Beharie, who plays Lt Abbie Mills, told Digital Spy: “I think the stories are better than ever this year. There have been a couple of stand-out episodes, like [episode five] ‘The Weeping Lady’.
“I loved that episode because it’s a water episode and I love doing stunts – and that involved both.”
Some fans have objected to the apparent sidelining of Nicole Beharie’s character this season, but the actress claimed that Abbie’s family background remains “a big part of the story”.
“[In season two,] we find out about her family history,” she said. “We find out about her mother being in a psychiatric ward. We find out what the legacy is with the Mill sisters.
“Without that information, we’re unable to move on through the rest of the season. It’s a big part of the story of Sleepy Hollow.
“At the end of last year, I got a lot of questions from the fans. A lot of people kept saying to me, ‘We get why Ichabod Crane’s a witness. He’s got all this history and he came from the past – but Abbie just seems to be a regular girl. She’s tough, but what else is going on? There’s no supernatural element to her.’ Well, that’s been filled out a little bit in season two.”
