Joe and Jenny kickbox. Zach Appelman’s muscles should demand an on-set trailer. Lyndie Greenwood’s midriff hurts my feelings. Kickboxing is the new foreplay, apparently. Jenny goes into Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots mode, glows red, and her eyes glaze white. Uh-oh!
Normally, I’d be swooning at the Ichabod closeup and the eyebrow porn, butI don’t want to love him right now because the camera will pull back and he’ll be with that weirdo extra who keeps trying to ship herself with him. Last week, we opened with a closeup, but it was marred by Crextra’s presence. Wait, that damn, sexy hobo is playing chess with Abbie. It’s safe to rewind.
We here at TVRD love watching Sleepy Hollow, writing about Sleepy Hollow, Tweeting about Sleepy Hollow and hearing what our fellow Sleepyheads have to say. This time around, Barbara Ruffin is weighing in on “This Red Lady from Caribee.” She has a couple of conspiracy theories that I hadn’t even considered because I was too busy focusing on Abbie’s hair and that date Crane went on with the extra.
This was a solid episode as long as you dismiss a few minutes involving an extra, who is shipping herself with Crane. We got a brief glimpse at Abbie and Daniel’s past relationship, there are huge developments on the Jenny & Joe Show and Pandora is just warming up.
Soooooo, Ichabod goes on a date with Crextra. In the last episode, he offered to escort her to dinner. “Escort” better not mean “treat.” If Ichabod reaches into his pocket, I will reach through the screen, grab that hibachi knife and shiv him myself.
Back to the Witness mission, Crane feels guilty; Washington sent him to kill Howe, and he failed. Had Crane succeeded, the war may have ended more quickly. Crane has a lot of guilt issues. What he should feel bad about is Joe Corbin, who arrives at Jenny’s trailer with two bags of groceries. That’s what happens when you are gainfully employed, Crane.
Bones is shipping the hell out of Ichabbie. The Sleepy Hollow writers are begging us not to lose our shit over the Crextra foolishness. Don’t worry, Sleepyheads, she is just a plot device who will be shivved in the season finale.
Jessica Camacho, who appeared in the “Blood and Fear” episode, has landed a spot as a series regular. You’ll remember that Sophie stole the Shard of Anubis from Randall Martin and left him cuffed to a shower railing. Jenny’s increased visibility, in what I like to think of as an in-show spinoff, The Jenny & Joe Show, requires additional characters so that we can see Jenny in the artifact-hunting mode we’d only heard about.
