When EW spoke to Sleepy Hollow showrunner Mark Goffman a few weeks ago, they had a chance to chat about the biggest moments in the midseason finale—namely, the untimely death of you-know-who (R.I.P.!) and that game-changing final twist. Read on see what Goffman has to say about the episode—and what we can expect from Sleepy when it returns in 2015.

First things first: Why did you decide to kill Irving?
Certainly it was tough decision, and incredibly emotional. For us, it was about what’s best for the storytelling on the show, and giving a great trajectory for his character. We felt like it was a really good ending to that part of his story.

He gets to go out heroically.
It’s a heroic, epic ending. It really felt like the right decision for his character, and how it would motivate Abbie and Crane from that point and moving forward. And you know, in Sleepy Hollow, anything can happen.

Right—it does seem like if you die on this show, you don’t necessarily have to stay dead.
Well, Andy Brooks is an example of a character who was dead but not gone. And Corbin has been back. So while again, I felt like it was the right way to play out his storyline, I think you’ll find that there is more to his story.

That’s good to hear. And in the final scene, Henry kind of finds his humanity—that was definitely a shock.
That was also something that we came up with early on. Both Henry and Headless, in humanizing them this year and developing them as three dimensional villains—we really wanted to give Henry an arc that made sense for his life. Here’s somebody who has suffered so much, and was tormented, and then buried alive for over 200 years, and he had so much faith in Moloch. Moloch he saw as his true father. And that moment when he realizes that Moloch has just used him for his own ends, and really doesn’t share that reciprocal love that only a father and a son have, that sort of unconditional love—when he realizes that, that’s what really guided his decision. We had this beautiful parallel with the Akedah, or the story from the Bible…

Abraham and Isaac.
Yeah. And so we tried to draw that parallel: When are you willing to sacrifice your son for the mission? But for Henry, [killing Moloch] really seemed like the right move. I think there are a lot of ways to interpret that moment, and there’s a lot more that we’re going to discover about Henry in the back half. Another one of the things that was brought up—I think you may have brought it up—all of the stories [this season] seemed to come from Henry. That is absolutely not the case in the back half.

Is he “good” now? I know that’s a silly question—but is he on Abbie and Ichabod’s side at this point?
That’s worth watching to find out, right? To me, just because he killed Moloch in that moment doesn’t make him good. We don’t know why he did it. It could have been purey because he felt betrayed by Moloch. It could be because he just couldn’t summon the strength to kill his mother. It could be because he found good within him. It could be something wholly unexpected, and he has his own plan. We don’t know yet, and that’s something that we’ll find out over time.

Moloch’s been the big bad of the show thus far. Him being gone, how does that shift things?
That was really exciting to me. We felt like we had played out Moloch’s story, and we wanted to liberate the show from just seeming like we’re telling stories about Moloch’s vision of the apocalypse, or that all of the evils seem to be generated by Moloch and Henry. So this really freed us up. I think it’s going to be really exciting. Abbie and Crane won’t know where the next creature is coming from, or what evil they’re facing, or why. So the storytelling then becomes much more interesting.

Could this also free up space for some purely comic episodes?
Yeah, that’s another thing that we feel like we want to capitalize on more. We’ve got some great twistory coming up. Benjamin Franklin’s going to be coming back; we have an episode with Thomas Jefferson, and I can’t wait to tell you who’s going to be playing Thomas Jefferson. It’s really fun. We also have a lot of fun with the “man out of time” moments with Crane. I think we have some great ones planned. As we get back to episodes that are really Abbie/Crane centered, I think that comedy and levity just naturally emerges, because Tom [Mison] and Nicole [Beharie] are just so good at it. The tone that we get from them is just a joy to watch and to write.

I loved seeing them play Heads Up together in episode 210.
[laughs] Yeah, we have some new ones coming up. We’re going to learn a little bit about Fort Knox—Henry Knox, who was around in Crane’s day. There’s going to be a karaoke scene, or episode with some karaoke in it. We’ll see Crane understanding a microphone and bouncing balls on the screen. [There’s] some interplay with robots; an encounter with a real estate agent, which I think is going to be pretty hilarious.
I was also wondering whether Irving’s death opens a space for Hawley to become more of a member of the team.
We have a great core, a fantastic ensemble. Hawley, I think, has joined in a really interesting way—but he is a character that by nature is a loner, and has really learned to fend for himself. And so while I think there’s a great and terrific bond that’s starting to form—this is Sleepy Hollow, anything can happen. We have an episode coming up in the back half that really features him, and we get to learn a lot more about his history. I think people are going to understand him a lot better after that episode.

Is there anything else you think people should know?
You know, the season finale, which I’m working on now, is a real mind-bender, and I think we listen to our fans—we love that they’re so passionate about our show, and we really aim to a high bar for their standards and our own. I think when we get to the end of the season and you see how it all comes together, and what Abbie’s arc ends up being at the end, it’s really mind-blowing. I hope we get to have this conversation in about two months, because I’m really curious to see what people think.

Joseph Morgan has done a photo shoot recently for The Laterals. The Laterals is a weekly updated online media hub for the Creatives, the Artists, the Designers, the Entertainers, and the mobile. It is viewed, and designed for the trendy and the conservative. They cover interviews on the people of the world, the extra, the ordinary, and the believer.

Check out the gallery below and read some of the interview:

How did you first get involved in The Vampire Diaries / The Originals universe, and what are your thoughts on that?
I was lucky that around the time I decided I wanted to be involved in television this great role came up in TVD. I got a tremendous amount of support from the fans who shared my passion for the genre. It was really them that started to entertain the idea of a spin off by making trailers on YouTube for ‘The Originals’. Neither the producers nor myself had communicated our shared desire to make this show so I think I have the fans to thank for forcing the issue.

