With Jake Abernathy expecting her to meet him at midnight with the $150,000 Norma goes to Sheriff Romero for help. He assures her that he will take care of it and that she has nothing to worry about. Not quite assured, Norma asks Dylan to get her a gun and show her how to use it. Romero visits Keith Summers' sister Maggie and learns Jake Abernathy's real name. Norma visits Dr. Kurata, without Norman, to get his advice on how to handle stress but leaves when his questions caused her to be ill. She shares a deep dark secret with Norman. Norman overhears his teacher Miss Watson having an argument with someone over the telephone. She is clearly upset and Norman promises not to tell anyone. Her attraction to Norman is obvious. Norman asks Emma to go to the winter dance but it doesn't go well after he keeps staring at Bradley. Her boyfriend has something to say about it as well. Forced to walk home in the rain, a friend offers him a ride.
Did You Know?
During the final scenes where Norma is driving into the Motel parking lot as Norman is running across the parking lot, it was not actually raining (the first night all week that it wasn't). Because of this, Vera Farmiga
had to be blow-dried between takes, while Freddie Highmore
and the car had to be sprayed down with water bottles. Freddie would keep himself warm between takes by jumping up and down on the spot, as the scene was filmed January 31. See more
Before Norman goes to the dance with Emma, Norma's cell phone with a blue case is visible on a side table. Emma arrives, and Norma shows her and Norman out just as Abernathy calls Norma's cell and it vibrates in her pocket. At no point during an intense conversation with Norman nor the subsequent continuous scene with Emma does Norma have a chance to move her phone from the side table to her back pocket. See more
I don't need you passing judgement on me or on anything I do, okay. I'm 22 years old, I'm an adult.

Who's not the adult? I'm trying to teach you how to use a firearm, and you're doing whatever the hell you want.
