Review/Recap Sleepy Hollow | ‘The Weeping Lady’ (Season 2, #5)

By: Cynthia Ayala

“A woman from Ichabod’s past arrives in town, undead and aiming to harm anyone in her path; Katrina and Ichabod learn disturbing things about each other; Abbie has flirtatious encounters.”

  • Synopsis provided by Shazam

The Weeping Lady tale is one of my personal favorites because I’m Mexican and it’s a classic Mexican tale parents tell their children to behave. So I’m constantly impressed when television adapts it to fit the modernized version that they need.

Review/Recap Sleepy Hollow | ‘Root of All Evil’

By: Cynthia Ayala

“Following a violent bank robbery, Abbie and Ichabod begin searching for a mysterious coin that may be more powerful than it seems; Irving must choose between his family and the greater good; Abbie and Jenny find their relationship tested.”

  • Synopsis provided by Shazam

Tom Mison is such a brilliant actor. I have to say, the ties-ins to the past are creatively written and drawn out. The scenes between the characters and the connectivity between the past and the present is ingenious. The creativity behind the show is amazing and so well structured that it makes the show stand out among the throng of supernatural shows.

Review/Recap Sleepy Hollow | ‘The Kindred’

By: Cynthia Ayala

“Abbie and Ichabod plot to resurrect a monster created by Benjamin Franklin as part of a plan to rescue Katrina; Frank faces the consequences of revealing the truth about his encounter; Jenny clashes with the new sheriff”.

    -Synopsis provided by Shazam

Definitely not a fan of the new sheriff in town.

Katia Winter is a beautiful woman who has a strong connection with her fellow cast members, but there are times throughout her scenes that need a bit of work. Her acting is reminiscent of Emma Watson in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire – overacting. She’s not a bad actress, it just seems like she has no idea how to capture an moment in a down to earth manner while also expressing the gravity of the situation.

Review/Recap Sleepy Hollow | ‘This Is War’

By: Cynthia Ayala

“Following the revelation about Henry Parish, Abbie is stuck in Purgatory, Ichabod is buried alive and Katrina is kidnapped by the headless horseman; Frank remains behind bars for a murder he didn’t commit.”

-Synopsis provided by Shazam

This show was great last season and this did not disappoint. The episode opens up picking up where the last season left off and then jumps to one year later…or does it? Turns out the first apx. 15 minutes of the show is just an elaborate vision created by Henry (played by John Noble) – who just happens to be Ichabod’s son – in order to find the location to the key to purgatory. The key allows more than one person to exit purgatory, no sacrifices needed. Continue reading “Review/Recap Sleepy Hollow | ‘This Is War’”
