John Noble is joining Fox’s Sleepy Hollow in three weeks and tonight the broadcast network gave viewers a first look at his character on the show (plus some other cool stuff from the episodes in between — the horseman returns, “there’s a war coming,” etc).

A sin eater, apparently, is a person that would take on the sins of a newly deceased person, allowing that person to rest in peace. This being Sleepy Hollow, there’s probably a twist on that.
