  • Magnus is suspected of killing the big guy and MacRae and the Sanctuary heads are leading a witch hunt to bring her down. They bring in the Triad a group of psychics to discover the truth, but there seems to be an agenda hidden somewhere by someone.

    • Will: Do we know who did this? Declan: I'm still looking into it. Will: But you have some idea. Declan: We … we should talk when you're settled. Will: Why? What's goin' on? Who did this!? Declan: It's too early to know for sure, but so far all the evidence I've gathered points to Helen Magnus.

    • Helen: Someone did this to me. Someone deliberately erased my memories. Will: How? Helen: I don't know! Aren't you listening to me!? I'm sorry. I … I just … I'm just as confused as you are. Someone's trying to set me up. Someone's trying to make it look like I killed … Will: Alright, listen to me, listen to me. Okay? We're gonna get to the bottom of this, I promise.

    • Kate: Come on, let's look around. Get those freaky eyeballs of yours into action. Will: Have you noticed Magnus acting strangely lately? Kate: (scoffs) You're asking me? I mean, she's a weirdo pretty much all the time. Will: Declan said that the Big Guy … told him that she was startin' to slip. Kate: Like Amy Winehouse slip? Will: (scoffs) I don't know if screaming at paparazzi is quite her speed. It's more like little things.

    • Will: This is ridiculous. Declan: Look, if you can provide me with an alternate theory that works, I'm happy to listen. Until then, I gotta proceed based on the evidence Will: And what does that mean? Declan: The other Sanctuary heads have charged me with gathering evidence against her. Will: What is this, a witch hunt? Declan: We wanna get to the truth, just like you. Will: After all she's done for you, huh? Declan: That's not all. They voted to send in a triad. Will: A triad? Declan: A team of investigators uniquely qualified for situations like this. Will: And what makes them so "uniquely qualified"? Declan: They're telepaths. They're going to get inside her mind.

    • (Will momentarily stares at Emma, a telepath) Emma: (blushing smile) I'm … flattered, Will. Will: (sighs) This is gonna be tough.

    Trivia (2)

    • Veritas, the title of the episode, is Latin for truth. In Roman mythology, Veritas was the goddess of truth and the mother of virtue.

    • Discontinuity: When Will checks the email Magnus sent to Kate, he immediately focuses on a minor spelling error, telling Kate "No, Magnus is a spelling Nazi. She'd never do that." However, there are two glaring grammatical errors in the earlier email Magnus sent the Police Chief asking him to delete the surveillance video : "It has come to attention" instead of "It has come to my attention"; and "all will be explain soon" as opposed to "all will be explained soon." It is highly unlikely that a "Spelling Nazi" would commit two such obvious errors - even with an "Ozone Beetle" in her brain.

    Allusions (2)

    • Kate: Hello, McFly!? You can't go back there. The amazing Kreskins will read your mind and find out where Magnus is. Kate first alludes to the Back To The Future movies, in which Biff Tannen would knock on George McFly's head, saying "Hello? Hello? Anybody home? Huh? Think, McFly." Next, referring to the telepathic triad, she alludes to The Amazing Kreskin - a "mentalist" who appeared regularly on North American television in the 1960's and '70's. However, although Kreskin made "predictions" based on observations, he never claimed to have paranormal or clairvoyant powers.

    • Kate: Like Amy Winehouse slip? Kate is referring to the antics of the English soul singer who has become more famous for her raging addictions and public embarrassments than her talent.
