I like how the handful of Katrina stans can only compliment her looks. In her defense for staying around all they can say is that she’s attractive and ‘looks good’ with Crane.
Then you have those that obviously never read the original story saying how their romance and marriage is sooo canon.
Then of course those that think us wanting more Abbie are wanting her to take over the show. Been there. In another fandom, my fave would be on screen for less than 5 minutes and maybe show up every 4 episodes and people would claim we were greedy to want more and the show wasn’t about them! There’s no reasoning with those folks. They want us to ‘trust the writers’ But as soon as something happens THEY don’t like, they’re right there protesting too. Such hypocrisy.
And yes, we all know that certain things have to play out and certain characters need some screen time to deal with certain story arcs and develop. But it’s how it’s executed that’s the problem. Fine if you think the Cranes need to work out their marriage but this isn’t Downtown Abbey. There doesn’t need to be so much screen time dedicated to that. Sure maybe Katrina needs to be fleshed out but why does that have to mean Abbie gets regulated to the background?
There was not ONE mention of Abbie in the recent Fox article that was posted on the Sleepy Hollow Facebook page. Despite the article being titled ‘What’s next for the Witnesses in 2015’; Goffman goes out of his way to mention how the Cranes are trying to work out their marriage. Really? In an article that’s supposed to entice us to watch for what’s in store for the show next year, that’s all he mentions? If you don’t see by now he has replaced Abbie with Katrina, you just don’t want to.
And no, they’re not avoiding showing Abbie because ‘every scene she’s in is just too spoilery’. Don’t be naive. They know what they’re doing with all this promo stuff. They know exactly what message they’re sending.
