Previously, on "Sleepy Hollow"

Abbie: Me and my sister Jenny, we're walking home, all of a sudden, there were these four white trees.

And we blacked out.

What happened to my son? The Sisterhood bound together and invoked a hex to stop his heart.

Ichabod, this place I've been trapped in, it's Purgatory.

I will free you from this hell.

We will defeat Moloch, and we will be together again.

My soul doesn't belong to me anymore.

How do I know I can even trust you? - You can't.

I retain what I see with near perfect precision.

You have photographic memory? Irving: I can't let anything happen to Macey.

Daddy - Be gone, Satan! What the hell do you want? How did George Washington's Bible get buried with you? Do you know what's special about it? The answers are in Washington's Bible! This is in Washington's own hand.

Abbie: According to the history books, Washington died December 14th.

Four days before he wrote this.

How is that possible? - That is what we must discover.

Crane (Recorded): Good day.

This is Captain Ichabod Crane, esquire.

If you will be so kind, please leave your name, rank and an address where I may reach you, and I will return this correspondence in a timely manner.

And now what do I press? Pound? What's pound? (Beep) Crane Witness One paging Witness Two.

I've been thinking about this page we found in Washington's Bible.

I made a couple calls to people I know at Quantico.

We can send the page to their carbon dating lab, which will give us a better idea of exactly when it was written.

See you at work.

I am Respectfully, Lieutenant Mills.

There's no way he's getting that message.

(Sighs) (Phone chimes) Well look at you.

"More telescope conception?" (Chuckles) "Store cellophane recession?" (Phone chiming) "Poor telephone reception.

" (Laughs) There you go.

(Beep) Oh (Floorboard creaking) Hi, Abbie.

We need to talk about boundaries.

(Birds chirping) December 18th, 1799.

It's not a birthday, not an anniversary.

This date was important to you, General Washington.

But why? What happened four days after you died? (Phone beeping) (Beep) "On my way.

Colon closed parenthesis.

" Oh.

It's a man's face.

I suppose that's charming.

Oh, my dear General, what is it you want me to see? Washington: Captain Crane.

General Washington.

Welcome back.

Washington: I wish I could tell you what the future holds, Crane.

It is most likely that you will be called upon, to continue this fight when others cannot.

And when that time comes, good will always rise Like Lazarus from his grave.


In John ___ General Washington.

Always elbow-shaking.

What are you doing here, Andy? Came here to ask you something.

If you're here because Moloch wants Washington's Bible He doesn't want the Bible.

He wants a map.

That Bible has instructions on how to get it.

What would Moloch get from a map? It's not what he can get with the map.

It's what you and Crane can use it for.

Moloch is not gonna give up.

He's sending his soldiers after you.

Abbie, if you give me the Bible - Are you kidding me? - Hear me out.

If you can get me that Bible, then I promise you you'll be spared and you'll be awarded a high seat in his New Order.

So if I turn my back on the world and Crane, I'll get a better view of the Apocalypse? Sorry.

No deal.

(Dialing) Please don't risk your life to protect Ichabod Crane.

(Line ringing) Crane.

Come on, pick up.

Crane will give your soul to Moloch it is prophesied.

Crane: Moloch He's coming for your soul.

He says I will deliver it to him.

He will desert you.

Just like your parents.

Just like everyone you have ever loved.

Except me.

No one loves you like I do.

Andy, listen to me No.

No, I don't wannna hear you say it.

Trust me, this is for the best.

(Dialing) (Line ringing) This is Lieutenant Mills (Crack) For the Captain.

Please tell him it's an emergency.

(Handcuffs clanking) (Door opens) So I had a busy morning.

As did I.

Of course ladies first.

For starters, when I call, I need you to pick up.

I believe I would have an easier time navigating my device were it not such a how shall I say this - An antiquated piece of rubbish.

What's wrong with your phone? It's obsolete.

I'm not blaming you, Lieutenant.

It's these telecommunication companies, overwhelming the populace with their ostentatious advertisements.

They're coercing the consumer into purchasing countless "system updates.

" It's an abuse of capitalism and certainly not the vision behind our Laissez-faire market.


And yet You want a new one? You've got one.

Okay, I hear you.

How 'bout this.

You can have my phone for a couple of days.

If you actually use it, I'll get you the same one.

Shall we seal this accord? Not to bury the lede, but Andy Brooks came to my house.

For what purpose? I don't know anymore.

Because he loves me? 'Cause he's trying to manipulate me? He said Moloch is unleashing soldiers on us.

He's been after the Bible because it leads to a map.

A map.

What else? He repeated the same prophecy that Moloch told you.

That you'd give up my soul, that we were destined to turn on each other.


I know.

And yet you don't seem so certain anymore.

It's not you.

Brooks knows about my family, my history.

I think it's just Screwing with my head a little.

So, as I was poring over the Bible, I was thinking of Washington's words to me some months before I Fell on the battlefield.

He referenced the story of Lazarus.

So I reread it in Washington's Bible, searching for clues.

The story of Lazarus is usually 57 verses long.

In this Bible, it's 67.


These ten false verses are likely encoded with a secret message from Washington.

It still feels weird tampering with a Bible.

Thomas Jefferson took a scalpel to his copy of the gospels.

