After a string of violent incidents — when Hyde gives Shane a brutal beating, or when he mouths off to the local authorities, or when he vandalizes a few lockers at the high school — even the people who care most about him begin to worry that he’s falling back on his old ways. But Hyde’s best friend Jekyll swears that there are other reasons for his behavior and that he will calm down soon enough.
When someone starts pulling dangerous pranks and causing thousands of dollars in damage and inflict grievous injury, it’s Mark Hyde that the authorities are looking for. And when the problems get worse, when the vandalism escalates to theft and the pranks lead to deaths instead of a few injuries, it’s Mark Hyde the police intend to take down for the crimes, unless Aimee and Shane can find the real culprits.
But Hyde isn’t making it any easier for them. It’s almost as if he’s out to prove the cops right. As if he expects to get blamed for everything going on in town. A prank is a prank, but the troubles in Sleepy Hollow have turned fatal, and it looks like Mark Hyde is taking the fall for the mischief.
