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

Henry Standing Bear: [Speaking of Aaron Two Rivers, the Heyoka wannabe] You can never tell when he is telling the truth.
Sheriff Walt Longmire: He's just like everybody else, then. At least he's up front about it.

Masterful Storytelling
17 December 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This episode is what will make me continue to watch this series. It's had a few bumps, but this is so well done. A psychic woman is murdered. Her influence seems to have permeated the tribes. She has a brother who has taken on the role of a contrary (Remember "Little Big Man?"). He is fascinating man who has issues with alcohol. He is almost impossible to talk to. There are people in the community who have an interest, including Branch's nasty father, the land developer. The Sheriff's debate finally takes place but there are extenuating circumstances. We find out a lot more about several characters going forward. Good pacing and some nice moments, particularly the interview that takes place between Walt and Aaron.
