i think u should stop writing these from boredom.
Wow, what a horrible take on the episode. First of all, Norma didn't "run to the sheriff and rat out Norman" It came up when she was confronted in a very compromising position. What else was she supposed to say? Romero has been with them through most of their serious situations and as we all know, he doesn't necessarily play by the books, but I also wouldn't go as far to say his moral compass is completely off. She did the right thing. Saying Norma is mentally imprisoning him is a stretch. Did we totally forget that he killed Blair Watson AND his own father in a blackout? I think in her position it would have been safe to assume that maybe he did indeed kill Anika. She was never sure but the facts sure pointed toward Norman. In fact, his confidence during his and Romero's talk was a little bit unsettling, he was being cocky. Also, he didn't tell Norma he remembered every detail of the night until the very end of the episode when they were fighting. Up until that point he had been evasive and mysterious about the nights events. I also have sympathy for Norman because he has clearly developed a mental disorder after everything he's been through and cannot remember the things he's done therefore it must be incredibly hard to hold yourself accountable for something you don't (or barely) remember doing, or weren't present for, and it must be hard to feel the weight of everyones wrong doing being held against you due to previous circumstances. I won't pick a side because I empathize for both parties, but in this episode, I really feel for Norma. And one more thing, Romano is a great sheriff, he didn't mess up the weed op in the town, Zane did. Romero had to clean all that up. Duhh. Damn get your sheit together.
I'm sorry, I got really rude at the end there. Bates Motel got me all fired up!!!
This is your opinions simply based on the fact that you like Norma. She did rat her son out and does think he killed her, until the last scene.
The opinions of the author of this article are clearly biased towards Norman. And like I said, I'm not picking sides, I have empathy for both of them. But in this *specific* episode, those are my thoughts. If your son was running around killing people and then someone went missing and all clues point toward your son, how would you react? Hopefully not as insane as Norma and hopefully not by going to that party. She didn't know Romero was going to be at that party and didn't seek him out to tell him. She got caught in a very compromising position and really had no other choice.
And if Norma had gone straight to Romero in the first place, and solely to rat out Norman instead of going on a mission to do her own investigative work, then I would totally agree with you, and the author.
I'm assuming my terms are what set you off here. I don't "side" with either Norma or Norman. As a matter of fact, I think they're both quite off their rockers (where we know Norma will soon reside). I don't know how anyone could particularly side with a kid who will be killing his mother. My biggest concern here is that Norma is going to Romero with her concerns when she really has no idea what Norman is capable of at this point. While you're getting angry at me, I'm getting frustrated with Norma for putting herself in a vulnerable position. I like Norma and I see her pushing Norman's buttons. We know her future and every time she does something like that, I worry. Remember, Norman isn't sure what the hell is going on so he's easily irked. To poke the bear doesn't seem like a good idea, especially when you don't know what he may or may not be capable of doing with a good degree of certainty. And why are you telling me to get my shit together about Romero and the pot fiasco? I don't believe I even said anything about that.
Im sorry, I really didn't mean to come off angry and my use of the phrase "get your sheit together" really came off quite a bit ruder than I had meant it. Which is why I apologized for being rude. My apologies!! I like a light hearted debate in the comments section with out being rude so please excuse my terrible execution at explaining my opinion. I do agree that agree that Norma was "poking the bear" as you put it, and that is definitely what sent Norman into a rage where he lashed out at her and threw his bed around. And I also wholeheartedly agree that they are both just really mentally unstable, I would even go as far to say that Norma is a bit more so. I just had some compassion for her in this episode when it's normally for norman. I have to think about in the real world, what WOULD you do if your son were a murderer? I think most parents would agree that they would side with the law, and hate to have to make that decision. But Norma has been covering up for two murders that Norman committed, to protect him from the law and from his own mind. I had to keep that in mind when she told Romero about Norman and Anika. I just think the biggest part here is when she went to the party to "find out things for herself" and Romero caught her and said what are you doing here? She sighed and in a quivering voice said, "Norman was the last person to see Anika".. I could tell that was hard for her but it was very obvious she is running out of energy and options to help Norman, not to mention Romero has been a trusted ally for quite a few different instances, so if she were to tell anybody, he should be the one. I guess I went on my own little tangent about Romero, based off of something you said, but kind of ran in a different direction. I think it's a little unnerving about the new sherif in town. I think the town has a dark underbelly that isn't because of Romero, but is definitely being kept from getting out of hand as much as possible. I think the new guy running for sherif has a dark vibe about him.
