When Abbie Mills and Ichabod Crane save Katrina Crane from Horseman of Death and his binding ritual, Ichabod cuts the Horseman's axe in half with the Sword of Methuselah and manages to corner the Horseman. Still after Abbie frees Katrina from the bindings and they join Ichabod who is holding the sword on the Horseman, his axe can be seen on the ground in one piece even if it was cut in half earlier.

Ichabod's Dysfunctional Family
17 January 2015 | by XweAponXSee all my reviews

I have to love John Noble's performance as "Henry Parrish" almost as much as his past performances as Denethor in "Lord of the Rings" and Walter Bishop in "Fringe". Whatever he touches becomes magical and we are drawn in to any role, evil or good.

I somehow knew he was "not as he seemed" in the Season One Finale. But in this season, we learn that even Henry has to obey some other entity. Henry is a lot like Walter Bishop, even having a "Lab" of sorts where he dabbles with Alchemy.

From episodes 1 through 11 of this season, we felt as if Henry has been pulling Ichabod and Katrina's strings, and there was not much they could do about it. And Even former Captain Irving, is he destined to become another Horseman?

But no, Frank joins the two witnesses along with Jenny Mills (The Magnificent Lyndie Greenwood) and Hawley (Matt Barr).

But it all comes down to what Henry will do. Is there a spark of goodness in him, or is he hopeless?

As Moloch's Army-from-Purgatory starts digging themselves out of the ground, an all out battle ensues, one with a High Cost. And only one person can wield the only weapon that can harm Moloch, who will it be and who will pay the cost - Or is it "Apocalypse Now?"

This ensemble of characters is the most unlikely lot I have ever seen. When it comes down to it, all men and women regardless of culture have a lot in common. Here we have a man, Ichabod Crane, soldier, formerly British, a man of breeding and values. And then there is Abbie Mills, Cop, would-be-FBI agent, and her sister Jenny, the one who is always in trouble. And what to make of Hawley? Who either loves or does not love Jenny, but won't be tied down to any particular city or woman. Katrina, a witch, a woman of deep secrets, most of which trouble Ichabod Crane. And her doting headless horseman who was Ichabod's best friend Abraham. And Henry who was Jeremy Crane at one time, cursed by the same coven that put Katrina into Purgatory.

It seems so outrageous, but it also gives me hope: That if these disparate people can join together in a bond of fealty, maybe we can too.
