You can see the relative reputation of the direct children of each node, by selecting "Best First" under Note Configuration in your User Settings. (Of course, Anonymous Monk can't do this.)
Yes, you can see relative reputation, but you know neither the differences in reputation nor the endpoints of the scale. A thread could have only negatively rated replies, such that the top sorted node is the least negative.
That's unlikely, but you can't know for sure.
