That Chick guy sure is strange. Still don't know his agenda and if he wanted to kill Caleb the opportunity was there.

Well, Chick appears to be a bit of a freak. On the other hand, he's also an aspiring writer, so I think that's his agenda.

I loved how they showed Caleb running from the house, and Norma appearing to scold Norman.

I didn't, however, like the obviousness of Caleb being hit by the car. They could've handled that a bit better. I realize he was still supposed to be somewhat delirious, but it just seemed a bit too forced.

I noticed that too. I wished they could have been more creative with Caleb. that was a little too cliche.

They probably had a new writer for that episode and he or she did not put much thought into the death of Caleb.

I liked, if you can call it that, the way Caleb went out. He was always such a morally confusing all over the place character, it seemed fitting he would go out in such a way.

The dinner with Norman & Chick alone was great theater. Everything else was just gravy.

Caleb's arch was rushed only to get you to feel for him. Given that, he deserved a better send-off.
