"Sleepy Hollow": More About the Season Finale (and the Ichabbie Hug)

A lot has happened since the first synopsis of the Sleepy Hollow season 2 finale was released. A lot of it consisted of a small uproar among some of the #Sleepyheads. I’ve already given my reasons why I’m not outraged, which you can read here, but if you were outraged, then guess what? You can calm down now. There’s new information from Kurtzman/Orci’s Aaron Baiers, who, as this Twitter user stated:

So what has Baiers tweeted to calm folks down? A heck of a lot, actually. Here are his tweets:

(“Len” meaning Len Wiseman, producer and the director of the pilot.)

First of all, as I wrote on Twitter:

Baiers has gone above and beyond the call of duty to sate angry fans all season, so I think the fandom should send him e-cards or something. He doesn’t have to talk to the fans and be as transparent as he has been, but he does.

Second, we’re getting Ichabbie, which is great for the fandom. Some are saying that The Powers That Be are acting like promoting Ichabbie is making it seem like it’s a bandage on a problem. Well, in my opinion, they’re promoting it like that because that’s what people want to see. In a sense, yes, it’s a bandage, but they’re also promoting it because they want to keep the viewers they have and win back the viewers they lost. So is the big Ichabbie push a bad thing? I don’t think so, which leads me to wonder why some Ichabbie fans who wanted a push towards this pairing are now worried about how it’s being handled. Give the team a chance to do something right.

Third, as I’ve written many times before, everyone’s just going to have to wait until the third season comes back. According to the Cancellation Bear, it’s more than likely to be renewed, so over the summer, the team will doing a mix of hiring, firing, reorganizing, restructuring, etc., along with doing a big think tank as to how to push the story forward in a way that keeps the two main characters at the center of the story.

If I have one pet peeve about how fandom works, it’s that there’s an expectation of immediate gratification once a complaint has been made. These shows take months to write, shoot, produce and edit. The Sleepy Hollow team has already bent over backwards to address the situation at hand the best they can with the remainder of the season left to them. The real change will be made behind closed doors this summer, so you’ll have to be patient.

Fourth, just how much Ichabbie shipperiness are we getting in this hug? I’m genuinely curious about that. This hug sounds like an epic hug. It also sounds like some serious talking is going to be made before, during, and/or after this hug. I’m very interested to see what’s going to happen during the season finale. One thing seems for certain; whether or not Ichabod gets closer to professing his love to Abbie, this hug definitely seems to put the nail in the coffin on Ichatrina. Sorry, Ichatrina fans (and that’s without sarcasm).
