And one more - Deleted Lines - from the S1 Script Book
I hated that we never got this. I would have loved for them to make more of this relationship.
Bates being kind to William was always one of my very favorite things. Really, I’ve gushed about this before, but Bates and Anna being pseudo-“parents” to the younger staff is one of the things I like most about their relationship. I always remember Bates sticking up for William to Thomas (because that shove is damn nice, but I digress…) and Anna making him the armband after his mum’s death. I really would’ve loved it if this scene had made the final cut.
