“Skin”: “Don’t scan my testicles…ever again.”  The fact that that is a line in the show shows just how great the writing is in this show.  This episode was all about connections, forming connections.  Dorian, played by Michael Ealy, is struggling to fit into the world where he is not human and looked down upon by those who are human.  And then there is John, who is an anti-social as they come after the events of the first episode, the events the cost him his entire team and his leg.  And let me just say that Karl Urban and Michael Ealy make the perfect team.  They dynamic is amazing as it is special, something worth watching.  The action, the mystery and the depth that lies in the show, not only with the characters but also with the show itself is breathtaking.  But the real winning aspect of this show is the dialogue and the bromance between the pair of the characters.  Mondays @ 8PM (EST) on FOX.

“Necromancer”: Mind. Blown.  The headless horseman was once Ichabod’s best friend.  I did not see that coming.

That was perfect, that was brilliant and amazing.  Last week Ichabod and Abbie successfully captured the headless horseman after much luring and trapping.  Last night the interrogation began.  The writers have once again outdone themselves with how much story and rich detail they have added to this story.  The connection between Ichabod and the Headless Horseman was once only that of Death and blood, but now it is much more.  Katrina was engaged to the Headless Horseman, breaking his heart and causing him to hate Ichabod.  That is some intense drama right there.  The tension the adventure and the way the writers are adding to this story, making it their own is remarkable, spellbinding in fact.  An amazing show!  Mondays @ 9PM (EST) on FOX.
