Show/Episode: Sleepy Hollow Season 2, Episode 9, “Mama”
Ships: Ichabod/Abbie (Ichabbie), Crane/Katrina/Abraham, Katrina/Abraham (Katless), Hawley/Abbie/Jenny
**Reader Beware: This post contains spoilers of all aired episodes of Sleepy Hollow, including last night's, “Mama.”**
I never miss Sleepy Hollow. Tom Mison manages to pull off sexy with cranky (Ichabod Crane is older than a roomful of grandpas), and Nicole Beharie as his Co-Witness to Save the World is smart, vulnerable, and has the good humor to teach Ichabod how to live in the 21st century. In a perfect world, Crane and Abbie would take their partnership to the next level, but for now he’s relatively happy with Katrina while Abbie and Hawley take two steps forward for every one painful step back. Only time will tell if Katrina is honest and true, or if she should be knocking boots with Abraham, with or without heads.
Sorry, Ichabbie shippers:
Those who shipped “Ichabbie” during season one were doused with cold water after Katrina left Purgatory. Ever since, she’s repeatedly escaped Abraham, the now headful (headified? re-headed?) Headless Horseman, AKA the Horseman of Death. Which means she and Crane are like other married couples who bicker over The Bachelor. Although she might stay with her husband, Katrina determines to return to Abraham’s home to spy on her former fiancé and Henry, her son with Crane—who is AKA The Horseman of War—and to discover what plans exist for bringing Moloch into the corporeal world. While Crane says he’s over his suspicion over her secrets motives, which cropped up more than once this season, who knows what other secrets she’s keeping, let alone how far she’ll believe a mother’s love knows no bounds. All of which sets up a potential triangle between Crane, Katrina, and Abraham, who looks better shirtless than he ever did headless. It also leaves room for the eventual return of Ichabbie.
