I Think it’s Time Ichabbie Shippers Throw in the Towel
I can’t believe I’m about to do this, but I am actually going to play devil’s advocate here and defend Sleepy Hollow writers against accusations of shipper baiting. Now here me out. I myself have lobbied this claim in the past, but I think it dawned on me tonight that the writers aren’t purposely trying to bait fans into believing Ichabbie will one day be canon. These cute Ichabbie moments they’re giving fans, are what they think fans want. These moments are supposed to be reminiscent of the closeness the Witnesses shared in season one.
Sleepy Hollow and its Ichabbie hugs- they have practically become the stuff of legends. It was the Ichabbie hug in Sin Eater that first grabbed my attention and eventually led to me becoming the filthy shipper trash I am today.
Follow-up hugs in Bad Blood and This is War would go on to become just as addicting among Ichabbie fans, so much so writers and producers of the show have actively begun shipper baiting fans using the hugs for ratings.
Sleepy Hollow has announced its first big decision concerning season three and it is one that is sure to doom this already struggling show to the eternal flames of cancellation hell.

A newly slimmed down Sleepy Hollow (over half of season two’s cast is now gone) is set to return for its third season on October 1, according to a press release issued by Fox earlier today.
The show will relinquish its 9pm Monday night time slot to newbie sci-fi drama Minority Report, and will instead take up residence on Thursday nights at 9pm, right behind longtime crime drama Bones and opposite ABC’s political drama Scandal.
