Thomas Grey, a young boy dying from the medieval plague, arrives in Sleepy Hollow. Mastering middle English, Ichabod works out he belongs to the Roanoke earliest English settlers in America, which that disease is believed to have wiped out. rather then accepting being quarantined, which doesn't seem to work anyway, Crane takes his witch-wife's advice to return Thom to the refuge against the purgatory pestilence which was spread by Moloch, as if could allow him to join the riders of the Apocalypse.

Did You Know?


Ichabod Crane claims that Middle English was the language spoken at the Roanoke Colony. The Roanoke Colony was founded in 1585. Middle English was spoken between 1100 and 1500. After 1500 the language had transitioned to early modern English, which was contemporaneous with Shakespeare and the King James Bible. See more »

Good, but...
23 December 2013 | by (Michigan, USA) – See all my reviews

I'll forgive Sleepy Hollow putting an occult/conspiratorial spin on American history - it's the show's premise, after all, and they're hardly the first to do it. I can't forgive them for being just plain WRONG on a basic fact that should have been obvious to anyone who ever passed high school English: Thomas Grey should have been speaking the English of Shakespeare, not Chaucer. Comprehensible, if archaic, to pretty much any random resident of Sleepy Hollow. And then they went to the bother of writing Middle English dialogue (it sounded plausible to me, at least), without noticing (or maybe without caring) that it was wrong? I'm not sure if that made it better or worse.

That made me so upset that I almost turned off an otherwise-pretty-good episode five minutes in. I consoled myself with a good rant at the ceiling instead.
