This week’s episode of Sleepy Hollow still continued to deliver the thrills and chills of the previous three weeks, but also managed to offer up some important answers. Not only did we get a new puzzle to Abbie’s backstory, but we also learned more about Jenny Mills as well. Also, after waiting four weeks, viewers finally learned who summoned the Headless Horseman.
“Remember when I told you this place was going straight to hell? I hate being right.” Jenny made a run for it at the end of last week’s episode, and this week Ichabod and Abbie went looking for her. During the course of their search, Abbie discovered just how difficult Jenny’s life has been when she visited one of her sister’s foster parents.
