Warning! Spoilers below for the last 2 episodes of Bates Motel!

The final season of A&E’s series Bates Motel is off to a roaring start with back to back fantastic episodes, as we inch closer to the pivotal moments where the series blends with Alfred Hitchcock’s original 1960 masterwork. Norman (Freddie Highmore) has completed his transformation into full “psycho” mode, blacking out and living long murderous periods as his mother. Meanwhile, Dyl-Emma is off with their new baby girl, trying to make a normal life for themselves. Norman is finding himself attracted to a very Norma-esque woman in town, who is married to a man Norman knows is canoodling behind her back at the motel.

Last week was a rough one for Caleb (Kenny Johnson). First he was sent packing; in the nicest way possible, by Dyl-Emma… mostly Emma (Olivia Cooke). He arrives back in White Pine Bay to seek out Norma (Vera Farmiga), unaware she’s been dead for months. When he finds out accidentally, he draws a v-line for Norman and the motel, knowing Norman was responsible. It’s there he uncovers Norma’s preserved body right before getting knocked out by Norman with the help of Chick (Ryan Hurst), who doesn’t exactly need any prodding to help take out Caleb. So much so that the sight of Norman dressed as Norma doesn’t faze him too much. Norma(n)’s response, “Well now you know Chick, I’m still alive.”

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.
