Last week on Bates Motel, Rebecca tried to get Romero (Nestor Carbonell) to confess while wearing a wire, but he caught on. Dylan and Emma (Max Thieriot and Olivia Cooke) were leaving, and Dylan tried one more time to get Norma (Vera Farmiga) to listen about Norman’s instability, at Romero’s urging. 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, it was Norma (Vera Farmiga) who was the “unfaithful” one – to her new husband, to her son. Norman (Freddie Highmore) came home and Romero (Nestor Carbonell) had temporarily moved out, so she could ease Norman back in. There is awkwardness and tension between mother and son. Dylan and Emma (Max Thieriot and Olivia Cooke) went over for one last night before moving to Seattle. They all went to get a tree together, but Nora and Norman fought. He created a peephole in one of the motel rooms to spy on his mother and her husband. Rebecca got picked up by the DEA.

Last week on Bates Motel, Dylan (Max Thieriot) could not stop looking for the truth of what happened to Emma’s (Olivia Cooke) mom. He confronted Norma (Vera Farmiga), but she screamed at him. Norman (Freddie Highmore) found out his mother married Romero (Nestor Carbonell), and after some mind games from both, she admitted it – but said it was one just of convenience. Norman manages to get her to agree to let him come home, against Dr. Edwards better judgment.

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.

Directed by Tim Southam
Written by Kerry Ehrin and Torrey Speer
Starring Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore, Max Thieriot, Nestor Carbonell, Olivia Cooke
A&E
Air Date: Monday, March 14th, 2016, 9pm

Last week on Bates Motel, Norman was found talking crazy in a field and remanded to a city psych ward. Romero (Nestor Carbonell) got rid of his Bob murder evidence, but kept the cash. Norma (Vera Farmiga) tried to sell her body to a random (and gay) doctor to get Norman (Freddie Highmore) into the fancy hospital, then proposed to Alex to get his insurance. Neither worked but the doctor does give her hope of an appointment. Emma (Olivia Cooke) got lung transplant surgery and her long-lost mom showed up. Emma’s dad told her to get lost, so she went to the motel and checked in. She wanted Norma to give a letter to Emma. That was a no. Norman let her in later on and strangled her. That also was a no.

Warning! Spoilers below.

TV Review: Bates Motel 4.1 “A Danger To Himself and Others”

Bates Motel Season 4 Header

Bates Motel
Season 4 Episode 1: “A Danger to Himself and Others”
Directed by Tucker Gates
Written by Kerry Ehrin, Carlton Cuse
Starring Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore, Max Thieriot, Nestor Carbonell, Olivia Cooke
A&E
Air Date: Monday, March 7th, 2016, 9pm

When we last left Bates Motel way back in 2015, Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) finally went completely off the reservation. Throughout the season, we had seen him spiral further and further, taking on his Norma (Vera Farmiga) persona publicly, and hallucinating almost every episode. His mother (the real one – not the hallucination) finally decided to check him into a posh hospital, but it was too expensive. Norman got wind of this and ran away with Bradley Martin, who obviously came back so Norman as Norma could kill her. Dylan’s dad Caleb (Kenny Johnson) left town without saying goodbye to him., just leaving his guitar. Emma (Olivia Cooke) was finally up for a lung transplant, but ran away, until Dylan (Max Thieriot) brought her back with kisses (it would work for me). Romero (Nestor Carbonell) warned Bob that the DEA were on their way, only so he could shoot Bob himself.

Warning! Spoilers below!
