Woohoo! The hellatus is finally over, Sleepy Heads and Craniacs. ‘Sleepy Hollow’ returns this Monday with a brand new heart-pounding episode which will introduce new players in this game of Good versus Evil.
Here is ABC’s official description of “The Sin Eater”:
HEADLESS IS BACK! ON AN ALL-NEW "SLEEPY HOLLOW" MONDAY, NOVEMBER 4, ON FOX
John Noble ("Fringe") Guest-Stars
When Ichabod Crane goes missing, his wife, Katrina, appears to Lt. Abbie Mills in a vision warning her that the Headless Horseman will return to Sleepy Hollow by nightfall. A frantic Abbie seeks help from the mysterious Henry Parrish (guest star John Noble), who holds vital clues about how Crane can vanquish his dangerous blood tie to Headless. Meanwhile, an encounter from Crane's past weighs heavily on him, and details about his first encounter with Katrina are revealed in the all-new "The Sin Eater" episode of SLEEPY HOLLOW airing Monday, Nov. 4 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (SLH-106) (TV-14 L, V)
Guest Cast: John Noble as Henry Parrish
But wait, there’s more! FOX has released some sneak peeks:
In this scene, Abbie explains her love of baseball to Crane. After which, Ichabod is motivated to join in some hilarious heckling. Oh how I’ve missed this show.
The creepy Headless Horseman is back in Sleepy Hollow and he is tracking down Ichabod in this clip. Will he succeed in finding Crane?
Our first look at John Noble’s character, Henry Parrish, reveals a man with some very special skills. Abbie and Jenny reach out Parrish, asking him to break Ichabod’s blood tie with Death. If Abbie’s bond with Ichabod is strong enough, Parrish might be able to track down her friend and help save him. Sounds like Parrish will be an extremely helpful, interesting and powerful ally to have fighting alongside Abbie and Ichabod.
In this exclusive clip from TVLine, we learn that being a sin-eater is not easy. Parrish explains his supernatural power to Abbie and Jenny. When he takes on some one else’s sins, he carries them with him forever. What will happen to Parrish if he unburdens Ichabod of his wrongdoings? Crane told Abbie that he had made some bad mistakes in the past. Will we learn what they are when the sin-eater tries to absolve Ichabod of his sins?
John Noble elaborates on his role some more in this Entertainment Weekly video. Will Henry feel like an outcast around Abbie, Jenny and Ichabod or will he feel a sense of belonging among others who have faced supernatural plight?
Lastly, you can watch the first 8 minutes of “The Sin Eater” here, before it airs on Monday night!

It looks like the sin-eater will play an important role in helping Abbie and Ichabod thwart the Apocalypse. Are you excited to see more of Noble? Are you fascinated by the sin-eaters gifts?
