Norma Watson was the secretary of Keri Tate at Hillcrest Academy. She was very good at her job and took care of any problem that happened at the school. On October 31 1998, as the students were leaving for their trip, she had bumped into Miss Tate which scared her. She told her that everyone was entitled to one good scare. She had noticed that Keri was feeling upset about something and had seen her like that numerous times before. She hated to see her friend like this and told her to try and concentrate on today and not the past and also told her to take care of herself. Keri thanked her for the advice and they parted ways and as she was leaving, Norma bid her happy Halloween and left.
Notes & Trivia Edit
- During the scene where Norma is leaving, she stands in front the car from Psycho (1960). The music playing in the background at this part is also from Psycho. Janet Leigh, who plays Norma, played Marion in Psycho. The license plate on the car is also the same as the second car Marion buys in the aforementioned film, NFB 418, which are Psycho antagonist Norman Bates' initials.
- P. J. Soles was originally approached for the role of Norma Watson. Soles never gave a straight answer as to what she wanted to do, skeptical about returning to the series as someone completely different then her character Lynda, originally killed off in Halloween. She eventually lost the role to Jamie Lee Curtis's mother, Janet Leigh, who was approached after not getting an answer from Soles. Norma Watson was also the same name as the character that Soles played in Carrie.
