I was waiting for you to post because I didn't want to give anything away. Well Carm I just don't know what to think. It ended completely differently than I expected, but I really don't know what I thought would happen, except that Norman would end up living and locked up. I thought he would have escaped from Romero for sure.
Well it ended differently than I thought it would but I did think Norman would die, or he would end up in the bin and he and Norma would be chatting about how they can survive anything as long as they are together. I didn't know what they were going to do with Romero but I think that was addressed well. Norman may have gotten away from him but Romero got to tell him "You killed your mom, you can never escape from that." I thought they made a mistake in the Sheriff woman saying to "go to each residences, Romero's and Bate's" or whatever she said. I kept wondering why no one was there guarding the place. And WHY didn't Emma call the police or DYLAN for that matter?
I didn't hear the sheriff say that but that but I'm sure that she did, I had the same question "Why the heck aren't the cops staking out Bates Hotel?" I had the same thought about the miracle of science Emma the first person to ever be cured of Cystic Fibrosis
.If they intended to imply that Norman saw Norma in Heaven and that's why he told Dylan "thank you" after he shot him, I kept thinking, as crazy as he was in his mind, that could be just another delusion of his.
I think it was supposed to leave us with the impression that it could be a delusion or that they were finally together for eternity like they always wanted to be. But the second scenario pissed me off because, WHAT ABOUT ROMERO!? Anyhow I was whining about Romero and the after life and my friend said if
heaven is our own paradise there is no reason to think Romero and Norma are not simultaneously experiencing paradise without Psycho Norman.
*Shrugs shoulders*Since I watched the first season over again, all the flashback scenes were fresh in my mind and it really wasn't sad to me. When the show started I already had goosebumps. Norman's acting was amazing to the end. He really did all those scenes well, especially when the lady and her brats checked in.
I was crying like a baby watching the old scenes where they were so full of hope and wide eyed love, even though I know it wasn't perfect and they were already screwed up, I believe they had hope. I do believe Norman was right about Norma's indomitable spirit and I thought Vera was so exceptional in portraying that spirit. It broke my heart seeing crazy blood smeared Norman thinking he was on the brink of a new life. Agree completely with you about Norman's acting. One twist that I thought was brilliant is when he woke up from a dream. I thought GOOD, Romero is not dead. Then I started thinking back how much of it was a dream, only to realize where it was going when they went back to the snow scene. I thought there would be a possibility of a spin-off at some point in time if Norman had lived.
The first thing I thought of when Norman woke up from the "dream" was Norma telling Emma while in jail that Norman was sleeping and when it was all over Norman would wake up in his own bed to the smell of apple pie baking in the oven. I thought Norman was going to actually be in the bin but living in a delusional world where he woke up as Norma had predicted. (I know I make my own brain hurt sometimes
)I watched only a small bit of the aftershow. It was just TOO EARLY for me to see all the laughing and behind the scenes. I'll watch in a few days.
I'm anxious to hear what you thought. It's been fun!
I watched the after show because I wanted to know they were all ok
. I know. I know. I am a big baby
It has been fun
. I am going to miss the characters and their world of love and madness. And chatting with you about it all!
What I really liked. What drew me in was that I could suspend my demand for the screen to fit reality and I really got dragged into their world. I normally just pick things a part and find reasons why shows are stupid, here I thought the characters were so strong intriguing and chilling that it really did captivate me. I hoped against hope right along with them.
Do you watch Better Call Saul?
