Well, this is a fine predicament everyone is now in.

I read an article about this episode that talked about all the plot twist that would be in it. And it certainly was right. Absolutely did not see the one coming about Henry. Or the return of The Headless Horseman and what happens after that.

It was hard to look away from the screen when the show was on. Very intense episode. I have a headache from watching it. :)

It's going to be a long nine months until the next season begins.

Baby boy is all grown up now. Didn't see that coming.

I didn't think the creature design was as good as designs in the past. Some of the lost souls looked like they were wearing garbage bags. Well at least Crane gets some new old clothes.

Didn't see the Henry thing coming, but I knew there was something weird about him. So... are the Horsemen mortals with Crane issues? Wonder who the other two are.


Those two crawling lost souls... yeah, garbage bag wearing.

Ha! I wondered that myself - the Cranes ought to sit down and try to remember everyone they ever ticked off, because two of those people are probably horsemen 3 and 4.

I did not see that coming at all. I was looking at John Parish with about the same amount of "whaaaaa?" as the characters. That was pretty cool, it's been a long while since a finale surprised me like that.

I was surprised as well and was actually more suspicious of Katrina than Parish! I wonder about how/when the Horsemen are chosen, since they are more or less immortal, right? Yet the headless one was created in Ichabod's day and war thirteen years ago... what happened to the previous two? And what if they are not all people that have problems with Ichabod, but with both witnesses? As in, two who have some kind of relation with Ichabod (Abraham and Jeremy) and the other two are somehow connected to Abbie? Then, whenever new witnesses come forth (presumably some time after the current ones die and in this case they were even born centuries apart) new Horsemen are chosen as well? Perhaps to keep some kind of balance, although it is kinda unfair that there's two against four...

Add me to the "didn't see that coming" list.

So Moloch resurrected their son as the second horseman, have I got that right?

Same here.

Pretty much.

That was a funny way for Crane to get some "new" threads.

I wonder how long it will take them to get out of this mess next season. Everybody needs rescuing except Jenny and she might not be alive to save the others.

I think Jenny is alive, but badly injured (or maybe medium "badly"), and she'll wake up, manage to crawl out and somebody will come along and find her and take her to the hospital. That's my theory, and for now I'm sticking to it. :) Though I'm surprised the Horseman didn't stick around to make sure of whether she was dead or alive.

They did give Abbie a get-out-of-jail-free card: she can leave purgatory if she's forgiven. Maybe Jenny forgives her? (Or whoever has to forgive her, forgives her.)

I think Abbie is being written as the hero of this story, so she'll probably be the one to rescue Crane.

Crane has Abbie's phone on him doesn't he?

The only one in a real pickle will be Katrina. Unless they rescue her quickly somehow

She will figure out to rescue herself somehow... hopefully.

I love the hug that Crane and Abby shared when he and Katrina were leaving. And how he emphasized he would be back for her. Given the era Katrina and Crane were from, she must have wondered a bit about the hug they shared.

I've read so many theories about Katrina being evil that when she sort of side-eyed them hugging, I wondered if she was congratulating herself on delivering Abbie. They did a really good job of throwing the suspicion on her.

I'm wondering how the priest survived 250 years from being with George Washington at his death to the present day, and recognizing Ichabod the minute he saw him. And then later Ichabod recognizing the priest as having been at the death of George Washington.

What a way to find out baby Crane's fate, I'm in the didn't see that coming camp too!

I wonder how much of this nightmare was created by Katrina's coven. There seems to be a lot of people that interacted with Ichabod and Katrina in life who have ended up as vengeful angry souls providing fodder for Molok's plans.

What a great ending to season one. I was riveted to the screen from beginning to end, this is what story telling is all about. So glad to have a show again where all the characters have their place in a well written and paced storyline along with great background stories. This makes them interact wonderfully in the face of the challenges they face. Good humour too, that comes from the well crafted and rounded characters played fantastically by all the actors concerned.

A real hit for me, I eagerly await season two, the next installment of the battle against evil.

I couldn't agree more, it is such a refreshing change from case-of-the-week stuff where you could start watching a show in season 7 and pretty much not miss anything. So many details that turned out to matter - Crane's eidetic memory, the name Parish, the Rosary beads burning, Parish knowing how to kill the Golem ... just fantastic, I love it when what happens in a show actually matters down the road. And when the surprise is big enough that it's worth watching the entire season over again because now you're seeing it in another light.

It was a fantastic season finale. Really looking forward to season 2. That was fun the way Ichabod got new clothes and how pleased he was. :p

I also loved this episode. I was totally caught off guard about Parish! So interesting how all of the "good" guys are isolated by the end of the episode. I too don't think that Jenny is dead. Interesting theory about Katrina being evil, I didn't see it, but now I'll look for signs. I hope they plan more episodes for season 2!

Wow, what an episode.

I thought all along Jeremy was going to come back because the description of them locking him in the tomb never mentioned him being killed, but never did I think he would be the 2nd horseman and\or Henry. I really liked having Henry on the show and liked the idea of a sin-eater helping the good guys so I'm a little disjointed at that loss.

Looking forward to next season!

Great ending to a Great first season

I loved that! They were practically making out in front of her. Someone on another board said they were "making out with words.". I love that! I do not like Katrina, but I love Ichabbie.

I'm trying to take that scene with a grain of salt. Being that Katrina hasn't seen her husband outside of visting his dreams in 200 years, I think she'd be a bit jealous of any interactions he had with another woman. Not to mention the fact that probably 99.9% of the African-Americans Katrina had been around would have been considered property, she probably was seriously confused by his actions.

I really don't want Ichabod to be some dog who abandons his wife for the new girl, nobody comes out looking good in that scenario. They need to either kill her off or make her evil, and not at the last minute in S7 either - give him time to get over it too.

Ichabod is a gentleman through and through so I don't think he'll turn into a cheating husband. I'm thinking Katrina has to die--I'd rather she turn out to be evil, but thinking the writers might prefer a scenario where she sacrifices herself.

I'd rather she sacrificed herself too - I think if they make her evil it'll be one bad thing too many piled on Ichabod. And I would like to see her go out a hero since she's had the awful job so far of imparting only partial information in order to preserve the show's twists. (And being called a liar for it, when it's actually the writers pulling her strings.)

I think sacrificing herself is much more in line with her "Quaker" roots--although not much has been made of them. I think you're right, if she's evil it would be unfair to Ichabod who loves her so.
