The Big Bang Theory S8E7 - "The Misinterpretation Agitation" Recap


Bernadette tells the girls that she has been selected as one of fifty most beautiful scientists for a magazine article. Amy doesn't approve of this because she thinks women shouldn't have to flaunt their sexuality but Penny says that perhaps if there had been attractive female scientist public figures when she was growing up, she would have pursued the field.

Sheldon meets a middled-aged man with roses and at first believes him to be a delivery man. He's actually a doctor who hoped to impress a flirty pharmaceutical sale rep that makes deliveries to his office. Sheldon is surprised but says nothing to the man when he sees him approach Penny's door. He does however tell Leonard what has just happened. Leonard informs the man that he is engaged to Penny and the man goes to leave, feeling disappointed, till Sheldon invites him in for a hot beverage.

Bernadette tells Amy that the article has been pulled. She is disappointed but Amy says perhaps it's for the best. Amy admits that she's the reason it was pulled because they would not have written this article about male scientists and was in poor taste. Bernadette insults Amy in the heat of the moment, causing Amy to leave.

The doctor then tells them that he is a urinary specialist to the stars and as a result, has amassed a large collection of sci-fi and video game memorabilia. The guys are excited to see the collection some time. The doctor asks Leonard advice on how he got a girl like Penny. Sheldon says Leonard succeeded through implacable, relentless badgering.

Penny comes in and is embarrassed by the situation. She and Leonard step out and she apologises to Leonard but says that it's just like when she was a waitress: she makes more sales when she flirts. He explains how he is still there because Sheldon invited him and Penny says that she's not allowed to fraternise with the doctors outside of work so he needs to leave. But Leonard and the rest of the men end up going with the doctor, Oliver, to see his collection. He also lives with his loud mother, similar to Howard. Sheldon mentions to Oliver that Leonard and Penny's relationship is doomed to fail so he locks the men in the basement, something they don't notice at first because they're enjoying themselves too much.

Oliver goes to try again with Penny but becomes smitten with Amy on the way up and tries to give her the flowers instead. Leonard calls Penny to tell him about getting locked in and Penny forces Oliver to go back and let them out. Bernadette arrives on their way out to apologise to Amy, and ends up peaking Oliver's interest too. When Oliver and the women arrive, Oliver is forced to apologise but they are having too much fun over Leonard's playing Donkey Kong.

The Big Bang Theory airs on Thursdays on CBS at 8PM.

American Horror Story Freak Show S04E04 Recap: Edward Mordrake Pt. 2

The Freak Show remains quiet on Halloween, with Edward Mordrake's eerie green fog accompanies his ghost around as he questions other freaks looking for the one to add to his troupe. So far he has not found the one pure freak to add to his group. He makes them all confess their sin, telling him how they came to be a part of the show. He wants their darkest moments. The woman with no legs stabbed a man she was jealous of, though he had inspired to perform. The microcephalics, Pepper and Salty, dance around innocently, not a care in the world or even notice that Mordrake is watching them. Paul sought solace in the dark, he came during the depression though. People hated his deformity, and he hated them, wanted to make them fear him, so he tattooed his body, but not his handsome face. He could have ruled the world with a different body. None of them are the one he's looking for.

Mordrake pays Elsa a visit. He wishes to see her deformity, but she's not ready to show him it yet, she needs to talk. She thinks him the man that will launch her career, but he bursts her bubble. He calls out her delusion, calling her a waste of air. She tells him to get out, thinking him a fake, but he's very real. His freaks grab hold of her, pulling her prosthetic legs from her body, as she screams that she is not one of them. She pretends to be the zoo keeper of the freaks, but she's very much one of them.

