A&E has renewed Bates Motel for a 10-episode second season. The show has had strong ratings since it’s premiere, debuting with 3 million viewers, 4.5 counting DVR. The second and third episodes have maintained similar ratings.
Just yesterday, I was discussing the show’s strengths (the creep-tastic scenes between Norman and Norma) and weaknesses (Emma and the town’s subplots) with friends. They brought up something I hadn’t thought about yet. Last week, we saw Norma visit Norman and tell him to go to the Deputy’s house to get the belt. What other interactions between Norma and Norman are in his head? Was Norma even there for the death of Keith? Thoughts?
