    Yesterday I posted the recap of the first-part of Sleepy Hollow's season finale, &#8220;The Indispensable Man.&#8221;  
Now my recap of the second-part, &#8220;Bad Blood,&#8221; is up at HDJM!  A snippet:

Jenny pulls Abbie aside, worried that she&#8217;ll lose her sister in this fight against Moloch.  He already &#8220;ripped our lives in half&#8221; when they were kids.  But Abbie wants to fight him: &#8220;for me &#8212;it&#8217;s for us,&#8221; she asserts.  Together they remember their dollhouse &#8220;found it in the dumpster behind our house when we were little.&#8221;  *clutches heart*  While they played with it they would pretend, even though their father was an alcoholic and their mother mentally unstable, that they had a place where they could be together and safe.  Oh my god.  Excuse me while I go weep in the corner.
"I don&#8217;t want to lose you again," Jenny says, fearing Ichabod will hand Abbie over.  Abbie promises she&#8217;ll return, saying, "I need you to have faith."  "I have more than faith; I&#8217;m a mental patient with a gun," Jenny reminds her.  Gah, you two broken but incredibly strong women!  I have to say, their troubled but blossoming relationship just may be my absolute favorite thing about Sleepy Hollow.  &#8221;Come back to me,&#8221; Jenny whispers as they hug.  

Oh my god, come talk to me about the season finale of Sleepy Hollow 1.13 - Bad Blood and check out my recap over at HDJM!

    Jenny pulls Abbie aside, worried that she’ll lose her sister in this fight against Moloch.  He already “ripped our lives in half” when they were kids.  But Abbie wants to fight him: “for me —it’s for us,” she asserts.  Together they remember their dollhouse “found it in the dumpster behind our house when we were little.”  *clutches heart*  While they played with it they would pretend, even though their father was an alcoholic and their mother mentally unstable, that they had a place where they could be together and safe.  Oh my god.  Excuse me while I go weep in the corner.

    Just posted the first recap of two for last night&#8217;s two-part Sleepy Hollow season finale!  Check it out to read about Ichabod &amp; Abbie searching for an otherworldly map while Captain Irving faces tough questions about his daughter.  A snippet:
While Ichabod realizes a &#8220;colon closed parenthesis&#8221; means &#8220;a man&#8217;s face,&#8221; over at the Cabin, Abbie has handcuffed Andy to the radiator and learned Moloch is searching for a map.  If Abbie promises to turn it in, &#8220;I&#8217;ll get a better view of the apocalypse,&#8221; she says sardonically.  Andy plays several trump cards: he reminds Abbie of the prophesy Ichabod learned saying he&#8217;ll desert her in the end, and drops in a mention how everyone she ever loved has abandoned her.  &#8221;No one loves you like I do,&#8221; he argues.  Yeah, all of that seems super-duper loving.
and

Henry suffers extreme pain, but manages to see two visions: Washington coming back to life, and Knapp on a boat by a shoreline, transporting something.  He takes a moment to recover from eating the mother lode of sin &#8212; because &#8220;defying god himself and cheating death&#8221; totally blacks out all the squares on your Trespasses Against God Bingo Card.

When she hears Jenny plans to steal the lantern, Abbie worries her sister will go back to prison.  &#8221;Which is why I&#8217;m going to steal it,&#8221; Abbie concludes.  &#8221;Guess those social workers were right.  I really am a bad influence,&#8221; Jenny says, sounding pleased.  Sisters!  Sisters!  There were never such devoted supernaturally imperiled and badass sisters!

My recap of The Time of the Doctor is up at HDJM.  A snippet pour vous:

A wild TARDIS appears!  It’s the TARDIS returning to Trenzalore — “where have you been for 300 years?” the Doctor asks.  Clara clings to the outside; she’s traveled in the Time Vortex, like Captain Jack Harkness and the Doctor before her (now there’s an elite little club).
“No wonder she’s [the TARDIS is] late, dragging you around,” grumps the Doctor, while Clara accuses him of tricking her.  He’s furious!  She’s not talking to him!  And of course they giggle and hug a moment later, because there are no real consequences for things with the Eleventh Doctor.  I mean, how is Clara’s hair not FRIGHT WHITE by now?  The Time Vortex, seriously?

    My recap for Doctor Who 7.special- The Day of the Doctor is up!  Let&#8217;s have a snippet:

Back at the National Gallery, the Eleventh Doctor examines stone dust on the floor, saying, “In 1200 years, I’ve never stepped in anything that wasn’t” important.  What about linty gum, huh?  “Oh, are you science-y?” he asks enthusiastically of Osgood, sending her off to make reports and graphs and diagrams.  Poor Osgood nearly passes out with her fangirling, as those wacky hysterical fangirls OBVIOUSLY ALL DO; haha, we get it, Moffat, you don’t think so much of our self-possession!