Jimmy and Maggie run out of gas. Maggie thinks it's Jimmy's way of making a move on her, and she lashes out at him, but that's not his intention at all. With the curfew in effect, Jimmy thinks that they should get off the road and hide, but Maggie knows the intentions of men. Jimmy insists that she isn't his type, but she knows that in the dark men are less picky, and doesn't believe him that pretty faces aren't his type. He tells her that she has nothing to worry about from him, she should worry more about the townies, they only tolerate them because their freakishness makes them feel better about themselves. A car approaches, and Maggie follows Jimmy into hiding.

The bratty brother is finally awake in the bus, and he wonders if he's going to die. The picnicing girl has no intention of dying there, and she doesn't think that he will either. The little boy is asleep, weak from hunger. She tries to get the brother to untie her as Twisty returns. He opens the cage, and she makes a move. She shoulders Twisty out of the way, and runs off. The brother sits and cowers with fear as she runs away.

Jimmy and Maggie navigate the shadows trying to make it back to camp. They spot the girl running for her life, with the demented clown on her trail. The pair hides, waiting and watching as the clown takes her down, knocking her out and scoops her up to return her. Jimmy follows the clown to see if he can help the girl, and Maggie has no choice but to tag along.

Elsa rights herself, trying to seduce Mordrake, but he's beyond seduction. He wants her misery only, her pair. 1932 sexual depravity hit all corners. Whatever you wanted you can have it, and Elsa found herself in the middle of it. She was a myth, the star even there. She never let her clients touch her, unlike the other whores, she dominated them on every level. In time she attracted clients and audiences. She called the watchers, she didn't know their names, only that they paid well. In the end she was nothing, she became a ghost. But that's not the worse. Mordrake wants more.

Jimmy and Maggie watch the clown as he goes back to the bus. Jimmy cautions Maggie, wants her to stay while he gets a closer look. He peers inside, and he knows that the guy is a killer. Before he can go get the cops, Twisty's spoiled sidekick Dandy knocks out Jimmy. Now it's time for the real show.

Hotel Olympia, 1932. Elsa was the top seller, but this time was different. Drunk, she shows up, and the camera's roll. The man offers her a drink. She was all alone, for the film which was off. She was utterly powerless, but even drugged it wasn't enough to dull the pain as they bound her and cut off her legs. They left her there to die, but one of her clients had fallen in love with her. He followed her everywhere, and rushed in the minute they left. She never forgave him for it. The film was passed around everywhere. She was a star, but her career was over. She had the most beautiful legs. Mordrake's other face tells him that she is the one, and Elsa is ready for him to take her, but as she begs him to take her he hesitates. He hears music.

In the woods, the show is starting, and music sounds as Twisty plays off key. Dandy announces his act. He plans to saw Tiny Tits (Maggie) in half. Jimmy awakens as the show begins, and he knocks out Dandy to save Maggie. Twisty claps an applause, and Jimmy tells everyone to run. Twisty manages to grab only Jimmy and brings him back to his bus. As he raises his scissors over Jimmy, he stops, noticing Mordrake. Mordrake wants to see the show though.

Dandy screams at his former hostages. He wants to finish his show. Maggie points them into the direction of the road, telling them to call the police as Maggie leads Dandy away. He trips over a log. She ruined his Halloween.

