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.

Katie (Sarah Wayne Callies) got pulled back into the cell, when one of them got sick and died from radiation poisoning. Broussard (Tory Kittles) was not around. Will and a reluctant Green Zone doctor helped. Maddie and Nolan (Amanda Righetti, Adrian Pasdar) visits the prison camp. Maddie visits Bram (Alex Neustaedter) and is upset (they both are), but can’t do anything. Nolan makes Snyder (Peter Jacobson) show him the shipment. Snyder rats him out.

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.

Air Date: Thursday, February 16th, 2017, 10:00pm

Last time on Colony, two bombs went off. The first was in the labor camp. Bram (Alex Neustaedter) pretended (maybe) to be on Snyder’s (Peter Jacobson) side, while also being on Maya’s (Jessica Parker Kennedy) side. That didn’t work for two others who were shot in the head before Snyder could question them. Katie (Sarah Wayne Callies) kicked Lindsey (Erin Way) out of the house for punishing Charlie (Jacob Buster). Will returned to work, surprised that Jennifer wasn’t there. The 2nd bomb went off and he went to the surveillance room to find her. Next was her house where his new partner, Bob (Toby Huss) showed up, telling him she couldn’t adapt so was “transferred.” Broussard (Tory Kittles) and his team got their hands on drone tech. Katie downloaded some intel on Bram at Maddie’s (Amanda Righetti) house.

Charlie (Jacob Buster) set Lindsey’s (Erin Way) book on fire. Will noticed that there were cameras in the house, and whispered that to his wife in the shower. Jennifer (Kathleen Rose Perkins) did not turn the Bowmans in, deleting their files when she got fired. She went home and took a bunch of pills. The entire bloc was being watched.

Bates Motel Season 5 Trailer

Dylan: “You shouldn’t be living here alone.”
Norman: “Living anywhere else is not an option.”

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. As sad as that is, we have one more juicy season ahead of us, and I plan to enjoy every second.

Colony  202-12

Colony
Season 2 Episode 2: “Somewhere Out There”
Directed by Juan José Campanella
Written by Wes Tooke

Created by Ryan Condal, Carlton Cuse
USA
Air Date: Thursday, January 19th, 2017, 10:00pm

Last time on Colony, we got a glimpse of life before the occupation… right before the occupation. Will and Katie Bowman (Josh Holloway, Sarah Wayne Callies) had a normal family – cute little kids, angsty teenage son, spouses in it together. Will worked for FBI and Katie owned a bar – the Yonk. On that day, all electronics died, key military were extinguished (except Broussard – Tory Kittles – who were extra savvy), and a wall came crashing down, penning them in. The Bowmans lost their son, Charlie (Jacob Buster), which is where we met them at the beginning of season 1.

Spoilers below.

Colony
Season 2 Episode 1: “Eleven.Thirteen”
Directed by Juan José Campanella
Written by Ryan Condal
Starring Josh Holloway, Sarah Wayne Callies, Peter Jacobson, Tory Kittles, Amanda Righetti, Paul Guilfoyle, Ally Walker, Alex Neustaedter, Isabella Crovetti-Cramp
Created by Ryan Condal, Carlton Cuse
USA
Air Date: Thursday, January 12th, 2017, 10:00pm

Last season on Colony, we met the Beaumans. Will (Josh Holloway) was former FBI recruited by the new government for his skills, and agreeed to get his missing son back. Katie (Sarah Wayne Callies) was recruited by Broussard (Tory Kittles) to join the Resistance and spy on her husband. As you can imagine, that did not work out too well, or stay secret for more than 2 seconds. Both sides did questionable things – betrayal, murder, theft, chaos – just a perfect little family. Everything was out in the open at the end as Will and Katie took a stand on opposite sides, and Katie ended up alone.

Spoilers ahead.