    Simply watching Adventure Time is often enough to make us hungry for sweets, but now we have an actual edible Candy Kingdom to tantalize our tastebuds. This mouthwateringly awesome Gingerbread Candy Kingdom was made by Redditor IHaveAFluffyCat (who actually does have an adorable fluffy cat).

    The amount of time, effort, and candy that went into this work of edible art is amazing. It’s beautifully detailed from top to bottom, but we’re particularly impressed by the Gumball Guardians, whose sugar glass heads contain real gumballs.

    The newest Sleepy Hollow recap is up!  In the latest episode, Ichabod and Abbie learn about his lost son and fight a Golem.

Ichabod supplies an unusual word for &#8220;fidgety and restless&#8221;:  gumplefik (let&#8217;s all vow to use that in a sentence this week, okay?), and complains about modern word changes.  When Abbie sets down a box from the librarian&#8217;s stuff, Henry grunts, saying &#8220;the box is filled with pain.&#8221;  It bears the crest of Katrina&#8217;s coven.  And she is therefore&#8230;A WITCH!  Apparently she was a member of Katrina&#8217;s coven.  Cripes, in modern times you can barely organize a book club that stays together more than four months, but these Revolutionary-era club memberships last FOREVER.

    Family tree issues abound as Ichabod and Abbie find a haunted house and Captain Irving&#8217;s daughter visits. 

Ichabod gets in his weekly Modern Day complaints: McDonald&#8217;s (not Scottish enough; presumably he wanted haggis); historically inaccurate celebrations (venison trumped turkey for those pilgrims) and, well, Thanksgiving itself, a family holiday that bites when one doesn&#8217;t have actual family (or, you know, your wife&#8217;s trapped in a demonic purgatory).  Abbie assures him he has a right to be angry; plus, he&#8217;s just early for Festivus&#8217;s Airing of the Grievances.  

&amp;

Okay, putting Macey alongside my new beloved pairing of Frank Irving and Jenny Mills, we have now achieved Awesome Family.  Seriously, I flailed and immediately began devising scenarios in which Jenny teaches Macey how to jam a sharpened stick into an aggressor, Macey rolls her eyes while she paints Jenny&#8217;s nails a sparkly gold, and Captain Irving burns the pancakes he was trying to make and does a frown-y face before taking them all out to the diner for pie!

    My recap for the latest ep of Sleepy Hollow is now up!
Um, I may have started shipping Jenny Mills/Captain Frank Irving kind of hard in this episode.  Whoops?

Jenny Mills looks ready to throw down because Captain Irving dragged her in for questioning away from the café where she was enjoying a soy latte and free wifi.  Jeez, she couldn&#8217;t get a to-go cup?   &#8220;I don&#8217;t need another shoulder [to cry on],&#8221; Jenny snaps.  &#8221;You don&#8217;t like authority; I get it,&#8221; Captain Irving gripes.  Oh my god, hang on.  They should hook up. *_____*
Though Abbie wanted her called in, &#8220;so far you haven&#8217;t given me any confidence,&#8221; Irving scolds.  Whoops, there&#8217;s a situation at Adams&#8217; Antiques.  Jenny knows the place on account of how she sued to steal stuff for the owner.  &#8221;You can go it alone, or you can help us,&#8221; he advises when she tries to follow him.  &#8221;But I need to know: are you in or out?&#8221;  &#8221;In,&#8221; Jenny says.  &#8221;Then let&#8217;s take a ride.&#8221;  OH MY GOD, JUST MAKE OUT ALREADY!

    My recap of the latest episode of Sleepy Hollow is now up — come check it out!  An eensy bit of it:  

This week, let’s serve up some flashback right outta the gate!  “The Regulars are coming,” Paul Revere gallops in calling out (which, incidentally, would be a great name for a punk album).  Hey look, it’s our old pal Death riding to spoil everything!  You know it’s him because of his bald-spot arrow tattoo thingy and mask-whatsis (and no, you don’t need to correct me on terminology because thingy and whatsis are technical terms.  Back off, man.  I’m a scientist).  
"Paul, they&#8217;re here!" shouts Paul Revere&#8217;s companion, an unnamed sorta cute curly-haired glasses-wearing guy who will probably soon turn up in slash fics as Ichabod Crane&#8217;s One True Love.  Whoops, Curly Four-Eyes just got his head lopped off.  *cries* Cue the whump/angst scenarios!  Then Paul Revere totally outrides Death, because he&#8217;s a silversmith badass.
