You may have noticed a dearth of Sleepy Hollow posts recently. That’s because this show is so whack-a-doodle crazy, it became difficult (for me) to rationally discuss. (Besides, I’m hoping Suzanne will cover it at Damsel Undistressed. *hint*) So, what would you expect for a season ending to such a crazy-assed show? More crazy-assedness, yeah? Well, you would be right.
Three words sum it all up.

Prior to the two-episode airing last night, the Sleepy Hollow forum at Television Without Pity had been rife with speculation, and some of it came surprisingly close. I’m sure the finale will inspire more speculation, especially since we have two-thirds of a year to wait.
Every single character was left in jeopardy, as well as the future of Sleepy Hollow and the world itself. How will we come back from all these disasters? Any thoughts?
- Ichabod Crane finally got some new duds, which look exactly like the old duds. He wound up entombed in not just any grave, but that of his son Jeremy, who’d been buried alive by his mother Katrina’s old coven. (I’ve got that right, don’t I?)
- My speculations: Jeremy’s blood kept him alive while buried for 200 years, Ichabod’s blood could do the same. Or perhaps he’ll dig his way out the grave, ala Dean Winchester in Supernatural. I’m not sure he can rely on anyone else saive him, since everyone is busy with their own fate.
- Abby Mills ended up in her childhood doll house with her younger self and young Jenny. Oh, and the doll house is in purgatory.
- Speculation? I got nothin’. My guess is Ichabod will rescue her from purgatory after he’s rescued himself.
- Capt Frank Irving confessed to the murders his possessed daughter committed last week. (For the record, I knew the priest was doomed the minute he made his first appearance.) Of all the perils, Frank’s could be the easiest to resolve.
- Last we saw Abbie’s ex, Luke Morales, he was lying on the floor of the safe house. He was mentioned a couple times in the finale, which makes me think he’s still alive. Perhaps he’ll take the fall.
- As a side note, Natalie’s speculation that Detective Jones was on the side of evil proved wrong. Welcome to the Wrong Club, Natalie. 😉
- Katrina Crane was rendered unconscious and delivered to the Headless Horseman Abraham (whom we’d seen very little of recently).
- I was hoping she’d been killed because, man, she really sucks the life out of this show.
- Jenny discovered The Truth about Henry Parrish, thanks to Sheriff Corbin’s tapes, but was left for dead in an auto accident—caused by Headless, no less.
- I really hope she’s not dead. She’s added a lot to the show, and brings more depth to Abbie’s character.
- And Henry Parrish played them all. I began to suspect Henry was War, but the Jeremy Crane twist was a complete surprise. Well done, writers.
Does this mean season 2 will end with the coming of Pestilence (or Conquest, as Sleepy Hollow has referred to this Horseman), and the following season with Famine rising? Or vice versa?
