What I want is something that can’t happen. I want you to be happy and I want you to be well. I want Mom to be alive again. I want both of you to…I want you guys to meet my daughter. I want to have Christmases together, okay?
i feel so bad because all i do with my life is obsess over multiple tv shows and their casts and i feel like a 19 going on 20 yr old loser who hasn’t even done much with her life and i see my close friends and other kids my age going to school and working and going out with their friends and then theres me just sitting in my room 24/7 on my computer obsessing over actors/actresses and films and shows and i hate myself.
I mean the episode description was “Norman comes home.” Sums it up pretty good right there. Home is where Norma is. Now they’re together forever like it was meant to be since season one. Since the writers stated they knew he would die since day one. So they already had it mapped out and it was done perfectly.
Does anyone who watches this damn show understand that Norman is NOT Norman right now, or when he’s committed most of his murders? One stroll through Facebook comments and tweets and you can see ignorance on full display. You don’t even have to like Norman to understand that? That was the whole reveal of Psycho-he was never only Norman after killing his mother. Sometimes both, but usually only Mother. I know the show has expanded and changed some things, but the general premise is still that Norman, by himself, is gone. It’s honestly really damn sad because Norman, as himself, is a good person with a good heart. But he’s sick and needs to be in an institution being heavily monitored 24/7. He’s not a cold-blooded murderer who belongs in prison.
I know it’s probably not an accurate or honest portrayal of DID but I’m just basing it on how it’s existing in the show’s universe. Norman literally has no idea what’s going on right now. He’s not there. I don’t get why that’s going over people’s heads (the idea that Norma was a strong contributor to his current condition also goes over people’s heads, so I shouldn’t be surprised).
I know Norman isn’t perfect and he’s made serious mistakes, but to call him a genuinely evil, bad person is dishonesty. I mean, I have such a soft spot for Norman both in the Bates Motel universe and in the Psychoverse. Probably my all-time favorite fictional character and to see so many people watch this show and reduce the character to some crazy criminal who murders for the fuck of it has kinda gotten to me.
Anyway, I hope we get to see Norman one last time. I seriously hope he doesn’t die but I’m not holding my breath. If I had to pick a route, I’d hope for a mercy killing by Dylan. Maybe one where Norman actually asks him to do it. I can’t see Norman beating any of his legal issues (because no one has pieced his insanity together yet besides his lawyer who’ll have to prove it). What I absolutely DON’T want is for Dylan to murder him because of anger or something. Dylan is Norman’s last family member and he seems to understand Norman’s condition, even if he can’t quite name it. I need the show to end sympathetically for Norman, whether he dies or not. It’ll make me happy. Too much Norman hate, and I really don’t think we’re supposed to hate him.
