On last week’s show after being resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time, Ichabod Crane found himself in modern-day Sleepy Hollow, where he quickly realized that evil had awoken with him. When Sheriff August Corbin was killed by the infamous Headless Horseman, Ichabod formed an unlikely bond with Detective Abbie Mills, a young cop who has her own childhood supernatural experiences. Together, the two embarked on a mission to stop evil and uncover mysteries dating back to the founding of our country. Captain Frank Irving hesitated to believe Ichabod’s tales of supernatural evil. But when Ichabod’s former wife, Katrina, provided clues about impending evil, they all began to realize that this town is anything but sleepy.

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