"December 18th, 1799.

" "Instructions from President George Washington" "for Captain Ichabod Crane, esquire.

" "Dear sir, if you're reading this now, then the war has resumed" "and your destiny to bear witness made manifest.

" Washington knew you were a Witness.

One of the many secrets he kept hidden from me.

"Four days ago, I was diagnosed by Dr.

William Thornton" "with a fatal case of" "Croup and quinsy.

" "As the end came, I drafted a plan.

" "I asked that my body be kept in state, preserved by Virginia's winter air" "so that supernatural forces might aid me in a final mission.

" "Four days ago, I died.

" "But through the cursed prayer beads of these occult forces, I was resurrected.

" (Gasps) My God.

You and I have seen a lot of crazy stuff, but zombie George Washington, that takes the cake.

"And so my final mission was to skirt the icy bonds of death" "and resurrect myself.

" "As I existed, then, between the worlds of the living and the dead," "I could bring information from one into the other," "so that I could draft for you" "a map charting the passage from earth to purgatory.

" Abbie: "An indispensable weapon against the evils of war.

" If we can find that map I can free my wife from Purgatory.

Season 1, Episode 12 "The Indispensable Man" Synced by dcdah & Reef Evil could want this map for any number of reasons.

Our priority has to be getting it before they do.

I know you want to free Katrina.

Try not to let that cloud your judgment.

If you promise not to let the inane prophecy offered by our enemy, Mr.

Brooks, cloud yours.

This is about defeating Moloch.

Glad we agree.

Shall we seal this accord? Are there any more clues from the Bible on where this map to Purgatory might be? The index in Washington's letter offers a list of names of people involved with the reanimation.

Alfred Knapp.

Reverend Knapp? We don't have much time.

A warlock allied with Katrina.

He guarded the Horseman's head for two centuries.

Worked out well for him.

This index states that he was present at the resurrection.

The prayer beads they used they must have been his.

Washington's letter said that those beads are cursed.

To imbue religious instruments with such dark forces would be an ungodly act.

Those beads would be full of sin.

If we can find Reverend Knapp's prayer beads, perhaps our Mr.

Parish can read their history and discover what the late Reverend knew of this map.

Let's call in our sin eater.

Man: You gave the order to move your family to a safe house based on a threat to your daughter.

Any idea why a threat to you and your family would murder a cop and a priest? (Gruff, distorted): Deliver Washington's Bible.


Well, did you know that Detective Morales was? Thank you, Detective Nunez.

That'll be all.

Frank I sent you out here.

You're my guy, so, why don't I know what's going on in Sleepy Hollow? I have told you Everything I know.


You've been on my side of the table.

You know I need answers, Frank.

For these murders, for the beheadings, all of it.

Detective Morales - Morales is not the answer.

Then who the hell is? - Evil.

What? Did you just say "evil"? Yeah, Tom, I did.

I was weak.

I failed you.

(Moloch laughing) Moloch: You are weak.

Take me seriously! (Moloch laughing) Please make me your weapon.

I will fight in your army.

I will burn the world! Moloch: Loyalty demands proof.

Find me the map.

(Insects chirping and trilling) (Gasps, groans) (Loud chirping and trilling) (Grunting) No! (Screams) (Gasping) All of the dreams Katrina and I shared can now be made real.

This may not be the future we envisioned, but it will be ours to fashion as we wish.

She is my guiding light.

I love you, Ichabod.

Crane: The guardian of my soul.

And when we are reunited, I will cherish her as never before.

(Phone chimes) Siri: I don't know what that means.

If you like, I can search the web for, "I will cherish her as never before.

" Yolanda was a much better listener.

Searching for "Yolanda.

" - Farewell.

Parish: Mr.

Crane? Mr.


Thank you for coming.

Now where are these prayer beads? Follow me.

If we're correct, these beads will point us to the map's location.

Abbie: According to church records, Knapp asked to be entombed with his body parts intact and his prayer beads around his neck.

Rather well preserved.

Health benefits of being a warlock.

Crane: Remarkable stitching.

An old flame of mine was a seamstress.

She'd be most impressed.

Who did you date, Betsy Ross? - How did you know that? - You serious?! (Groaning) There is sin within this artifact.

The sin of defying God Himself by cheating death.

These beads were indeed used for something (Whispers): Most unnatural.

(Sizzling, groaning) (Gasping) Oh! Mr.

Parish? My God.

There must be a hex on these beads.

Parish: It appears this might be harder than I first imagined.

Crane: These beads are guarded, mostly likely to prevent an intrusion such as this.

Abbie great.

Dead warlock with a security system.

Parish: I hadn't anticipated any kind of resistance.

In fact, I've never felt anything quite like this.

And that concludes our latest adventures in grave-robbing.

I said this wasn't anticipated.

I didn't say it was impossible.

Look at your hand.

That hex hurt you.

We have no idea what other protections there are in place.

We will find another way Mr.


These prayer beads are protecting valuable secrets.

I can feel them trying to escape.

We had to know that finding a map to Purgatory wouldn't be that easy.

But if it helps you to retrieve your wife, and us to win this war, then it is a task that I am ready to embrace.

(Groaning, sizzling) Mr.

