People who really knew Norm, knew that he had the ability to snap at any time. He put himself under tremendous mental and emotional strain out of his lack of trust for people, not to mention he was over his head in debt. He may have owned a business but he was not a very good businessman. This obviously was premeditated and a way to escape the hole he dug himself into. No sane person goes out to get propane tanks to blow up a beautiful home that they treasure? If he wanted to do himself in, that's one thing, but to take Bea's life in the process was an extremely selfish act on his part. It's truly sad that he didn't seek out help before things got so bad.
