Sleepy Hollow came back for another episode last night, and after three episodes in a row that I utterly detested, I found myself enjoying “Magnum Opus” a great deal. This time around, Moloch is still rising to power, Katrina remains the worst spy in existence, Hawley’s for once nowhere to be seen, and both Ichabod and the Headless Horseman work out their identity issues. Hit the jump to find out my thoughts.
This week on Sleepy Hollow, there’s a new police Sheriff, Jenny is back in jail, Irving’s in jail, Ichabod doesn’t understand why banks chain their pens to desks, the Headless Horseman fights Frankenstein’s Benjamin Franklin’s Monster, and Katrina is still a damsel-in-distress. Hit the jump to find out my thoughts and spoilers ahead.
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.
