Note: Generally I write recaps but since the prevailing opinion is that people prefer reviews on SpoilerTV, I'll shorthand the episode into the good, the frustrating, and the nitpicky….plus a few other categories and episode awards at the end. Thanks for reading and be sure to add your opinions in the comments.
Best Reason to Watch - new episode! No more hiatus or reruns.
Best Scene - Cicero tells Ichabod that his death led to a bigger purpose and for him to let go of his guilt
Best Humor - Abbie explains why she loves baseball and Ichabod gets into the spirit of things
Best Moment - Abbie's face after Jenny says they don't have a warrant
Best Emotion - Ichabod chooses to drink the poison and Abbie refuses to leave him while he does
MVP - the flashbacks
-They helped us get further into Ichabod's head and clarified how a former British soldier would have access to someone as high up as Washington. They also gave background into Ichabod and Katrina's story, which was a nice addition.
Most Anvilicious - The dramatic "bah-bohm" music when Frain gives Ichabod the box with poison in it
Biggest Twist - tie - Katrina's coven aligned with the Masons / Ichabod's guilt not blood tied him to Headless
Best Re-Appearance - Headless returns and tracks Ichabod's not-so-final resting place
Most Shocking Moment - tie - Sin Eater stabs Ichabod's palm / Ichabod in a British uniform
Cheesiest Moment - The blood divides into two pools
Most Gross Moment - Sin Eater eats the bloody bread
1. Abby: "Exercise your heartfelt right. Free speech. Just next time wait for the ump to make a call."
2. Captain Irving: "You know there are 2 things in life I believe a person should hold on to for as long as possible - virginity and skepticism. Surprisingly I already lost the first thing so I'm going to hold on to the second one for as long as possible."
3. Jenny: "Well the next time you see that witch in a dream, tell her to be more specific." - Amen, Jenny. That goes for every cryptic person in genre shows.
4. Ichabod: "You were right. There's always another way." Abbie: "Next time listen to me, okay? I can't go through that again." Ichabod: "My ears shall remain eternally open to your admonition." Abbie: "I don't know what the hell that means. Just say yes."
