Ichabod dreams of the Horseman chasing him through the forest as Katrina calls to him. Three more Horseman ride along with the first Horseman, Death, and they close in on Ichabod. He finally runs into some branches, which come to life and pull him into a cavern beneath the forest. Katrina tells her husband that they are safe there and says that he's been charged to defeat the Horsemen. Before they can ride, an army of evil will ride, and the first one, a witch, will rise with the blood moon. Katrina fades back into the shadows and something lunges at Ichabod from above.....

Episode Notes
The line "I will literally pay you to stop talking" by Abbie was also featured in Hawaii Five-0 episode 1.03 - 'Lanakila' (Victory) which is also run by the same producers of Sleepy Hollow - Alex Kurtzman & Bob Orci. The line was said by McGarrett to Danno.

Episode Quotes
Irving: We've been over this. The circumstances surrounding Sheriff Corbin's murder are opaque at best.
Abbie: That's one way of putting it. Another way would be to say that he was killed with an axe by a man with no head, but that would make me sound crazy.
Irving: You said it, not me.

Irving: We sent his test in for further pysch evaluation. The doctors say our man suffers from a disorder known as "objective transference." He may really believe that he decapitated a Hessian soldier during the Revolution War, that his wife is a witch who put a spell on him and now he woke up two centuries later in Sleepy Hollow. The details, the personality, they're all wildly specific and impossible. You know why? Because the human brain is limitless in its ability to trick itself.

Ichabod: No, what's insane is a ten-percent levy on baked goods. You do realize the Revolutionary War began on less than two percent? How is the public not flocking to the streets in outrage? We must do something.
Abbie: Here's what we can do: no more firsthand accounts of witches or founding fathers or donut tax outrage unless you want to be sent back to the asylum.
Ichabod: Point taken.

Abbie: We broke up when I was leaving for the FBI.
Ichabod: But you didn't leave.
Abbie: Nope.
Ichabod: Then theoretically you could rekindle the relationship.
Abbie: I will literally pay you to stop talking.
Ichabod: I would happily accept because I am in need of currency.

Ichabod: Mind the rats.
Abbie: Yes, I do.

Ichabod: My memory's eidetic. I retain what I see with near-perfect precision.
Abbie: You have a photographic memory?
Ichabod: Sights, sounds, even smells. Except, ironically, for the 250 years I can't seem to recall, which makes it of little use.

Ichabod: We must find her before she completes her resurrections and return her to the ashes from where she came.
Abbie: Meaning we burn her to the ground.
Ichabod: Oh, with great enthusiasm.
Abbie: Jolly good. Let's set her aflame and bury her bone where she'll never find them.

Abbie: What are you doing? You dropped your gun.
Ichabod: It was empty.
Abbie: You only fired one shot.
Ichabod: It has more?
Abbie: Yes, Crane, a lot more.

Cultural References
Abbie: I am so far down the rabbit hole here.

The White Rabbit is one of the primary characters in Lewis Carroll's 1865 novel Alice in Wonderland . A anthropomorphic rabbit, the White Rabbit is perpetually late. Alice enters Wonderland by chasing it into a rabbit hole and falling some vast indeterminate distance.
