Sam asks, "You think this vanishing truck ran him off the road?" and Cassie furrows some more at hearing this ridiculous proposition voiced aloud. She tells them she's "a little skeptical about all this ghost stuff or whatever it is you guys are into" and Dean chuckles, "Skeptical? If I remember, I think you said I was 'nuts.'" Jensen Ackles and Jared Padelecki are coming off like freaking Alec Guinness and Laurence Olivier comparatively, what with their using more than one facial expression per line delivered. This riveting conversation is interrupted by Cassie's mom, who is white, rushing in the house and acting shifty. Cassie introduces Dean and Sam, and Dean immediately asks if they can talk to her for a little while. She stares him down and tells him she isn't up to that right now, and then leaves.
Cut to a field, where we pan down and along the ground to see the wreckage from another car crash. The wheels on the car still spin, and then we pan up to find another dead black man at the wheel, his eyes still open and his head covered in blood. Pretty graphic. But just in case we were sincerely moved by this horrific depiction of racial violence, we pan over to a ridge overlooking the carnage and find Fat Joe Truck flexing on the scene once again. Then it vanishes into the night air. The next day, at the scene of the crash, Whitey blathers on to Cassie about how much Dead Guy Jimmie will be missed. Cassie is wearing another totally improbable outfit for Cape Girardeau, a skin-tight black leather jacket. Whitey refers to Dead Guy Jimmie as one of "the town's best" and then Cassie retorts, "Our best are dropping like flies!" My husband asks, "Are they talking about the town's 'best' black guys? 'Cause that's sorta racist." I reply, "Racism is the least of our problems here, honey. Let's talk storyboarding first." Cassie and Whitey keep fighting, Cassie tells Whitey he should close that section of road, and Whitey responds, "Close the main road? The only road in and out of town?" Where exactly do they live? On an island? Dean and Sam saunter up asking questions about whether the cops "checked for additional denting," a phrase that makes no sense. Whitey wants to know who these dorks are. Cassie tells him, and then starts playing the race card: "Mayor, would you close the road if the victims were white?" Whitey responds, "I'm the last person you should talk to like that. Why don't you ask your mother." Um, last time I checked, proof of non-racism usually doesn't depend on a big secret someone else is keeping for you.
