Nestor Carbonell, who portrays Sheriff Romero clears up about the complexities that are held by the mental health system today. Every single case is different and how they will be explored in season four.
“You know what’s great about the season is that we explore mental health and it doesn’t sound so cinematic, but really the way that it’s been written explores treatment and I think it needed to be addressed at some point,” Carbonell states.
On the other hand, Farmiga says that Norma’s fear of abandonment aided in her blindness to Norman’s needs.
“I think what’s really going to separate this season from the rest is that they’ve really been interconnected so I think what we’re going to see is autonomy this year and separation and a disconnectedness and it reaches that boiling point in episode two,” Farmiga reveals.
