I'm guessing we might be better off next season doing just one thread for the whole season, as these don't seem to get much traction. Norman getting into taxidermy cracks me up. I guess it's the foreshadowing of him stuffing his mom (as in the movie). I'm sure Norma is going to love it when Norman brings that dog home. The guy that plays Emma's dad reminds me of an American actor and it was jolting to hear the accent. I thought, 'man, he does that accent well'. Then, doing some googling, I realized it wasn't the guy I thought it was. It's the guy who played Professor Quirrell in the first Harry Potter movie. So, Norma was going off to change, rather than get the trimmers their rooms. That just seemed odd to me. It wouldn't take them long to get out of the van, so they'd have to wait. Of course, it's all about Norma, so that isn't surprising. I did like the fact that she was trying to reach out to her other son a bit. You could see he had such conflicting emotions going on about that. Probably good that she didn't check them in, though, because next episode, the place will be crawling with cops. Speaking of, Norma just doesn't know when to quit. They had her looking completely out of control this episode (I guess to make the psychologist correct). Going to the sheriff to get him to back her in the election seemed oddly out of character. I wonder what his deal is, how he plays into all this stuff. We hear that Gil has a big boss. So, another layer of bad guys. I wonder about the dude working "for" Dylan. He gave Dylan a recommendation to not take the trimmer guy in the van. Dylan was probably smart to ignore that recommendation, as he couldn't know the guy's motivation. Dumping him later could be bad, depending on how well this guy 'trims'. However, Dylan asserting his authority when he did is good for the other trimmers, as they will now see Dylan as an authority, as well as the guy who works for Dylan. Dylan blindly following him is a bad idea if he wants to have any sort of control. So, Shelby's autopsied corpse on the bed - that was a shocker. Did the guy from room 9 dig up the corpse? Had Shelby not been buried yet? Norma is just an idiot. Following the guy just seems like a bad idea. I'm guessing room 9 guy is looking for the journal that Norman has.
