They find the house and soon find themselves trapped with a huge tree/scarecrow monster stalking them. Crane and Mills get separated and Mills has a vision of Crane’s wife giving birth to a son in the house. She tells Crane of her vision and, of course, he is taken aback- unaware that he was a father all this time.
Here we get to see how bad-ass Ichabod Crane can really get. When someone or something threatens his family, he goes mental and nothing will stop him.
Sanctuary is probably Sleepy Hollow’s scariest episode to date and one that most resembles the early instalments of The X-Files. It is also good to see Orlando Jones’ Captain go from sceptic to believing that anything is possible.
Sleepy Hollow episode 9 is a great haunted house episode that has ties with the main story running throughout the series. The show has certainly been a highlight of 2013.
