Character Role Analysis

Katrina

Even with the pretty clear love triangle going on in "Sleepy Hollow," it's still kind of a stretch to call Katrina the romantic interest. But we're going to shout-out to her anyway because Ichabod and Brom vie for her hand in marriage. And hey, maybe Brom actually likes her—who knows? Still, we're pretty sure there's nothing romantic about Ichabod's interest in Katrina. All he's really interested in is the cold, hard cash—and sweet, warm pancakes.
