With the massive cliff in their way, Norman develops a new plan. He concludes that Grace Field House is on “a hexagonal property surrounded by a cliff.” The only way to escape is to cross the bridge. However, Mom wants Norman. Before he goes he returns the tracker breaker and says his goodbyes. Emma still hopes that he’s willing to run away and hide, he refuses. He remembers his childhood when Emma visited him while ill. In this flashback, Isabella makes things feel odd. She is sending him to his death and caring for Norman reminds use of how fake she is. It undermines the sweet moment between him and Emma.
When it’s time for him to leave, Emma tries in vain to stop him. Mom threatens to kill her if she tries it again. Norman and Isabella walk to the bridge, where he waits for his death. Considering the fact that The Promised Neverland hasn’t been shy about showing the death of the children. Meaning that NOT showing Norman’s death is telling. Does that mean he won’t be killed, not really. However, his intellect is still intact so he may have a plan. At the house, Isabella seems to reveal in the misery of Emma and Ray. She attempts to break their spirit completely. In particular she tries to break the devastated Emma. Telling her to “give up.”
Isabella is actually right. If they could accept their fate the would be happier. However, how or why would they accept that. If their going to die, they may as well try to escape of at least make Isabella’s life miserable as well. She offer’s Emma a sponsorship to become a “Mom or a Sister.” What I found interesting is that while Emma and Ray became more miserable, Don and Gilda seemed fine. I get that they were close to Norman but they do know what happened to him. Ray’s final day arrives. He asks Emma if she really gave up? She returns a a smile.
