At the outset of Sleepy Hollow Season 2 Episode 2, Ichabod has a nightmare that Henry is attempting to sanctify the bond between Katrina and Abraham.
Meanwhile, Abbie is late to her first meeting with the Sheriff Reyes, a new authority figure who knew Abbie's mom because she referred to a few of the calls when Abbie was just a child.
Reyes does believe Sleepy Hollow has a problem, but not of the supernatural variety. She thinks citizens are scared and therefore being driven to do insane things.

She's also a powerful witch who can help tip the scales in the favor of the good.
