Dean looks like he’s trying to match up in his mind that this really could just be Sam, but can’t seem make all the puzzle pieces fit. He says thanks and Sam turns away from him, any emotion on his face instantly gone. At first I thought, you evil little bastard. But in retrospect I realize it wasn’t an evil loss of emotion…it was just that he didn’t have to keep the act up anymore. It was empty. Utterly empty.
Back at the motel, they’re going through Cory’s box and figure out it’s all stuff to summon a god. Cory wanted the truth, so she got Veritas, but she opened a door she couldn’t close and so anyone in the town that asks for the truth gets slammed with it (a very dark, twisted version of it in some cases) until they kill themselves and become a tribute to the goddess.
Sam’s like, “We have to take her out, or you’re on the menu.”
Dean: So what do we know besides Crazy Cat Lady?
Sam: Dogs are her Achilles heel.
Through some rather quick deduction, they realize she was an attention whore—very “speak the truth to the masses” kind of gal. Dean, clever guy, puts two and two together and thinks: News Lady! So…they head to the news station, pay off a security guard (perhaps by using Dean’s truth curse against him, who knows) and steal News Lady’s computer.
Thus begins an endless night of footage watching. Start out both watching, perched on the edge of the bed, leaning towards the computer screen. Then…Sam’s watching and Dean’s up at the head of the bed eating chicken and saying that News Lady is creepy. “I mean the hair alone….”
It’s morning and Sam is STILL watching while Dean is at the table…only now he’s eating pizza. Dean’s bed is messed up, but it doesn’t look as if Sam has even moved beyond shucking his outer shirt. The dude is a machine. At last he gets to footage of her wigging out because of a barking dog and they catch some electric blue in her eyes. Eureka!
That night, they follow her little red Corvette (at least, I think it was a Corvette) from the news station to her very modern, normalish looking house. Dean holds up two silver knives. Sam holds up a jar of dog’s blood.
Dean: Do I even want to know where you got that?
Sam: Probably not.
Sam dips the knives in the dog’s blood and they’re good to go. They sneak in and look around and except for being decorated with lots of felinesque statues and whatnot, it’s pretty normal-looking all around. Until, that is, they get to the master bathroom. Veritas’ House Of Horrors, ya’ll.
Dead bodies in bits and pieces—some whole—are on trays or hanging from hooks. Staring at this in a bit of shock (though…I think they should have been prepared to see this or worse, with what they knew they were after, but oh well) they’re caught off-guard when Veritas shows up behind them, flicking them across the room with a god-like wiggle of fingers and they both slam hard on the ground, unconscious.
