WARNING: Spoilers. Very, very upsetting spoilers.

Sleepy Hollow just capped off Season 3 with a major move that will forever change the series.

In its Friday season finale, the show bid farewell to Lt. Abbie Mills — and, subsequently, star Nicole Beharie — whose on-screen bond with Tom Mison’s Ichabod Crane drove the first three seasons of the show.

In true heroic fashion, the character essentially sacrificed herself to save the world.

“The finale featuring the tragic death of Abbie Mills was a very dramatic ending and a bold move for the show, but Sleepy Hollow has always been known for its shocking finales. We feel we provided a wonderfully poignant conclusion for Abbie and showed some of the best moments between the Witnesses that we’ve seen on-screen,” Sleepy Hollow producers said in a statement via Fox. “We thank Nicole Beharie for bringing Abbie and Sleepy Hollow to life. We are currently discussing Season Four, and should the series be picked up for another season, we have some exciting scenarios and new avenues we want to explore.” Read more…
