Coudl this be the start of Crane's downfall in the comics? In one issue, he's revealed to be a spy for the Adversary and is put down by Bigby and Cinderella. Maybe he has something to do with this?
Considering there is supposed to be a 20 year difference between the game and the comics, it may be a little early for that. However during the trailer we did see Bigby threatening Ichabod so we shall have to wait and see.
