So, retcon time? The show is really steering into the reboot curve now. We had even more flashback clip moments and the show changed Crane's origin.
I'm not even sure how the stone was even relevant in the past or why it was needed now.
Crane and the Horseman never fell on the stone in the original flashbacks and it was the blood of the Horseman mixing with Crane that made Crane immortal, because the Horseman was made an immortal by Moloch. Headless is supposed to be "Death" after all.
They couldn't kill the Horseman in the past even if they had fought on the stone, which is why they chained him up and buried him at sea. When the Horseman was resurrected Crane did too.
So what was the point of being sent by Washington to be sacrificed on the stone? Crane was already told he was supposed to try and kill the baddest dude the British had so the task possibly being suicide shouldn't have been a surprise.
Then Dreyfuss used the Horseman and Crane for some reason. The Horseman is the true immortal so why does Dreyfuss need Crane? Dreyfuss could just mix his own blood or take it from the Horseman. Which leads to the most ridiculous part, why did the Horseman just walk up and kneel down with no hassle at all? Two episodes ago he was all about getting heads but now doesn't care even when Crane is involved and sat next to him.
Dreyfuss and his cool assistant could be a good partnership if the overall story wasn't so poorly executed. And if Jobe didn't keep being so easily defeated. At least they remembered to use the lantern again.
