1. Nicole Beharie, stop being so beautiful. Actually, don’t stop. I love looking at you.

2. Okay, so we’re going to keep on with the gimmick of Ichabod never changing out of his Ye Olde Outfit? Because I just listened to this old Fresh Air interview about typhus and body lice and yeah. Not so adorable anymore. Putting the ‘Ick’ in Ichabod for sure.

3. “Crossbows For Everyone!”  — from a memo found in television exec’s recycling

4. “Franklin and his strumpets!” Tee hee.

5. It is so endearing how Abbie and Ichabod find not one but TWO dead headless bodies and yet they pause, in a semi-dark room, to rifle through the desk for “important documents.”

6. Naked Benjamin Franklin! Is that Michael McKean? Either way, it’s perfect. The best parts of this show are not the rampaging about finding the Horseman or Moloch, but in awkward moments like this. Also, Ichabod’s hair is ON POINT in this scene.

7. I know Henry’s evil and all, but he just looks like a grumpy Senator Al Franken.

8. See! This is why I’m the perfect viewer for this kinda show, the perfect mystery novel reader! I NEVER guess that something’s a trick! I never “figure out” whodunit or whatever. Totally bought the whole illusion thing. Maybe this is also because I kind forgot what all happened in the S1 finale?

9. Please Keep John Cho On The Show Forever Stop Killing Him Kthanx

10. In no other show is product placement such an absolutely organic delight as it is in Sleepy Hollow. Ichabod dithering with his cell phone, having heart-to-hearts with the OnStar lady in Abbie’s car – so funny and enjoyable. #NeverStop

11. I like how every second Catrina has to be flailing and running around in her dumb off-the-shoulder tit-popping gown. She and Ichabod are like cartoon characters who always wear the same outfit. Also, let her somehow fall in love with John Cho. Because I like her but we all know that Ichabod and Abbie need to get naked and be happy in love forever and ever amen.

12. Why are blandly handsome blond men always villains? I mean, I like a blond man. Not if he’s a rapey obsessive Horseman of the Apocalypse creep, like Abraham. But what’s “blond” got to do with EVIL?

13. No Orlando Jones! Dude. Come on!
