you know, Sleepy Hollow has actually made me look forward to Mondays.
This episode opens with a little girl running through the forest, and daring a little boy in colonial clothing to follow after. The boy is found, disoriented and confused, in Sleepy Hollow. Abbie and Ichabod, who are in Corbin’s cabin, are conveniently close to where the boy was found, so they go and investigate. Spoilers after the jump!
Hi, all! It’s my first time doing a Sleepy Hollow review, and it feels good.
This episode promised to feature Abbie’s awesome sister Jenny more prominently, and to delve into the reasons for their estrangement, along with a healthy serving of more creepy demon shit. Needless to say, it did not disappoint. I just wish that it had come with a few trigger warnings and a little more research. Beware spoilers ahead.
