7 Things to Know About SLEEPY HOLLOW’S “Awakening”

By on February 15, 2015

We’re fresh off an advance screening of Sleepy Hollow’s penultimate episode of the season and frankly we’re a little excited.

“Awakening” is, in our opinion, not only the best episode of the show to date (serving as a clever bookend to the pilot) but one which we know will both excite and divide fans at the same time.

The Network has teased that the episode will see “Ichabod and Abbie fighting against those who want to re-awaken a powerful witch coven” but trust us, that log line is just the tip of the spear. This installment is packed with so many plot and character developments that we’re not sure where the show will possibly go in its final episode next week.

We’ve selected 5 teasers for you below (being very careful to keep you spoiler free on all major plot points) to help ready you for what’s to come this week and next, but if we’re being honest, nothing’s going to properly prepare you for this one.


 1. A Major Character Death

Yes, they went there, Sleepy Heads. Fans can expect to see the death of a core character at the hands of another core character this week. (We’re absolutely not about to spoil you on this one.)

Gone too soon, or high time to end this particular person’s storyline? Decide for yourself come Monday.

One thing is certain though. This death will level the playing field and radically alter the dynamic of the season ahead if Sleepy Hollow is picked up for a third season.

    ugh… the “Major Character Death” has me leaning heavily towards Jenny being the one killed at (possibly) Katrina’s hand? Maybe the SUV blowing up? and that may cause a rift between the witnesses.

    Obviously I could be way wrong (and hopefully I am) but I don’t feel like Irving dying again would evoke a huge response from viewers and fandom, muchless cause a rift between team Witness.

      I’m leaning more towards Henry and possibly Ichabod.

      They wouldn’t dare kill off one of the mills sisters, right? RIGHT??

      Doubt it. The way the line says “time for this character’s story to come to a close” makes me think more Henry or Irving. I’m going for Henry, since John Noble finished filming about a month before the rest of the cast via his twitter.

    ‘Ichabod is about to lose the three most important things in his life this week.’ That settles it: Katrina to turn irretrievably bad, Henry to die and Abbie to be sent back in time.
