Sleepy Hollow – Season 1, Episode 4: “The Lesser Key of Solomon”

Sleepy Hollow: The Lesser Key of Solomon

Idea for new show:  Ichabod Crane – Dr. Love  At first I thought he was talking to himself, then thought maybe he’d called in to a radio show.  That whole scene was too cute.  But, why was the assistance called NorthStar?  I’m sure there is a placement deal for the vehicles they drive and they couldn’t get permission to use the name OnStar?

So, Corbin didn’t tell Abbie about his relationship with Jenny.  I understand that because Abbie wasn’t ready to face what the girls saw in the woods.  Seems he kept a lot of secrets from her. 

I find it amusing that Jenny had trouble believing Ichabod.  She’s the one who’s always believed what they saw and she had trouble accepting a time-traveler?

I knew the guy they captured would end up killing himself.  I’m just surprised it took him so long and he gave up so much information first.  The demon’s name is Moloch.  There was also demon named Moloch on Buffy.  Hundreds of years ago, he was trapped in a book.  When that book was scanned into an archive, Moloch was released into cyberspace.  I mention this because the Hessian music teacher said that Moloch was in charge but someone called him on the phone to tell him to go after Jenny.  The voice on the phone was computerized.  I’m sure it was to disguise it from the audience (possibly a character we know), but it was just a neat coincidence.

What made Abbie so sure that throwing the book into the vortex, would close it?  It could just have easily strengthened it and made it open faster.  What did they do with the bodies of the other Hessians?  Abbie threw one into the vortex but what about the others?  Did they just leave them or did Abbie actually report everything that happened to the authorities like she wanted to? 

Oh, and I liked when Ichabod stepped in front of Abbie at Jenny’s foster home.  He’s come to know her so well already.  He knew that look on her face meant she was getting ready to kick that bitch’s ass.

  • “They left without a farewell.  How impolite.” — Ichabod
