SLEEPY HOLLOW is really starting to pick up steam! This week’s bombastic installment gave us a great (hopefully recurring) ally in Abbie’s kick-ass sister Jenny, exposed a Hessian sleeper cell operating in town, uncovered the real reason (and name) for the Boston Tea Party — and revealed the name of the Big Bad: Moloch, the god of child sacrifice.
The story began with a reenactment of the Boston Tea Party — depicted as a diversionary tactic dreamed up by Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) and Samuel Adams to distract the redcoats while Ichabod and a strike team board a British ship to steal a mysterious box. However, it is guarded by a Hessian who blows himself up rather than hand over the box. Nevertheless, Ichabod gets his hands on it and sends the cargo off to Gen. George Washington. In the present day, Abbie (Nicole Beharie) discovers that her sister has escaped from the asylum.
