Nora is the Mother of Bryce Walker and Ex-Wife of Barry Walker.

Throughout the Series Edit

Season 2 Edit

She is first seen when Kevin Porter came to the Walkers house and asked if he could talk with her about her son's interactions with girls at school. She first told Mr. Porter that her husband isn't home, but then let him in.[1]

Through the season she was very sceptic of Bryce. She wasn't sure if their son is that good of a person and whether he's a rapist. She kept asking her husband if he doesn't think the stories are true. However Barry was convinced that Bryce isn't a rapist and he accused Nora of not knowing her son.[2]

Nora later confronted Bryce, asking him what happened with Hannah and Chlöe because she didn't believe what Bryce told in court was the whole story. At first Bryce told her he just had sex with them, but Nora kept asking questions. Bryce then described what happened with Hannah in a disrespectful way. This caused Nora to slap her son in the face and to tell him that he brought shame on the family.[3]

Personality Edit

During Season 1, Nora appeared to be an uninvolved mother. Nora is shown to be more involved in her son's life by Season 2, worrying over Bryce's possible arrest. She appears to initially believe Bryce's story of him not raping Hannah, however, she displays restlessness and disgust over Bryce's behaviour when she finds out the true nature of her son.

Unlike her husband, she does not attempt to forsake his son but takes him in after Barry practically disowns Bryce. She, however, changes from a permissive (or basically neglecting) parent to a more involved one, attempting to educate and teach Bryce in order to try to change Bryce's behaviour towards woman, or life, in general. After her son's death, she is completely devasted especially during the funeral speech where she reminisces about the fun, short, times she and Bryce had in addition to the time Bryce defended her when Nora's father was verbally abusing her.

As such, for most of the last season, Nora is fully dedicated to finding Bryce's true murderer, noting that she remembers Clay's group members quite well; their names been ingrained in her memory, insinuating that one of them killed her son and she will find who did it.

Physical Appearance Edit

Nora is a tall middle-aged woman with long brown hair roughly reaching the shoulders. She is light-skinned and has pale green eyes. In most episodes, she is seen to be wearing formal attire.
