Hello, show! I missed you in all your cracktastic glory!

Franklinstein! The thirty coins of Judas! I am already anticipating more zombified members of the American Revolution.

Also, the Headless Horseman walking around topless, showing off his muscled torso (sans head), was weird.

I am always a little worried because the previews focus so heavily on Ichabod and Henry, so it was particularly nice to get this week's episode, with Abbie and Jenny relationship stuff in addition to more information about both Sheriff Reyes and their mother. I love that you can pass the women-of-color version of the Bechdel test multiple ways in this show! I like Reyes being a hardass, but I hope she's not evil.

Alas, Katrina's role is still pretty boring. At least she can do a bit more now? But it would be nice to see her not in captivity for once. And the show keeps defining her via her relationships with various men, from Henry to Ichabod to Abraham.

Mostly, I would like more episodes like today's, because I would like ALL MILLS SISTERS ALL THE TIME. I love the tiny bit of vulnerability Jenny gets around Abbie as well as how generally kickass Jenny is, and I adore Nicole Beharie's no-nonsense, "Fine, I'll talk about my emotions now but only because I have to now can we get back to the apocalypse," yet always warm Abbie. I've also really been enjoying her scenes with Reyes, which is also why I want Reyes to not be evil... she's much more interesting as an obstacle to our heroes while not being out and out demonic.

And Irving, oh dear. So far, he hasn't gotten too much to do, but I am hoping they bring Amandla Stenberg.

This show, I swear. SO BONKERS.

I too am baffled by Katrina's boringness. At least she got to stab the Horseman of Death in the hand? But mostly I find her yawnworthy, and that's just weird, 'cause it's not like these writers don't understand how to write awesome female characters.

But the fact that Jenny is now in the credits makes me SO HAPPY. Like you, I would love for the show to be ALL MILLS SISTERS ALL THE TIME, with occasional brief breaks for Ichabod vs. the 21st Century and Abbie/Ichabod hugs. And, you know, cracktastic things like chaining up Death in a basement. Hee.
