17 Things To Remember For The "Sleepy Hollow" Season Premiere

"Everyone Is Related And Also Possibly Dead: The TV Show"

Posted on

1. Recall that the Headless Horseman is only one-fourth of the problem in this incarnation of the Sleepy Hollow legend.

Headless is not only the horseman from Washington Irving's classic story, he's also one of the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse from Biblical lore. Headless is the Horseman of Death.

2. Headless is also the reanimated body of Abraham, Ichabod's ex best friend and former suitor of Katrina, Ichabod's wife.

Yep, that's the same dude. Figures that Ichabod personally knows Headless. He apparently knows everybody from his time period.

3. Case and point: Ichabod offhandedly mentioned that he used to date Betsy Ross.

Bonus points if we see her in a flashback.

4. And Ichabod used his personal knowledge of George Washington's habits to help Abbie find a map to purgatory.

Oh and George Washington was a zombie. Moving on.

5. Katrina was finally rescued and brought into the present time period!

Ichabbie shippers were not deterred in the least.

6. But Abbie had to stay behind in purgatory to take Katrina's place.

"Still not bothered" — the shippers

7. In a HUGE plot twist, Henry the sin eater turned out to be Jeremy, Ichabod and Katrina's long-lost son!

What? Are you sure? He doesn't look anything like his parents!

8. Henry/Jeremy was mad about being abandoned and half-killed by Katrina's coven.

Witches be trippin'

9. Like, really mad.

Like, "trap your dad in a coffin and bury him alive" mad.

10. Henry/Jeremy then traded his mother to the Headless Horseman (see how that love triangle came full circle?) in exchange for a seal of the apocalypse.

Not that kind of seal.

Not that kind of seal.

11. Because Henry/Jeremy also happens to be the Horseman of War.

The demon Moloch raised him from the grave to be one of his four minions. No word on who the horsemen of Famine and Pestilence are IRL, but I'd put my money on Ichabod's gardener and his cat, respectively.

12. In fact, it was Henry's rebirth as the War Horseman that Abbie and Jenny saw in the woods so many years ago.

Wow, somebody should go tell Jenny!

13. Actually, Jenny discovered The Plot Twist before everyone else, and was (maybe) taken out by the Headless Horseman before she could tell anybody.

FOX / Via hulu.com

The horseman had a big-ass gun. Who gave this guy a gun? Somebody call Irving!

14. Shit, Captain Irving confessed to double homicide and is in custody.

FOX / Via hulu.com

He's taking the fall for his daughter, who was possessed by a demon and killed two people.

What about Andy? He's occasionally helpful...

15. Andy Brooks was transformed into an alien-eyed monster and buried alive in George Washington's Masonic tomb.

Well, there goes that plan.

Well, there goes that plan.

16. Now that Henry broke the second Seal of the Apocalypse, he has the power to call his Horseman bros together and bring about a demonic war that will end the world as we know it.

"Hail Moloch" — all of us, if something doesn't happen soon.

17. And all of our heroes are either incapacitated, incarcerated, or dead.

OR ARE THEY????