Parish! (Gasps, yelling) Crane: Henry! (Gasps) Henry.

I saw Washington come to life.

(Gasps) And Knapp By a shoreline, carrying something.

I'm sorry I couldn't get more.

(Trembling breath) I tried.

I just need a moment.

Let me assist you.

I said, leave me alone! Please.

Abbie: Crane, give him a minute.

(Groans, panting) We shouldn't have let him do that.

Parish is a man capable of making his own decisions.

Maybe we need to rethink everything.



What do you mean, "everything"? As in, maybe this map shouldn't be found.

I realize the dangers, Lieutenant.

Do you? Because I don't.

And I know just as much about this map as you.

I have to believe that Washington left it for me because I am a Witness, so I can free Katrina and end this war.

Then why did Knapp put a hex on the beads so that no one could learn its secrets? Where was the heads up on that? Crane, Henry could have been killed! What are you implying? That in the 200 years that you were underground, the plan changed.

It was a really long time ago.

Who's to say that if we use this map and free Katrina There won't be ramifications beyond our control, beyond what Washington anticipated? If entering Purgatory somehow opens the floodgates - It would be Armageddon.

That is what I am thinking.

Crane, I know how badly you want her back.

There isn't anything I wouldn't do for another hour with my mom, patrol ride with Corbin.

But if the day ever comes where you have to choose between the greater good and Katrina, if it ever comes to that, are you willing to sacrifice her freedom? 'Cause, to me, that's what this whole fight is all about.

What are we willing to do to keep everyone, everything safe? (Panting) (Raspy breathing) (Roaring) Look out! (Gunshot) No! (Screeching) Henry! (Groans) (Hisses) (Screeching) Crane: Moloch sent those creatures to stop us.

You're right, Lieutenant.

This map is more dangerous than perhaps even Washington could have imagined.

We must find it, or this war will be lost.

I can cross "fighting a demon" from my bucket list.

Safe to say That hex was in place for good reason.

Mainly stopping Moloch from gaining any information.

I'm sorry I didn't learn anything of value.

Seems Knapp has taken the map's location to his grave.

Of course.

The masons urge their brethren to take their secrets with them into death.

It's a rite dating back to the pharaohs of Egypt.

And Washington, being a mason, never would have wanted the map far from his remains.

Reverend Knapp would have been ordered to bury the map with Washington.

There are two different grave sites at Mt.

Vernon and a tomb at the Capitol that has never been used.

Two different recorded birthdays, two different wills, three different grave sites.

Decoy chapters in the Bible.

Why not decoy grave sites? Washington would've wanted to be buried near Sleepy Hollow, somewhere Knapp could protect.




In those brief glimpses you read from the beads, did you see anything that might resemble a burial site? Well Knapp was by a shoreline.

He was transporting something.

A body.

Knapp was moving a body.

Many a mickle makes a muckle.

Come again? It's something Washington used to say.

Several small parts add up to a greater whole.

Knapp was ferrying Washington's body to a secret burial site.

Now, there are 21 different islands along the Hudson River.

Then let's figure out which one he went to.

We find Washington's grave his real grave And we shall find the map buried with him.

(Crackling) (Grunting) (Yells) (Yells) (Deep voice): I am your servant! Moloch shall rise.

And all his enemies will fall.

Abbie: This is Bannerman's Island.

Washington used it as a penal colony.

It's a good bet this is where Knapp buried him.

(Phone chiming) Infuriating.

I can't get my maps app to triangulate.

Oh, but I can still receive updates for your so-called "social network.

" And how is it you have 500 friends? I had only seven close companions four of them died.

Those were good odds.

We use the term "friend" more loosely these days.

Aristotle would be most unimpressed.

Yeah, well, he's dead, too.

I pulled this from the archives.

It should help us figure out where this grave might be.


As detailed as these may be, it will not show you the masonic secrets used to hide a crypt's location, especially one as invaluable as Washington's.

All I need is one hour on this island.

I'll find out where the grave and the map are located.

I'm on board with that, but once we get the map, we need to talk about how we should handle it.


We will assay how best to keep it safe.

No matter how dangerous.

Or tempting.

That's what Oppenheimer said about the Manhattan project.

He created the nuclear bomb, a weapon that leveled parts of Japan, and, frankly, could still end the world if the devices got into the wrong hands.

And what about when they were in the right hands? It ended a world war.

(Clears throat) I know this is crazy, but I I need to ask.

In all of your research, have you ever heard of a prophecy in which one of the Witnesses renounces the other? There is a prophecy buried deep in the apocryphon of John, a testament rejected from the Bible.

Uh, "I will give my power to two Witnesses", "and they shall prophesy for 1,260 days.

"But when the Beast comes up from the abyss, "a Witness will surrender a Witness.

And neither will survive.

" So it's true.

Crane might turn on me.

If you believe in prophesy.

You've known this whole time.

As I said, it was rejected by those who transcribed the Bible.

It's impossible to gauge its veracity.

Sometimes a story is just a story, miss Mills.

Evil believes that story.

In fact, they're counting on it.

A word of advice - Prophecies have a nasty way of fulfilling themselves if you let them.

Crane: Over here! That rock in the clearing.

Would that be your masonic marker? Does an alderman have an unwarranted self-regard? I don't even know how to answer that.

