Storyline

In a lonely road in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, a black man driving a car is chased and hit by a truck, falling off-road and dying. His daughter Cassie Robinson calls her former boyfriend Dean and asks him to investigate the mysterious accident. Sam and Dean see that three Afro-Americans and the Caucasian Major of the town were killed in weird accidents on the same road. When the truck threatens Cassie, her Caucasian mother Mrs. Robinson tells a tragic racist murder that happened thirty years ago, and the brothers realize that they have to fight against a hatred spirit in a ghost truck. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

It is stated that the story takes place in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. However, the license plates on all the cars are from Mississippi. This was perhaps a necessary change due to the fact that it was snowing during time of shooting and it doesn't usually snow in Mississippi, especially not in May, which was the month in which this story took place.

Far too preachy
1 October 2006 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

I liked the fact that the series tackled the issue of racism, and had felt that they would given the subtle social and political subtext of the show.

The message in the episode is far from subtle though, with the references to racism and the Civil Rights movement in nearly every scene, to the point of lecturing. I'm not defending racism, of course, just think this is a bit overbearing. Final product is rather disappointing with the social commentary and "supernatural" elements existing unevenly. In part the show is "Burning Mississippi" but then swithces abruptly into "The Highwayman". Still I'm glad that they finally gave Dean a romantic interest, and concur with the other viewer that they should keep Cassie as a recurring character. She is a good complement to Dean personality.
