A once-again rehabilitated Norman Bates is now married to a psychiatrist named Connie and is expecting a child. Norman secretly fears that the child will inherit his mental illness, so he sets out to find a definitive closure. One day on the radio, he hears talk show host Fran Ambrose discussing the topic of matricide with her guest Dr. Richmond, Norman’s former psychologist. Norman calls the show, using the alias “Ed”, to tell his story.

Norman’s narrative is seen as a series of flashbacks set in the 1940s and 1950s, some slightly out of order. When Norman is six years old, his father dies, leaving him in the care of his mother, Norma. Over the years, Norma (who is implied to suffer from schizophrenia and borderline personality disorder) dominates her son, beating him for even the smallest infraction (or even no infraction at all), teaching him that sex is sinful, dressing him in girl’s clothes and lipstick as punishment for getting an erection during potentially incestuous foreplay that Norma herself initiated in the first place. She also takes her frustration out on Norman when business at the hotel fails due to the new interstate routing potential customers away from their location.
