Caroline mistakes Crane and Abby for a couple after Crane tells her that he is married. At the cabin, Abraham suspects that Katrina is using her witchcraft despite the parameters Henry Parrish put in place. He reaches out the Henry to strengthen the barrier. Ichabod visits Caroline to apologize for having her think he and Abbie are married. After he leaves, she hears the sound of someone weeping. Caroline finds a woman in her living room. The strange woman leaps at Caroline. In the morning, Caroline’s body is found in the river. Crane and Abbie go to the local high school for information. Two students who were at river last night tell them about the Weeping Lady. Abbie and Crane then head to the library to research the local legend. Crane receives a letter from Katrina via a crow. Abbie runs into Nick Hawley who offers her his assistance for no fee. Abbie leaves Hawley only to encounter the Weeping Lady herself. She is then pulled into a body of water that leads to the river. Crane rushes over to the pool of water and pulls Abbie out. Hawley uses mouth-to-mouth to revive Abbie. Afterward, Abbie and Crane go to the archives and learn more about the Weeping Lady. Abbie shows Crane a piece of the Lady’s shawl. Crane recognizes the shawl as it belonging to someone he knew named Mary. In the past, Crane turned down their proposed betrothal. They suspect that Mary is the Weeping Lady and that her next target is Crane’s wife Katrina.

Banshee. The Lady in White. Weeping Lady. These names refer to the creature featured in this episode of Sleepy Hollow. It is based off the Mexican folklore of La Llorona which tells about a woman who drowns her children to be with the man she loved only to end up rejected by him and sentenced to wonder the earth in search of her drowned children. The Weeping Lady and Lady in White versions of this tale tell of a woman who drowns herself as a result of being rejected by a man she loved. She wonders the earth weeping for her love and anyone who hears her sorrow will die. That is the theme of this episode. In the past, Ichabod Crane was betrothed to a woman named Mary Wells. He gently turns her down since it was an arranged engagement. Angered, she blames Katrina for changing him and accidently falls from a cliff in an attempt to harm Katrina. Mary is restored as the Weeping Lady by Henry Parrish. Her first target is Caroline who befriends Crane thinking him to be a Colonial reenactment performer dedicated to the role and life style as she. Crane attaches himself to Caroline since she is the only person besides Abbie Mills who understands him. At first, Caroline thought Crane was alone until he tells her that he is married. Abbie arrives in the middle of conversation which causes a very awkward moment, one that leaves Crane befuddled. The light humor is entertaining as always and this does play on the assumption by fans that Crane and Abbie should be together. Sadly, Crane has his heart solely for Katrina. However, that faithfulness Crane has in Katrina may have wavered. She knew about Mary’s accidental death and kept it from Crane, writing him a letter said to be from Mary. Crane confronts Katrina about her secret. She then drops a bomb on him. She tells him that she knew he would go back to England and try to make things right with Mary’s family, also stating that his duty as a witness was priority. Why did Katrina truly marry Crane? Is he a part of a larger plan concocted by Katrina and the coven? Does she truly and wholly love him or do her loyalties lie still with Abraham? Just when you think you know a person.

Well, Abbie and Crane may have a new ally in their fight against the forces of Moloch and the Horsemen of Death and War. Nick Hawley is beginning to prove useful. Ever since he encounter with the Pied Piper, he has begun boning up on supernatural creatures; however, he seems to still be skeptical about it. He may procure fabled weapons against the ‘Boogieman’ but he is not ready to believe yet. He is a wild card character since he is unwittingly securing items for Henry Parrish. But I have belief in Nick Hawley that he will come around…after something bad happens.
