Storyline

Cody takes care of Norman until he comes out of his fugue state. He lies and tells her it's never happened before. He learns that she has a difficult situation at home and she shows him her hideaway. When he gets home however, Norma has harsh words about the girl and asks him not to see her again. Norma finds a supporter and a benefactor in her attempt to stop work on the bypass. Nick Ford gives her the ammunition to stop the work, at least temporarily. She doesn't realize just who she's dealing with however. Emma is thinking of having sex with boy she met on the beach and asks Norma for some advice. Romero moves into Norma's motel and subsequently delivers a message to Zane. Written by garykmcd
