My loyal CraneCasters, apologies up front. I've had a busy week and was planing on writing this while out of town. Unfortunately as I sit to write this, I realize I have forgotten to pack my notes. So, I'm not going to be able to provide a play by play this week but I can give you my thoughts Sleepy Hollow's latest episode before taking a week off.
This episode revolved around a "haunted" house. While the episode was kind of a one off from the main narrative of the series, its not without MAJOR merit as we'll later find out. Instead of tackling Moloch and the Horseman head on we get some material that deepens the lore of the series and enrichens the ever growing mythology of this wonderfully crazy series.
On the outside of the episode, that is yes...Thanksgiving themed...Jenny and Irving share some fun flirtation and a budding relationship in the office. Maybe this should have been obvious, or we were looking at Abbie and Ichabod too much to notice, but we have our possible romantic couple here. Its bluntly brought front and center when Irving's wife shows up with his kid (who is disabled). Irving's dealings with this case are coming down at home for Irving as he hasn't been able to spend time with his daughter and his wife says if it continues she will demand full custody. This will be an interesting factor for Irving's character going forward. They are really fleshing him out nicely in the last 3 episodes. And the Jenny/Irving relations ship gets even more on the nose when his daughter flat thinks that Jenny is his girlfriend. I'm cool with all this, and am ready for the Irving-Jenny couple. How about you?
