Sleepy Hollow - Episode 2.02 - The Kindred - Promotional Photos (1)_595_slogo

In attendance at the Sleepy Hollow NYCC panel were executive producers Len Wiseman and Mark Goffman, along with stars Orlando Jones (Capt. Frank Irving), Lyndie Greenwood (Jenny Mills) and Sakina Jaffrey as Sheriff Leena Reyes. Thanks to Screenrant.com for the following info from the panel:

-Season 2 will have 18 episodes – Wiseman says “More is tougher,” but they’re super excited.
-Goffman reveals that the the show runs uninterrupted through the end of the year before a big midseason finale; it returns Jan and Feb to finish the run. They’re excited for consistency.
-Jaffrey reveals that she worked hard to get the role – but she didn’t know her character would be seen as the party-pooper.
-Jones jokes that he can’t talk to Jaffrey (his replacement on the show) – in part because she threw his character in jail and made his mother unhappy that he was being depicted as a black guy in prison stereotype.
-The showrunners reveal that they wanted Jaffrey regardless thanks to her role on House of Cards.
-Len Wiseman teases the season 2 arc and the answers behind what turned Ichabod’s son Jeremy (John Nobel) into Moloch’s sin-eating henchman, Henry.
-Goffman and Wiseman inquire how many people saw the season 1 finale and were surprised (pretty much everybody). They promise the same effect for the season 2 finale.
-The moderator reveals that the footage for the panel will be the first half of the newest episode.
-Wiseman talks about how he and other writers all contribute to the creature design; Goffman says they have “creature meetings” every 3 weeks to decide on new creatures and how to adapt them. Lots of money and pre-planning involved – some VFX.
-Jones adds that a lot of the creatures are actually creepy on set (Moloch); Wiseman remarks on the irony that the people in them are so shy and normal when out of the costume or, like, at lunch.
-Jones fields a Q&A question about how the cast embrace these iconic figures and does it throw them to work with them. For Jones it can be a struggle; for Greenwood it’s fun.
-Jones wants to get Moloch pregnant.
-Greenwood reveals that the Abbie/Jenny relationship has gotten better – but the conflict is not done for good.
-The showrunners can’t say how a Supernatural/Sleepy Hollow would work. A fan suggested that Ichabod could watch a Supernatural-style series on TV.
-Jokes are running about Tom Mison’s singing ability; Nicole Beharie’s singing is well-documented.
-Jones shares how much love they get in the actual Sleepy Hollow town (events, gifts from citizens and cops – they even met a real police head who is an African-American woman). Abbie isn’t based on this actual woman, though.
-The cast each recount their favorite anachronistic Ichabod moments – what’s yours? Goffman goofs by talking about a deleted scene… that wasn’t actually deleted. His revelation? “I need to watch this show!”
-Wiseman talks about converting the pied-piper for this show, and how the show itself affords them great opportunity to pull in creatures and ideas the like – or those related to the thematic arc of the episode.
-Jaffrey may have dropped a SPOILER that Abbie and Jenny’s mom will be making an appearance!
Jones talks about getting to actually get off the sidelines and do battle in this episode – for the wrong side.
-We will see an episode where Ichabod learns about karaoke!
-We will also see an Ichabod Yoga scene!
-Things during Q&A get serious when one fans questions how the show depicts mental illness (often for laughs). Goffman says that in upcoming episodes they get more serious about the issue.

Ian Somerhalder dishes on this season of “The Vampire Diaries” and his character Damon. Somerhalder says, “Bonnie and I, my girl – Kat Graham [is] an extraordinary human being…Bonnie and Damon are reliving the same day…and they’re stuck in this place together and it’s really cute…they are such odd bedfellows.”

For five seasons now, fans of The Vampire Diaries have battled it out over whether Elena Gilbert — she of the tousled coffee waves and impish grin — belongs with bad-boy Damon or good-guy Stefan. And now we may have the definite answer from Stefan’s alter ego himself, Paul Wesley. We caught up with Wesley — who is currently on the set of The Vampire Diaries in Atlanta, shooting season six — to discuss the season-six premiere, and he has some bad news for Stelena fans.

When we left Mystic Falls in the season-five finale, things had really imploded. Like, literally.
Yes, everyone had to scatter or die, basically. Stefan can’t go back to Mystic Falls, or he’ll die because of the stuff that happened last season — anybody with supernatural powers will immediately go back to their human form, and then they die how they actually would have died. So for Stefan, those bullet wounds from 1854 would just open and he’d die. Wouldn’t want that.