You think Washington's buried here.

And how do we get in? Beveled edges facing north.


Abbie: Let me help.

Thank you.

(Both grunting) Right.

Should something be happening? - He said it, not me.

Patience, please.


(Rumbling) Worth the wait? Washington's secret grave.

Where is she? You could have given us some warning, Tom.

You owe him that much.

Frank, they're taking samples.



What the hell is going on? Calm down, Frank.

We needed to take some DNA.

You have no right.

Forensics found DNA on Father Boland's neck.

We need to screen everyone who was at the murder site.

Is there anything new you two would like to tell us? Frank.

You think my 13-year-old handicapped daughter is a suspect? It's a better lead than "evil.

" Look, it's clear you're under a lot of pressure.

Why don't you and your wife take your daughter home for the night.

But, Frank, if forensics gets more We'll come back with a warrant for her arrest.

(Quietly): If you come near my family without one, we will have a problem.



" The Indispensable Man.

A well-known moniker for general Washington.

Looks simple enough.

Let's get the map and get out of here before more of Moloch's minions show up.

No, don't! Forgive me.

I'd wager this pyramid is triggered to ignite upon the sign of any tampering.

Also, Washington isn't in this pyramid too obvious.

Where is he then? "Cincinnatus.

" He was a Roman general, exiled to a life in the farmlands.

When Rome was under threat, the senate retrieved him, made him a dictator.

When the crisis was over, he gave up his power and went back to the farm.

I took Latin in high school.

Cincinnatus was Washington's hero.

He represented the idea that power should only be given to those who want it least.

(Click) (Rumbling) Eureka.

Oh, my.

Abbie: Nice teeth.

Gold, ivory and lead.

They were the envy of every man in Virginia.

Not sure how Martha felt about them.

Do you want me to do it? No, no, no, I'll I'll do it.

Forgive me, old friend.

It's perfect.

I have waited a very long time for this.


Now I can free her.

(Creaking) Mr.


Miss Mills.

(Crashing) Oh, my God.

Brooks What happened to you? (Crackling) (Groans) Andy.

I don't know what Moloch did to you But I know the Andy that I know is in there somewhere.

The man that protected me.

(Deep voice): Give me the map.

The man that loves me, Andy The map! (Yells) (Screams) (Coughs) (Gasping) (Normal voice): Abbie destroy the map.

Moloch needs it in order to win the war.

Release me.

Please, if you've ever Once felt anything (Screams) Miss Mills! Quickly! (Brooks screaming) Are you okay? I believe I am.

That man (Rumbling) We need to get out of here.

We're sealed inside.

There must be another exit.

Uh The inner chamber.

This way.

There must be a way out deeper in the crypt.

Here we go the masonic symbol of ascension.

(Clank) (Rumbling) God bless the freemasons.

Crane, how positive are you about this pyramid being booby-trapped? Well, no, 65.

Lieutenant, shoot the lever.

(Rumbling) (Grunts) Go! Go! (Grunts) (Shouts) (Panting) Henry! I'm fine.

Crane You need to know Before he died, Brooks begged me to destroy that map.

He said Moloch would use it to win the war.

Forget the prophecy.

It's your call.

I keep asking myself the same question, over and over again.

What would I do if this had nothing to do with freeing Katrina? What's the answer? Forgive me, my love.


Crane! If using this map meant betraying your trust that's something I cannot do.

For the world.

For our friendship.

You and I will choose our own destiny.

We have free will.

I choose to forge my fate with you.

I promise you We are going to save her.

I shall hold you to that, Lieutenant.

Irving: I told them to stock the place with your favorite ice cream.

Which is? All of 'em.

(Chuckles) Cynthia: Macey has the highest grades in her class.

You're amazing, bean.

Irving: I'm sorry, you deserve better.

You know, if you would have told me that a year ago, you would still be living in this house.

It was me.

I killed Jason Boland and Devon Jones.

Frank I'm confessing.

You might want to get a witness.

Find me, please! Free me from this place! We will defeat Moloch, and we will be together again.

I swear.

Synced by dcdah & Reef ___ ___ ___ (low rumbling, cracking) ___ (Gasps) (Birds chirping) (Twig snaps) Katrina? Katrina! (Horse whinnying) Good morrow, sir.

Good morrow.


Ooh, uh (Chuckles) Madam, I mistook you for, um, somebody else.

Oh, that's quite all right.

Your coat and tie front shirt such attention to detail, sir.

Did you make them yourself? - Where am I? We are near the headwaters of Lake Champlain.

We've just joined league with the Marquis de Montcalm's mercenary force to repel the 43rd highland regiment.

Of course.

I have not yet awoken from last night's slumber.

Pardon? - This is a dream, madam, and a rather inaccurate one at that.

It was the 42nd regiment, and that event transpired in 1758, well before the war began.

Wow, dude.

"Dude"? It's a reenactment.

Just, you know, relax.

Go with it.

A reenactment? - Uh-huh.

Of a war? (Horn honks) Man: Hey, Phil! For amusement? I get it.

It's your first time.

Uh, you're actually supposed to be in the official outfit.

So what size are you? - You sell clothing.


Well, maybe fate has led me to you after all.

