* GoneHorriblyRight: Her plan to [[spoiler:drive Norman insane again]] in the second film goes off very well.

* WellIntentionedExtremist: In ''Psycho II''. Aside from the fact that her attempts to [[spoiler: drive Norman insane again to get him recommitted, which is considered to be very risky move, are a result of avenging her sister's death]], it also seems out of protecting any other potential victims (or as she quotes them to be "an innocent public") out of harm's way of a "homicidal maniac" (also quoted by her in the opening courtroom scene) in case if he ever relapsed back into insanity on his own [[spoiler: without any interference from outside parties such as herself]] if not sooner. Plus, even though Lila [[spoiler: did not seem to care if others who are already killed to have their deaths pinned on Norman anyway, it could be possible Lila saw them as necessary {{Sacrificial Lamb}}s to bring, what she see it as, a KarmaHoudini murderer to justice]].
