Fox's Sleepy Hollow: Episode 2 Recap - 'Blood Moon'
Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) on the battlefield in the Revolutionary War in Episode 2 of 'Sleepy Hollow' -- FOX
Apparently, there is much more that goes into stopping the apocalypse than just battling a Headless Horseman in "Sleepy Hollow."
Here's what happened on Fox's new fall hit in Episode 2, "Blood Moon."
The Woods, Location Unknown: There's a screeching of horses as Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) dives through the forest, his wife Katrina (Katia Winter) calling his name. He runs and jumps over branches, the Headless Horseman and the other three riders of the apocalypse in hot pursuit. A root grabs Ichabod's leg, wraps around his body and drags him underground. Katrina is there... with a warning. Before the apocalypse can be unleashed, "an army of evil will make way for their arrival," she tells him. "The first dark spirit arises with the blood moon. She's one of us. You must stop her before she kills again."
Motel Room, Sleepy Hollow: Ichabod wakes up, shirtless, in just his small clothes. Inspired by Katrina's warning, he tries to leave his accommodation, but a cop tells him he cannot until Lt. Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie) arrives.
Sheriff's Station, Sleepy Hollow: Abbie and Capt. Frank Irving (Orlando Jones) discuss Sheriff Corbin's (Clancy Brown) death at the hands (well, axe) of the Horseman. Turns out the other two officers who saw the Horseman have "recanted" their stories," Irving reveals. And, Andy Dunn's (John Cho) death in custody last week? There's a video for that. He ran into the mirror and broke his own neck -- backwards. Irving admits something is going on, and while he's away in Albany to secure some "resources," he's leaving Abbie with some "latitude" to figure it out. "Don't embarrass me," he adds.
Motel Room, Sleepy Hollow: Angry over being unable to leave without her accompaniment, Ichabod refuses the just arrived Abbie's offer of some donut holes. He cuts to the chase, and tells her about Katrina's warning in the "vision."
Morgue, Sleepy Hollow: A corpse bag begins to move. A hand breaks through the body bag, clawing its way out. It's Andy! He's alive-ish, and his head is put back on straight. He encounters the demon and then vomits up a medallion. The demon speaks to him in a demonic tongue. "Release who?" Andy replies.
Sheriff's Station, Sleepy Hollow: Dunn gets into an official Sheriff's vehicle and drives it away.
Cemetery, Sleepy Hollow: Abbie attends Sheriff Corbin's funeral. Ichabod is in the cemetery too, looking at his wife's grave when he makes a revelation -- "she is one of us" means a witch is coming.
Night falls, and Dunn enters the cemetery, placing the medallion on a grave. It begins to smoke, then there's fire, followed by a corpse that is now alive. He gives it a message, "The ashes of the pious will ordain your resurrection. Take their flesh and you will reclaim yours."
The Woods, Sleepy Hollow: Dunn pulls over a driver and gets his name -- Jeremy Steven Firth. "Jeremy, wherever this road takes you, and it won't be far, I want you to know it wasn't personal," he tells the driver. Dunn walks away. The man's car wont' start. The corpse appears in the road, then on the hood of his car. It bursts into flames, leaving him Jeremy an ash corpse.
