When a Tentacle blocks the generator exhaust pipe, Norm is anxious to be the one to go out into the mist through the loading door to unblock it, but when the loading door is opened, a swarm of the Tentacles from Planet X attack Norm; dragging him out through the open shutter while slowly eating him alive. Presumably, Norm is subsequently killed out in the mist when the Tentacles completely devour him.
Norm was apparently on good terms with Jim and appeared to try and impress Jim and Myron and prove himself to them.
