Sleepy Hollow: “The Lesser Key of Solomon” Recap
This week, Sleepy Hollow took a break from fighting demons and delved into another topic: humans can be just as scary as demons. Especially, when they are Hessian soldiers whose sole purpose is to release the demons from Hell, including the demon that the show has been teasing for the last 3 episodes. He finally got a name: Moloch. He is the demon that Abbie and Jenny saw in the woods and he is responsible for killing John Cho’s character, Andy Dunn. Well, the first time Andy Dunn died.
Last night’s episode focused more on the strained relationship between Abbie and her sister Jenny. Their constant bickering with Ichabod scolding them makes for great bits of comedy. Lets hope they don’t keep this up, or else it will get very annoying very fast. Since Abbie is making a huge effort to prove how sorry she is for betraying Jenny, I think their bickering will be very minimal. Which is great, since Jenny agreed to help Ichabod and Abbie fight demons.
Story aside, “The Lesser Key of Solomon” was an okay episode. It’s definitely not getting worse. My main problem with the episode was the terrible CGI during the main action sequence. This can be excused since it’s the show’s first season. As the show continues to grow in popularity, the show will have more money to spend on better CGI.
Although I am loving each week’s “Ichabod is from the past” moment, this whole “Katrina” business needs to be wrapped up. These are connected because he spoke to an OnStar “NorthStar” representative about love after she unlocked the car. I, like many other fans, want some Ichabbie action, and don’t want to have to wait three seasons like they did on The Office. Katrina mentioned that she was trapped in some shadow world in the first episode, but has barely been mentioned since. Something needs to happen soon so he can get over Katrina and fully assimilate into the present.