Mordrake tries to get Twisty to open up, but he remains silent. He wants him to remove his mask, to tell him his story. Twisty's jaw is all but gone, he's not able to do much more than make some noise. Mordrake tells him to slow, and focus so that he can understand him. It was 1943, and he was the special Chidren's clown in a traveling carnival. He loved the children, but not the freaks, they were mean. One night, two little people invite him to join them for a smoke around the fire. It burns his throat, and the teasing goes on. One of the guys accuses him of molesting the kids, they scare him, telling him that the cops are coming for him, and the poor simpleton believes and runs off. News travels quickly in the carnival circles, and he went home, but his mother had died, so he sought solace in his bus. He had the idea that he would turn trash into gold, he tried to sell his creations to a toy store, but the toy maker refused to buy them. He tried to interest one little boy in his toy, but only scared him and his mother. The Toy maker alludes that he's one of those people who do bad things to kids, and Twisty freaks out. He's not a bad person. Depressed, he tries to commit suicide, but he's so dumb he can't even do that right, and managed to only blow off his jaw with the shotgun. That's when he had a new idea. He haunted the freak show. It's a sad tale a pitiful one, but Mordrake wants more. Twisty saved the kids from the freaks. The children forgot that they loved him, and the freaks were stealing them once more. He tells Mordrake how came up with a show for the child that he took, scare the crap out of is more like it. How things happened aren't quite how he remembers them. Is the end of out twisted clown? He was nice and didn't make the child do any chores, though he did kill his mother. He even got a pretty babysitter for him, no mention of the boyfriend he killed. He believes he's good, and Mordrake's other face renders his decision. Mordrake has met many, but only Twisty has caused the demon to weep. Mordrake drives his sword into Twisty's stomach as Jimmy watches from the bus. The dead troupe claim their newest member, welcoming him into their fold. In death his jaw is restored, he's whole, and he has a new home. Jimmy hides before the ghosts can see him.

Dandy comes back to find Twisty dead. He takes up Twisty's fallen mask, and slides into his serial killer state. Sirens sound in the distance, which aren't nearly as comforting as they should be to Jimmy.

Morning has arrived. The detectives look around the scene of Twisty's and Dandy's last act. One questions Maggie asking if she ever saw the faces of her almost killers, but she didn't, the sawer had a mask. Another detective focuses on Jimmy, asking if he recognized the voices. He didn't. The detective tells Maggie that she's a hero, she got the others back to their families safely, but she insists the real hero is Jimmy. The other detective takes a more accusatory stance, acting as if Jimmy was in on the whole thing, even threatening to take him in. Jimmy isn't taking his crap though, and tells him to write his name down so he knows how to spell it when he goes to the reporters. He alludes that the real killer is them, they killed Meep and he didn't deserve to die, someone is going to pay.

Maggie and Jimmy arrive back at the show, and Elsa gives them an icy reception, thinking they've been out lollygagging all night. Being turned down by Mordrake is rubbing her the wrong way. Jimmy announces that the curfew has been lifted. Maggie tells Elsa that they caught the killer, rather Jimmy did, and that because of him the kids were saved. She gives Jimmy a kiss before leaving him, her opinion of him has changed. Jimmy may be reconsidering his type. Elsa sees that Maggie has cast a spell on Jimmy. Elsa tells him about Mordrake visiting, Jimmy knows he saw him claim his freak. People arrive at the show, and Elsa is sure that they're getting ready to drive them away, but they aren't. One of the fathers has come to thank Jimmy, he saved his son and his town. The people embrace the freaks, and Jimmy searches out Maggie's face, unsure of the reception. Elsa uses the good fortune to tell everyone about the evening's show. Dell drunkenly stumbles from his trailer to see Jimmy surrounded by the townspeople being enbraced.

Elsa and the others ready for a big show. She has news for the embittered Dot and Bette. They have a sold out show, and she's changing around the show. Dot thinks that now that there's a sold out show they'll be warming up for her, but she's doing no such thing. They're warming up for the pinheads. They were last week's big news, and that banner has been taken down. Mansfield now Richard Spencer comes stumbling in. He'd wanted to buy a ticket,but the show is sold out. He hands Elsa his card, claiming to be a talent scout, and she makes room for him.


Dandy returns home looking more a mess than normal. Dora is still not impressed by him, and she reminds him that Halloween is over. She wants him to take a tray to his mother, who is exhausted after trying to find him a better costume. When Dandy just stands there, Dora demands that he move out of her way so that she can take the tray up herself. He slashes her throat, and Dora bleeds out on the floor as Dandy sits there laughing.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S2E6 - "A Fractured House" Recap


Hydra sends some agents in to the UN to take out a number of dignitaries with Obelisk, all which claiming to be SHIELD and further sully the organisation's name. The Obelisk throws disks that makes people turn to ash. Skye and Simmons monitor Ward, who wakes up every morning at 5:30 on the dot to train despite not having a clock or any light to indicate what time it is.

