Wow, great start to the new and final season.

Highmore was in top form with Norman descending more into madness.

at Norman having arguments with "Norma" and her giving him attitude. I guess that explains Vera's involvement in the final season. I'm surprised they made this version of Norma more like her usual self than that Stepford Wives character we've seen in the past.

Nice callback to Psycho with Sam Loomis (or David Davidson ) appearing and I'm guessing he was banging Marion Crane, who we didn't see on camera. I guess Rihanna will appear later on.

The 30 minute catch up episode before this aired was a cool and brisk watch. I had forgotten that Romero was arrested, but didn't realize he was sent to prison.

Guess I should of watched that 30 minute catch up episode or watch the last episode from last season. Had no idea Norma died & her husband got locked up.

This is such an excellent show and Highmore is so much fun to watch. I'll be sad when this show is over but what a ride!

I don't want it to end either. It is hard to see things during dark scenes on a LCD TV.

How long before that blonde girl working at the hardware store gets killed?
