So, Ichabod Crane, you have just managed to save the world. What’s next? This may sound like a fairly silly question, but it is the sort of debate that we imagine the character asking himself now that Moloch has been defeated. In killing off the central villain of “Sleepy Hollow” at midseason, you have left the show in an interesting, but precarious, state of limbo. It really is anyone’s guess just how things could progress moving forward from here.
So to say that we are going to see the character struggle with a sort of identity crisis moving into the second part of this season would be a fair assessment. It is also something that star Tom Mison himself seems to agree with, judging from what he said to TV Guide recently about his story moving forward:
“This has been the fun part of the second half of the season, working out where do the two witnesses go from here. Moloch’s been killed. What now? Of course, it’s not going to be as simple as the job’s done, let’s just go get some nice new clothes and a haircut. Instead, there will always be a new dilemma. But particularly when we return from the midseason break, you do see a big dilemma, where Ichabod is desperately trying to find more to do as a witness because that’s the only reason he’s here in this weird new world, this new time, is because he’s got a job to do. But if the job’s finished, what is the point of Ichabod Crane in the 21st century?”
There will always be threats, but we are very much hoping for a little slice of fun, as well. Seeing the fish-out-of-water aspect of the series remains a personal favorite to watch.