I don't mean the blonde dude who was watching sex stuff as a good Sheriff candidate, but the new one who was in Romero's office. Kind of out of the blue. Heck, they all have dark sides to them, Romero included. I can't wait to find out what went down with Annika. That should be very interesting!
Yes thats who i'm talking about. He seems shady! And I agree, they all have a dark side. Me either!! I need to know what's on that flash drive!!
Cole tortured Sam that actually should of been acknowledged. But Dean needs another 'friend/family ' and Cole is liked so lets all pretend it never happened. What a ugly little show SPN has turned into.
I honestly love Better Call Saul. The prev episode was really cool. We got to learn more about Mike. In this one, Chuck is tryna get better and well Jimmy, he's trying. I do see what you mean Miranda, he is drowning. I did love the Kettlemans' part with Mike and then Jimmy the next day . Hilarious. I also like hin and Kim. Glad he decided to turn them over to her.
The funny thing about Margaux trying to restore Daniel's reputation is that the reputation is earned, just not in the context of his death. The truth is, Daniel did attack Emily, tried to kill her - just not when the world thought he did. Does Margaux know that? I suspect not, given she's only heard Vic's version of reality. Daniel did redeem himself in the end, so the whole thing IS tragic. But my point is, if Margaux wants 'the truth' out there, then if it all comes out, Daniel doesn't suddenly become a saint.
The number of breaks between episodes of this show is frustrating. Reading this I was thinking they were dragging the various ships out so much, then realised it is only episode 19. The breaks make it seem like the show has been on for years!I did like it from the beginning, but think the show is really just finding its groove with the characters now, as well as with those they interact with from week to week. I find the hints at a big problem with Cade a bit pointless and unnecessary, but I guess they are heading towards a season finale. And it will give Robert Patrick more to do, he doesn't get to do all that he is capable of, acting wise, in many episodes.I predict Paige will have to make some sort of choice between Walter and Drew in the finale. That will not be entertaining, I can't picture that being done well.
I think Peter is one of the returned. I'm thinking Tommy didn't kill Simon because he had to look at pictures in the attic to confirm who he was. Simon doesn't seem to remember Tommy but none of them really seem to remember their death. Tommy certainly seemed to know Rowan when he came into the church to inform her of Simons death though. Maybe Tommy is a returned too. Tony's brother seems like he is the killer that is why he seemed stunned when they showed him the pictures at the police department. I think he may have killed his brother because he knew what he was. Not sure how his mother ties in though. So not really sure if he is the killer at all. Maybe Tony really is. Tommy seems very possessive but I doubt Rowan finds the camera's. Simon seemed happy he had a daughter but it makes things more confusing now why he seemed shocked before he died when Rowan said she was pregnant! I think Victor is up to no good when he enters Annie's apartment but not sure if he would kill her because it will draw attention to Julie whom he seems to be protective of. I thought Julie was the lone survivor but It makes you wonder if she's a survivor or if she may have returned... at the time of her death?? Espcially after the conversation with officer Nikki it seems like she is the survivor. Sure makes you keep guessing!! Looking forward to next week!! So many story lines to play out here!! Almost starting to think Camille and Lena's parents could be returned since they seem to take everything so well! Or maybe everyone is since the town flood! They just come back in different stages, you never know after all. It sure gives you a reminder of "Lost"!!!! You just never know what to expect!
Teen shows.Don't know anyone who watches it.
Teen shows? Whatever have you the idea this was a teen show? Not even close.
This is definitely not a teen show.
I am not sure Debbie's decision was so rushed...I mean, she saw how this girl was OK for being a teen-mom...and I got a weird feeling about Debbie thinking that if it happens, it is going to be fine...in a way I blame Fiona, because you can be a bigger sister, without being a mom, and you can make Debbie see the pro and con. all right, at the end it would be Debbie's choice, but first you put all out there, not simply agreeing to go to the clinic. Sammi went beyond limit here. I get she is hurt, but you don't mess with the army, plus Ian is sick, vulnerable! Sean, Sean, he preaches, and then what? he kisses her...nicely done! I was happy not to see Carl.
It was hard to believe that the NYPD face a guy with a gun and blood on his shirt and they don't shoot immediately.
Or any police department nation wide these days. Sadly, it's probably because he wasn't a person of color. Good thing Ryan didn't have a tan - or had Esposito with him. :-|
I just know jimmy/ saul is gonna get screwed over by his bother and that satanic law firm!!
Agreed. Sad isn't it ? "Satanic" had me cracking up ! Kim did tell Jimmy that if it turns out to be a big case it will have to be HHM instead of Jimmy + Chuck McGill. Even though I like her, for a second I thought she was going to warn Howard.
