The episode description for Monday (November 17) night's "Sleepy Hollow" episode, titled "Mama," teases that Jenny and Abbie will "come face-to-face with their past" and mentions a series of mysterious deaths and "an especially surprising spirit."
No mention is made of resolution to last week's cliffhanger involving Bearded Man Walking Away From Bar.
That, unfortunately, is the life of an extra. You dedicate minutes -- whole minutes! -- to crafting an interior life for a character who may not even have a name in the official record, you work to hone that personal narrative so that it has a beginning, a middle and an end, you improvise and refine your performance, but then you watch the finished product and your entire arc has been reduced to nearly nothing, the faintest whisper of a story. In fact, if you end up being able to spot the back of your head, the outer edge of your shoulder or the shadow of your beard bathed in a sea of green light, that counts as a triumph.
If you watched last week's "Sleepy Hollow" and you also follow me on Twitter, you may have very briefly spotted me in a scene that took place two-thirds of the way through the episode.
