The thing is, Rihanna didn't pull a Marion Crane and die a gruesome death. Instead she took her shower, was all "screw this sh*t" and left like a true badass who's in control of her own fate.
^ ICONIC MOMENT IS ICONIC.
"Rihanna was great," director Phil Abraham told Entertainment Weekly. "We had her for a very limited time, and she had a serious amount of heavy lifting in terms of work and page count to do. I think we shot over 38 pages with her being in just about everything in five days. One of the most fun things was to see what a die-hard fan of the show she was—walking her through our main house set was a blast as she was literally freaking out and having a real fan attack. That was a lot of fun to see."

FYI, the show did have a death—Marion's boyfriend, Sam Loomis (played by Austin Nichols) ended up being slashed in the shower, so phew. Hardcore Psycho fans can rest easy.
