Bates Motel returns to A & E for its second season on March 3rd. I went into the first season with my jaw set, my arms crossed, fully expecting this show to crash and burn. It’s the prequel to Psycho; I assumed it would suck all the way to its impending cancellation. Man, was I wrong. Bates Motel ended up being an amazing series and kept me hanging the entire season. Freddie Highmore and Vera Farmiga floored me with their skill and chemistry. A boy has to love his mother in a series like this, and did he ever. Creepy.
Bates Motel returns on 3/3/14 on A & E.
“Picking up from last season, Norman (Freddie Highmore) is fixating on Miss Watson’s death while Norma’s mysterious past starts to haunt the family with the introduction of her brother. Meanwhile, Norman’s brother Dylan, (Max Thieriot), gets more entrenched in the familial drug war that fuels White Pine Bay and finds himself right in the middle of the danger as Bradley (Nicola Peltz), who remains on the hunt to uncover her father’s killer, is driven to precarious extremes. Sheriff Romero (Nestor Carbonell), is caught up on all fronts as everything in town escalates and Emma (Olivia Cooke) complicates her relationship with Norman as the duo explore new love interests, bringing new and old characters along for the ride.”
