Sleepy Hollow Season 2, Episode 7: The one with the Abdominal Issues

This episode opens with a glorious post-coital flashback scene between Katrina and Ichabod. Given the fact that it seems to be taking place between extended periods of them not seeing each other, as well as the theme of the entire episode, I’m guessing this is the night cute baby Jeremy was conceived. Awwww!

I was very happy to see an absence of the dreaded L-shaped cover but even happier to find out through Katrina’s complaints that General Washington was coming between the couple. I hope she shares this with Abbie so that they can make fun of Ichabod as a team.

Sleepy Hollow Season 2, Episode 6: The one with yet another Disappointed Son

We open with a distressed and disheveled Ichabod and since I’m a very classy broad my first observation was that it looked like something that rhymes with chasm denial. It’s actually yoga, because apparently that’s how young kids these days train for the apocalypse, a far cry from alcohol and demon blood dependency, which was the Winchesters’ approach in days of yore.

Sleepy Hollow Season 2, Episode 5: The one with Moaning Myrtle and the Case of Crane on the Brain

First victim to this awful malady is apparently sweet Caroline. The opening scene was especially amusing to me, since the two actors have played Mr. Bingley and Jane Bennet respectively in different adaptations of Pride and Prejudice. Even her name made me think of P&P (which was name-dropped last episode by Nick).

Now, Ichabod’s refusal to let go of his past, at least as far as menswear is concerned, probably led to quite a number of encounters with this young woman, who utterly enamored, not only made him clothes, but also churned butter for him –not a colonial euphemism.  Ichabod was completely oblivious up to the moment when she decided to go in for a kiss.
