EW chatted with Mark Goffman, the supernatural dramedy’s showrunner, about season 2 and specifically how fans have been responding to it. Goffman’s main takeaway? “If people just trust us—if you keep watching, things will change in a way that you won’t expect.”

There’s been a lot of criticism this year, some of it by me. What’s your response to the fan response?
Sure. You know, we started this season really early. We started in February, so we’d [completed] the first nine episodes before we’d started airing. And I actually love that we have a very honest relationship with our viewers. We cultivated that in season 1; there’s a real dialogue going on. To us, it’s actually a sign of how much people care, and how passionate they are that they’re so willing to be so vocal about how they feel. And we welcome that kind of feedback and actually engage in that dialogue.

But you have to understand—every show is a living, breathing entity, and it’s growing, and it’s constantly evolving. Last season we were 13 episodes; this season we went to 18. So we’re growing. We’ve done some things differently this year; we have new cast; we have tried some different storytelling. We take a lot of really big swings on this show. Some of those work really well—and we’re adjusting and evolving as the season goes.
Do you think if you’d still been in production after season 2 had premiered—and you started hearing the criticism—you would have changed its direction?
The exciting thing for us is that everything changes at the season finale. And that was always by design. So look, we’ve definitely—every show I’ve ever been on, as you’re writing and you’re learning what’s working and what you can do differently, that’s just part of the evolution of a show. I guess what I would ask everyone is just, I hope they’ll trust us as they did in season 1. We have a plan that I think is really exciting, and as we get to our midseason finale, things will change dramatically.

Fans have a certain expectation from last season of what the show was; this year, some episodes are going to be real fan favorites, and others are more for casual viewers. I think that that’s part of the fun and the thrill of doing this show, is anything can happen. You pointed out that there’s some repetition—in 18 episodes, you know, our mythology deals with a man who’s from 250 years ago, we have revisionist revolutionary history, we have demons. We have so many elements that we just wanted to make sure that everyone was able to follow along the way. And it’s something we’re also adjusting as we see it. But our goal was just to make sure that everybody was able to follow and stay on board.

So do you think the criticisms people have been making—about Abbie being sidelined, for example—have been premature?
Well, it sounded like a lot of people really responded to Monday night’s episode, with the Mills sisters, and we loved doing that. That was an episode we had planned to do very early in the season. We’re excited to tell a lot more stories about both Jenny and Abbie.

Have you clicked through the “Abbie Mills deserves better” hashtag?
Of course. We look at everything. This show, it was really built for fans. So we’re very engaged in the social media atmosphere. Obviously it’s more fun when everybody is telling you that everything’s perfect, but I don’t know if that’s ever the case. We have a plan we put together, a really fun season arc, and when we get to next Monday, things are going to be thrown into flux in a way that I think is really exciting—leading to a whole new trajectory for the back half of the season.

I know Katrina’s been kind of a sticking point for a lot of people this year—what are your future plans for her?
Yeah. What are the future plans for Katrina? Well, that’s a big question—that’s one that’s probably been the most talked about. We like to surprise on this show, and I think we will continue to. There are a couple of episodes coming up where you think one thing is happening, and she’ll be featured, and then something completely different will—so nothing is as it seems.

So, fewer damsel in distress stories?
[laughs] That was never our intention. She’s an incredibly strong character, and she has, I think, a very storied history, being both a powerful witch and a spy. We have a great episode coming up in which we learn about her history with the Salem witch trials. Not that she was involved, but her lineage was. That’ll bring her into a whole new light.

So we’ll get to see her do some cool magic?
I think we’re going to see her do a lot of things that we don’t expect. But again, keep in mind, these are episodes that were shot long before—just to give you an example, I’m writing the season finale right now. So the things that have really started to come up are things that have happened in the last two weeks, and we’re already writing the season finale of the show. But that said, I think that we have some really fun episodes coming up. We’re trying to give each character on the show their due.

Is there anything you’d do differently, if you could go back?
Oh, gosh. Everything I’ve ever worked on, I want to…you know, the challenge in television is the deadlines and the schedules. From a creative point of view, you always want to do more, bigger, better.

Anything specific?
Not that I can think of. It’s an epic show with a lot of moving parts. We put a lot of time into our creature work, we put a lot of time into the period work, into the research and the history and putting fun and different twists on American history. All of that comes together in a crazy mashup, a tone that’s vascillating between humor and horror and action-adventure—it’s a lot of pieces. We take big swings, and there are a few of them where definitely… I would like to keep swinging.

We’ve got some breaking news, Sleepy Heads! This week Johnathon Schaech (“That Thing You Do”) took to Twitter to voice his excitement as a guest star on “Sleepy Hollow.” He started with subtle clues: his character’s name (Solomon), a photo of swashbuckling costume pants, rocker long locks and many thanks to everyone at “Sleepy Hollow.” He specifically enjoyed working with Katia Winter, which couldn’t help but make one wonder if Katrina and Solomon share a bewitching history.

Thankfully, Schaech graciously replied to our inquiry with this telling teaser: “Salem witch trials!!!” Yay! Surely there will be some clever twistory involving the infamous Salem Witch Trials and we can’t wait to find out.

On November 18 “Sleepy Hollow” writer, Albert Kim, tweeted a script teaser revealing the title of episode 15, “Spellcaster,” which they are currently filming. The following day he also tweeted a photo of John Noble on set, so we know that no matter what happens in the fall finale, Henry is still sticking around. All we can do for now is speculate, so let’s get to it!

We already know Katrina had been covertly working with her coven, The Sisterhood of the Radiant Heart. Her coven was made of both witches and warlocks, like the poor priest who lost his head in the series premiere. So the big question is whether or not Solomon is Katrina’s ally or enemy.

Solomon could be the titular “spellcaster.” We guess a spellcaster is some kind of super skilled warlock or witch. For all we know, Katrina could be the spellcaster. Given Schaech’s screen time with Winter, Solomon could be working with Katrina to fight evil. Perhaps he left a lasting impression, one that merits a few flashbacks and reveals helpful information for future supernatural cases. Maybe this fearless warlock sacrificed himself during the Salem Witch Trials to help Katrina escape and fulfill her destiny. On the other hand…

Solomon could also be a bad guy. He could have practiced dark magic. He might have served Moloch as a spellcaster. Or he was a civilian who fought to vanquish all witches during the Salem Witch Trials. Solomon could even be another one of Moloch and Henry’s evil-doers brought back to torment the Cranes. As we’ve seen this season, the Cranes and Mills are relentlessly haunted by their pasts. Let’s face it, anything is possible on “Sleepy Hollow.”

Much of the “Spellcaster” speculation relies on the twistory behind the true purpose of the Salem Witch Trials. Did the trials begin to eliminate the threat of evil covens? Did Moloch want to rid the world of witches who practiced light magic? Was Katrina barely saved from the fiery stake? Will Solomon be a recurring character or does he perish during the trials?
