T: Right. Sulky Ichabod, studly Abraham. Got it. Inferiority complex because Ichy’s hair will NEVER do Abraham’s sausage curls.
M: Back to the book, this whole inception is the result of – and here, I quote: “Birthing seed of eastern origin” derived, of course, from that poison stuff from last episode. (This being the only connection to that episode.)
T: “Birthing *seed*” What is it, tanis root? Is it going to be a mummy baby? It would be SO much better if it was a magicked apple pip because that’s got American tie-ins all over it. Next up: Johnny Appleseed was planting demon trees all over America for Moloch.
M: There’s a retcon for you. Katrina notes that the jenka or whatever has been used for *centuries* to… wait for it… create demons.
T: …in HER
So – spider demon?
M: And with that revelation the door hex goes aflame and the trio scramble for the tunnels.
T: Or is the spider form no longer relevant?
M: Did you see Cabin in the Woods?
M: You should, it’s pretty good. But now I’m thinking Spiderbat. Anyway, tunnel escape that leads them to the church where Henry was left/chose his new name. Which – was that actually connected to the tunnels in any way? I thought it was waaaay outside of town.
T: …I have no idea. I think all of Sleepy Hollow has tunnel connections.
M: It’s true – there was a huge one underneath our 1950s split level ranch.
M: No. Next we get some debate about the danger of staying put and this leads to a long (felt that way at least) argument about whether Henry can be saved/is worth fighting for/etc.
T: Oh dear. Mommy guilt and anxiety. THIS IS THE MOTHER SEASON I swear.
M: It’s the parents’ episode for sure.
T: The mother of all episodes?
T: Ignore and carry on.
M: I always do. Ichabod points out that the chances of Henry helping out are very small – but the timeline is so short they have to try. Thus Abbie is outvoted regarding this stupid plan.
T: Um ok.
M: Hmmm… what to discuss of these interminable scenes… Okay, start with this – Abbie keeps researching and makes a startling discovery: the particular demon inside Katrina is … Our Horrored King. Or maybe Our Horned King. It’s really unclear because no one on this show speaks with good diction anymore.
T: Moloch? Inside our wheezy dragon princess?
T: So it’s definitely not Abraham’s spawn – whew Ichabod!
M: At the same time, Ichabod’s learning this same info from Henry, while also trying to talk him into not killing his mother.
T: Awwww, how familial!
M: Also, Katrina took off her corset, presumably because it was feeling tight, at which point her belly expands to full on pregnancy.
T: That was fast GOOD LORD SHE”S PREGNANT WITH EDWARD CULLENS BABY
T: Fast pregnancy?
M: I will stop watching and being your friend if that occurs
T: Killing her from the inside?
T: HEHEH snort. I’m just saying: symptoms are, sparkly witch baby.
