Via separate flashbacks, we’ll meet young Stefan and young Caroline.

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.
[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Thursday’s midseason finale of The Vampire Diaries, “Christmas Through Your Eyes.”]
The non-human residents of Mystic Falls got a bit of a Christmas miracle during The Vampire Diaries’ midseason finale: the border that had kept them out of town all season has been destroyed.
Unfortunately for them, that freedom came at the cost of Kai (Christopher Wood) absorbing all of the Travelers’ spell powers and getting a supercharge. And with that supercharge, Kai decided to use his new powers to cloak Elena (Nina Dobrev) and kidnap her … right when she was about to meet with Damon (Ian Somerhalder) to talk out some of their issues.
So what comes next when the show returns? The Vampire Diaries executive producer Caroline Dries spoke withThe Hollywood Reporter to tease Kai’s supercharge, Enzo’s (Michael Malarkey) plan for revenge, Caroline’s (Candice Accola) heartbreaking struggle and more.
What can you say about where the show picks up when it returns in 2015?
It’s pretty much going to be a direct pick up when we come back, even though in our real-life, a month or so has passed. Kai is supercharged now, with the spell that covered an entire town, so he has magic bubbling in his veins. And Jo (Jodi Lyn O’Keefe) is also reunited with her magic, but she’s more of a novice, because she hasn’t done magic in many, many years. She’s not going to be as strong as Kai, so she has her work cut out from her. And she has to reconnect with who she used to be as a witch. So, that’ll be an interesting dynamic to watch. Kai’s sucking up all that magic doesn’t come without consequence for people, but also for him as well; he sucked up a lot of magic, so he’s going to have some growing pains that come along with that.
The sheriff (Marguerite MacIntyre) is probably one of our more interesting storylines that’s happening in Mystic Falls, as she’s dealing with this very human illness. And poor Caroline is trying to do everything in her power to fix her. But it’s one of those things where there’s not really a solution. She’s not going to give up, though. That will actually bond her a little bit closer to Stefan (Paul Wesley), and I’m looking forward to the audience seeing their relationship grow a little bit, too.
Meanwhile, Elena and Damon have a lot of stuff [on the table] — they’ve yet to see each other, still, so they have a lot to talk about when they get the chance.
You touched on Kai’s supercharge, but what will that impact on him be? Will he be struggling physically or emotionally with that surge?
It’s going to be more of a physical working out the kinks sort of thing — in the same way Jo, who is working out her magic, has a working out the kinks [issue]. It’s on two ends of the witch magic spectrum. But he has so much channeling through him, it’s not going to be an [easy] transition for him to because this powerful witch; it’s a lot of magic to harness.
Kai is not fond of Damon, but is there a deeper motivation for taking Elena?
He does have a deeper reason for it. It’s a slightly more selfish reason than revenge. Damon did leave him in the prison world, and he has it out for Damon. But he has a more specific reason he’s keeping Elena for. It has to do with him sucking up all that magic, and it being a lot to handle.
Is there anyone else he’s put under this cloaking spell that we’ve yet to discover?
In that moment, she was his only target, but he does like to use that cloaking spell, let’s put it that way.
There was a hint in the preview for the 2015 episode (above) that Damon realizes Elena’s gone. How will everyone react when they realize she’s disappeared?
It becomes an all-hands on deck situation, for sure. The people who find out about it, definitely, call to arms. And so the question becomes, how do we free Elena from basically the most powerful creature in Mystic Falls, and probably the world … minus, you know, the Originals in New Orleans.
Alaric (Matt Davis) unintentionally set Kai’s power in motion when he opted to not kill him. How will he be dealing with Kai’s new power?
Alaric is going to be stressing out, because the reason he didn’t kill Kai was because Jo said, “Look, I can beat him in a merge.” And what he’s going to come to find out is, oh, this girl I put my faith in? She’s not that great at magic. She hasn’t done magic in a long time. And now she’s going up against this supercharged crazy person who is clearly going to win the merge if Jo doesn’t get her act together. So he’s stressing out. And he wants to believe in her. But at the same time, it’s like, oy, you know? “I hope I made the right choice, because she’s going to die.”
