Pissed. Outraged. Appalled. If you’re a devout Sleepy Hollow fan, a.k.a., a Sleepyhead, you may still be recovering from the shock of agent Abbie Mills’s death in the Season 3 finale. And if you take to tweeting or have been anywhere near the Internet, you might have come across numerous comments and the hashtags #CancelSleepyHollow (which actually surfaced before Abbie died) and #IAmAbbieMills.
In a statement released to TVLine.com, actress Nicole Beharie stated that “Abbie Mills has done all she was meant to do.” And though Beharie supposedly wanted out of the show for a while, her character’s death leaves a gaping hole in Sleepy Hollow. It also reminds us of the number of minority characters on the show who previously left or were killed off altogether. But none of them were lead characters. How will Sleepy Hollow go on without Abbie Mills? More importantly, now that Abbie’s gone, who will be watching?
In honor of our fallen hero, let’s take a walk down Abbie memory lane.
