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

My hope for him to have a future beyond Sam, beyond hunting…a future with Lisa and Ben…thinned out considerably. It didn’t go away though because when you have a hero, you always have hope. And I have a hero with Dean. But he’s so…. *rubs heart* He’s just never really had a chance to believe otherwise. And just when he gets a shot at it, his world flips sideways and he loses his balance all over again.

Veritas moves around to Sam, and I thought she was still talking to Dean the way she worded her question, but Sam’s the one that she compels the answer from.

V: So…Sam walking back into your life must’ve been a relief…how do you feel about the band getting back together?

Sam is twitching a little again…as if he’s struggling against the affects of her power…or, perhaps just trying to sound human.

Sam: What we do is hard. But we watch out for each other. And that’s it. That’s the truth.

Veritas stands up: No. No it’s not. How are you doing that? What are you? What is he?

Dean’s eyes are wide and he’s looking frantically from Sam to Veritas. Sam’s all, shut up, I’m totally telling the truth!

Veritas: I doubt anything that comes out of your mouth right now. You’re not human.

Dean’s voice is hollowed out: What?!

Veritas: You didn’t know that? Now that I believe.

In that moment, Sam cuts through his ropes, tosses Dean the knife and attacks Veritas. Dean cuts through his rope while Veritas strangles Sam—who is gasping and struggling and in obvious pain—and Dean stabs Veritas with some spear-like thing she had lying around. She screams and turns all freaky-cat-faced on him and Sam grabs one of their dog-blood-covered knives and stabs her, killing her.

Sam struggles up to his feet, gasping for breath, looking a little worse for the wear. Dean turns the knife on Sam, advancing and Sam looks legitimately scared. As well he should. Vamp blood or no vamp blood, Dean took out an entire nest. He may not be Terminator Hunter, but he is not someone to mess with. And not only that, but…I kinda think Sam really wanted Dean on his side. I’ll get back to that in a sec.

Dean: You are not my brother.

Sam (panicky): It’s me.

Dean: WHAT are you?!

Sam: You want the truth? Here it is. God’s honest. She was right. There’s something wrong with me and I’ve known it for awhile. I lied and I let you get turned ‘cause I knew there was a cure and we needed in that nest. I knew you could handle it.

Dean: Handle it?! I could have died. I could have killed Ben.

Sam: I know and that should have stopped me cold. But it didn’t. Because I can’t feel it. I am a better hunter than I ever was. Nothing scares me anymore! I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I think I need help.
