The 4th season of Bates Motel is less than 2 months away, and A&E has released an under 30-second visual metaphor, to let us know what season 4 has in store for us. “Down the Drain” is literally Norman Bates’ (Freddie Highmore) descent into madness.
Check out the teaser below.
The clip is just flashes – a painting (or is it a stuffed bird in a frame?) with real eyes peeking through, and Norman and Norma (Vera Farmiga) circling the drain followed by a broken pearl necklace. Then the last moment is blood going down a shower drain with the words:
“We all go a little mad sometimes.”
Last season propelled Norman closer to madness. His visions were worse, and he snapped, believing himself to be Norma to Dylan (Max Thieriot). This season is going to be quite terrifying.
Bates Motel returns Monday March 7th followed by the series premiere of Damien on A&E.
A&E Network presents the season four return of the critically acclaimed drama, â€œBates Motel,â€ starring Vera Farmiga in her Emmy nominated role as â€œNorma Batesâ€ alongside the brilliant Freddie Highmore as â€œNorman.â€ From writers and executive producers Kerry Ehrin (â€œFriday Night Lights,â€ â€œParenthoodâ€) and Carlton Cuse (â€œLost, â€œThe Strainâ€), this season will showcase Normanâ€™s deranged descent into madness. Directly following â€œBates Motelâ€ will be the series premiere of the original scripted drama, â€œDamien,â€ a continuation of the classic horror film, The Omen from executive producer Glen Mazzara (â€œThe Walking Dead,â€ â€œThe Shieldâ€). Both series will premiere on Monday, March 7th at 9PM and 10PM ET/PT respectively on A&E.
â€œBates Motel,â€ a contemporary prequel to the genre-defining film Psycho, will return with ten new episodes that further reveal Normanâ€™s continued downward spiral and the effect it has on the family. This season Norma becomes increasingly fearful and desperate, going to great lengths to find Norman the professional help he needs. This further complicates their once unbreakable trust while Norman struggles to maintain his grip on reality. Sheriff Romero (Nestor Carbonell) once again finds himself drawn back into Norma and Normanâ€™s lives. Will things finally heat up between Norma and the other man in her life, Sheriff Romero, and just how much further will he go to protect her?
