George Heldens is a divorced man who could have been the "the one" for Norma Bates. He is also Christine Heldens' older brother.


Season 2[]

George met Norma at a party hosted by his sister, Christine. Norma initially assumed that George and Christine were only friends until George introduced himself as her brother. Christine sent George to talk to Norma, and they bonded.[1]

George took Norma on a date, with Christine and Peter, Christine's husband. Peter upset Norma while talking about the bypass that will ruin her business, so George took her home and mentioned that they should go on a date without Christine or Peter.[2]

Christine had George, a former lawyer who had even helped senators get elected, help Norma try out for the city council. When he was doing this, he told Norma to focus less on the city information and more on the "best part", which was herself.[3]

When Norman was briefly in jail (but not arrested), George visited to support Norma and Norman and offered to use his law expertise to help.[4]

Norma went to George's house for dinner. After he began asking her about college, she admitted that she never went, and left the house. She later came back.[5]

George went to Norma's house, where she, due to the stress of Norman's kidnapping, insulted him and told him to leave. He did so, even though Norma changed her mind and tried to make up for it.[6]
