Every day, it seems like there’s more and more Sleepy Hollow news. The closer we get to that post-season, the more people will be giving their two cents on the possibility of a third season and just who is going to be dying in the finale. If I’m being honest, it seems like that death is being foisted on us pretty hard. Kinda makes you wonder if a certain witch is going to die, doesn’t it? I make no promises and neither do they, but the idea of a death coming is being teased with a wink and a nudge, it seems. Weird.
Since the TCA comments came out, people have either been freaking out, maintaining hope for a third season, or silently hoping for Sleepy Hollow to get its death throes on.
I think that even though the Cancellation Bear is right in saying that S3 isn’t a definite lock, I won’t say that the show is going to pull a complete Marie Antoinette (or Headless Horseman) and get its head chopped off. But, I will say that, like Marie Antoinette, the show pushed the buttons of its subjects one time too many, and the people are ready to storm Versailles and rob the show of its vestments.
With that said, here’s a rundown on all the theories and rumors I’ve come across.
During the East Coast viewing of Sleepy Hollow, fans were getting angrier and angrier when it became apparent that Katrina, not Abbie, was going to be accompanying Ichabod on his case. WHUT? You can read what I thought about it here, but just to sum it up; I wasn’t kind about it. Neither were other fans, who expressed their ire in the hashtag #WitchesBetterThanKatrina. Here are some of the best tweets.
When I started today’s Sleepy Hollow tweet, I wrote:
#SleepyHollow is on! Let’s get Jesus on the mainline to help us through!

I wrote it partly in jest, but little did I know that I’d actually feel like I needed a mainline to Jesus during the episode. If I’m being honest, “Pittura Infamante” was a passable episode. Some would even say it was a good one. But I’d only be able to say it was a good one if this was a show that was always about Ichabod and Katrina. This is a show that’s supposed to be about Ichabod and Abbie.
Getting on Twitter leads to me learning a lot about the world in entertainment (as well as real life, because goodness knows Twitter is much quicker than the news stations nowadays). So imagine my surprise when I found out that Sleepy Hollow, a show I’d been worried about for a while now, is really having the renewal trouble I feared.
Welcome back to the wild and zany world of Sleepy Hollow! I think the reviews on this particular episode, “Paradise Lost,” will be mixed, since on the one hand, we got a cool, no-nonsense angel character (who also wants to kill the entire world) and on the other hand, we got a lot of nonsense from Katrina, who doesn’t know how to be a human.
Sleepy Hollow is literally almost upon us, and as such, some of you might have either forgotten what led us to this critical point in the season and others of you out there might be scratching your head, trying to catch up from Season One. Since I’ve been following this show religiously, I’m here to catch you up on what went down this season in a series of bullet points and links to posts. Grab your popcorn, your special talisman or holy water, and read along.
“Here we are again—that old familiar place, where the winds will blow…” I think this, lyrics from Whitney Houston’s spectacular “Don’t Cry for Me” is an appropriate way to start out this post, seeing how a lot of Sleepy Hollow fans might feel like they need to start mourning the rest of Season Two.
So, how do we feel about that Sleepy Hollow midseason finale? I know there’s a lot of fans dealing with emotional bruising right now.
Say it ain’t so! Why did it have to be him! “It’s so hard to say goodbye to yesterday!”
It’s time to pour some out for our homie, Capt. Frank Irving. He fought the good fight. He bested War and significantly weakened him. However, why’d he have to die!
