Interview: Ichabod is Done Being Capt. Nice Guy

 

 

TVLine has posted a very entertaining, candid interview with Tom about tonight's Season 2 finale. With all that went down in last week's episode -- you know, his wife and his son trying to kill him, his work-wife getting sucked into a time travel vortex -- Ichabod is D O N E. In fact Tom was done too. '“I didn’t want Ichabod to plead with [Katrina],” he says. “I think there’s been so much of that. I got really bored of seeing a weak Ichabod.”' He goes on to talk about the cool callbacks to the pilot in last week's episode and playing 18th century Ichabod.

But no Sleepy Hollow interview with Tom is complete without the inevitable Ichabbie questions and his inevitably cheeky answers:

TVLINE | It goes along with the fact that there have been a lot of lines in the past few episodes reaffirming the Witnesses’ connection and why the way the two of them relate to each other is special.
Yeah, lots. [Laughs]

TVLINE | You can almost see the subtitles underneath: “Stay with us, fans. We’ve got this.”
[Laughs harder] Yeah, exactly. They belong together, whether it’s the 18th century or the 21st century or whatever century. Whether it’s in America or England. Wherever they were destined to meet, they will be together and they will be drawn to each other.

TVLINE | You know, when you say things like that, what people read into it.
Am I ‘shipping?

TVLINE | You are ‘shipping hard.
I have said nothing about romance. Ichabod’s britches are firmly on when I say that. [Laughs] Just because I said they’re drawn together doesn’t mean they’re going to roll around in 18th-century hay together.

He just can't help himself.

Interview: Time Travel and a Very Different Ichabod

Tom had a chat with Marisa Roffman from Give Me My Remote about the Sleepy Hollow finale and he gave her some great insight into what we can expect from Monday's episode. Time travel is always tricky, but it turns out we needn't get anxious about how it will be handled:

"I'll admit, I was worried," Mison acknowledged. "When time travel comes into anything, there's the possibility of it becoming very, very confusing. There's the possibility if you start to try and pick [the story] apart, it will fall to pieces. But then I found out the way around it [with what the writers are doing], and I thought, 'That's brilliant. That's a brilliant way around all the the intricate difficulties of time travel'...I think they dealt with it in a very smart, simple, clean way."

He goes on to say that we'll be seeing a very different Ichabod in the 18th century than the 21st century version we're used to, and how being able to explore that part of the character for longer than just a quick flashback or two was "such a treat." Reading the interview, you get a real sense of how well he has crafted the role, and the nuances he's put into it that may not necessarily be picked up on consciously, but make it such a remarkable performance overall.

Sleepy Hollow: Clips and a Sneak Peek for Monday's Season 2 Finale

 

 

Can you believe it? We are down to the last episode of Sleepy Hollow Season 2. Promo images for the episode are in the galleries and a couple of clips have been posted on line. TVLine has a clip that takes us to what must be the beginning of the episode, where we find roles reversed from the pilot. A second clip from TV Guide is a little more spoilery, with Abbie trying to convince Ichabod of who she is. Both are exclusive clips and not embeddable here, so click through those links to view.

One thing that can be posted here is a fun sneak peek that includes Tom as well as writer and executive producer Mark Goffman talking about the episode:
