Very good episode. Bit by bit, we are shown how things are evolving among all characters. Norma gets to know who really is Mr. Ford-he helps you and is your friend but... you must reciprocate when he needs you. The sheriff knows that Norman had intimate relations with Ms. Watson the day she died and tells Norman; Norman gets angry and dismiss what the sheriff is saying-what will he do to stop the sheriff telling his mother? Dylan is between two fires-Mr. Ford and Zane-will he kill Zane as his sister told him to do whatever to him? And here I go, like it was said in "Queer as Folk", the British version-"this is getting creepy". Norma gets upset because Norman is angry with her and acts like a teenager-stomps her feet and goes back to her new lover. At first, she can not function with her new lover thinking about "poor, lonely Norman-the baby who can not function without her" (ha) . Norman gets frustrated and prohibits his mother to enter into his room-how pathetic-he wants to punish her-the poor and lonely Norma. (In these scenes, we are seeing what is called a" symbiotic relationship"-one can not function well without the other-both depends on each other to survive) At the end, Norman gets abducted-how will Norma react? Remember, it is Norman who is in danger-the half of the symbiotic equation-will she kill whoever dared to interfere and abducted her "world". Like I said, this is getting creepy and... very interesting!
