Oh, the holidays. Some love it, while others loathe it with the strength of a thousand suns, like poor Ichy. Ichabod is hacking away at firewood when Abbie appears. She senses his dismay about finding out he had a child, something Katrina had kept from him. When Abbie calls him a Scrooge he goes into one of his 'I have no idea what gibberish you are speaking of' adorable rants. This week’s revolutionary history lesson? The origins of eggnog. Love when Ichy gets all Mr. Smarty Pants. While yielding an ax, even better. Ha cha cha!
Abbie calms Ichabod like only she can, with empathy and sincerity. She couldn’t imagine, can’t imagine, all Ichabod must be feeling. He awoke and in an instant, all he knew was gone. All those he loved. Now, add to that, a child he never got to know because he never knew he existed. Because she cares so much and understands the loneliness Ichabod feels, she agrees to help him find Katrina in purgatory to found out what happened to his child.