(Phone rings) Oh, you are not supposed to have your cell phone on you.



It's Henry Parish.

I'm sorry to call so early, Ichabod, but there's a matter of some urgency.

I need to see you and miss Mills right away.

It's quite dire.

Jenny: You bought the same exact outfit? So does this mean we can finally give away that ratty coat? Please.

And risk it be worn "ironically" by purveyors of artisanal marmalade who discovered it at a local thrift shop? I thank you, no.

For judge a man not by the wear of what he wears, but by the where and how he wears it.

Abbie: They scheduled Irving's hearing for this morning.

I told Cynthia I'd get down there.

Parish will be here momentarily.

He emphasized the urgency.

Irving just signed a confession to the murders of Devon Jones and Father Boland.

I think that falls under the urgency category, too.

He confessed to protect Macey.

Crane: Yet they are both innocent.

Surely our criminal justice system can account for that.

You're talking to the girl who spent a decade in Tarrytown psychiatric because she told the truth.

(Door slams) Afraid there's no time for pleasantries, my friends.

I believe that on this day, Moloch will seek to unleash hell on earth.

That's one way to enter a room.

This morning I awoke from a terrible dream.

It was a premonition.

I have them on occasions.

In my vision, I saw Moloch surrounded by four white trees, and he was raising something from the earth.

A creature of some kind.

What did the creature look like? - I couldn't see its face.

Only a taloned hand covered in dirt.

And then I saw fragments.

Images like pieces of a puzzle.

A man on a flaming horse, riding against a solar eclipse, a-and a voice said "Come and see.

" Abbie: "And then another horse came forth, of fiery red.

" Its rider was given the power to take peace from the earth.

" Jenny: "And to make men slay each other.

" To him was given a large sword.

" The second of four horsemen.

(Eerie whinnying) War.

Of course.

Moloch's riddle.

"The Saint's name is a sign.

"When you know my meaning, war will take form.

" Is there any chance that this is just a bad dream? I'm afraid not.

The celestial calendar confirms there will be a solar eclipse by day's end today.

It can't be a coincidence.

I'm afraid you've lost me.

Crane: Today marks the anniversary of the day they first encountered Moloch in the forest.

There was an eclipse that day, too.

Parish: Then I fear that miss Mills is correct.

This is more than mere coincidence.

My friends, it appears that war is coming to Sleepy Hollow Today.

Woman: Lieutenant Mills? I'm sorry, I saw you come in.

Cynthia said to meet her here.

There's been a last-minute change in venue.

Wait, Irving's gone already? They transferred him upstate.

He left this for you.

Thank you.

"Check the marked pages.

" (Door creaks open) Ah, Lieutenant, perfect timing.

You're going to like this.

You found something? Don't get excited.

You haven't heard the plan yet.

A plan to stop the second Horseman? According to hidden messages encoded within Washington's Bible, a binding spell cast upon the soil from which the second Horseman will emerge may prevent him from entering this realm.


When am I gonna ever stop being surprised? Unfortunately, all the witches we've encountered are now deceased.

With the exception, of course, of Ichabod's wife.

Who's in Purgatory, and we burned the only existing map.

Wait for it.

(Sighs) The unexpected blessings of an eidetic memory.

I was able to redraw the map.

You lied.

A half-truth.

A half-truth is a whole lie.

All right, I lied.

Yet I had no intention of using this map without your consent, but Katrina is the only one who can stop the second Horseman.

Show me.

Admit it, you appreciate me a little.



The map is a cross section of ley lines.

Naturally forming pathways said to be of historical and sometimes spiritual significance.

Let me guess - There's a ley line right here in Sleepy Hollow.

They converge on what appears to be a dirt road that cuts through forestland.

Now, recall, if you will, the words of general Washington.

Jenny: Which one? Zombie Washington or Father of the Free World Washington? The General said the battle between good and evil "would be won or lost on a township "that took its name from the hallowed ground "on which it lay, a doorway between worlds.

" He was referring to this.

This spot here, the gateway to Purgatory.

And my way back to Katrina.

What about the rest of Moloch's riddle? The Saint's name? Irving may have gotten us a lead with that.

Since all of this began with Corbin and Reverend Knapp, he pulled Knapp's things from the impound and found this old datebook logging meeting between the two of them.



They were working together? Corbin never told me.

Corbin doesn't mention his name in any of the hard files, but he's got the audio logs.

I'm gonna need you to start digging.

There are hundreds of hours of tapes.

I'll never get through all of them in time.

It's the only lead that we have; Whatever they were on to, it's in there somewhere.

(Quietly): Can I talk to you for a second? You're really gonna do this? Just walk into Purgatory so Crane can get his wife back? Did I miss a backup plan? Maybe you forgot Moloch guards Purgatory.

Oh, really? Was that his name? Moloch, who ripped our live in half, I forgot all about it.

Thanks for reminding me.

Who said Crane would hand over your soul, and you're gonna make it easy for him.

I want to stop running from this bastard, Jenny.

Don't you? Aren't you tired of being afraid? I don't want to be a victim anymore.

I want to face him.

For me.

It's for us.

Do you remember the Dollhouse we found in the dumpster behind our house when we were little? Dollhouse.

(Chuckles) Dad would be drunk, mom talking to the silverware.

