Sleepy Hollow may be one of the year’s most unexpected hits, but it’s got nothing on the inventiveness of one of its stars, Orlando Jones. Fans have embraced Jones due to his deep understanding of fandom and his love of social media, which he’s used to livetweet shows, including his own.

Last night, Jones dropped by the Daily Dot’s New York office to livetweet the highly anticipated premiere of Sleepy Hollow season 2. What’s better than seeing your own show for the first time? Sharing it with Twitter, of course.

Here’s how Jones experienced the evening—complete with lots of Ichabbie shipping and Ghostbusters references.

Of course it didn’t take long for the Ichabod/Abbie shipping to start.

As you can tell, last night was the zany, wonderfully off-kilter roller coaster we’ve come to expect from this show, with Abbie battling her way out of purgatory and Ichabod battling his way out of a coffin, then battling, er, himself. It’s complicated. Also, we got a naked Benjamin Franklin because that’s the kind of show this is.

While we didn’t get Frank Irving—Jones’ character on the show—rest assured he won’t be gone long:

Just the way we like it!

Thanks for hanging with us, Orlando!
