Really? I interpreted it as just the opposite. Norma wouldn't let him go out with Bradley, but she didn't mind letting him go out with the "competition" who at most will live to be 27.
So the deep fried hanging dude at the end....this was the town taking care of the perpetrator who set fire to Bradley's father's warehouse "in its own way"?
Like I said, Norma and little Norma may fit in quite nicely. I hope Norma isn't the one who set fire to Bradley's father's warehouse to keep his pretty daughter occupied and away from the hotel. She didn't look too shocked. Gosh.....that's terrible. The woman is weird
