Recap: Supernatural Episode 6.06: You Can’t Handle The Truth

In the car, Dean pauses for a moment, thinking, then calls Sam and leaves him a message that he’s heading his way, but if he gets this, call him because he has some questions. And you know what else I suddenly just realized? How did Sam get to all of those places if Dean had the Impala? Maybe that’s why it took him so long at the morgue—he spent most of the time just getting there!

Anyway, Suit!Sam is talking to the first victim’s…friend? Sister? Not sure. He tells her without preamble that it wasn’t a car accident, it was suicide. He sounds almost accusatory and when the girl starts crying, he looks a tad surprised. He does, however, have the wherewithal to hand her some tissues. The friend/sister/person says that Cory, the victim, was having a hard time, and then her cat ran away, but that wasn’t the worst of it—she was convinced that her boyfriend was cheating on her and became obsessed about finding the truth.

Duh-duh-duhhh.

Dean pulls up to the house and his phone rings. He gets out and answers it—and I was totally expecting it to be Sam. It was Lisa. She’d seen that he’d called and Dean hands her the “it’s been crazy” line…then says that this is probably the worst time to talk and can they do this later?

I said (out loud to the TV…sorry hubs), “Do it NOW, Dean. Right now in this moment? This is MORE IMPORTANT than Sam.”

Lisa: You shoved my kid, Dean. How about we do this now?

God, I love her character. I know, I know…the conversation does not bode well for any future with these two, but they really designed a good character with her—a good mom, a tough cookie, and someone who saw into Dean the way no one else in his life has. Someone that shoved a mirror up in front of him and simultaneously gave him a soft place to fall.

I gotta say, even with what happened here, I still have some hope for something to shift, to change. It’s still early on. You never know, right?

D: It wasn’t like that…but I can’t explain.

L: You want to know the truth?

D: Probably not.

My stomach knotted up right about here.

L: You’ve got so much buried in there and you push it down and push it down. Do you honestly think you can go through life like that and NOT freak out? Just drink half a 5th a night and you’re good?

Dean’s whole being is tight as he listens to her.

Dean (defensive): You knew what you signed up for.

Lisa: Yeah, but I didn’t expect Sam to come back.

No kidding.

Lisa: And I’m glad he’s okay. I am. But the minute he walked through that door, I knew it was over.

Dean looks gutted. I rubbed my heart. We all knew the same thing, really. Even with hope, we knew it. *stubbornly refuses to give up hope anyway*

Lisa: You two have the most unhealthy, tangled up thing I’ve ever seen and as long as he’s in your life, you’re never going to be happy.

She looks horrified for a moment.

Lisa: That came out so much harsher than I meant.

Dean (sadly): Not your fault.

Lisa: I’m not saying don’t be close to Sam. I’m close to my sister. But if my sister got killed, I wouldn’t bring her back from the dead.

Oooooh—she thinks DEAN brought Sam back. I didn’t realize that before. Did anyone else?? That makes a bit of a difference.

Dean: Lis, me and Sam got issues, I’m not gonna lie. But you and Ben—

Lisa: Me and Ben can’t be in this with you. I’m sorry.

OUCH. Guh, that hurt. I knew it was coming, and I’m glad she did it as a mom, but MAN does that hurt for Dean’s sake.
