Sleepy Hollow RECAP 9/30/13: Season 1 Episode 3 “For the Triumph of Evil”

Tonight on FOX their new mystery-adventure drama SLEEPY HOLLOW continues with a new episode called, “For the Triumph of Evil.”  On tonight’s show Mr. Sandman give me a nightmare?  Did you watch last week’s premiere episode?  We did and we recapped it right here for you!

On last week’s show still adjusting to his 21st century reality, ICHABOD CRANE (Tom Mison) and Det. ABBIE MILLS (Nicole Beharie) moved forward in their mission to unravel the mysteries lurking in Sleepy Hollow. A frightful vision from Ichabod’s former wife, KATRINA (Katia Winter), sent the unlikely duo on the hunt for a vengeful witch from the 1700s who had been awoken by unknown evils and was on a path of destruction in the quaint town. Meanwhile, despite all odds, Officer ANDY BROOKS (John Cho) was back and on a questionable mission of his own.

On tonight’s show Another soldier in the army of evil, the Sandman, seeps into the dreams of the residents of Sleepy Hollow. By infiltrating their minds at night, he tortures them to the brink – all because they, at one time, turned a blind eye to justice. When the Sandman seemingly sets his sights on Abbie, she is forced to begin to face her past – and her institutionalized sister, JENNY (guest star Lyndie Greenwood). With Ichabod by her side, and her life at stake, the duo must try to defeat the Sandman and continue their fight against evil.

onight’s Sleepy Hollow premiere is going to be exciting, and you won’t want to miss. So be sure to tune in for our live coverage of Sleepy Hollow — tonight at 9PM EST!

RECAP: Abbie arrives at the police station after being called in by Captain Frank, he walks Abbie to the interrogation room; where Ichabod Crane is interrogating Abbie, it is clear that this isn’t reality. This is a dream state that Abbie is in, this is the introduction of the sandman. Abbie is trying to get out of the interrogation room but can not. A white tall bald figure with sand pouring out of his eyes appear and then Abbie wakes up. Abbie arrives at the scene of an incident that’s about to go down and tells Ichabod Crane about the dream she had, Dr. Vega is seen at the top of the building about to jump, she asks for Abbie. Abbie makes it to the top of the building and is talking to Abbie and mentions how it’s her fault about something with Jenny. Dr. Vega makes the jump and makes a clean landing on the hood of a car. It then cuts to Abbie, Ichabod and Frank walking around the scene of the crime, Abbie tells them about how Dr. Vega had white glazed eyes. Ichabod asks forensics to check the eyes of the body. Dr. Vega’s eye burst into sand, making it clear that the sandman has stricken and killed his first prey.

Frank wonders what the hell is going on, Ichabod comes to the conclusion that the woman was probably sleep walking at the time while she jumped. Abbie lets them both know how Dr. Vega mentioned her sister Jenny in her sleep walk state before jumping. Ichabod asks if Abbie can trust Frank with the information on the Sandman. Ichabod believes that the dream Abbie had could be a warning for upcoming events, Ichabod tells Abbie that a soldier sent a creature of some sort to him and his men in the past. Ichabod and Abbie watch a videotape, where a girl is speaking about her contact with the Sandman, Ichabod slows down the tape but Abbie turns it off. Abbie is reading off the several other people who experienced what the Sandman’s presence. Ichabod keeps mentioning the dream Abbie had the eyes that burst into sand, Abbie doesn’t believe it’s an evil demon from the woods because she doesn’t know what it would want. Ichabod tells Abbie that she and her sister are a threat to the Sandman and that’s why their targets. Ichabod wants to see Abbie’s sister Jenny, Abbie is a bit reluctant at first but agrees to take him to Jenny.

Ichabod asks Jenny who could of killed the doctor, and tells Jenny about the four horsemen of the apocalypse. Ichabod wants Jenny to help with fighting the four horsemen of the apocalypse, but she clearly doesn’t want to because of not having a good relationship with Abbie.

Ichabod walks out of the police station with Abbie and asks her what’s with the horrible relationship with her sister Jenny, Abbie tells Ichabod that she’ll trust him with the reason. Abbie explains when she woke up in the woods after seeing the white demon in the forest with her sister, a search party found them. Abbie didn’t say anything about the demon, but her sister Jenny didn’t and told the man about the demon. When Abbie was asked if she saw it, she said she didn’t see anything. That lead to her sister Jenny being put into a mental institution, she brings up about her parents being gone, but doesn’t say more about it. Ichabod understands that Abbie was afraid of the creature and the consequences of what would of happened. The man who saw the white demon along with Abbie and Jenny, didn’t say anything about the demon. Ichabod decides to go pay the man who found both Jenny and Abbie in the woods a visit, to see if he also saw the Sandman. It shows the man sitting in a chair, he gets sleepy and falls asleep. His eyes shoot open and he’s clearly in a dream like state, he’s looking for someone around the workshop.

The man asks to speak to Abbie, she puts on a bullet proof vest and gets a gun to enter the house. Ichabod watches a little worried, Abbie enters the house slowly with her gun at point in case.
