To anyone who hates on Emma for wanting to feel like part of the Bates family during season 2, I want you to remember what we learned in season 1.
Her mother abandoned her and until Norman and Norma moved to White Pine Bay, all she had in the world was her father. You never see Emma interacting with anyone else in the series for the entire first season. Norman quickly became very important to her, and Norma showed her motherly kindness that shed craved for over eight years. That entire family meant a lot to her and they didn’t always shut her out the way they did in season 2. That came suddenly for her, and it was confusing and didn’t make sense, so of course it hurt.
Shut up about Emma mk?