Coulson sends May, Morse, and Hunter to Japan to go after the man who made the weapons, Toshiro Mori. Lance isn't all that comfortable to be back in the field with his ex-wife but Coulson tells him to stay focused on the mission. Surprisingly, General Talbot doesn't believe that SHIELD was responsible but senator Christian Ward (WARD???) tells him to put SHIELD in the ground. Talbot would rather take a level-headed approach but Christian Ward isn't hearing any of it.

Simmons comes to the lab and starts talking with Fitz. She asks for some help repairing a damaged hard drive she stole from Hydra. She wants to things to be as they were but he's not the same man and he hasn't healed from the wounds she left either. Fitz tells her outright that he's different now and she left when he needed help and someone to support him through his recovery. He was worried about her and doesn't understand why she left. She doesn't have a good answer for him, though.

Skye goes to ask Ward about his older brother and he warns her that Christian's dangerous and only cares about inflicting pain. Ward doesn't want to share information on his brother but Coulson ends the conversations, saying they have what they need.

The team in Japan is ready to have Bobbis go in and use her Hydra cover to try to get to Toshiro but May warns her to get out if she senses anything is off. Bobbi gets intel on the weapons and the Obelisk but Lance goes running out when they intercept a message that Bobbi is to be taken out. Cute the shoot-out and some epic butt-kicking, after which the team gets off free and Lance and Bobbi engage in some quality bickering.

Coulson pays a visit to Christian in his office. It's quite the move and Coulson messes with Christian's speech and his phone. Coulson tells him about Whitehall and the truth about the attack. Christian says the American public just need a public enemy so Coulson drops a bomb - that Ward is Hydra and he has him stowed in the basement. Christian appears concerned for Ward's well-being and is worried that he might have been tortured. Coulson says he knows about the well but Christian says that Ward is not who he seems and that all he tells are lies. While Christian is warning Coulson about Ward, Ward is doing the same thing to Skye, saying that Christian will do whatever it takes to manipulate people to his will. While Skye is ready to hear everything Ward has to say about her father, Coulson makes arrangements to have Ward handed over to Christian.

Ward says that Skye's mother is dead, having been killed by Hydra agents that had hunted down that family. Skye's father tore a village apart after learning he'd lost his family in a single day. Ward has connections, people he can talk to, to help them find her father. Skye thanks Ward for sharing everything he knows and says that he is being transferred. He will be placed into his brother's custody, and presumably be publicly denounced as a terrorist, and Christian will overturn his anti-SHIELD policies.

The field team has followed their lead to Belgium but the rest of the team puts together the fact that the target in Belgium is a ruse by Hydra so that a team of assassins can go after the field team and take them out.

Ward is trying to plead his case to Coulson but Coulson tells Ward he is not nor will he ever be a part of the team again. He is no longer of use. Ward asks whose idea it was to put him on trial and notes the political benefits this will have for Christian.

Multiple SHIELD members are murdered, but of course May, Hunter, and Morse are still alive by the end of it. They arrive at the safe house where Lance provides a distraction so May and Bobbi can come crashing through the windows and all kick off an epic fight against the team of Hydra mercs. It's but a small victory given all the fellow agents that died but the fight carries on.

Simmons goes to thank Mac for helping Fitz and being his friend but Mac says that Fitz doesn't need any help. He tells Simmons off, and that she left after he told her how he felt. He also points out that she just makes him worse and she says she knows. "Why do you think I left?"

Ward cooperates as Coulson hands him over to a military escort. Meanwhile, Christian is giving a speech about his brother being a member of Hydra. Talbot is meeting with May to apprehend the remaining Hydra members and he respectfully acknowledges the loss of her fallen comrades. Ward tells Coulson to tell Skye this doesn't change anything and that he keeps his promises. Christian is promising that Ward will be punished for his crimes and it's then that Ward breaks out of his restraints and takes out the guards escorting him.

