Show/Episode: Sleepy Hollow Season 3, Episode 2, “Whispers in the Dark”
Ship(s): Ichabod/Abbie (Ichabbie), Joe/Jenny
Ichabbie returned in last week’s season premiere sporting dazzling new hairstyles and having put their pasts behind. With one tribulation down, the countdown toward seven began anew when Pandora, who looks to be this season’s baddie, captured Death by putting Headless in her box. Wow … that sounds strange, and in so many ways.
By the end of last week’s episode, Abbie agreed that evil had returned to Sleepy Hollow. An even bigger deal: The ancient tablet Crane discovered back in England depicts a duo that looks like Ichabbie, so now they know their job as witnesses is literally written in stone.
Their tasks this week … First, how about thrilling shippers? Take the opening scene, for instance, which begins with Crane tidying up Abbie’s home to thank her for taking him in as a roomie, and continues with his being flummoxed when confronted by one of her unmentionables as he sets about doing laundry. And when his specially prepared meal is left too long in the oven, they order take-out and talk about Abbie’s “good fences make good neighbors” policy for being good roommates. Crane is utterly delicious here, but the takeaway is that Ichabbie is back. And they’re sweeter than ever.