And the word is that Stefan is not traipsing across existential planes trying to locate Damon.
No. I’m a mechanic. I’m a car mechanic. I don’t know — I think Stefan is just trying to assimilate, and it’s a pretty arbitrary career choice. But he really needs a break.

Okay, this is making me nervous, because it feels like Dexter and the whole lumberjack thing.
Oh, I’ve never seen Dexter. Is it bad?

It’s a bit anticlimactic, actually.
Well, you know, he just needs a break. For five seasons, every time things with Damon end up imploding, it’s Stefan to the rescue. And that’s getting old. So this time, when Julie Plec and I talked about how Stefan spent his summer, she was like, “Looking for Damon, of course.” And I was like, “No!” I said, “Can we try a different approach? Can he bail, for once? Let Damon deal with it.” And Julie really liked that idea. It’s not forever, but it’s his reaction to things. It changes the game.

And so, with Damon stuck in the other realm and Stefan off fixing cars, Elena is without a Salvatore by her side. Whatever will she do?
Um, she’s losing her mind. She can’t handle it. At all.

Elena and the brothers Salvatore have been one of the juiciest love triangles on TV for six seasons. Does it ever get old for you guys?
Yeah. I mean, there are only so many ways you can do it after a certain point. I almost don’t feel like it’s a love triangle anymore. I know it’s advertised as that — and I know that’s how it started. But Elena and Stefan are so platonic at this point that I just don’t really see that ever happening again.
Paul, you’re breaking a lot of Stelena shippers’ hearts right now. Truly.
I mean, never say never. But I just can’t really see it happening, unfortunately. And I hate to say it for those Stelena fans. But it’s just become so platonic.

So what becomes of the lovelorn Stefan?
Well, him and Caroline seem to have a connection. I’d like to see that go down. I’m all for that. So they’re ready to explore that. We’ve just got to get them over that friendship hump, let them get down and dirty, and then deal with the consequences.

Hmmm … would that make things really awkward?
You mean between me and Candice Accola and her fiancé [Fray guitarist Joe King], who’s a good friend of mine?

Are you going to the wedding?
I am! It’s fun. We all hang out. They’re a great couple, I adore them both. But on the show, things won’t be awkward. Yeah, Caroline is Elena’s best friend forever. But I mean, Damon is Stefan’s brother. That wasn’t awkward, right? And I mean, I really feel like Elena and Stefan are really platonic. The only awkward thing is getting Caroline and Stefan through that friend barrier.

I can see people rooting for that. Staroline? Cefan?
I don’t know, but I hope so. I think there’s some chemistry there. And I think Stefan’s ready for a new love. But it will be a while. Right now, the gang’s dispersed, Stefan’s disconnected, and there’s a new guy who’s totally sociopathic in town. Stefan really doesn’t want to have anything to do with it. He’s kind of thrown his hands in the air and doesn’t care.

So we’re back to apathetic Stefan.
Not exactly. But season six is a bit of a reset for him. He’s been through a lot. Damon causes a lot of drama. They’re not in high school anymore, thank God! He’s going into his own head, working with his hands, tuning it all out.

And of course, eventually, he’ll have to go help Damon.
But not for a long time. I kind of wanted to do the antithesis of that this year. I don’t like it when he’s too noble — it’s boring. I like really flawed Stefan. I like when he’s doing something, and he knows it’s wrong, but he has to do it anyway. I like when he’s not particularly heroic. He’s been the hero for so long. I find the flaws to be very interesting. It’s what makes him human.

You’ve got two indies coming up, too, Before I Disappear and Sam and Amira.
IFC will be doing Before I Disappear in November — and it’s a very low-budget New York City dark comedy. It’s about a junkie stuck watching his 12-year-old niece. And I produced it, it went to SXSW and a few other festivals. The character is the opposite of Stefan, a real antihero, an antagonist, and it’s so nice to do something different. I can’t wait for everyone to see it. And I shot Amira and Sam in two weeks — and it’s another real New York indie. It’s about an Iraqi immigrant girl who’s facing deportation and she falls in love with a soldier who’s just returned. My character Charlie is a Wall Street head honcho, a bit of a shark. But he’s funny. And again, so not Stefan. Both of these roles are not the hero, and that was a really nice thing for me to experience, because I’ve been playing the hero for the past five seasons on the show.

Okay, so one last time, just to be clear: Stelena? No more? Not the endgame?
Okay, so maybe it’s still the endgame. But maybe not. I just don’t see how that will happen. She and Damon are such a thing right now — even I’m rooting for them. But it’s unpredictable. Damon’s sort of dead. Elena’s a mess. Caroline’s around, and cute. Things change. We have to let them change! But I don’t know what Julie has up her sleeve. You never know on this show.
