Norman warns his mother that Shelby has a young woman locked in his basement. He then tells her about the journal that he found, and he tells her the sex slave story.

Norma spends the night at Shelby’s home. She goes to the basement while Shelby is asleep but she doesn’t see the girl. The next day Norman confronts her about Shelby AGAIN.
