While Sleepy Hollow can kick rocks with flip-flops on, I am still a Nicole Beharie fan and will support anything she does outside of the show. Because of that I decided to take some time last night and watch the preview episode of the Bones/Sleepy Hollow crossover event.
I tried watching Bones some months back, but the sometimes gruesome nature of the show turned me off. Luckily, the rotting flesh and maggots were kept to a minimum, which enabled me to enjoy this episode’s true highlight: the awesome scenes between Abbie Mills and Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz).
From the moment the Witnesses enter the Bones universe, Abbie Mills is at home and fits in nicely with her new surroundings. Being paired with Booth for most of the episode gave her even more room to shine, and proved what most of us already knew: Nicole Beharie has chemistry with everyone. You could pair her with one of the show’s many corpses and she’d still be able to knock it outta the ballpark. She and Booth banter with one another playfully, and I found myself really enjoying their interrogation scene. I have heard complaints about Abbie’s role as an FBI agent on Sleepy Hollow. Some say they’re just not buying it. To that I say, watch her on Bones and you’ll change your mind. FBI Agent Abbie Mills is 100% in her element, and something tells me we probably have the Bones writers to thank for that.
Nicole turns in a flawless performance in this episode and she and Boreanaz should seriously think about working together again. I’d personally love to see Abbie Mills return to Bones, minus her British shadow of course.
Bones‘ Sleepy Hollow crossover episode The Resurrection in the Remains airs this Thursday, October 29 at 8pm. Do tune it. Nicole will not disappoint.
