Yes, "Sleepy Hollow," that's how you do a season finale.
The first season of FOX's bonkers breakout hit came to a delightfully thrilling conclusion in tonight's two hour finale. Literally every character was left in jeopardy and the writers pulled one hell of a twist on us, so let's start there.
It's a small miracle everyone makes it out of this episode of "Sleepy Hollow" alive. As the series races towards next week's finale, the tension is rising and this seemed like as good a week as any for the show to throw a shocking, emotional death our way.
It’s been the usual up-and-down Fall for “Saturday Night Live,” with as many hits as misses and more than a fair share of controversy swirling the production. But through it all, there have been many highlights. Some were silly. Some were slightly somber. All were compelling.

"Sleepy Hollow" has built up enough good will at this point that it would be easy to dismiss a more uneven episode like "The Golem" with a shrug and a "Can't wait till next month!" Because, really, even if this wasn't the show's finest hour (and possibly its weakest yet), I still can't wait for the final three episodes next month.
