Sleepy Hollow: The Jersey Devil Comes to Town Tonight



In tonight's episode, a steady stream of ghouls, ghosts and creatures continue to make their way to Sleepy Hollow to do The Hidden One's bidding. This week we get treated to a legendary demon from the Pine Barrens - the Jersey Devil. It is a longstanding myth in New Jersey, that dates back to the 18th century. According the website Weird NJ, which reports on all strange goings-on in the state, this is how the Jersey Devil came to be:

Legend has it that in 1735, a Pines resident known as Mother Leeds found herself pregnant for the thirteenth time. (Leeds is the name of one of New Jersey’s earliest settlers, and many descendants of the Leeds family can still be found throughout NJ to this day.) Mother Leeds was not living a wealthy lifestyle by any means. Her husband was a drunkard who made few efforts to provide for his wife and twelve children. Reaching the point of absolute exasperation upon learning of her thirteenth child, she raised her hands to the heavens and proclaimed “Let this one be a devil!”

Mother Leeds went into labor a few months later, on a tumultuously stormy night, no longer mindful of the curse she had utter previously regarding her unborn child. Her children and husband huddled together in one room of their Leeds Point home while local midwives gathered to deliver the baby in another. By all accounts the birth went routinely, and the thirteenth Leeds child was a seemingly normal baby boy.

Within minutes however, Mother Leeds’s unholy wish of months before began to come to fruition. The baby started to change, and metamorphosed right before her very eyes. Within moments it transformed from a beautiful newborn baby into a hideous creature unlike anything the world had ever seen. The wailing infant began growing at an incredible rate. It sprouted horns from the top of its head and talon-like claws tore through the tips of its fingers. Leathery bat-like wings unfurled from its back, and hair and feathers sprouted all over the child’s body. Its eyes began glowing bright red as they grew larger in the monster’s gnarled and snarling face. The creature savagely attacked its own mother, killing her, then turned its attention to the rest of the horrified onlookers who witnessed its tempestuous transformation. It flew at them, clawing and biting, voicing unearthly shrieks the entire time. It tore the midwives limb from limb, maiming some and killing others.

The monster then knocked down the door to the next room where its own father and siblings cowered in fear and attacked them all, killing as many as it could. Those who survived to tell the tale then watched in horror as the rotten beast sprinted to the chimney and flew up it, destroying it on the way and leaving a pile of rubble in its wake. The creature then made good its escape into the darkness and desolation of the Pine Barrens, where it has lived ever since. To this day the creature, known varyingly as the Leeds Devil and the Jersey Devil, claims the Pines as its own, and terrorizes any who are unfortunate enough to encounter it.

Sleepy Hollow: The Kindred Returns



Tonight, a long lost 'friend' comes back to Sleepy Hollow. When we last saw him, The Kindred was battling two Horsemen of the Apocalypse to protect Abbie, and riding off into the distance leading them away. Fans have been clamoring for his return ever since. What has he been up to all this time? Has he gotten a job? Gone back to school? Followed his bliss? Hopefully those questions will be answered tonight, but from the images that have been released (check the galleries) and this preview clip TVLine posted, it doesn't seem like he's back in town for a happy reunion with Team Witness.

Maya Kazan (@maya_kazan) who plays Zoe Corinth, recently gave several interviews about her stint on the show and what we might expect from her storyline tonight. You can find them on TVInsider, EW and TVLine, but beware because they are ever so slightly spoilery. It was lovely to see from the TVLine interview that she has enjoyed working with Tom so much:

TVLINE | You and Tom Mison seem to have fun on screen. You hadn’t worked together before, right?
I didn’t know him before. We had some friends in common. I just love him. He is a wonderful actor. I think he’s so talented and just one of the nicest people in my acquaintance. Fans of the show fall in love with Crane because he’s such a delightful and charming person, and that’s absolutely true of Tom, as well.

TVLine also posted a quote from Lyndie Greenwood about tonight's episode in their Ask Ausiello column:

Question: Please any news, spoilers, updates on Sleepy Hollow would be greatly appreciated by us Sleepyheads. Thanks in advance. —Justine
Jenny and Crane, who worked together so closely while Abbie was in the catacombs, will still have “little moments” together now that her sister is back in town. “I just think they’re gold,” Lyndie Greenwood tells us. “I love what the writers do with that. You’ll get to see more Jenny-and-Crane stuff, but obviously, we want to get Abbie and Crane back [working together], so that’ll be the focus, hopefully.”
