#SleepyHollow – THE VESSEL

Aaaand we’re back! Have you guys missed me? 😉 Sadly, this is the last episode before the season finale but let’s get straight to it! The episode begins with Abbie talking Icky into trying on some more modern clothes. Icky emerging in skinny jeans is quite the glorious sight. “Hell hath frozen over,” Abbie says. Icky: “Indeed.” A little later, “One sign of the impending apocalypse is surely skinny jeans.” Behold:

LOL Within another few minutes, he’s taken them off and gone back to his old-school britches. 😦 

Meanwhile, Captain Irving is having the guy from the park (see last post ) interrogated, trying to find out why the guy threatened his daughter. The guy doesn’t remember anything about it. When Irving calls his priest friend to see what he thinks, they figure something is possessing these people. It seems to hop from body to body.



Soon a call comes in from a possessed someone inside the station, demanding George Washington’s Bible or they’ll hurt his daughter. Irving is all “Oh hell no!”

Oh hell no!

Irving enlists Abbie and Icky’s help because the bible was buried with Ichabod. Katrina has told Icky the bible holds the secrets to defeating the forces of darkness.

In their research, our heroes find that Sheriff Corbin had an entire section of his files devoted to possession and had a video of a woman he’d found who was possessed. Gasp! It’s Jenny!

Possessed Jenny

While possessed, Jenny told Corbin he’d be killed by the Horseman and that the demon itself would kill Abbie. Jenny claims not to remember what happened and it’s obvious she’s very scared.

Meanwhile, Irving has taken his family to a safe house. It’s anything but safe since the demon has possessed one of the cops Irving brought to help protect them. Soon after they arrive, it transfers to Abbie’s old flame Morales.

Icky finds out from Jennie that she’s trying to protect Abbie and he talks her into helping so they can save Macey.

Irving brought the priest along with him to the safe house. The priest salts the thresholds and possessed Morales asks the other cop to brush the salt away so he can enter. Then he kills the other guy. We barely knew ya.

A little too late, our heroes find out who this demon is. Ancitif is known to be a leader of Moloch’s minions. They need an ancient lantern to exorcise the demon so that it can’t jump from body to body anymore. Both Icky and Jenny recognize the lantern. Icky saw some of them given to Ben Franklin back in the day. /Another huge historical figure who was actually a demon fighter. Some may not, but I like it. Jenny says she knows a group of patriots who have some…

Unknowingly, Irving and his estranged wife have left Morales alone with Macey and now the demon’s got her. Irving walks in to find her floating in midair with the white eyes. “Time’s up, Dad,” she/it says. Oh no!

Possessed Macey kills the priest, then takes Mom and says she’s next if it doesn’t get the bible. Abbie, Icky and Jenny are still trying to get the lantern despite Irving telling them he needs the bible NOW.

The Vessel

Abbie and Icky get the lantern but the group of extreme patriots catch them. Icky tries to reason with them but it takes Jenny ordering them to let her friends go and they’ll bring the lantern back.


Irving has gone to retrieve the bible but our good guys hid it from him. They trap the demon in a salt circle and send it back to hell via the lantern. Woo hoo! Macey’s okay, Jenny’s okay. It’s all good. Sister hugs! Aww…

In our ending scene, Icky has made a concoction to read the invisible ink in Washington’s bible. The date December 18, 1799 is written in Washington’s hand, but according to our history books, he died on December 14 so…what does this mean? Actually, I didn’t see the big deal about him dying before that date. He could’ve easily written it beforehand and their assumption that it meant he wrote it on that day was a little confusing to me. But I’m willing to go along with it and anxiously await the next episode! Unfortunately, it’s the last one of the season. *cries* At least it’s a two-hour episode but still I mourn the short season. In a recent TV Guide interview, Nicole Beharie (Abbie) says, “I don’t think anyone sees what’s coming.” Uh-oh….
