sleepy hollow 3x11
I like how in the shot of Abbie at the beginning of the episode we see that she’s already tracing out that symbol unconsciously. Crane being so excited and cheerful about turning their house into a desert landscape is beyond adorable. They’re a succulent family now! Eeeee! And then he put a bandaid on her finger and you could just stick a fork in me, because I was done.
So there was dialogue that happened on-screen, but my brain automatically translated all the content for me to the following:
Crane: I’m asking you about your sleep, but what I really want to do is lie beside you and hold you in my arms until you feel safe again.
Abbie: I’m going to brush this off like it’s nothing, but the truth is that when I saved Jenny I was prepared to die. Now I’m wondering if dying would have been easier.
Crane: I want to know what it was like for you. My heart breaks everytime you smile and it doesn’t reach your eyes.
Abbie: How can I talk about what it was like to feel like that place was relentlessly chipping away at who I was, destroying me piece by piece? How can I talk about the fact that as much as you were my anchor, as much as I needed that, it was also killing me to be able to feel my bond with you and not be able to reach you?
Crane: I spent every waking hour endeavoring to bring you home. This isn’t home without you.
Abbie: I’ve gotta laugh this off because it’s getting way, way too real for me.
Crane: What if we go out later, get some things for our house, eat lunch somewhere I’m hoping will make you laugh? I promise I’ll play along when you pretend to believe in the historical accuracy of the obviously preposterous theater of that restaurant.
Abbie: Every part of me needs to run right now.
Crane: I love you.
Abbie: Don’t worry, Crane. I’ll come back.
