Storyline

After Dylan and Norman calmly suggest to her that she meet with her brother Caleb, Norma has a panic attack and runs off. She has nowhere to go but checks into a motel to sort herself out. She buys a new car and goes to a bar where a pick-up doesn't work out as planned. She finally ends up at James Finnegans' house where he tries to get to the root of her problem. Back home, a traumatized Norman has a blackout but Dylan sees him in full Norma-mode, dressed as their mother and making breakfast for him in the kitchen. Elsewhere, Sheriff Romero is recovering in the hospital from the attempt to kill him and gets a visit from Marcus Young. Written by garykmcd
