Jody: I stopped at this little café to get a coffee, and I see Norman sitting in the back. But he wasn't alone. It was a young blonde woman. I didn't see her face. And I didn't think anything of it at first. And I was walking over to say hello. And they started arguing in such a way that it stopped me.

Claire Spencer: I want you to answer one question. Did you have anything to do with her disappearance?

Norman: Yes. I had an affair with her. And when I tried to break it off... she became unstable. She came out here to the house. She threatened to kill herself... or you. I didn't think she'd go through with any of it. But then she... She disappeared.
