People have been worried about if Sleepy Hollow is coming back. Even I’ve been a little affected despite my belief that the show has a good chance at coming back. The new Fox pilot Frankenstein was making me a little concerned, since there are elements to the story that’s very similar to Sleepy Hollow‘s crazy sci-fi nonsense.
But there was one thing I saw yesterday that made me completely secure in Sleepy Hollow‘s future once again. That thing was seeing the official Fox Sleepy Hollow page invite people to make fun of Katrina and Henry’s deaths.

Grace Dixon, in her infinite wisdom, said, “Sometimes, all it takes is to put pen to paper to make a difference.” I feel like whoever wrote this line wrote it with their tongue in their cheek.
There have been all sorts of things happening this season of Sleepy Hollow because someone put their pen to paper, but while there have been a lot of good, there’s been a heck of a lot of bad, chief among them Katrina and Henry weighing down Ichabod’s storyline. But while “Kali Yuga” got rid of Hawley and “Awakening” saw the death of Henry, “Tempus Fugit” rights the last wrong left standing—Katrina. This difference is one that can be felt like a wave throughout the Sleepy Hollow fandom. I’m still in shock that the writing staff actually did it.

I’ve been following Sleepy Hollow since the beginning (from my first website, Moniqueblog.net), so I’ve followed the fans ups and downs, whether it came to the first Ichabbie hug or when Katrina finally got out of Purgatory. I’ve loved seeing what meta critiques the fans have, and, to be fair, I’ve tried to do my part to stop needless worry about upcoming storylines, whether I helped or not. To say the least, my relationship with the fandom has become as layered as a relationship with fandom can become. Today, I’m writing this piece to give the Sleepy Hollow fandom the props they deserve.

WHAT AN EPISODE. Also, it’s a strange (and, in many ways, fitting) to go into this episode, “Awakening,” with an already heated mindset from watching The Book of Negroes, since Abbie gets sent back to that time period. At the very least, we can hang our hats on the fact that Sleepy Hollow is on standard television and also is not a faithful rendering of the horrors of the 18th century, so we won’t see Abbie beaten or worse. But Abbie just being back in the 18th century is trying enough on the nerves, not to mention the worry of how she’ll convince 18th century Ichabod that she’s trustworthy.

After reading the spoilers for the first part of the season finale, “Awakening,” I already know I’m going to be on the edge of my seat. You can read the full spoilers at Spoiler TV and ScreenSpy, but the condensed version of what you need to know are this:

I’ve read the season finale of Sleepy Hollow, “Tempus Fugit.” I already have seen several fans on Tumblr go off about the finale description, but take a look at the description for yourself and then read what I have to say about it.

Last night’s Sleepy Hollow, “Spellcaster,” is possibly the first episode in a long time that has left me pondering about theories and stuff. That’s great—in that respect, it feels more like the show I originally loved.
Also great is that the Cancellation Bear has Sleepy Hollow at “likely to be renewed” by May, the deadline for networks to renew shows. So since this is the case, there are some things I’ve been thinking about now that we’re past “Spellcaster.”

I’ve long supported my theory that Katrina is evil. Well, not just evil, but a more complicated version of evil. I wrote this long theory a while ago when I still had my old website, Moniqueblog.net. I’d reposted it on my new Tumblr page, but after the ending of “Heartless,” it would appear my theory is turning out to be truer and truer by the episode. That theory is that Katrina falls somewhere in between the characterizations of Ishtar, the Whore of Babylon, and the Woman of the Apocalypse.
Here’s what I originally wrote:
