Storyline

Norma returns home in the early morning to find that Norman's bed hasn't been slept in. She soon gets a call from Nick Ford who says that he has Norman and if she wants to see him alive, she has to get Dylan to do what he asked: kill Zane Morgan. When Dylan is unable to do so he decides to inform Ford personally. Norman meanwhile is being kept in a metal box in the middle of nowhere and recalls a bit of what happened the night Miss Watson died. Sheriff Romero asks his father's ex-partner, Declan Rogers, to conduct a lie detector test on Norman. Norma blocks the sheriff's attempts to see Norman but eventually breaks down and tells him he's been abducted. Written by garykmcd

He's Mr. Big and Mr. Small, he's simple and he's wise, he's inherently honest but he's got a streak of larceny in his heart. He seldom walks up to a public telephone without shovin' his finger into the slot to see if somebody left a nickel there. He's the man the ads are written for. He's the fella everybody sells things to. He's..." See more »
