Re: Bates Motel seemed like it's going 2 suck, & then it didn't.(Spoil

After having his conversation with "Mother" that resulted in Norman going to the Deputy's house to get the belt back, I'm starting to think that maybe Norma didn't kill her husband, but that "Mother" did.
I think you may be on to something there. Norman clearly doesn't remember that he tried to cave in Dylan's skull with the meat tenderizer. He's clearly having breaks from reality. The very first thing we saw of Norman was him waking up in bed with the tv on and he was fully clothed. Then he finds dad. Perhaps that's why Norma looked so very uninvolved and unsurprised when Norman came running to her crying. She knew Norman had done him in.

I'm starting to suspect that's why Norma's been coddling him so bad and not wanting him to be on his own (so he can't off anybody else). Next week's promo shows that Norma is fully aware that Norman is talking to imaginary people.
Excellent hook for next week. I know I'll be back. Maybe Norma isn't above having sonny boy do a little dirty work for her when needed? Just prod sonny a little bit and.....

Best disaster animal relief charity around. Don't forget our animal friends. Donate, train to be a volunteer, or be a foster parent for a displaced pet.
