“…there’s a lot going on right now; monsters and creatures and Armageddon. It’s just a weird time.” — Nick Hawley

 

It seems Ichabod was promised to someone before he met Katrina.

Sleepy Hollow mixes a little business with pleasure in “The Weeping Lady.” While the threat of Moloch (Derek Mears) is ever present, revenge, secrets, and a bit of flirting make their way to the forefront. Oh, and there is a deranged, obsessed spirit trying to kill the women in Ichabod’s (Tom Mison) life because if she can’t have him, no one can.

While the legend of the “weeping lady” is interesting and ties into Ichabod’s past, the real entertainment comes from Ichabod and Abbie’s (Nicole Beharie) encounter with Nick Hawley (Matt Barr).

My previous suspicions about Hawley and Jenny (Lyndie Greenwood) were spot on but it seems Hawley may have eyes for another. I need to know more about his relationship with Jenny. Hawley has a sordid past and I am enjoying this character’s introduction on Sleepy Hollow. I want the writers to elaborate more on Hawley’s previous dealings with items of supernatural and paranormal origin. The crossbow he loans to Ichabod and Abbie has a very intriguing back story. I wonder if it actually belonged to Van Helsing.

For a guy who seems to care mostly about himself, he sure rushes to Abbie's aid.

I know many viewers want Ichabod and Abbie (“Ichabbie?”) to hook up so with the turn of events in “The Weeping Lady,” I’m sure people would have liked Abbie to comfort Ichabod. I do not want that to happen. I’m ready for Abbie to find romance but not with Ichabod. I wouldn’t mind seeing her and Hawley together. I’m becoming fonder of Barr with every scene he’s in. When the ghost of Ichabod’s former girlfriend Mary Wells (Heather Lind), aka the “weeping lady,” shows up, putting Abbie in a precarious situation…well, let’s just say I wish I were Abbie after all is said and done. I must learn CPR.

Henry’s (John Noble) futile attempt to put a wedge between his parents doesn’t sit well with Moloch, who apparently has his own plans for Katrina. What the heck are “Hellfire Shards?” I’m anxious to find out why Moloch wants or needs Katrina “turned” as he so menacingly puts it. I have to say I’m a bit saddened we see more of Noble in “The Weeping Lady,” but I think it’s clear Moloch will begin to fester and push further into darkness. If Moloch isn’t careful, he may perish at the hands of his minions. I have a feeling Henry and Abraham (Neil Jackson) will both have doubts about their continued allegiance to Moloch before it’s all over.

I'm ready to know more about Moloch's plans to rise and bring about the apocalypse.

How nice of Caroline (Laura Spencer), Ichabod’s new seamstress and fellow reenactment friend, to present him with an entire new wardrobe. I guess I’m thankful we won’t ever have to see Ichabod in skinny jeans again. I appreciate the writers keeping him in his period attire because it suits the character. Modernizing Ichabod in other ways is fine but keeping him in revolutionary garb fits the bill as he and Abbie continue their fight against the pending apocalypse. Maybe it’s the British accent but I don’t think anyone else can pull off wearing those clothes as well as Mison does. As an aside, I want that coffee mug – I Heart Founding Fathers.

Ichabod’s trust issues are completely justified. Why has Katrina kept so much from him? She knew what really happened to Mary Wells all those years ago yet lied to Ichabod about it. She also kept their son a secret. Granted, when Ichabod returned to the land of the living, a lot was happening. I know their love is powerful but if they hope to win the war against evil, Katrina must be forthcoming about everything. I also think Katrina needs to be careful with the use of her powers; using dark magic always has a price.

“The Weeping Lady” has many dark moments and the special effects are spectacular. The way the weeping lady looks is frightening. I commend Lind on her performance. She plays jealous so well — as if she were actually in love with Mison. The atmosphere around the weeping lady looks as though she is in her own watery bubble. While my attention was focused more on Hawley and his growing admiration of Abbie, it wasn’t hard to miss the weeping lady’s unique look.

I am ready for the story to move forward with the plans to bring Moloch back. A brief glimpse of Henry’s miniature town of Sleepy Hollow is foreboding. Admittedly, I’m looking forward to seeing more of Hawley and finding out whether Abbie will reciprocate his advances.