We'd go upstairs, lock the door and play with it, and you said "we're okay.

"Just pretend.

"Pretend this is our house.

This is where we'll always be safe.

" I believed you.

And then you went away.

Jenny I don't want to lose you again.

I can't.

Listen to me.

It's taken me a while to come to terms with what happened to us.

To me, what it really means.

That you're a Witness.

With a capital "W.

" I'm not gonna lose you again.

I need you to have faith.

I have more than faith.

I'm a mental patient with a gun.

(Chuckles) If you're not back by sunset, I will come hunt you down.

Come back to me.

Parish: Can you feel it? The air feels somehow different here.

GPS says we're close.

Now's probably a good time to ask how we're gonna find Katrina once we get in there.

Your ancestors' church - Grace and Joseph.

Katrina said she visits the "echo" of that church every day.

And I light a candle in memoriam and I pray for his soul.

Crane: On the bright side, at least we'll get to experience life after death within our lifetime.

That is a pretty dark bright side.

You must not take this lightly.

Purgatory is a maze of temptation.

If you are offered food or drink, you must not accept it.

The reality you're presented will seem entirely true.

And every part of you will want to embrace it, but if you do, you'll be trapped there for eternity Imprisoned in Purgatory forever.

(GPS beeping rapidly) This is where the lines converge.

Washington inscribed this incantation here, meant to summon a doorway to Purgatory.

And when you've found Katrina, repeat the words and the doorway will reopen, returning you here.

We gotta move.

Henry Are you okay? I've come to care deeply about you both.

You gave me a reason to hope again.

And now I implore you to cling to that hope.

Remember your link with each other.

Purgatory will try to make you forget it, but hold onto each other in your hearts, and nothing can separate you.

You were chosen for this moment.

I look forward to meeting your wife.

And I, to introducing you.

Both: We, the penitent, with humble heart upon this threshold do summon thee - In mirror'd form appear, a gateway to the world between worlds.

(Low rumbling, cracking) (Birds chirping outside) Crane? August: Abbie, eh, you're awake.

How you feeling, kid? - Brooks: Hey, Abbie.

How are you both here? You're dead.

Dead? Shoot, why doesn't anybody ever tell me these things? (Chuckles) Where in the hell is Crane? - What are you talking about? - Ichabod Crane! Okay, honey, honey, you need to take it easy.

Mm! Look, you got hit in the head pretty hard.

You got a concussion.

Sit down.

Take it easy.

The doctor said the dizziness, memory loss, hallucinations, that's all normal side effects after you wake up.

They furloughed you from training so you could recover here.

Furlough? From Quantico.

FBI academy? You got knocked out in a live fire exercise.

You remember any of it? I was at the academy? Yeah.

Top of your class.


(Chuckles) You left us all in the dust.

This guy kicks my ass every week 'cause he misses you so much.

You just need to take it easy.

They said that your place is secure.

You're gonna graduate with your pick of assignments.

Right now, you just need to rest, okay? Mm.

Ah, there's my girl.


Mm I miss you so much.

(Sighs) I'm supposed to remember something.

Lieutenant? (Piano playing light melody in distance) (People conversing in distance) (Piano playing light melody) Father.

Welcome, son.

After years of service to his Majesty's army abroad, you've returned home a hero to your country.

Cornwallis himself said the battle of Yorktown could not have been won without your decisive command! The British lost.

(All laugh) Still a little light-headed, I see.

No doubt.

I don't understand.

You've been granted a full professorship with all its attendant perquisites.

Because of you, the Crane name will live on in these hallowed halls, a chain of unbroken purpose.

Have you nothing to say? When I turned against England You swore you'd never speak to me again.

You disavowed me as your son.

(Chuckles) Ichabod, you you rum-beggar.

Even as a boy, your imagination always skewed toward the Greek tragedies! You are And always will be A child after my own heart.

Come to me.

I love you, my boy.

And now, libation! August.

Apple pie a la mode.

You got about five minutes before that hot, crispy crust Comes together with the ice cream and melts into a warm, soupy mess.

(Chuckles) You know, the first time I took you to that diner, I knew you were destined for something great, that you were gonna matter, and I was gonna play a part somehow.

I'm so damn proud of you.

Ah, but first, pie, right? Yeah! Hey! Whoa, whoa, whoa! (All laugh) Oh, damn, boss, you missed your calling.


Eat up, kid.

(All chuckle) Just like old times, huh? I never thought I'd say this, not in a million years, but I just want to go back to the way it was before.

I'm afraid neither of us can.

This isn't real.

This isn't real.

Where you do you think you're going, Abbie? You're not Corbin.

Abbie, you sit back down at this table and eat the damn pie, you hear me?! Abbie, it hurts! Please don't let him take my soul! Don't leave me here, kid.

Please! (Shrieks) I once offered that when you have your own child, remember He'll follow your example more than your advice.

Which is why I'm so deeply proud to say and to see You've done both.


I used to imagine I'd be a Professor in my own right.

Yet upheld by his pride for me.

This is a dream.

This is a dream.

It's true, then.

You choose to forsake all I've given you? To turn your back on your heritage, on your future On me?! This is not my future.

You are not my father.

