Sleepy Hollow is developing quite an interesting story in its second season and while things are developing, it is becoming more and more obvious that Katrina’s and Ichabod’s paths are diverging slowly, but persistently. And despite the fact that the first season of Sleepy Hollow made absolutely no indications that there is a possibility for a love bond between Abbie and Ichabod, it now appears that the two of them are really meant to be.
In the first season of Sleepy Hollow, Crane was desperately trying to save his wife from purgatory and it seemed like their love is stronger than anything. After all, their love story goes back to 250 years ago and these two survived quite a lot. However, when Katrina is eventually saved and Abbie takes her place in purgatory, the entire concept of Sleepy Hollow gets another perspective. After they went to hell and back together, the two witnesses are suddenly separated and Crane spouses are reunited again. Well, for a while at least. However, several viewers were disappointed when they saw the season two finale and most of them anxiously waited to see what season two will bring.
At the beginning of the second season, Ichabod manages to save Abbie from purgatory and much to the great joy of the viewers, the two witnesses were reunited. First shocking twist was revealed when Katrina decided to stay with the Headless Horseman, aka Abraham, instead of escaping with Crane, who came to her rescue. Again. Well, with Katrina out of the picture, the bond between Abbie and Ichabod is only becoming stronger.
The fifth episode of Sleepy Hollow‘s second season brought another unexpected twist in Katrina’s and Ichabod’s love saga. Apparently, she is keeping many secrets from her husband, who was clearly disappointed when he found out that she was never completely honest with him. Not only did she lie about being a witch, Katrina was also in a way responsible for the death of Ichabod’s ex fiancée. To make the story even more complicated, Katrina actually wrote a letter to Ichabod in his ex fiancée’s name, making him believe that she gave up on their relationship.
Regardless of the fact that it seemed like Abbie and Ichabod will never actually become a couple, since his wife was alive and trapped in purgatory, the entire story got some new angles now that Crane is learning the truth about his wife. There is no doubt that he loves Katrina very much, but he does not believe in a marriage in which there is no trust. Besides, Abbie is always there for him, helping him to adjust into this new world that is in many ways still a mystery to him. Furthermore, they are spending a lot of time together, they are sharing everything with each other and what is most important, they are honest to one another and they trust each other.
Well, the fact is that opinions on this Ichabod-Abbie-Katrina triangle are divided. There are viewers, who believe in Ichabod’s marriage with Katrina, while most viewers wish to see Crane and Mills together. However, with recent events, the creators of Sleepy Hollow most certainly gave the viewers something that will keep their minds occupied, until it is finally revealed which one of these two women will eventually end up with Ichabod. Well, Abbie most certainly has the advantage now, since Katrina messed up big time and her husband does not trust her any more.
