There were two major major sections to Sleepy Hollow Season 1 Episode 8 - and it was the first time that I found the more interesting story to be that which was focused off of Ichabod and Abbie.
Ichabod and Abbie decided to interrogate the Horseman with the help of his necromancer, Andy Brooks. The result was that the Horseman had details about Ichabod he didn't dream possible.
Meanwhile, Irving was finally/wholly convinced of all that was behind and before him and, at Abbie's urging, he got Jenny and the two of them tried to ward off the damage the Hessians were doing to thwart the work being done with the Horseman.
It was the second story that ended up being the most satisfying to watch.
