Nelson saved some standard stalker photos of Emily on his hard drive, so Abbie has a detective take the woman into protective custody. They don’t even make it out of the parking garage. Never send a non-Witness to do a Witness’ job. When the detective doesn’t check in, Abbie and Crane double back, only to find Nelson holding Emily at daggerpoint, still in the parking garage. Is it the largest in the country? Abbie kicks Nelson away from Emily and fights him, and Crane shoots Nelson in the neck with an infected blood capsule — but there’s no effect, so he picks up the fight while Abbie gets Emily to safety. Nelson stabs Crane, and Crane injects himself with a disease. Both men stagger to the ground.

Fortunately, you don’t make it to adulthood in the 18th century without developing resistance to a few diseases. Crane’s illness of choice was malaria, and he’s already survived it. He recovers on Abbie’s couch, drugged up enough to get real with his emotions but not too drugged up for a fist bump. He tells Abbie that he’s “most grateful” to have her back, and he’s sure they’ll foil Pandora’s plan once they’ve found out what it is. They already know one thing: It involves raising fear. Pandora watches them through her koi pond as the tree of fear keeps blooming.

Meanwhile, Jenny and Joe are on a rogue mission to recover the stolen Shard. They track Randall to a motel, only to get fleeced by another woman, who drives off after taking the Shard for herself. Jenny follows her to a diner and finds the Shard in a hidden compartment in her car battery — an August Corbin original trick. Did Corbin have other protégés? And what is so important about this Shard? If it winds up being part of Pandora’s agenda, exactly how many minutes will Jenny need to take Pandora out? My money’s on one, tops.

  • Ichabod Crane, American citizen! It does sound good.
  • Zoe Corinth is so inspired by Crane’s patriotism that she wants to help speed up his citizenship application process — which she can actually do, since her brother-in-law is a member of the Senate subcommittee on immigration. The fact that she’s definitely into him doesn’t hurt.
  • “Oh, as if Adams would have done any different.”
  • Did Crane ever go to the hospital? How would that even work? “This is my friend; he’s immune to a bunch of 18th-century diseases and you won’t find any record of his birth, but please treat him.”
  • I could have actually done with more of Abbie worrying over Crane. Bring me your angst.
  • Danny continues to talk a good talk about how he sees Abbie as a complete equal and how their history doesn’t need to get in the way, but his idea of “helping each other” is ultimately self-serving. He just wants to climb the ladder.
  • “You two have a great day agenting.”
  • “Is it too much to ask that the second tribulation be easier than the first?”
  • “Did you at least stop creeping on her long enough to get her name?”
  • “That is a whole lot of knife, even for Sleepy Hollow.”
