* NotQuiteTheRightThing: The Prenderghast line (specifically those that [[ISeeDeadPeople can see the dead]]) have been duty-bound to keep the witch's curse at by by reading from a book once a year. Come to find out, [[spoiler: that ritual is simply reading a little girl bed-time stories so she'll stay asleep, but does nothing to resolve the anger and resentment she holds toward those that killed her]].

* ThereAreNoTherapists: Norman's HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood seems to consist of dodging bullies at school, being berated at home, and being a pariah in town. SocialServicesDoesNotExist either. His father, in particular, alternates between believing Norman has a problem and Norman is lying, and seems to think browbeating him will fix it in either case. No one thinks ''this kid needs real help.''
