Imagine living in a place where everyone told you the truth – all the time.
Hmmmmmm – after this week’s episode I am not so sure.
It starts off this week with poor hapless waitress Jane, who shoots herself.
Now, if I had heard that the cook had added his own ingredient to the clam chowder,
that the nice old lady had run over a homeless man,
that the sweet little girl wanted to murder her mother,
that the greasy looking waiter thought I was creepy, and that my sister thought I was pathetic, all within a short space of time, I might have gone a little nuts.
But Veritas is in town, and once you ask for the truth she gives it to you – then requires a payment. You – for dinner.
Who is Veritas? She was the daughter of Saturn in Roman mythology, and went on to become the mother of Virtue. She is believed to have hid in a holy well. So she was a bit odd as well apparently.
Trivia: Veritas’s name is used in a famous Latin quotation: ‘In vino veritas’ (‘The truth is in wine’), therefore a drunk person tells the truth.
The boys (TBs from here on in) hit town after a bunch of unusual deaths. While they are looking around, the local dentist drills a patient to death.
After what the patient was telling him – truthfully (oh, that’s funny) I would have done the same. But I think I might reschedule that dentist appointment for now.
While all this is going on Dean and Bobby are trying to figure out what is wrong with Sam. I have to admit Sam is creepy at times.
When he interviews the waitress’s sister, he really goes for the jugular.
Creepy yet sexy. It’s nice to see Sam be something other than – well nice.
At first TBs are way off track, thinking that maybe Gabriel’s Horn of Truth is to blame for all the honesty going around. After putting in a call to Cas that theory goes out the window.
Mysteriously ALL the bodies seem to have disappeared from the morgue except for the drill happy dentist.
So now things gets interesting. Dean goes to a bar – okay I know, nothing unusual there. But he mutters that he just wants to know the truth. We all know he’s talking about Sammy. But truth comes from surprising places. The barmaid confides that she can’t get pregnant, her marriage is a sham, and she has been sniffing drugs.
Too much information if you ask me.
On the way out a customer flashes Dean with her newly acquired breasts.
Yeah it’s Dean, so he takes another look.
This is a bit suspicious huh?
Dean thinks so, so he calls Bobby to see if this truth telling works via phone lines. It does.
And what follows is either hilarious or disturbing. I’m not sure which.
Dean also talks to Lisa – she spits out a few truths of her own, and that’s all folks. She calls it quits.
I had a serious lump in my throat for Dean. I know that it doesn’t make sense in the context of the show for him to settle down happily with a family – BUT – a part of me wanted the happy ending.
Meanwhile Sam has found out that one of the dead people has slaughtered her kitty and kept the skull. Gross.
TBs – yes Dean asks Sam for the truth, and Sam’s answer seems to make him feel better. I’m not buying it.
Turns out creepy kitty killer girl was using the skull to summon Veritas so she could learn the truth about her cheating man. Seriously, some women just need to trust their own instincts.
Veritas’s house looks great ( I want a staircase just like hers), until you get to her kitchen I guess you’d call it.
Ah – there are all those missing bodies. And what are all those preserving jars full of?
After slamming TBs around she ties them up.
Get your minds outta the gutter !!!!!!!!
Seems they’re about to become dinner. As an appetizer she munches away on a dead guys tongue.
Seems lying makes it sweet to eat. Where do the writers come up with these ideas?
TBs aren’t about to be the main course and they deal to this Goddess. But not before she flashes some seriously scary teeth.
Before she lies dead on the floor though the Goddess had some surprising news. Sam hasn’t been telling the truth.
He’s not human she says – which opens up a whole lot of questions.
Questions that have Dean right back where he started, with a head full of doubts about his brother.
What’s wrong with Sammy?
The end was a little hard to watch. I will admit to some hiding behind the hands with fingers slightly apart for peeking.
But it looked…
I’m sorry but Dean beating the crap out of Sam…
Now that was just hard to watch.
