Dear Sleepy Hollow, How are You?
Dear Sleepy Hollow,
The Sleepyheads miss you. We may or may not rewatch the pilot and “Tempus Fugit,” just to savor the parallels. We may or may not hit pause to look at the photos on Abbie’s cellphone. It doesn’t even matter that we know nobody was around to take those pictures or that we’re not sure if 18th-century Ichabod would use the Little-endian (day, month, year) format or Middle-endian (month, day, year) format to enter his birthday as the password.
Did you know that Lieutenant Abbie Mills is homeless? She used to have an apartment, but now she may be living out of her car. Ichabod has been squatting at a cabin up by Trout Lake, but if Joe Corbin finds out he’ll likely face eviction. Crane fancies a “three bedroom, two bath Craftsman
because he wants a roomy love nest to share with his Leftenant, but he was gobsmacked by how much it costs to buy a home these days. Oh, well, maybe the police department will start paying him. There is one spacious piece of property to accommodate everyone, Frederick’s Manor; it is a fixer-upper, but it would give the Witnesses and their allies a place to stay. That sort of arrangement has worked before, Angel and his fellow champions lived together at the Hyperion Hotel in Los Angeles, it made for an easy commute.
Is Abbie seeing anyone these days? Just about every man who crosses Abbie’s path falls for her. Her boyfriend Luke Morales didn’t want to let things go — except for his storyline because he pulled a Bobby Martin; check the attic at Tarrytown Psychiatric! Orion the dark angel gave her a magic burner phone so she could keep in touch, and investigative reporter Calvin Riggs was surreptitiously taking photos of and texting Abbie within hours of meeting her. Benjamin Franklin was a little flirty, too. She’s got so many interests, she’s bound to meet someone in yoga class, at a Mets game or karaoke night. She might even hit up the Jane Austen book club. (Remember how she and Hawley discussed their shared appreciation for Austen?)
Will the witnesses be traveling during their summer vacation? Sheriff Corbin said there are covens all over the East Coast and the cases track through Boston, DC, and Manhattan. Sheriff Corbin had such a mesmerizing voice, are there any more audio recordings in the archive?
Do the Witnesses keep in touch with the Horseman? Not the scrawny one with the head, the hulking one who used to strut about town like a BAMF? It’d be kind of fun to get a reunion with some of the other Horsemen. It would be like that time we got to see Destiny’s Child at the Superbowl!
Abbie and Ichabod always unresolved sexual tension all over the place. There seems to be a lot of lingering glances and touching. Do you think they ever dream about each other? I bet they dream about kissing. Can you imagine if they kissed — in a dream, not in real life, of course because they’re “just friends.”
Say hi to everyone for us. Tell Grace Dixon we hope she comes back real soon. Holler at Cynthia and Macey Irving and the Kindred and Sheriff Reyes and Seamus Deacon of Geronimotors, and Big Ash. We probably forgot someone, but send our regards anyway!
Did we leave anything out? Please leave a comment. (They don’t appear immediately, but we’ll get to them.)