Drink what I offer, or you will be sent to Coventry - forgotten, disowned, a Crane no longer! I've felt the pain of your shunning once before, and I loved you nonetheless.

Yet my answer remains No.

(Screams) August (On tape): Still no evidence found for that fire on Milford.

Probably nothing.

March 21st, found a dead body with a strange tattoo on the back of his head.

It's definitely some kind of symbol, but nothing I've ever seen before.

Found an old pamphlet from an antiques dealer in town named Adams circa 1781.

It talks about a sermon at a church named trinity outside of town.

Now, this church has been abandoned for over a hundred years.

When I called Reverend Knapp to find out what he knew about it, he insisted that we meet in person.

I think the answer might be somewhere in the ruins of this old church.

(Discordant chords playing on piano) (Discordant chords continue) (Deep voice murmuring) (Discordant chords continue) (Sobbing) (Whimpering) Excuse me.

Miss? (Screams) (Sobbing) (Gasps) Crane.

This isn't real.

Our surroundings may an illusion, yet I assure you I am the genuine article.

Yet what assurance do I have that you are as well? After we trapped the Horseman, what did I teach you? It served a purpose after all.

I guess we survived our first test.



When I remembered you, I saw this world for what it truly is.


Parish said our link to each other was the key.

And now we must find Katrina.

I recognize these woods.

It's where I first found Katrina.

(Moaning) (Distant screaming) What the hell? A form of hell, it would seem.

Lost souls Searching for salvation.

Katrina: Ichabod! No, no, no! I begged you never to return here.

What do you know of the secrets of Washington's Bible? Only that he wanted to ensure that it found its way with you.

Among its revelations, it holds a map, allowing us to summon a doorway to and from this place.

Now, the second Horseman will ride into the mortal realm this very day And you can stop him.

You'll finally be free from this place.

We're gonna bring you home.

Oh, no, I can't.

Abbie: Sure you can.

We'll help you pack.

No soul can leave this place without being granted forgiveness.

To leave without it It would break down the walls between the worlds.

Abbie: I can't accept that.

We didn't come this far to get dinged by some metaphysical technicality.

We're not leaving without you.

With war's arrival, our destruction is assured either way.

What are you not saying? There's no time for indecision, my love.

There is An alternative.

One that requires a sacrifice of great cost, one I cannot ask.

Spill it.

My soul can leave this realm But only if another were to take my place.

Katrina: Please, I beg you both, leave before none of us can.

Crane: If one of us is to remain here in order to set you free It shall be me.

No It's me.

That is not an option.

I have to face him, Crane.


I can't keep running away.

I won't.

Lieutenant I'm not asking for your permission.

You did not ask me for mine when you decided to end your life before you knew that Parish could separate you from the Horseman.

And then you very wisely convinced me there is always another way.

This is the only way! We were chosen for this.

To sacrifice ourselves so that humanity can endure, so that people can choose their destiny.

It's my turn, Ichabod.

Moloch warned that I would deliver you to him, and here we are.

If we do this, his prophecy will be fulfilled.

(Distant snarling) We are out of time.

This amulet was bound by the Sisterhood of the Radiant Heart.

It will protect you from Moloch.

I will not allow you to remain here for long.

Once we've stopped war's arrival, I will return to set you free.

I'm counting on it.

I swear to you, for as long as I can draw breath Our work is not done.

You will come back for me.

That, I know.

Remember our bond.

I'll come back for you.

(Masonry splintering, falling) (Snarling) Have faith.

(Crashing) Go! Go! Repeat these words after me.

We, the penitent, with humble heart We, the penitent, with humble heart upon this threshold do summon thee - upon this threshold do summon thee - In mirror'd form appear In mirror'd form appear a gateway to the world between worlds.

a gateway to the world between worlds.

Parish: Ichabod.

Where is Abigail? Katrina could not be freed Unless another soul assumed her place.

Moloch's prophecy.

I will be back for her.

(Voices whispering) (Shrieking) You son of a bitch.

It's just you and me now.

Now You are mine.

I was never yours And I never will be.

(Roaring) (Sizzling) Katrina: Ichabod.

(Breathing hard) Ichabod! Is this real? - Am I truly here? - Yes, my love.

(Sobs) Excuse me.

My name is Henry Parish.

It's A pleasure to make your acquaintance, Mrs.


You're the Sin Eater.

We must hurry.

The eclipse is near.

You said you foresaw Moloch pull a creature from the ground in these woods.

Can you find the location? A path finding spell should guide us to our destination.

My power's weakened.

It's been centuries since I used it here.

Ah Northeast.

That is where we must go.

I married a witch.

(Laughs) How cool.

It is a figure of speech, you'll learn.


Okay, old man, I'm here.

What do you want me to find? Katrina: We're here.

I sense the presence of a great evil.

She's right.


Just as they were in my vision.

And in mine.

This is where the second Horseman will emerge.

Corbin: My dig into the church's history indicates it changed owners over the course of two centuries and was renamed several times before it was eventually abandoned.

But its last recorded title seems to have disappeared from the county files altogether.


Waste of time.

I'm starting to believe there's no such thing as a coincidence around here.

Why would someone want to hide an abandoned church's name? (Clanking) Abbie: You've reached Lieutenant Mills.

Please leave a message.