A man walks into a tattoo shop, saying tonight they finish it. He says the pain helps him remember and we see that his torso is covered in the alien markings that Coulson has been carving.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs on Tuesdays on ABC at 9PM.

Gotham S01E06 Recap: Spirit of the Goat

Gotham City, ten years ago. A man slowly embodies the Spirit of the Goat, going from meek to fierce. So far the Goat hasn't spoiled the Waynes family celebration. They're opening their home to orphanages. On a rooftop a girl is grabbed by the Goat.

Harvey is eager to get inside, but his partner is willing to let the girl die. The maniac has already killed two, and Shelley Lawson may soon make three. Randall Milky believes that he's embodied an ancient spirit, who is sacrificing the girls. Harvey rushes in, and his partner has no choice but to follow him in. They find the girl, and she was recently placed there. His and his partner fall through the floor. Harvey shoots and kills Milky, but his partner does not rise. Harvey sounded a lot like Jim Gordon back there.

Now. Harvey is haunted by a murder scene that is very familiar looking. Nygma tries to get Harvey to play his game, but Harvey isn't interested in riddles. The girl comes from money, likely the eldest in the family, the Goat always killed the first born. Harvey isn't happy to have a copy-cat killer on a case that brings up troubled memories, and he's definitely not happy about being on the clock before Gordon.

Gordon and Barbara are fighting again. She's unhappy about secrets, and Gordon has no choice but to keep them. The city is corrupt. He came to be a cop, but the city needs something else. Barbara isn't asking for it all, she just wants half of what he carries. They're not still fighting but rather negotiating. She wants him to just let her in, and then they're okay. His phone continues to vibrate across the table. He promises to tell her everything he can, to make it right.

Montoya and Allen continue to canvas the water front trying to find anything to prove that Jim Gordon murdered Oswald Cobblepot. If they don't get some hard evidence soon, then the MCU is dropping the case. They speak to a homeless man, and he points the finger at Gordon, saying that he killed in cold blood. Though he'd likely say just about anything at the moment as long as he doesn't have to leave his spot.

Jim Gordon shows up to the crime scene. Harvey is in an extra good mood this morning. The Goat being back, even as a copy cat is bad news for the Gotham PD. He figures that the Goat knew the victim, and the pair head to speak to her family. Harvey wants Nygma to alert him before the autopsy starts, but doesn't tell him what he's looking for exactly, and the normally easy going Nygma hardens at the secret.

Mr. Hastings has been having nightmares about a dark presence. He claims that his daughter was loved by nearly everyone. His hand begins to spasm, and his response time slows. His therapist suggests a break. Neither of the Hastings are really up to dealing with their daughter's death, but Mr. Hastings is especially weak the therapist informs them.

Nygma goes to the Records Annex, sniffing at the record keeper. He's looking for information on the Goat killings, and he finds that interesting. He also finds it interesting that the keeper's parents kept their surname and named her Kristen Kringle. They must be humorous people. She doesn't seem to appreciate Nygma, reminding him that he needs to check out any records. Nygma moves onto the poor organization of the place. She warns Nygma that she has everything where she wants it. He offers to help it, and she doesn't take him up on it or the double entrende.

Gordon and Harvey look for clues. Harvey remembers on the last case, they didn't find any signs of entry either, but that the victims were taken from their homes. Milky had keys to the building because of his work. Gordon puts a call in for all personnel who have access to the Hastings building.

Oswald pays his deal old mother a visit. She thinks that he ran off with some hussy. There was no hussy, only cruelty, and savagery. He just wanted a little respect. She tells her beloved boy that they are only mean because they're jealous. He plans to be someone in Gotham, and she is confident he will be.

