The stages of separation began this journey. Beatrix's first step, the call to adventure, was the incident at the wedding chapel in Texas when the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad killed her whole wedding party and left her in a comatose state. When she woke up from the coma she realized her child was gone and assumed that her daughter had died. This infuriated Beatrix, and led her to start her journey to fulfill her vengeance.

Comparison of the “Psycho” and “A Rose for Emily” The Psycho by Alfred Hitchcock and A Rose for Emily by William Faulkner are works with different plots and endings.
