'The Weeping Lady' -- SH 2x05
Warning: Spoiler Alert
I'm starting to become rather suspicious over the fact that all of these weird occurrences, and ghosts, and Horsemen, and whatever seem to have some sort of origins that lead back to Ichabod (doesn't seem that there are that many in the way of having a connection with Abbie, but we have at least two Horsemen and a ghost that has been haunting Sleepy Hollow for two hundred years that are connected to Captain Skinnyjeans in some way). That is far too many in the way of coincidences ... more than I think should be all that normal even if he is one of the Witnesses.
I won't lie that it was kind of awesome to see Henry get dressed down by Morloch, cuz it's sometimes fun to see the bad guys get kicked in the ribs for trying to overreach ... well, at least when it's a baddie that isn't completely awesome and someone that you would love to win. I have a feeling that Morloch is going to be super pissed when he realizes that Henry has something else going on with the Pied Piper's bone flute (cuz I really don't think that he has any idea of what Henry is doing with that ... something awesomely evil, I'm sure). I have the feeling that all of this overreaching, and desire to get personal revenge on his parents, is going to be the ultimate downfall of War (since he's making their suffering a little too personal and seems to be forgetting the larger plan that he's supposed to be working toward).
The fact that Katrina has been lying to Ichabod about pretty much everything is certainly going to put a damper in their relationship, and I really feel bad for him. It's gotta be a blow to think that you know someone, be completely in love with them, think you can trust them ... and then, find out at pretty much every turn that they've been keeping huge secrets from you the entire time. I'm not sure how he's going to be able to trust her from now on. I don't see him just leaving her to remain in danger by staying with Abraham/Death, cuz he's a stand up guy, but I don't see him ever having the same amount of trust in her that he had before. Maybe this is part of the plan of the writers to bring in the love triangle aspect a little more strongly, since Ichabod and Abbie have a very solid relationship, and neither of them has done anything to make the other doubt any motivations.
Should it make me more suspicious of Hawley now that we know that he's also had (what appears to have been) a sexual relationship with Jenny? The fact that he knows both of them, and he seems to have been working angles on both of them, makes me think that there might be something more going on with this one. I really hope that it turns out that he's the Han Solo of the group (where you aren't completely sure about him in the beginning, but in the end, he turns out to be a valued member of the Scooby Gang).
