‘Sleepy Hollow’ just did the most shocking thing. On the April 8 season finale, one of the show’s most beloved characters was killed off. And this isn’t some Jon Snow conspiracy, [SPOILER] is leaving the show for good.
Sleepy Hollow just pulled a Grey’s Anatomy. A major character died on the April 8 season 3 finale, leaving fans shocked and devastated. Sleepy Hollow’s showrunner confirmed that [SPOILER] is really dead and not coming back. Warning: massive spoilers ahead!
If you haven’t seen the season 3 finale of Sleepy Hollow and don’t want to be spoiled, you might want to step away and not read what’s below. If you want to read the spoilers, you’re about to learn who died!
Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie) is dead. Yes, really. Ichabod Crane’s partner sacrificed herself by stepping into Pandora’s box. Ichabod (Tom Mison) and Abbie were able to share a sweet final moment together. She told him, “Honor our bond and be brave, be strong. I know you will be. You’re my guy, always.”
Even though Sleepy Hollow is a supernatural show, showrunner Clifton Campbell stresses that Abbie’s death is real. Nicole has left the show.
“Nicole Beharie as Abbie Mills is no longer with the show,” Clifton told our sister site TVLine. “The character is dead… The character is gone and, like I said, in Sleepy Hollow it’s always surprising to see how the reflections of one character or another can influence the show moving forward.”
However, Clifton does give fans a glimmer of hope. “She will not return to the show as Abbie Mills,” he continued. “There’s certainly the possibility, given our really good relationship with Nicole and how much she’s help build us these past three seasons, that reflections of her will be around and that the idea of her will be around is certainly something we’ve all talked about, but not as the character of Abbie Mills.”
