What Lies Beneath

Character mistake: Claire's behavior makes no sense and is intirely implausible and unrealistic. For example: Whenever Claire talks about the ghost, she never mentions any of her compelling observations. When she tells Norman about the seance, she incorrectly says that nothing happened. Claire wakes Norman up to look at the Feur driveway after the apparent body-bag is already in the closed trunk. What did she want him to observe? A car? An empty driveway?

Continuity mistake: When Claire first sees the ghost, Norman rushes in and Claire grabs and hugs him. Her hand was just in the tub yet as she's hugging Norman, her hand is dry. She would have left some kind of a wet mark on Norman's shirt.
