We asked, Sleepy Hollow fans. Showrunner Clifton Campbell answered. And when you weren’t satisfied with that explanation, we asked again.
We’re talking, of course, about Daniel’s phone call immediately following Abbie’s FBI resignation in the midseason finale, “Novus Ordo Seclorum.” In case you’re fuzzy, this should jog your memory:
MYSTERY MAN: You were told not to call this number, Agent Reynolds.
DANIEL: Unless I had a problem, and this rates. The asset we were cultivating, we just lost her.
Late last year, Campbell told TVLine that Agent Foster — and not Abbie — was the subject of a FBI bigwig’s earlier reference to a “diamond in the rough.” But what about that “asset,” many of you asked?
“I’ll just say this: That is definitely explored more,” Jessica Camacho tells TVLine. “That conversation leads into Reynolds’ approach to Abbie when she comes back.”
Not wanting to say too much, the Sleepy newbie only added, “That is the tip of the iceberg. That’s the tip of where we’re going.”
Sleepyheads, are we a bit more satisfied with this answer? Sound off in the comments!
