Although Captain Irving has accepted that there are things going on in Sleepy Hollow that he would have never known about had he not chosen to trust Abbie and Ichabod, there’s still a slight disconnect between him and the two messengers. He’s seen the supernatural happenings around town with his own eyes and been a part of plans to trap the Headless Horsemen, but he’s never had the dangers of Sleepy Hollow directly impact him or someone in his life. His family is off in the city and while he’s had a close call or two with the Horsemen, he’s not dealing with the type of emotional trauma that Ichabod and Abbie are, trauma that has fueled their desire for answers.
On the next episode of Sleepy Hollow, Captain Irving will get the firsthand experience with the supernatural side of Sleepy Hollow that he had previously been lacking, as dark forces have targeted his daughter Macy. Previously, Irving just kind of trusted Ichabod and Abbie to do their own thing and didn’t necessarily insert himself into the action unless it was absolutely necessary. Now, though, he’s wanting to dive right into the research side of what his colleagues do in order to fight back against the demons that are after his daughter and save her from going through the type of hell that Jenny, Abbie, Ichabod, Katrina, and countless others connected to Sleepy Hollow have had to go through. But will he be able to keep Macy completely out of the line of fire or is Irving going to have some explaining to do for the weirdness surrounding her and her mother?
Elsewhere on Sleepy Hollow, a chapter of Jenny’s past gets revealed to Abbie through a video taken before Sheriff Corbin died.
Sleepy Hollow airs Mondays at 9:00 on FOX.
Will Abbie and Ichabod be able to save Macy from the darkness that’s been chasing her? Is this going to be the moment when Captain Irving comes fully on board Abbie and Ichabod’s cause? Why do you think Jenny chose to hide her possession from Abbie?
