We chat about “Mama”, episode 9 of Sleepy Hollow and one of its best episodes ever. Abbie and Jenny take center stage when a murderous ghost shows up at Tarrytown Psych.

Listen to the podcast and check out the show notes after the jump.

This was Sleepy Hollow at its very best. Nicole Beharie and Lyndie Greenwood gave aware winning performances in this deeply emotional episode. The closeness of the two Mills sisters coming face to face with the mother who abandoned them was breathtaking.

In a season that has centered on Katrina and her captivity, it was a joy to follow Abbie and Jenny, as well as Orlando Jones’s Irving for an entire episode. This was a well needed change of pace, both with deep emotional impact as well as an interesting and much more subtle villain in Cynthia Stevenson’s Nurse Lambert.
