While I would’ve loved to have been able to preview tonight’s episode of Sleepy Hollow for you guys, Fox did not make the show available for screening by the press, thus I bring you next week’s episode, titled Dead Men Tell No Tales.
This is probably the season’s most highly anticipated episode because it features a cross-over with Fox’s other Thursday night drama, Bones. However, it isn’t the cross-over I’ll be focusing on for this review. Instead, I will be completely focusing on the episode’s various ships, including Ichabbie, Joeny, and Ichoe, the ship name I have chosen to give Ichabod and Zoe Corinth.
And so without further delay, let’s jump right into Sleepy Hollow fandom’s favorite new ship…
Joenny: Jenny is so gonna hit that. Yeah, they’re kinda like brother and sister, you know, if they were related and all. But they’re not, so I’m calling it now. Joeny have officially been given every episode’s b-plot and things are finally starting to heat up between them, and this whole Shard of Anubis storyline. Joe is finding out troubling things about his dad and feeling all emotional, and then there is Jenny looking all concerned while touching him and wearing a really tight sweater. LOL. The writing is on the wall, guys. I predict Joeny will officially set sail by mid-season.
Ichatrina: Yes, I am including Katrina because this is Sleepy Hollow and no one is ever really dead. Crane loved his wife, and though he was willing to gut her like a fish to save Abbie, he still loves and kinda misses her. Ichatrina fans may wanna tune in for this episode.
Ichoe: Bye, Felicia. Seriously. Somebody stop Crane before he kills again. It is a statistical fact, that you have a 100% chance of dying if Ichabod bows before you and your name is not Abbie Mills. Run, Zoe Corinth. Run, bitch. Run. You are as good as dead. Ichabbie is strong with the Force and it has already claimed the lives of two women. Don’t become the third. You don’t stand a chance. Even if you live, you’ll more than likely just be used as the catalyst that finally forces Crane to accept his growing feelings for Abbie. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Ichabetsy: Unless Betsy Ross is resurrected and kills Zoe Corinth, I think it’s safe to say this ship is dead. Betsy and Crane have their usual flashback this episode, but boy is it cold as ice. I don’t see things between these two going any further. As a matter of fact, something tells me Betsy isn’t quite who she appears to be.
Ichabbie: A lot of fans seem to think Ichabbie is endgame. And while that might be true, right now Ichabod and Abbie are sitting on the sidelines. They work together, fight together, laugh together, cry together, even live together. What they don’t do, is show any indication that either feels anything but friendship towards the other. As a matter of fact, Abbie spends quite a bit of time trying to hook up Ichoe in this episode. Abbie even tells Crane she thinks “Zoe is the one.” “Believe in Ichabbie” has become this fandom’s motto, and now more than ever fans will have to keep the faith. Abbie appears to be #TeamIchoe and is once again putting work before all else, including Ichabod.
Danabbie: Awww, shit. Remember how writer M. Raven Metzner recently told us Abbie would come under fire on her job? Well, this is the episode where that all starts to happen and we can thank another ship on this list for setting things off. Daniel is none too happy with Abbie, and things get really uncomfortable really fast. Unless episode six turns things around, Danabbie has officially hit an iceberg and is about to go down faster than the Titanic.
So, that’s about it for now. Dead Men Tell No Tales airs next week, October 29th, and is worth checking out if you enjoy Bones, Sleepy Hollow, or just looking at the amazingly beautiful Abbie Mills. As I previously posted, tongues will be wagging when the Lieutenant chooses to don a pair of booty shorts and pay tribute to Beyonce in the Halloween-themed episode. It’s one you won’t want to miss.
