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.

She refused to listen, and broke up with Alex for trying to get between her and her son. Norman (Freddie Highmore) found Emma’s mom’s suitcase and realized that they could not live in this world any longer. He lit the furnace and closed all the vents except for the room in which they were sleeping. Romero finds them and starts CPR on Norma, shredded by grief.

Last week on Bates Motel, Dr. Edwards (Damon Gupton) told Norman (Freddie Highmore) about his Norma persona that comes out when he blacks out. That Norma (Vera Farmiga) told the doctor of the abuse at the hands of Norman’s father, which is why she had to protect Norman. The real Norma met with Chick (Ryan Hurst) and basically lost her s**t around him in front of Alex (Nestor Carbonell). She confessed about her brother, but Romero didn’t care. He loves her and wants to stay with her. Dylan (Max Thieriot) went to pack his stuff to move to Seattle, despite Norma being upset about it, and found the letter Emma’s mom left.

Last week’s Bates Motel saw Norman (Freddie Highmore) try to throw himself into therapy. He did sneak a phone message to Norma (Vera Farmiga), then hallucinated that she visited him.

Norman turned into Norma during therapy with Dr. Edwards (Damon Gupton). Norma asked Alex (Nestor Carbonell) if he killed Bob Paris, and he didn’t deny it. She was overwhelmed with gratitude, the magnitude of that washing over her.

Olympus Athens   |  

Bates Motel 405-03

Bates Motel
Season 4 Episode 5: “Refraction”
Directed by Sarah Boyd
Written by Erica Lipez
Starring Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore, Max Thieriot, Nestor Carbonell, Olivia Cooke
A&E
Air Date: Monday, April 11th, 2016, 9pm

Last week on Bates Motel, Norman (Freddie Highmore) called Dylan (Max Thieriot) to warn him about Norma (Vera Farmiga), but Dylan just tries to soothe him. Norma definitely is starting to like her new husband, and even goes to the Winter festival with him. Rebecca is sniffing around Romero (Nestor Carbonell) about Bob and money. Norman’s new bestie Julian drags him out for the night (after quite the easy escape), but a strip club is not Norman’s idea of fun. But it is Norma’s (great scene). The boys get caught and Norman breaks down to Dr. Edwards. He (and we) feel very sorry for Norman’s anguish.

Spoilers below.