The autopsy reveals that the girl asphyxiated. Harvey asks the ME to look at the base of her skull for a small incision, stitched closed. The ME is surprised to find it, and inside is a foreign object, a penny. That was a fact that was never released. It can't be a copy-cat.

Milky always put a penny in the back of the heads of each of his victims, but Harvey has no clue about it. The detail was left out of the file for a reason. The ME that worked on the case is dead, so that only leaves Harvey, and his former partner. Captain Essen sends him to go pick Diggs's brain for ideas, and see if he leaked the coin info.

Bruce watches Goat Watch. Many of the Gotham elite are headed to the Swiss Alps in order to slip from the threat. Alfred points out that Bruce is fits the victim description, and suggests that perhaps they should slip away just in case. But Bruce refuses to leave, he doesn't think the Goat will come for him, and he has work to do.

Kristen is horrified to return and find that her Records room has been reorganized by Nygma. She freaks out. The room was perfectly organized. She wants to know what she ever did to him, wondering if he wants her job. He doesn't want her job, but her... to keep her job. Seeing her distaste he makes a getaway, leaving her to her files.

Harvey tries to let Gordon out of seeing his former partner, Diggs, but Gordon won't have it. Diggs is in a wheelchair now, after the incident with the goat. Number one rule in Gotham, no heroes, Diggs reminds him. He'd been wondering when Harvey would come to him about the case. They sealed the records, so no one should know about the coins. Harvey reveals that the current killer is also stitching pennies into the heads of the victims. Gordon asks if there was any ideas where that trademark came from. If none of them talked, then Milky wasn't working alone. Diggs thinks its s conspiracy. Harvey doesn't buy it. Diggs remarks that Harvey has always thought he was the smartest one in the room. Diggs warns Gordon to be careful of Harvey, that he's a loose cannon with a white knight complex, that could get him hurt. Gordon is surprised at his description of Harvey. Harvey checks with Diggs's nurse to make sure that he's still getting the stuff that he's been sending.

Another socialite gets ready to leave. She sends her maid to grab some things for her while she heads upstairs. The maid is grabbed by the goat and tossed aside. The girl comes down stairs to check on Anita, and is also grabbed.

Harvey wants every free cop on the case. It's their guy. Milky's past crime to dress and display the victims took about eight hours so they have a little bit of time.

Barbara confronts Montoya, but Montoya doens't think she should be there, or seen in public with her. Barbara asks her to keep an open mind about Gordon, she knows he's protecting her. He wants to open up to her, but he's afraid. Montoya knows he has a good reason to be afraid, that what he knows, who he knows could kill her. The judge has issued a warrant, and she warns Barbara to get out. If Gordon is going to be arrested, then by his side is where she needs to be.

Harvey and Gordon narrow down the possible suspects, while Nygma is all too quiet. His cracks are showing more and more.

Harvey and Gordon arrive to the most likely location. The girl is still alive, but drugged. Shes already in position, and its deja vu all over again. Same place, same scenario us running. Gorodn heads after the girl, who is still alive, and Harvey goes after the goat. Harvey and the Goat tussle, and the Goat throws Harvey down the stairs taunting him. You can never stop the Goat, he always comes back. Gordon rushes in to assist Harvey, throwing more than a few punches. He knocks out the Goat.

Cat creeps into the Waynes mansion. Bruce is asleep on the couch as she looks at his wall of suspects and information. Cat grabs a trinket off the desk, but exits quickly when she hears Alfred down the hall.

Penguin takes a bath. His mother has pressed his suit. His overly dotting mother, takes up the sponge and rubs him down. She worries about his safety, but he's made a friend with a police man, a good one.

Harvey and Gordon update Captain Essen. They've done good, but Harvey something is bothering Harvey. Prior to taking up the goat persona, both the current and previous Goat's had the same job, were mild mannered with no violent or criminal. It was like they were over taken by something. Harvey is haunted by the cases. He watches the man through the window as his demeanor suddenly changes from fierce and confident to scared.

