'Sleepy Hollow': Ichabod Shocked By Family Revelations Past And Present (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

It was an episode of big reveals for Ichabod and Abbie on "Sleepy Hollow." First, Abbie had a vision while the two were trapped in a haunted house. It turns out Ichabod's wife had been there, and while there she had given birth to a son. Ichabod had no idea he even had a child.

Later, the pair discovered that they had a connection as well. Getting their hands on the family tree of the woman who helped deliver the boy, they found Abbie's mother's name on it. "My ancestor brought your son into this world," Abbie marveled.

"Seems that you and I, our paths were entwined from the very start," Ichabod replied.'s Kaitlin Thomas appreciated the reveal, noting though, "That bit of information doesn't exactly do much to explain why Ichabod and Abbie have been chosen by the powers that be as the two witnesses who must stop the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, but it does at least hint at the idea of their destinies having been connected for far longer than even they realized. This is a common theme in stories about saving the world, as the idea of destiny or fate often plays a large role in such tales.”

"Sleepy Hollow" continues on Fox Mondays at 9 p.m. EST.
