Show/Episode: Sleepy Hollow Season 2, Episode 11, “The Akeda”
Ships: Crane/Katrina and Katrina/Abraham (Katless)
**Reader Beware: This post contains spoilers of all aired episodes of Sleepy Hollow, including last night's 2x11, “The Akeda.”**
At a critical juncture during “The Akeda,” Crane and Katrina agree to set their relationship aside for the duration of the battle against Moloch and act as soldiers in a war rather than as husband and wife. It is Katrina who quietly suggests this after Ichabod questions her loyalty, and it was then that I realized she really isn’t playing some bizarre game of slap and tickle with Abraham. Because this is the moment in romance novels when the heroine shows herself a woman of quiet strength, grace, and dignity. In so doing she proves to the reader that her husband is nothing but an asshole for accusing her of taking up with a) his brother, b) his best friend, or c) a Horseman of the Apocalypse.
I think Ichabod came to the same realization himself, but before I get ahead of myself, let’s start at the beginning. Surprisingly, even the apocalypse can’t stop Ichabod and Abbie from bickering about the weather.
