Get ready to lose your heads…again. After much anticipation, we finally get a couple of sneak peeks from ‘Sleepy Hollow’s’ sophomore season and they certainly meet (maybe even exceed) our expectations. The following scenes premiered at Comic-Con on Friday evening and quickly debuted online, so absentee Sleepy Heads still get to join in on all the fun.
It is so enthralling to see Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) and Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie) back in action. Watching these clips will make you realize just how much this show has been dearly missed. Get ready to squeal, giggle, sigh, and gasp.
Ichabod Crane walks into a bank and eloquently articulates all of the grievances we have, but we don’t dare to acknowledge aloud. The Hollywood Reporter exclusively debuted the first hilarious scene which features another one of Crane’s classic rants on the immensely flawed nature of America’s debt riddled economy. As always, the loaded expression on Tom Mison’s face is priceless. Enjoy the scene HERE.
Has anyone created a GIF of Ichabod tugging on the chained pen with agitation and bewilderment? If so, please post a link to it in the comments below because that moment will be added to Mison's growing list of GIF-able gestures. Moving on, once all the fun quipping is done, we discover the true purpose of their visit.
Abbie has stashed Death/Abraham’s skull in a safety deposit box. Well that is an interesting, unexpected and somewhat risky hiding place. Once Ichabod and Abbie retrieve the skull, they commence forth with their plan to conjure up a creature that can take on the Headless Horseman. Luckily, we’ve got a sneak peek at that too!
As we’ve already discussed, the Kindred will play an important part in this season’s mythology because it may be the key to freeing Katrina from Death/the Headless Horseman/Abraham’s evil embrace. In Entertainment Weekly’s exclusive sneak peek, we see Crane work some magic as he and Abbie reanimate Abraham’s corpse and reattach his skull in order to create the Kindred. We also get our first glimpse of Katrina as she tries to stop Abraham from killing her beloved Ichabod. Brace yourselves and take a look at the embedded video.
Once again, kudos to ‘Sleepy Hollow’s’ special effects team because the Kindred’s graphics are stunning. We will probably learn a lot more about this skeletal assassin in episode 2, since it is titled, “The Kindred.” Let’s just hope this creepy creature succeeds in defeating his doppelgänger. We know it won’t happen anytime soon since Neil Jackson will recur as Abraham, but let's keep our fingers crossed for the Kindred to help Ichabod rescue Katrina at the very least.
Do you think the Kindred can be trusted? Who knows? Maybe the Kindred gets out of hand and Abbie needs to call upon Nick Hawley (Matt Barr) for some back-up.
What do you think about our first real look at Season 2 of ‘Sleepy Hollow’? Did the videos get you even more excited for the premiere? Are they everything you were hoping for?
Seriously, September 22 cannot get here fast enough.
