Quick stats!

Man out of time moments: Crane practicing yoga, wearing yoga pants, and saying, “buns.” Crane asking if Superman was the “arachnid fellow.” Crane using a breathalyzer, saying he “won.” Crane gaming online, getting fragged.

Shade thrown:

Ichabod: “These unwinding activities, your yoga, your video games, they miss the point of relaxation. ‘The grass does not try to grow, the water does not try to flow…’.”

Abbie: “Yeah, well, Lao Tzu never had to hunt down a Wendigo.”

MOTW: Wendigo

Curse enacted: Henry turns Joe Corbin Jr. into a Wendigo using the Pied Piper’s pulverized bone pipe on a letter. Joe unwittingly slaughters his entire platoon (first change) and his friends (second change), chases Crane through the woods (third change), is blackmailed into trading the Rare Item of the Week to Henry for a cure, and subsequently betrayed into the fourth, permanent change, unless….

Rare item of the week: Jincan/Gu – rare Chinese poison made by pitting several venomous creatures against each other, concentrating the poison within the winner. Black magic which can transform into an animal. Used to manipulate lovers, create cancer, cause death.

Betrayal: Henry to Joe. “Your true curse is humanity. Abbie will see you for your true nature: a creature of war.”

The cure: Recite a Shawnee incantation written on a skull and blood drawn from the Wendigo with an obsidian knife.

Spilled tea: Daniel Boone’s hat choice (beaver vs raccoon) and the scars it allegedly covered, resulting from his brother’s Squire Boone’s cannibalism/Wendigoism.

Ichabod’s colonial expertise: A red fox foot totem hanging in the Shawnee’s garage means they’re a hunting party and the owner of the foot is a shaman.

Colonial insults doled out: Rantipole, shotton herring, scurvy louse, slop bucket, puss sludge no good by-blow pair of buns

Flashbacks: Corbin Sr. telling Abby about his son, whom she babysat.

Touching moments: Abby telling Crane about Joe Jr pretending to be Superman as a child, yelling to her, “I’ll save you!” Joe Jr. advising Ichabod that he tell Henry he loves him.

About Sarah de Poer (199 Articles)
Eminently sensible by day, by night, she can be found watching questionable scifi, pinning all the things, rewriting lists, pantry snacking, and not sleeping. She was once banned over an argument about Starbuck and Apollo, and she has to go right now because someone is wrong on the Internet.