What is your perspective on your character, Niklaus Mikaelson?
Hated by his father and rejected by his siblings, Niklaus Mikaelson is the black sheep of the family and the product of a deeply dysfunctional upbringing. He is possessive over his siblings and utterly controlling of their actions, when we first met him in TVD he was carting them all round in coffins. He is desperate for the love and affirmation that was lacking in his childhood, this makes him prone to fits of rage that are fuelled by his bestial side. He is a sociopath, unpredictable and deadly… but most of all Klaus is lonely. Whenever he gets close to forming a meaningful bond he destroys it, fearful of the vulnerability it exposes in him. He is determined not to appear weak and because of that he will not allow himself to truly trust or love. Still, there is Hope.

How much do you pay attention to social media and your followers?
A lot. Since I started using Twitter I have been a big fan of it. It allows me to have direct contact with people want to connect with me. It is a terrific way to exchange recommendations about books or films or anything else you are passionate about. It has helped my wife and I raise thousands of dollars for charity, including our latest project for Charity Water.

What do you do to prepare yourself for your role?
It truly depends on the part, but I believe the best way to prepare is the way that inspires you the most. If you find inspiration for the role though paintings and poetry then that’s your way in, if you discover the walk of your character by watching your pet cat move then there’s your key. To be inspired is a must for me.

Where do you find inspiration – for yourself, and for your work alike.
My wife is a great inspiration to me as well as a tremendous source of support. We constantly bounce ideas back and forth. I read a lot, I enjoy art, music, films, comics, video games and travel. I write and paint and am a campfire guitarist. I gain inspiration from learning about others and from that I learn about myself. I try to experience as much as I can so I can draw from it. I’m curious. Inspiration can be found everywhere if you open yourself to it.

Lastly, tell us something about yourself that your fans may be surprised to learn.
Years ago, my brother and I were in a band together called the Long Men. My brother is a very talented musician, he sings and plays the guitar.

ETonline had an exclusive chat with The Originals executive producer Michael Narducci to bring you answers for all of your most burning body-switching questions.

We have a new Rebekah among us! Tell us about the latest Originals body swap.
MN: Well it’s definitely not a new character in any way. It definitely is the Rebekah who we know and love who has been off raising hope for the past several months. Because of the events of this episode, what happens is she is tricked and trapped and she finds herself in a different body. We’ve seen what it’s like for Finn and Kol to be in a different body and now we’re going to see what it’s like for Rebekah too.

What is it about actress Maisie Richardson-Sellers that made her the perfect choice to play Rebekah?
MN: She’s such a phenomenal presence. I mean right from her first audition you really see an incredibly strong sparkle and there’s a great beauty — not only with physical beauty but there’s a great inner beauty — that comes up in her performance. There’s also just this incredible strength. When I think of Rebekah, I think of a character who for a thousand years has gone toe-to-toe with two of the most dangerous and strong creature in existence: Klaus and Elijah. There’s a great power there and Claire effortlessly brings that power to the role and if we were going to have another actress take on that role, it was definitely something that we needed to have. We looked at a lot of different people and held a lot of different auditions and there are a lot of really great actors but we all unanimously thought that Maisie was just such a great addition to our show and perfect in every way to play this part, which is kind of a sacred part.

How long have you known that you wanted to swap Rebekah out of her body?
MN: This is one of our most beloved characters and we knew pretty early on that we were bringing back Finn and Kol through Esther, who hates vampires and she wouldn’t bring them back in their original bodies. So we knew that the body-swapping storyline would be a big part of the season so we also knew that inevitably, in order of Esther’s plan to have a true threat, somebody would have to get swapped.

What can you tell us about this body that Rebekah is now trapped in?
MN: We have a lot of questions that need to be answered. Who is this person that Rebekah has gone into and what kind of a vessel is she? Is she a human, is she a witch is she something else? And we’ll find out what it will be like for Rebekah to be inside this person and what new powers she might have. Also what Rebekah instincts, character traits and strengths will she have to rely on now that she doesn’t have the power and strength of a vampire? We really have a great opportunity to explore who Rebekah is.

Is it possible that Rebekah will prefer this new body versus her old one?
MN: As we know, from watching Rebekah on The Vampire Dairies and season one of The Originals, she has always longed for the possibility of being mortal and having a family of her own. Is this a case of “Be careful what you wish for” because in order to have a family you have to be mortal but in order to be mortal you’re, by definition, vulnerable. So we’ll be placing Rebekah in situations where she’ll have to rely on a whole different set of skills and it really brings out that great strong, fiery, never-say-die, never give up character that I love so much in Rebekah.

If this body does allow Rebekah to embrace her witch heritage, how do you think she would react to having powers?
MN: We’ve already explored, a little bit, the idea of Kol being a bit of a witch prodigy and he enjoyed being able to practice magic. Then he lost that gift when he became a vampire because obviously vampires can’t be witches. Rebekah too is the daughter of Esther, a very powerful witch, so would Rebekah have had any inclination towards magic? If this body weren’t in fact a witch, would she want to jump out of the body that she is in and go into another body in order to have those powers? Would she be desperate to return to her original body because she knows it would be the best possible means for defending her family and defending Baby Hope? So all of those questions are things that we’re going to explore with this storyline.

The Originals returns to The CW on Jan.19, 2015.
