True. Dylan could go good or bad. Obviously he had a lousy upbringing. His dad is out of the picture because Norma married Sam--maybe he didn't give a damn anyway, but---Sam obviously wasn't good to them, at least not to Dylan. Dylan's mother is a smothering incestuously vibed nutcase who may well be capable of cold blooded murder. Dylan knows this. You leave my dad; you probably murdered your second husband for the insurance and you're a little "too close" with my little brother who's more than willing to bash my head in with a meat tenderizer. Dylan hasn't exactly had healthy role models. Under the bravado, you can tell he's hurt that Norma skipped town without a word. He could turn out to be villanous or heroic. If Norma and Norman don't decide that he's a threat to be eliminated.
