One of the pitfalls of actually providing the answers to a mystery is that, well, there goes the mystery.  And, in the worst cases, along with that mystery goes any sense of urgency, of danger and sometimes basic interest in the story.  In “Necromancer” Sleepy Hollow – a show already familiar with taking risks on a weekly basis - took what might be its biggest risk yet.  Pulling back the curtain on who or what the Headless Horseman is could have taken the air out of a story that was hurtling along just fine, thank you.  Instead of deflating things, however, it only added another dimension to the ongoing story and, for the first time, made Katrina relevant in a way she hadn’t been until now.