Gordon returns home, Barbara is packing. He's exhausted, but she tells him that he has to listen. Montoya has a witness to the Cobblepot murder. Gordon insists that he didn't kill the man, and she believes him, but there's a warrant for his arrest. She wants to know what he's hiding. She wants to know what's changed, he's been different since he started the job, and she wants to know what happened. Barbara wants him to run. If they take him away, she's scared that she'll lose him, but he refuses to run. Allen and Montoya come to arrest Gordon for the murder of Oswald Cobblepot. Barbara watches him taken away in handcuffs.

Harvey pays the Hastings a visit again. He wanted to speak to the therapist, rather than Hastings. She's a hypnotherapist, and he wants to know a little about her pro bono patients. The current Goat is one of her patients and she's been doing pro bono work for 12 years. He noticed that Mr. Hastings had clenched his fist the day before, when the questioning got intense, it wasn't a spasm, and researching Harvey found that sometimes that tactic is used to teach patients to do that rather than another compulsion. But the guy being held also does that. Harvey wants to know what he's fighting. Harvey also knows that she treated Milky as well. She hypnotized the crap out of the men, to make them forget who they were, turning them upside down. She underestimated him, and he continues to unravel the scheme. He wants to know the reason behind it. It's all about therapy, not for the men, but for Gotham. The city use to have hope, until the rich and powerful gunned it down in the street. If they believed the Goat was real, that they wouldn't tolerate it, then they would shape up. Its true that you can't hypnotize someone to do something they don't actually want to do, but they were willing. Mr. Hastings comes to check on his doctor. Harvey plans to arrest her, but instead she unleashes Hastings on him, while she gets away. Harvey gets free of Hastings, and shoots the Dr in the leg.


Harvey has to explain to the Captain why he drove to the nice part of town and shot the doctor. She was an accomplice he tells her. Gordon is brought in in cuffs, and he's not happy. They all want the same thing, and he's actually progressing in cleaning up the city. Captain Essen isn't happy about seeing her detective in cuffs. Allen lists the charge against Gordon, which Gordon says is a lie. Harvey backs him up like a good partner, but its the truth. Allen and Montoya arrest Harvey as well, the witness identified him at the scene as well. Captain Essen isn't willing to stand for them taking down the GCPD, and Harvey and Gordon are apart of it. There's no need for haste though, Cobblepot makes an entrance, announcing himself, and Harvey is not pleased.

Sleepy Hollow S2E6 - "And the Abyss Gazes Back" Recap


Abbie teaches Ichabod some yoga and he takes offence to the word "buns." She also gets him to open up and admit how hurt he is by all that Katrina had kept hidden from him. They decide to head out and grab a beer instead. While out, they encounter some men getting into a fight and Abbie goes to break it up. She finds that one of the men is Joe Corbin, Sheriff Corbin's son. He's back from Afghanistan, having been dishonourably discharged. He blames her for the death of his father and tells her to stay away.

Ichabod and Abbie later respond to a call about a noise complaint involving Joe. They head into the woods, where they find multiple dead bodies that have been brutally torn open, with Joe being the only survivor. Joe thinks his father knew something about what's happening with him and expresses jealousy to Abbie over the time his father spent with her instead of him.

Henry pays another visit to Irving, who is still mad about his soul being stolen. Henry tells him he can reclaim it if he kills a man, a soul for a soul. Henry points out another man in the hospital, the man who drove drunk and paralysed Irving's daughter. Irving swears not to kill for vengeance and Henry warns him that those who gaze into the abyss are at risk of the abyss gazing back.

Ichabod hasn't found anything on the creature from the woods in the research he's done but Ichabod believes that Joe may have been responsible for the deaths in the woods. The monster in the woods took human organs and possibly consumes them. Ichabod recalls his time knowing Daniel Boone to bring us to our monster of the week: the Wendigo. Presumably, Joe is a Wendigo. The change is triggered by the scent of human blood and can only be turned back upon consuming human organs.

