Sleepy Hollow – “And the Abyss Gazes Back” Review

Sleepy Hollow - "And the Abyss Gazes Back"Seeing Abbie and Crane bond is always great. In this case, Crane needed to majorly unwind while dealing with the lies that Katrina had been keeping from him. While yoga didn’t work, a drink at the pub did. The dynamic between Abbie and Crane never seems to fail s their moments deliver a fair about of humor. Whether it is Crane trying to make commentary with superhero references or proclaiming that he won after taking a breathalyzer test.

The creature we fast this week looked like the damn jersey devil alive. it attacked and murdered. It even went after Joe Corbin, Officer Corbin’s son. Sure, he wasn’t too pleased with Abbie, blaming her for his father’s death. Abbie used to babysit him. Abbie cares about him, but he’s resentful because of the time his father spent with Abbie.

Despite all that angst and ill will toward Abbie, she is still someone who is caring and wants to help. She wasn’t going to just kill Joe when he transformed into his Wendigo form. Clearly, it’s something that’s been eating at Joe knowing what he is. Blood triggers his curse, transforming him into that monster that can’t change until he eats a heart. But Joe wasn’t always a wendigo, Henry made him one with the bone from two episodes ago. (Yet again proving that Sleepy Hollow is excellent at tying things together.) It wasn’t until Joe slowed down to let Abbie talk that he started to see that she cared too.

Sleepy Hollow - "And the Abyss Gazes Back"Henry is planting seeds in Irving’s head. His soul may be Henry’s, but there is a loop hole. Should Irving kill someone, he can trade a soul for a soul. Irving isn’t that dark, but when Henry mentions that it needs not be an innocent. That Irving could potentially kill the man who drunkenly paralyzed his daughter for his life you could see the darkness in his eyes. Hell, Henry planted that seed so well that Irving was barely able to stop himself from killing the man.

There is a coming explosion between characters, particularly Abbie and Jenny. Yes, their relationship seems peachy keen. We haven’t seen so many of the special bond between them that we saw last season. We have seen Jenny be cast to the side and take the fall though. Hawley seems to be a point of contention between the two. Rather than cutting and running, Hawley has been sticking around. More importantly there’s a look in his eyes when he looks at Abbie. I don’t know that he truly like her, but he certainly is compelled by her and wants to be by his side.