Is he shouldering the responsibility for any of Kai’s future victims? Or is he solely concerned about Jo at this point?
I think he’s just focusing on the Jo of it. I’m trying to remember if that’s a storyline at all … I think Damon will always believe we should have just killed Kai and been done with it, but Alaric is more like, I’m Team Jo, we’re going to do things my way.
Enzo did point out that if you’re going to kill an enemy, you make it fast, and fittingly, he’s now alive as well after Matt’s (Zach Roerig) attempt to kill him got botched … and planning on a great revenge for Stefan. What’s next in his arc?
I can tease that he needs to employ Matt to get what he wants. And he’s going to come at Stefan from an unexpected angle. And, ultimately, he and Matt are going to have an interesting relationship. And it’s going to reveal a couple extra layers of Stefan we haven’t seen before.
Does Matt have the ability to speak out and warn Stefan about what’s going on, or is something going to be preventing him?
He does have that ability, but there’s a cost attached to it.
How much will the emphasis be on Enzo’s revenge storyline versus Kai’s supercharged power when the show returns?
In the one Paul Wesley directed, in episode 11, we’re going to see Enzo make his first move. But that’s kind of our B/C -story, and Kai is our A-story, to put it in writing terms. It’s going to be there right when we come back. And it’ll progress, slowly but surely.
On a sadder note, you touched a bit on Sheriff Forbes’ very human disease. What was the discussion like when the writers opted to give her cancer, versus any of the supernatural deaths or attacks we’ve seen on the show thus far?
That was the main reason we were doing it — it felt fresh, even though we’re 100-some odd episodes in. We’ve never seen someone who has cancer. We’ve never seen these vampires not have a solution — there’s not a spell you can do. There’s not tchotchke they can dig up on an island. What do you do? That’s what we liked about it.
Caroline is so proactive and a go-getter, but this is something so out of her control. What new sides will this bring out in her?
Caroline’s heart, as lovable as she is, she’s a control freak. She’s going to try and take matters in her own hands, only to realize, some things there is no cure for.
That’s going to be rough. On a lighter note, what can fans expect from the characters now that everyone is allowed back in town?
They’re going to be able to go to the Mystic Grill, which has been renovated since it exploded in the finale. (Laughs.) Damon’s going to have his bedroom back, cook dinner in his kitchen, the mundane things they’ve missed. Caroline can go home again and be in her old room, which is a thing she was missing from the get-go. And with her mom being sick, she can actually be by her side and take care of her. So that’s a big thing for her.
Any final teases about what’s in store when the show returns in 2015?
I’m excited about Caroline and Stefan’s relationship evolving as she’s trying to cope with her mom’s illness. I’m excited about the Matt/Enzo storyline — just seeing them on-screen together is fun. We’re ultimately going to get to reveal a bit more about who Enzo is as we get deeper into the season. Damon and Elena are finally going to come face-to-face, which we kind of took from the audience at the end of this episode. They’re going to be able to work out what their deal is, and I’m excited about that.
WARNING – THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS POSSIBLE SPOILERS!! READ ON AT YOUR OWN PERIL!!
If you loved Nathaniel Buzolic as the gleefully devious and evil vampire Kol before Teen Wolf alum Sharman took over as Kol placed in the body of a witch this season. But in tonight’s epic midseason finale, fans will finally get to see Buzolic back as Kol!
The Originals executive producer Michael Narducci revealed some major scoop to E! News on the “jam packed” episode, including everything you could possibly want to know about Buzolic’s big return.
“One of the things that happens in this episode is there is a flashback storyline where we get to see Nathaniel Buzolic back as Kol,” Narducci said. “We get to see what he was up to 100 years ago in New Orleans and what led to his interactions with his siblings and why, when we met him on The Vampire Diaries, he was daggered and in a box.”
According to The Originals boss, Kol had a specific plan in the past that has major ramifications for the present.
