Gemma: Welcome back! So, I’m pretty sure that Sleepy Hollow is the new purgatory. Rasha: Because of all the former residents of purgatory who are walking around? And also because the kid at the store at the end says it’s neither heaven nor hell. You know, the folks at LOST always denied the Island was […]
Gemma: I know we want it to go beyond this, but … that was pretty effing Freudian. Rasha: Well, you called it on the centrality of Henry’s feelings with his parent figures as crucial to the plot resolution. R: Going beyond or beside that for a moment, I am disappointed. Did they think that just […]
Rasha: Okay, let’s first name the things this episode is giving us, aside from life eternal. Gemma: A great deal of fodder for our theory on the meta-narrative of the show as a whole. The beautiful and disturbing ways that we never know the whole story. Complex, fascinating, disrupted family love. R: I’m getting served: […]
Rasha: I want to say about this episode: Vindicated! Gemma: Now we know what that mysterious red mist was. I enjoyed the decreased emphasis on MacGuffins, but I’m really starting to miss Jenny. We haven’t seen her do anything interesting for quite a while. R: Sigh, yes. And Irving. Or even Reyes. I could do […]
Rasha: Okay, I’m ready to chat this demonspawn episode. Gemma: Demonspawn away! R: I laughed out loud when they were trying to break in and Abbie’s like “They’re an evil society, TRY 666!” I love the pitch of high camp and high drama obtained in this show. G: I generally agree, but this one felt […]
Gemma: I can start the party by saying, I think the bit with the breathalyzer was one of my favorite Ichabod-in-modern-times moments. Rasha: I too thought the part where Ichabod won the breathalyzer was funny. I also enjoyed video game playing Ichabod. I really enjoyed Abbie’s snappy retorts in this episode, where she’s like “yeah, […]
Gemma: So, Ichabod’s jilted love! Rasha: It was a nice break to see a character not exclusively deployed in the battle between Good and Evil. She brings ambiguity on so many storylines! I suppose the Piper should fit this mold, but didn’t quite so well. Because jealousy and lies and Katrina! G: Yes! Confusion on […]
Rasha: Ok, to the demon zone? Gemma: The Demon Zone! G: Sad lack of Jenny this week. And rather joyful lack of Katrina. R: Sleepy Hollow taketh and it taketh the bad away.
Gemma: This ep felt evasive to me. Rasha: That is not what I was expecting, but go for it. G: I think they, pardon the phrase given the context, dodged the bullet. R: Oh, snap!
Rasha: So…The Hollow? Gemma: The Hollow, yes! Well, we certainly got our dose of Mr. Jones. R: I was talking with my resident bear about this episode, and his response was: so the only way a Black man can get out of jail and the abuse in a psych ward is by signing a pact […]
