The fallout from Caleb's return causes Dylan to question his loyalty to Norma and Norman. Christine brings Norma into the White Pine social scene. Norman grows increasingly worried about Caleb’s presence in town. Romero finds himself caught in the middle of Zane’s war with a rival drug family.
Emma Decody is told by a family staying at the motel that a man has passed out in his truck in the parking lot of the motel. She sees that the man is Dylan Massett, and fails to wake him. Instead, she gets Norman to carry Dylan into a bed and leave him alone. After Emma goes back to her office, Dylan awakens and begins talking about Norma's revelation that his father is Caleb Calhoun. Norman tries to tell him that it doesn't change him as a person, but Dylan responds by hinting to Norman that a secret may be hidden from him, too. Norman later asks Norma if she's keeping a secret from him, and she says no. Dylan runs into Caleb and confronts him. Caleb returns Dylan's money and leaves. Meanwhile, Cody Brennan suggests to Norman that they beat Caleb up so that he will leave Norma alone. They go to the motel that Caleb is staying at, but Norman changes his mind and they leave. Dylan and Norma get into an argument, and Dylan correctly accuses Norma of using his birth to get away from Caleb. Norman overhears and goes back to Caleb's motel, alone. He pretends to be Norma, swinging a knife at Caleb and talking as if he were Norma, but Caleb pushes him into a chair and leaves. Alex Romero threatens drug leader Zane Morgan, and later sees a burning house (likely his own). Cody finds Norman (in a trance) in a coffee shop and drives him home.
