'Sleepy Hollow': Watch the first 8 minutes of 'The Sin Eater' now

sleepy-hollow-the-sin-eaters.jpgIt's been a long, hard two and a half weeks without a brand-new episode of FOX's addictive hit "Sleepy Hollow," but our national nightmare will end on Monday (Nov. 4) when the bananas-crazy drama returns to our TV screens with "The Sin Eater."

And you don't even have to wait until Monday for some new footage! To whet our appetites for more, FOX has released the first eight minutes of the new episode online. They are hilarious, then sweet, then super-creepy -- essentially a perfect encapsulation of why the show is so appealing to begin with.

Behold: Abby ( Nicole Beharie) takes Ichabod ( Tom Mison) to a baseball game, where she shares the secret to her favorite stress-relieving activity: trash talk. Ichabod shows a surprising proclivity for it, though his insults are a little more high brow than we modern folk are used to. The episode features the debut of "Fringe" star John Noble in his new recurring role.

Watch the clip below. "Sleepy Hollow" airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
