Entertainment Weekly has included a scene from Season 2 finale Tempus Fugit in their Best of 2015 list. The 'slide to unlock' scene was an absolutely brilliant moment, a stand out in what was arguably the best episode of the season, with a storyline mirroring the show's pilot. EW interviewed the episode's writer, former showrunner Mark Goffman, for some insight into how that moment came about, in the script and Tom's performance.
The moment he did it, we knew it was definitely going to be a moment in this montage. We had him do a number of things with the phone, including tapping it against the table, but it just made sense: If you don’t know what to do with a phone, and it says to slide, you try moving the actual phone.”

EW's isn't the only year end list on which Sleepy Hollow has appeared. Yahoo recently released their list of 23 Best TV Moments of 2015, and the indignities Ichabod suffered at Colonial Times in the Season 3 premiere made theirs. From the mind blowing menu to the giant Franklin bobble-head to Crane's admonition of the staff about the proper placement of their tricorn hats, it was a memorable way to start off the new season.
Remember, Sleepy Hollow is back February 5th on their new day and time - Friday's at 8/7c!
