Tread Perilously's Crossover month finally delivers on the long-promised look at the Bones and Sleepy Hollow crossover: "The Resurrection in the Remains" and "Dead Men Tell No Tales."
When the Bones team uncovers a headless corpse from the 18th Century next to the fresh corpse they were called to investigate, Abby Mills and Ichabod Crane make the drive from Sleepy Hollow to "assist" Brennan and Booth while also claiming rights to the dry bones. And once they arrange for transport, Brennan and Booth must help them uncover a 250-year-old mystery in order to stop Draugir from killing everyone in town.
Erik finally experiences Sleepy Hollow while Justin recalls why he even suggested this crossover in the first place all those years ago. The pair get lost in the weeds discussing "chummy" character crossovers. Justin considers why The Simpsons lost ground with the younger generations. Erik declares Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven Way to be one of the great literary characters. The clash of tones between the two shows sets the episodes apart. Americana proves to be a great source of comedy, as does Sleepy Hollow's Shannyn Sossamon. Justin offers one key pet peeve about Sleepy Hollow and the motion picture Flatliners becomes surprisingly important.