(Beeps) Abbie, it's me.

God, I hope you're okay.

I figured out Moloch's warning - "The Saint's name is a sign.

" He meant it literally.

So whatever you do, you can't (Screams) (Tires screech) (Horse neighs) ___ Hey.

Come in.

We're having a tea party.

Where am I? The place we've always felt most safe.

Moloch can't get to you in here.

There's a reason you can't remember what happened to you that day in the woods.

After we saw him rise up from behind the trees.

We blacked out.


We saw more.

Much more.

I don't understand.

The reason you can't remember what happened next is because we're your memory.

Moloch took us out of your head.

You and Jenny both.

What do you mean he took you out of my head? To make you forget the truth.

That's why we've been locked away here since that day.

So you wouldn't find us.

The eclipse is nearly complete.

Soon the second Horseman will rise.

Something's wrong.

The binding spell isn't working.

What do you mean? This ground, I feel nothing beneath it.

If the second Horseman was supposed to be here It's gone.

It's here.

I assure you.

Do you know the etymology of the word - "Apocalypse"? - To disclose or reveal.

That time Has come.

Henry? (Grunting) (Gasping) - Stop! Leave her be, damn you! - You're in no position to make demands.

I suggest you stop struggling.

Your power is nothing compared to mine.

I trusted you! You needed faith, my dear Ichabod, and I gave it to you, both of you in your desire to be reunited.

And to Abigail, who so desperately needs to believe there's a purpose to her pain.

See, faith is a pillar of human nature.

The belief that all will end well if we just cling onto it with all our might.

And it is what blinds us to what's right in front of us all along.

It was you who appeared to me in Purgatory.

Of course it was.

I planted the simple seed in your fertile mind.

The first glimmer of hope in over two centuries.

The sin eater.

It was you that brought us together.

All I had to do was play my part.

For so long, I've hoped for this day.

To find the reason for what I've been given.

The reason is you.

I gave you the answer so many times.

I practically spelled it out for you.

Parish: A good puzzle misleads you.

It sends you in one direction, fools you into thinking you know what's going on.

But once you've discovered the trick, you see that there's often a hidden meaning.

Who are you? (Sighs) And still you see so little.

Don't you know? Can't you guess? An emissary of Moloch? Oh, I'm much more than that.

Your binding spell had no effect Because there was nothing to bind.

The second Horseman was unearthed over a decade ago on this very day under the darkening sun.

And as Moloch prophesied, he has waited all this time to take form.

We saw Moloch appear from behind the trees.

It wasn't an accident that he was in the forest that day.

He came for a reason.

Just like we were sent there to stop him.

What do you mean we were "sent there"? Why was Moloch in the woods? I need to know.

What did I see? Katrina: It's you.

You are the second Horseman.

Just like Abraham once was a mortal man before he became death.

Only half mortal.

I am After all What you made me.


And Father.


Jeremy? You died.

Murdered by my mother's own coven.

Condemned As an orphaned, wayward warlock, and left to whither in a plain, pine box.

Yet my blood Our blood (Ground rumbling) was strong enough to breath life back into my lungs.

Just as it gave my beloved golem life when I was a child.

Your son's blood is your blood.

You knew my blood would destroy it.

(Grunting) (Bellowing screams) And yet you allowed me to kill it.

Sometimes those we love must be sacrificed on the altar of a higher purpose.

You survived the death hex.

Death would have been a merciful gift compared with what followed.

For two centuries, I weakened in this dark prison.

Feeding on the vines that crept in along side of me.

Crying out to the pitiless God that put me there.

And to the two who abandoned me to eternal suffering.

Then after two centuries, I heard a voice.

The voice of my true Father offering salvation.

Jeremy Moloch is not your father.

He is a prince of lies.

He came And took me out of the earth.

God sent a Witness to try and stop me, but she was not yet strong enough.

We defeated her then and we have defeated her now! I have to find a way out of here.

I need to help them.

It's too late.

The doorway's closed.

I don't think that you understand.

I have to find a way home.

This is your home now.

This is your home.

You invented an entire family history.

Even your name.

No, no, no.

Not my name.

That was given to me by God's grace.

The very church where you abandoned me as a child was the first place I saw upon my resurrection.

So I took the Saint's name to spite him.

Crane: Jeremy, listen to me, I beg you.

We are all children in the absence of our parents.

Believe me, I know this to be true.

You know nothing! Every choice that I made, I made it to protect you.

I spent two centuries under the earth for your choices! And she spent two centuries in Purgatory suffering the consequences! (Chuckles) Oh look.

This is our first family spat.

You cannot fathom how meaningless your words are to me.

Now that the two Witnesses are separated, there is nothing to stop us breaking the second seal.

And fulfilling a promise made long ago to an old friend.

(Horse neighs) She's finally yours, Abraham.

No, no! Pleasant dreams.

Don't! Katrina! (Grunting) No! No! Katrina! (Yells) (Grunts) Now you'll know what it's like to lose faith.

When it's gone, you have nothing.

And when you have nothing, there's nothing holding you back from what you're capable of.

Behold the second seal! Don't! (Thunder crashes) War isn't coming to Sleepy Hollow.

It's been waiting all along.

And now It begins.

Good-bye, Father.

No! No! No!
