After a two month hiatus, Sleepy Hollow returns this Friday and FOX has finally saw fit to give us a promo and a sneak peek at the upcoming mid-season premiere. It looks like Crane is still in his feelings about Abbie’s loss (he’d better be), and Agent Sophie is there to fill in temporarily until her return.
I’m honestly not sure what to expect from the second half of the season. While this season has been miles better than the disaster known as season two, it still feels like the magic is gone. Adding unnecessary characters into the mix like Betsy Ross and Zoe What’s-Her-Face have been a drag on the show, and from what I understand, they aren’t going anywhere. At least for the moment.
Here’s hoping they’ll at least be utilized better in the upcoming episodes. Here’s also hoping the writers stop wasting the chemistry between Abbie and Ichabod to prop up his other relationships. It’s hurting the show, and if the complaints by critics and fans aren’t enough to convince those in charge, the dismal ratings should.
