Norman brilliantly convinces Dr. Gregg Edwards he's ready to return home as ambulant patient. He is shocked to find out that Norma married the sheriff to use his health insurance to pay for the psych ward, and isn't convinced when she claims it's basically for show. Norma almost turns hostile on Dylan when he keeps asking about Emma's mother, knowing she was at the motel but ignoring her killing. Rebecca tells Alex she's returning to her Midwest sick mother, regardless of the FBI investigation.
Did You Know?
Norma's (Vera Farmiga
) comment that she wants to build a fruit cellar is a reference to how her corpse is discovered in Psycho
(1998). While looking for any sign of her missing sister, upon seeing Norman (Freddie Highmore
) returning to the house, Lila Crane runs down to the fruit cellar in order to hide and finds Norma's mummified corpse. See more

Dr. Gregg Edwards
You blacked out in our session yesterday. Norman, um one thing therapists don't always like to tell their patients is that sometimes, for things to get better, they have to feel worse first. I can't make that not true for you, but I can make sure you don't starve.
