As they lay together kissing, Norman stops short of having sex with her, mentioning Norma's warning. Emma is angry and goes to leave, telling Norman that she didn't realize that Norma was coming on the picnic as well.

While shopping in town with Gunner, Caleb sees Norma returning to her car but gets back into the truck before she can see him. Having found out that Caleb used money to buy timber for the barn when Dylan told him not to, Dylan confronts his father, leading to Caleb injuring himself in a fall. He tells Dylan that he can't go to the emergency room as there's a warrant out for his arrest and as Dylan tends to him, Caleb reveals more of his family's history, mentioning that he and Norma only had each other when they were growing up.

Dylan later finds a mysterious man ransacking the motel office looking for the USB key. Dylan threatens him and the man leaves. Norman, suspicious about the secrecy between his mother and Dylan, silently follows Dylan back to the farm to find Caleb staying there and threatens to tell Norma.