“He had an agenda back in 1914 with the witches,” Narducci said. “That definitely informs Kol’s alliance with Davina [Danielle Campbell] now and his feelings towards his siblings. He’s walking a very fine line. He has no love for Esther [Sonja Sohn] and is being controlled and manipulated by her, and he’s always felt, to a certain extent, that he was left out of the ‘always and forever’ vow between Klaus [Joseph Morgan] and Elijah [Daniel Gillies] and Rebekah [Claire Holt]. So he has complex relationships with both sides of this struggle. He has a very interesting role to play in this episode.”
Kol may have shifted his allegiance to his brothers in the last episode, but will he stay loyal in the midseason finale?
“That is the million dollar question,” Narducci hedged.
One reunion that is sure to be tense as hell is the long-awaited reunion between Mikael (Sebastian Roche) and Esther, and it all goes down in tonight’s episode!
“Mikael is definitely going to have an attitude about some of the things that Esther has done, namely the fact that she brought back Finn [Yusuf Gatewood], Kol and Ansel [Lloyd Owen] in the flesh, but certainly didn’t care enough about Mikael to bring him back too,” Narducci teased. “He had to rely on Davina. So when he sees Esther, they have a lot of unfinished business and a lot to discuss.”
But that discussion could lead to a devastating result for Klaus and his siblings.
“Surprisingly, we realize that their drives are not mutually exclusive,” Narducci said. “Mikael has always hated Klaus, and Esther realizes Klaus is the one standing in the way of Elijah and Rebekah possibly accepting her deal, so it might be time for them to make an alliance to get rid of Klaus. It’s a pretty frightening alliance if it were to go forward!”
But you know what the opposite of frightening is? Two parents finally reuniting with their child!
“Klaus, Hayley [Phoebe Tonkin] and Hope’s reunion is really beautiful,” Narducci said. “Our actors did such a great job of playing the complex series of emotions from relief to joy to the tragedy of having been separated to the notion that the threat has not in any way diminished and that this baby is still very much in danger. Esther is desperate for her children to take her bargain and if Esther finds out that Hope is still alive, the child would be in imminent danger. As happy as they are and as joyous as this reunion might be, they know that they need to find a way to join together as a family and stand against their mother. That is what this episode is all about.”
And the bittersweet reunion is also marred by the fact that Elijah is still dealing with negative effects from Esther’s spell.
“He’s really struggling with the revelations of what he did and what he’s kept buried for so many years behind that red door,” Narducci said. “Those poor people in that diner suffered the consequences of that. He was so paranoid that they were a threat to the child so he slaughtered the lot of them, like, ‘Better safe than sorry.’ And Rebekah looks at that and realizes that is not the brother she knows. We’re going to have to deal with what’s going on with Elijah in the coming episodes for sure.”
Hayley’s current plans to marry Jackson (Nathan Parsons) for the benefit of their entire werewolf pack sure isn’t helping Elijah’s current situation, either.
“Before she can marry Jackson, she needs to see her daughter, and the only way for her to eliminate the threat of Esther and her werewolf army is to conduct this ceremony that would form a new pack,” Narducci said. “That would allow her to essentially steal this entire pack of werewolves from the person who is threatening her child. It’s the best thing she could as a mom to protect her baby, but she needs to decide how she feels about Elijah and confront him and see how he feels. We’ll see his reaction in an extremely powerful scene.”
As for Cami (Leah Pipes), now that Esther has prepared her body for Rebekah to jump into it, the “clock is ticking” on her life. Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) and Davina will try to help her, but she’s going to take matters into her own hands.
“Cami is going to confront Finn in what is one of my favorite scenes of the episode,” Narducci said of her plan to save herself from the body swap spell. “You’ll learn his side of the story and why he thinks he’s the hero in this situation. It’s quite frightening and insightful.”
Narducci warns fans to buckle up, because the whole hour is going to majorly shake-up the show at its core.
“It’s a really exciting midseason finale, jam packed with a lot of interesting twists,” Narducci said. “And it really sets up our next run of episodes which are some of my favorite of the series. I’m really excited for the fans to see it!”
