Abbie and Ichabod had to learn to work together while Ichabod discovered the ways of the modern world so that they could bring stop the coming apocalypse as they are the two biblical witnesses noted in the bible to do the trick.
It's revealed during Sleepy Hollow Season 1 that Abbie and Ichabod, although born generations apart and coming from completely different environment, have a long family history that intertwines them. Abbie's great great aunt was there for the birth of Ichabod's only son and attempted to raise him when his wife Katrina was taken away due to accusations that she was a witch.
Upon awakening in Sleepy Hollow Season 1, Ichabod learns Katrina was a witch, that she's still able to communicate from purgatory and that she had son. He was away at battle while she was pregnant and have birth after he was believed to be dead.
Unbeknownst to either parent, Ichabod or Katrina by way of purgatory, this son was buried alive by witches and later resurrected, becoming one of the horseman of the apocalypse: WAR. As WAR he found the witnesses, and thus his father, and began to aid ushering in the apocalypse to punish the world for its many sins.
Sleepy Hollow Season 1 ended with both Ichabod and Abbie in perilous circumstances, unable to continue the fight.
