** DylanDylan for his OnlySaneMan tendencies and [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold being one of the few decent people]] on a show filled with lunatics.

Added DiffLines:

* WTHCastingAgency: Creator/{{Rihanna}} as Marion Crane, especially after her highly criticized performance in ''Film/{{Battleship}}''. The fanbase is ''not'' pleased, and even people who don't watch are laughing at the absurd casting decision.

* EvilIsCool: Chick instantly became one of the show's popular villains due to the character's completely wild and unpredictable personality. The fact that he has numerous PetTheDog moments also shape him into a more likable character.

* EvilIsSexy: Norman's SplitPersonality Mother is considered attractive due to be played by the same actress for Norma.



* NightmareFuel: Norman features this in every episode.

to:

** When Norman and [[spoiler: his hallucination of his deceased mother]] are bonding together in the closing minutes of ''Norman'', the camera pans out to show the Bates Motel covered in Christmas decorations. But, considering that Norman never had the time to hang up any of these decorations across the ''entire'' motel it may cause viewers to question whether or not he's hallucinating all this too.

** When Norman [[spoiler: admires the corpse of his dead mother, he hallucinates her eyes opening to glare at him. Then when he grave robs her coffin to bring it back to his house, he goes to great lengths to make it appear as if she's still alive.]]


Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler: Norma's]] death at the hands of Norman and his eventual breakdown over causing it afterwards. He's so traumatized by the events that he even considers suicide due to what he's done. The only thing that stops him from going through with it is [[spoiler: when he hallucinates that his mother is still alive, meaning that Norman kept her corpse in his house just to continue the fantasy life he always wanted with her.]]

* {{Padding}}: The scene where Norman adjusts his house's furnace and locks up all the vents in his home goes on for a very long time before building up what the scene is actually supposed to be. This includes several close-up shots of the furnace's fire, a long scene trailing the inside of the vent shafts, and a long scene following Norman walking around his entire house closing off all of the vents in his house.

** Every heartwarming moment between Norman and his mother is this if you're familiar with the original film.

Added DiffLines:

** Chick, being a real bastard and a skilled manipulator despite being erudite and charming, tends to invite this, particularly in his treatment of Norma. Did he really plan to spread her secrets all over town, or was he just riling her up so she'd drive Romero out of her life herself?

Added DiffLines:

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Norma's unreasonable behavior and unwillingness to accept some of the harsher aspects of real life can sometimes exceed the sympathy she earns from hell she's been living, particularly when her selfish and poorly-thought-out actions end up putting her family in danger.
