That task was to keep Abbie and Ichabod equal in representation. Once they failed this and started elevating Ichabod above Abbie all of the problems started.
The fans are split down the middle. SH Tumblr use to be so fun. Now it is a war zone. All of the positive articles about the show are null…
Come on, now.
Ichabod Crane isn’t abusing her. He’s pissy and fussy and presumptive but he’s ALWAYS been like that.
No one had any problems when these personality traits were for Abbie’s benefit.
Newsflash: Drinking sleep potion and running into an unknown firefight (without asking her) are the result of the exact. same. negative traits.
…Hell, people were complaining that he was too flawless.
Now, he’s written as a fully realized character, one who has bad days and forgets himself, can be an ass at times just like *every* human being and folks are ready to crucify him, because Abbie is on the recieving end of it.
Abbie is a big girl.
A grown-ass cop and we’ve established that her emotional IQ is much higher than Ichabod’s.
She can deal.
P.S. I also hope she doesn’t go off on him like some folks wants. The last thing I want is another finger-waving-attitude-having lip-smacking stereotype of an angry sassy black girl on TV.
Let Ichabod stay consistant.
I just want writers to show what Abbie’s doing and thinking apart from Ichabod’s issues; from her point of view.
Agreed. I still think that Ichabod and Abby’s relationship is one of the best on TV and Ichabod STAYS telling Abby how much fate has destined that they take on the forces of Evil, together. Neither one of them are perfect and she snipes at him just as much and won’t hesitate to call him on his crap, does no one remember the Thomas Jefferson scene?
Stop trying to find controversy where there is NONE, if you must, how about Irving’s ex wife coming in out of nowhere raging like a maniac at dude the way she initially did.
