Season 3 of Sleepy Hollow premiered Thursday night on Fox, showing fans that this season has the potential to be the best one yet.
While evil has certainly come back to Sleepy Hollow, the new character Pandora (Shannyn Sossamon) can be blamed for stirring the pot. And in the new promo that aired after Thursday night's episode, fans can see just what Pandora has in store for the town next week.
Titled "Whispers in the Dark," we see Pandora casting a spell to bring the evil she desires to Sleepy Hollow. And darkness is definitely growing. We see FBI Agent Daniel Reynolds (Lance Gross) for the first time as he comes face-to-face with a Grim Reaper-like character. Of course Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie) and Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) will team up to fight this shadow being, but they will need an arrow blessed by a high priest to defeat the new monster.
The promo also teases a new love connection that is brewing this season — and no, it's not between our two main characters. We learn that Mills and newcomer Agent Reynolds have something going on — which is obvious to everyone around them.
"I sensed something that seemed more than professional," Crane says, as Mills tells him to mind his business.
But even if a romantic connection is in the works, Mills must focus on the task at hand and work with Cane to defeat the new form of evil, facing the past in unexpected ways.
Check out the "Whispers in the Dark" promo below, and catch the new episode of Sleepy Hollow on Thursday, October 9 at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.
