'Sleepy Hollow' recap: Episode 2, 'Blood Moon'
Week 2 is another strong showing for "Sleepy Hollow." It's good to know this new supernatural series isn't just a one-trick, er, headless pony.
Lt. Abbie Mills and Ichabod Crane are now the defenders of Sleepy Hollow — which is great because this town is about to get slammed with a new baddie every week. In the opening dream sequence, Katrina (Crane’s witch wife) reminds us that Abbie and Crane gotta catch and defeat ‘em all in order to prevent the four horsemen of the apocalypse starting their evil ride. So when the demon who killed Deputy Andy Brooks resurrects him and instructs his freshly dead minion to summon the high priestess Serilda of Abaddon to do battle in Sleepy Hollow, the game is afoot.
A few important items in this week's episode:
Crane: Mmm, these are good.
Back to the episode, Serilda gets about halfway completed with her own self-resurrection spell when she’s foiled by Crane and Abbie and burnt to a crisp (again, and for good).
Brooks is still lurking about, presumably to bring in the monster for next week, and Abbie and Crane have a new secret lair in the old American Revolutionary armory where, lo and behold, all the secrets and police files of the last 250 years are stored!
Oh and by the way, Crane has a photographic memory. So we really have a crack team here.
Overall, I give this week's episode above-average marks for campy witchcraft fun.
