They also reveal that we’ll get to see Abigail interact with Ichabod’s wife/badass witch Katrina. “In typical Sleepy fashion, we’ll learn that Abigail had a secret life that involved Katrina Crane. (Ooh, maybe Mrs. Adams hung out with the Sisterhood of the Radiant Heart from time to time?)”

Meanwhile EW reports that Beauty And The Beast‘s Max Brown has been cast as “a powerful and mysterious new ally known, at first, only as Orion—a charismatic soldier who possesses a game changing weapon.”
