Trivia

The title of this episode comes from a poem by Emily Dickinson that opens with the line "Tell all the truth but tell it slant...." The poem suggests that the complete and full truth may be so bright and dazzling that it would strike a person blind if you encountered it all at once. Instead, you might have to edge up to the truth, circle around it, to be able to take it in. See more »

Quotes

Sheriff Walt Longmire: I need to find her brother, Aaron.
Victoria 'Vic' Moretti: Why?
Sheriff Walt Longmire: He rode past my cabin this morning. Seems strange to have your tribe's contrary warrior living in an abandoned building.
Henry Standing Bear: It would be strange, especially since the last actual contrary warrior died in 1974.
Sheriff Walt Longmire: What does that make Aaron?
Henry Standing Bear: A pest... with pretensions

Powerful Episode
20 September 2013 | by (Southern California) – See all my reviews

I've only watched a few episodes of Longmire but I've enjoyed what I've seen so far. There was a mini marathon today and I got a chance to see "Tell It Slant". I was hooked as soon as Gary Farmer showed up. I knew this would be something special. Without providing any spoilers, let me just say that the scene in which Walt interviews Aaron about his sister's death is one of the more powerful pieces of film I've seen on television. I was so immersed in the emotion that I believed completely in the characters. The exchange between Gary Farmer and Robert Taylor, the lighting, and the filming were extraordinarily well done. This will definitely not be the last episode I watch!
