Every day is Halloween on FOX’s Sleepy Hollow, which is why the supernatural drama has pulled out all the stops for Oct. 29th’s “Dead Men Tell No Tales.”

Zombie soldiers running wild on Halloween night, Pandora’s deadly machinations, and an assist from Bones‘ Temperance Brennan and Seeley Booth make this Holiday double feature a little extra special.

Remember that 200 year old body, minus its skull that intrigued the lab in Bones’ “The Resurrection in the Remains”? Well it’s about to make a reappearance, and because this is the town of Sleepy Hollow, you can expect it to reattach its head, climb out of its coffin and raise a little hell just in time for Halloween.

With Brennan (guest star Emily Deschanel) and Booth (guest star David Boreanaz) working a forensic angle, Abbie and Ichabod set out to stop disaster from striking the town, put some ghosts to rest, and learn a little bit about themselves in the process.

If you’re a regular reader of these types of articles here at ScreenSpy, then you’ll know we do our best to avoid spoiling major developments and plot lines that might otherwise ruin your enjoyment of the episode (we want you to enjoy it as much as we did).

For that reason, we consider the following carefully structured and worded points to be teasers rather than outright spoilers.

However, as always, we urge you to be cautious, as one man’s teaser is another man’s spoiler.

Here then are 6 things you might like to know about Sleepy Hollow’s upcoming “Dead Men Tell No Tales.


Sleepy Hollow is all about the costumes this Halloween, and “Dead Men Tell No Tales” sees Abbie, Ichabod, Jenny and Joe embracing the tradition with a costumed game of bowling.

While Crane confuses everyone with his Colonial outfit (No, he’s not dressed as Ichabod Crane, but Sam Adams. Can’t you tell the difference?), Nicole Beharie fans will love her choice. We’re not going to spoil it for you, but we can tell you it’s flawless.
