[after the ghost truck threatens Cassie]
Dean Winchester: You didn't see who was drivin' the truck?
Cassie Robinson: It seemed to be no one. Everything was moving so fast. And then it was just gone. Why didn't it kill us?
Dean Winchester: Whatever's controlling the truck wants you afraid first.

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.
