Supernatural You Can’t Handle the Truth S06E06 (CW)

Supernatural Season 6 title card

Supernatural tells the story of Sam and Dean, who are hunters. They hunt demons. This is because their mom was killed by a demon. This season, the boys discover more about their past. In the last season finale, Dean was sent straight to hell by Lilith. He had sold his soul to save Sam.

The plot of the series has evolved over time, beginning initially with the Winchester brothers, Sam and Dean, looking for their father throughout most of season one. Once they find him, the show becomes about killing Azazel, the yellow-eyed demon responsible for the death of their mother. This is accomplished, but not until after Azazel’s plans are completed and a door to Hell is opened, although only momentarily, releasing a horde of demons into the world. This event also sees the death of Sam, who is subsequently resurrected by Dean selling his soul at the end of season two. In the third season, the plot of the show focuses on trying to save Dean from his deal. Along the way, they meet a demon named Ruby, who has an interest in Sam and claims to be able to help save Dean, as well as Bela Talbot, an “acquirer” and seller of occult objects who is constantly a thorn in their side. The brothers eventually manage to track down the demon who holds Dean’s contract, a powerhouse named Lilith who also wants Sam dead. However, Sam and Ruby ultimately fail to save Dean, who is killed and sent to Hell. Season four begins with Dean, miraculously returning from Hell, awakening dazed and confused in a grave. He was apparently rescued by a supposed angel named Castiel on orders from God. Sam on the other hand, has further developed his abilities with the help of Ruby during the months that Dean has been dead. It is soon revealed that Dean was revived to help stop Lilith’s plan of breaking the 66 seals, which would let Lucifer walk free once again. As the series continues, Dean learns of Sam’s newfound ability to excercise demons using his psychic abilities. They have a heated argument, where Dean confesses to Sam: “Cas told me, if I dont stop you, he will. That means God does not want you doing what you are doing Sammy.” [From wiki]

I don’t really remember what made me stop watching this show, but a friend was extolling its virtues and I watched the fourth season premiere with her. Actually, I do remember. I really got tired of the repetitiveness of the episodes. This seems to have changed drastically since the last few seasons though. Supernatural has matured into a really good show, with its own flavor and great plots. The plot for season 4 is really good and I’m glad to see God involved.

I’ve watched and reviewed all of season 4, but I have yet to post it. If there is any interest, I will do so. There are a couple of shows which I have watched for which I haven’t posted anything yet. Those include Royal Pains and In Treatment season 2. I’m sure there are others.

Warning: spoilers ahead.

We are slowly finding out what is going on with Sam. Something hasn’t been right with him, ever since he came out of the cage.

* * * * *

Everyone is telling some waitress the truth. She takes out a gun and shoots herself.

Dean is talking to Bobby about Sam. Sam wilfully let Dean get infected by vampirism. Dean doesn’t think that Sam is his brother anymore. He thinks that it might be Satan.

A dentist drills his patient to death, when he admits to screwing his daughter. The dentist hung himself before Sam could talk to him. Dean splits up from Sam; he doesn’t want to be near him.

Dean finds out that both of them came to Harry’s House of Horns. He had a horn stolen. It was 1,000 years old. It was stolen 2 weeks ago, same day Jane died. Dean thinks it’s the Archangel’s Gabriel’s Horn of Truth.

Cass appears as soon as Dean invokes him about the horn. He didn’t come about Sam because he has nothing to offer. Dean says that he’s not Lucifer. The angels would feel if he was Lucifer. Cass doesn’t know what’s wrong with Sam. Cass says that he’s at war. Cass says that it wasn’t the Horn of Truth. Cass says that he wants to help with Sam. He’ll make some inquiries.

Sam discovers that some of the bodies have gone missing. The coroner is pretty vague. He calls Dean. Dean is drinking. All of a sudden, people start telling Dean the truth. Dean is planning on talking with Sam. He’s cursed.

In the midst of all this, Lisa calls Dean back. She tells him as long as Sam is in his life, Dean will never be happy. Lisa says that she can’t be in this with Dean anymore. Dean finds Sam and asks him the hard questions. Sam says that he froze when the vamp attacked Dean. He’s lying. How can he lie? Something is up.

It turns out that the first victim invoked Veritas, goddess of truth. She’s been giving everyone the truth in town when they’ve been invoking it. Sam thinks that Ashley Frank is her vessel or something like that. She’s the reporter. Veritas is afraid of dogs. They find some evidence of her flashing some strange eyes when there was a dog nearby, and go after her.

They break in. She’s got a big fresco of Veritas. There are a few dead bodies inside as well. With a flick of the hand, she knocks them out.

She asks Dean how he feels about Sam. He says that before yesterday, he wanted to kill him in his sleep. He realized that Sam has become like him. He says that he’s a killer and there’s no way in changing that. Veritas realizes that Sam is lying to her. She says that Dean is not human. Sam pounces on her. They manage to slay her. Dean has a knife on Sam. Sam says that he isn’t afraid anymore. He doesn’t feel it. He doesn’t know what’s wrong with him. He says that he needs help. He admits that he let the vampire turn Dean.

Dean beats the shit out of Sam.
