A Final Bates Motel Moment of Goodness: Brotherly Love in “The Cord”

[Warning: Spoilers for the series finale.] Bates Motel closed up shop tonight after five seasons, and while Season 5 as a whole was just really, really hard to watch because Norman was self-aware of his insanity, I wanted to at least mark the finale because I did love Season 3 in […]

[Warning: General spoilers ahead.] Bates Motel begins its swan song Monday night with an episode that picks up several months after the Christmastime events of the season finale. If a store receipt is to be trusted, we are beginning the following October/November-ish. Y’all know that I had some feels about […]

Bates Motel Says Goodbye to Norma Louise in “Norman”

“I’ll Be Home For Christmas” is a wistful holiday tune, and the key phrase as it concludes is, “if only in my dreams.” I think that’s where we’ll find most of the action going forward on Bates Motel, because they went there.

Norman Makes a Move in Bates Motel “Forever”

I knew something was up last night when Bates Motel started trending before I finished live Tweeting 12 Monkeys. I’m spoiler averse, so I had no clue what that might mean, but I figured it couldn’t be good. When I finally got to watch it, I was sort of waiting […]

Norma Admits Her Truth to Romero in Bates Motel “The Vault”

Hey there. So, I’m going to barrel clumsily into this and hopefully come out the other side with a coherent point. I haven’t been wholly down with this season of Bates Motel so far, partly because by putting Norman into treatment, they’ve split his arc away from Norma’s, creating two […]

[Warning: General spoilers ahead.] This week on Bates Motel, we vault headlong into Norman’s downward spiral as it’s wholly unclear what exactly transpired at the end of last week’s premiere, but regardless, Norma is desperately trying to piece that together while retaining her own safety, and sanity.

The Unraveling Begins in Bates Motel “A Danger to Himself and Others”

Wow, I have missed this show. My DVR’s hard drive failed right after Christmas so my ready-to-go Bates Motel fixes from last season went with it, and I hadn’t sought them out online. Watching the season premiere, I was enthralled, if I’m going to be honest. There’s so much going […]

Bates Motel Preview: “A Danger to Himself and Others”

[Warning: General spoilers ahead] We’re back! Bates Motel returns Monday night with a taut premiere that picks up right where the finale left off, which I am very glad about. I didn’t want any sort of time jump at all.

10 Reasons I’m Thankful for Bates Motel

On the face of it, a show that came into being with the hook that it was a prequel to Psycho really could have phoned it in and focused solely on the evolution of a serial killer. In its third season (despite *cough* a lack of Ian Tracey *cough*, we […]
