Sleepy Hollow – Episode 2.17 – Awakening (16-Feb-2015)
Henry Parrish returns armed with John Dee’s Grimoire, a powerful book of demonic magic, with a plan to reconstitute Sleepy Hollow’s long dormant – but at one point powerful – coven of witches. His initial attempt is met with noticeable, albeit limited, success, prompting him to seek out an ally in his cause. As Crane and Mills investigate three separate incidents related to Henry’s handiwork, they are lead to one of the many duplicate copies of the Liberty Bell, the repeated peal of which appears to have prompted recent cases of unexplained, uncontrolled rage in some of the town’s residents. Following some research, they discover the bell’s provenance had been closely associated with an “Awakening” ritual that sparks the powers of those with Witch heritage… which, in Sleepy Hollow, potentially numbers among the thousands. Meanwhile, Katrina – intrigued by her recent encounter with the Warlock Solomon Kent – tries to make sense of his prophetic warning about her more powerful “dark side,” and gets an unexpected, though not wholly unwelcome, visitor, which puts her and Ichabod at direct odds. And Jenny tells Abbie and Ichabod what she’s learned about the true nature of Frank Irving’s soul… that it is still under some sort of demonic control. This realization is proven out, complicating the team’s current mission even further, and forcing Jenny to resort to drastic measures.
