    Not to keep the thread derailed but if I hadn't been out of work for a while and been home during the day, I would have never have seen these alerts. Yet at least once a week during the afternoon, I would get kicked out of a recording for one of these tests. Point being, just because you haven't seen them doesn't mean they aren't happening.

    I didn't think it was so obvious that she would be killed, except for that I had stumbled on this thread too soon and guessed that it would happen =P Sure, once she was saying that he couldn't tell anyone he was there it was suspicious, but I don't think they were dangling it in our face that he was going to kill her.

    It would be a really good twist if he didn't actually kill her. I don't know that he was tall enough to slit her throat so easily and he didn't have blood on his hands, though he may be taller than I remember and the rain could've washed his hands.

    It did seem weird though how seductive she was being. I mean it wasn't super obvious or anything, but she didn't seem to act like one of my teachers would act if I was at their place (and I have been before with a few other students preparing for a competition when I was in high school). She was changing really slowly and the door was wide open. Obviously that doesn't warrant killing her, but it was a little pervy since he's a student.

    I've really loved this show. It's manipulative at times, but I still feel like the writing and acting is really enjoyable. I hope it gets renewed!

    The teacher seducing Norman, or looking like she was going to, fits the formula of many earlier movies. In the original Psycho, Janet Leigh's character was a "bad girl". The opening scene had her in bed with a guy and then she stole lots of cash from her employer before going on the run. In all the various kids at summer camp slasher films it usually was the ones to ran off to have sex or get high that were killed first.
    This has Norman's teacher fit the formula, she had to do something bad first. This makes Bradley look likely not to survive long ( depending on how fast they increase Norman's body count) and Emma sticking around a long time.