Ichabod and Abbie learn that Joe has run off again so they head to Corbin's place where they find the Sheriff's last will and testament. They follow the coordinates to a location in the woods where they find Joe digging up a box left for him by his father. Joe tries to run away and when Ichabod accidentally cuts himself, Joe screams at them to run. He transforms into a Wendigo and begins to chase Ichabod. Abbie has broken into Joe's car and snatched up a tranquilliser gun which she uses to subdue WendiJoe.

Ichabod and Abbie bring him back to their hideout where Hawley is waiting and Jenny arrives with some stolen organs which she feeds to WendiJoe, thus allowing him to return to his normal human state. Abbie explains to Joe what he is and says that she can help him. He tells her this began two weeks ago when he received a letter covered in white powder. Ichabod and Abbie realised that Henry sent the letter after grinding up the Pied Piper's Flute. The letter said Joe was cursed and thus Joe returned to find the cure.

Ichabod examines the contents of the box and finds that it is a powerful poison from south China and this is what Henry must be after. If Joe transforms once more, the change will be permanent so they must find a cure before Henry comes looking for the poison. Ichabod apologises to Joe for his son's actions but warns him not to trust Henry. Joe tells Ichabod to make sure he tells his son he loves him no matter what.

Hawley offers up a connection to some Shawnees. (Shawnees were the ones who originated the curse). Hawley tells Ichabod to keep his mouth shut but Hawley has left a bad impression after going back on the terms of a deal so Ichabod is the one that smooth-talks Big Ash into giving them access to their Shman who will help them cure the Wendigo curse.

Abbie has a heart-to-heart with Joe in which she assures him that the Sheriff loved and was proud of him. She also tells him that the Sheriff's love for his son was what made her want to turn her life around, as she wanted to be a part of that. But the nice moment is broken up by Henry, who demands the box. He has henchmen with guns and Jenny draws her own weapon, ready to defend themselves. But Joe surrenders the box and himself, as Henry says he'll cure Joe. Abbie warns him not to go but Joe doesn't listen. Henry's henchmen chain up the vault with Abbie and Jenny still inside. Outside, Henry slices Joe's arm, saying he has cured him of his true curse: humanity.

Irving confronts Gil, the man who paralysed Macy, and is ready to rise above it all and leave him be. But when Gil says one too many insensitive things about Macy, Irving attacks him. He has a vision of the apocalyptic setting like the one he saw in his dream. He leaves Gil alive, but is shaken at his nearly losing himself to darkness.

Ichabod and Hawley free Abbie and Jenny from the vault. Ichabod has a skull and an incantation he must read once he gets some of WendiJoe's blood into the hollowed skull. He also has a spike that can take him down if that does not work. Abbie is determined to save Joe. She and Ichabod head off after him. Abbie cuts her hand to lure Joe and Ichabod insists on doing the same, saying of course he's coming with her. He must atone for the trouble his son has caused, after all. Once they corner WendiJoe, Ichabod recites the incantation but ti doesn't work. Ichabod is ready to take him out but Abbie insists that Joe simply needs more time and pleads with him to come back. With a dramatic convulsion, Joe turns back into a human.

Abbie brings Joe back to the hang-out place where Ichabod is playing video games and unleashing a hilariously Ichabod-brand of name-calling, including the word "buns." Joe asks Abbie for a favour. He wants to carry on the torch of his father helping people so he'd like a letter of recommendation to Quantico. Abbie is more than happy to do so. She gets a call from Irving, who tells her about Henry owning his soul and how he almost killed a man. Abbie tries to assure him that they'll fix this and Irving begs her to not let him down. Ichabod agrees with Abbie that Henry must be stopped but after seeing how she fought for Joe even when he seemed beyond saving, he feels he must fight for his son. Meanwhile, Henry has poured out the contents of the poison and put it back together in the form a black widow spider which we see crawl up into Katrina's mouth. Gross.
