    I meant the episode was playing it up the ambiguity as to whether it was a true story or not until the ending. Or I could be remembering the episode incorrectly and it was never played that way, but for some reason I thought they couldn't figure out if it was a true story and that was part of the episode.

    At the end, Archer or Trip ask T'Pol if the story actually was true, and she just answers with a vague "you asked me to tell you a story." They then jump to T'Pol in her quarters with the purse. Whatever ambiguity there is is short lived.

    ^Yes. It was played as ambiguous, but many viewers remember that ambiguity while forgetting that it was pretty solidly resolved at the end, which was why I offered that reminder.
