Imagino plus indicative?

Imagino que vosotros ________ la verdad. I imagine that you had told the truth.HINT: Conjugate "decir" in El Pretérito Pluscuamperfecto

Imagining always takes the indicative, or is this case specific?

Hola Allison,

Yes, "Imagino que..." takes the indicative. It is very similar to "Creo que..." (I believe that...) which also takes the indicative.
