Warning! Spoilers below for the last 2 episodes of Bates Motel!

Last week on Bates Motel, Caleb (Kenny Johnson) showed up on Dylan and Emma’s (Max Thieriot, Olivia Cooke) doorstep, giving Dylan the mixed feels. Emma told Caleb to go. Norman (Freddie Highmore) was deep in his psychosis, living a happy life with the mother in his head, and snuggling with her corpse at night. He found a wallet and figured out it coincided with a blackout. He met a cute married business woman in town, and hallucination Norma (Vera Farmiga) was jealous. “Norma” helped Norman get rid of the “missing” guy’s body. His phone rang and Romero (Nestor Carbonell) was on the other end.

Bates Motel
Season 5 Episode 1: “Dark Paradise”
Directed by Tucker Gates
Written by Kerry Ehrin
Starring Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore, Max Thieriot, Nestor Carbonell, Olivia Cooke
A&E
Air Date: Monday, February 20th, 2017, 10pm

Warning! Spoilers below for the 5th season premiere of Bates Motel!

When we last left Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) on Bates Motel, he had killed his mother Norma (Vera Farmiga), and threw away his meds to be reunited with her. He also dug up her body and put it in the basement. He almost pulled the trigger and ended it all, when the full psychosis kicked in complete with music, as Norma returned to live in the fantasy that they are happy together, forever. He did not tell Dylan (Max Thieriot) she was dead. Alex (Nestor Carbonell) freaked out in grief, knowing Norman did it, and was hauled off to jail for perjury, not the punch he gave Norman.

Spoilers below.

Dylan: “You shouldn’t be living here alone.”

Creepy!! A&E has just released the official season 5 trailer for Bates Motel, after a couple of teasers last month. The story of a young Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore), and his dysfunctional relationship with his mother and reality is in its last season.

Walker Stalker Con: A Word With Bates Motel’s Max Thieriot
Olympus Athens   |  

Bates Motel 407-01

This weekend kicked off another fan convention, Walker Stalker Con, in Edison, NJ. As with last week’s Heroes and Villains Fan Fest, this had a main show focus (The Walking Dead – last week was Arrow, with a few others sprinkled in). At this one, my main sprinkle was Max Thieriot, who plays Dylan Massett on Bates Motel.

Spoilers (!) if you are not caught up on Bates Motel, which at this point means go immediately and watch all 4 seasons without eating, drinking, or sleeping, and then return to read this.

TV Review: Roots “Night 4”
Olympus Athens   |  

Roots Night 4-09

Roots
Night 4
Directed by Bruce Beresford
Written by Lawrence Konner
Based on the novel by Alex Haley
Starring Laurence Fishburne, Regé-Jean Page, Anika Noni Rose, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Mekhi Phifer, T.I., Erica Tazel, Anna Paquin, Sedale Threatt Jr., and Malachi Kirby
The History Channel | A&E | Lifetime
Air Date: Thursday, June 2nd, 2016, 9:00pm

The past 3 nights, A&E, The History Channel, and Lifetime have simultaneously aired the first 3 parts of the “Groundbreaking Series Reimagined” – Roots, based on Alex Haley’s 1976 novel. The original 1977 series starring Levar Burton and John Amos as warrior turned slave (but a warrior forever in his heart), Kunta Kinte, followed him and his generations of family through the brutal history of America. This week we cried and cringed and laughed and raged with these strong characters and brilliant actors. On Night 1, we met Kunta Kinte (Malachi Kirby) ripped away from his happy life in Africa, to be whipped and chained as a slave in America, always trying to escape. On Night 2, Kunta loses half a foot for running, and settles down with his wife Belle (Emayatzy Corinealdi) and his daughter Kizzy (E’myri Lee Crutchfield), teaching her the ways of a warrior. Kizzy is sold to another, ripped from her parents loving arms. Night 3 was the story of Kizzy (Anika Noni Rose) and her son George (Regé-Jean Page), product from a rape by her new owner, Tom Lea (Jonathan Rhys Myers). As much as George tried to gain Tom’s approval and love, in the end Tom sold him for a debt, and George was ripped away from his wife, babies, and mother.

TV Review: Roots “Night 3”
Olympus Athens   |  

Roots Night 3-07

Roots
Night 3
Directed by Thomas Carter
Written by Charles Murray
Based on the novel by Alex Haley
Starring Laurence Fishburne, Regé-Jean Page, Chad L. Coleman, Shannon Lucio, Anika Noni Rose, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Michael James Shaw, and Malachi Kirby
The History Channel | A&E | Lifetime
Air Date: Wednesday, June 1st, 2016, 9:00pm

Last night on Roots, time passed and Kunta Kinte (Malachi Kirby) still dreamed of running away. He almost made it too, joining the British against the rebels for his freedom. That didn’t work out well, and soon he was back at the Wallers minus 5 toes. Doc Waller (Matthew Goode) took him in, and the beautiful Belle (Emayatzy Corinealdi) nursed him back to health. They married and had Kizzy (E’myri Lee Crutchfield), and Fiddler (Forest Whitaker) died saved their lives. Kizzy grew up friends with the Wallers’ daughter Missy, as much as a slave and an owner’s daughter can be friends. After the boy Kizzy loved was shot to death, she was sent away because it was found out she could read (and betrayed by her “friend” Missy). She was brought to Tom Lea’s (Jonathan Rhys Myers) farm, and he raped her. She had his baby and named him George the Mandinka way.

Spoilers below.
