Warning! Spoilers below for Bates Motel!

Last week was the episode we’ve been waiting for since the beginning of Bates Motel. We finally got THE SHOWER SCENE! Except in a unique twist it’s not Marion Crane (Rihanna) who takes the wrath of Norman Bates, but rather Sam Loomis (Austin Nichols). Loomis had been the bane of Norman’s existence this season, cheating on lonely hardware store-owning wife Madeleine (Isabelle McNally) and using the motel for his lusty affairs with Marion, who innocently believed him to be planning a life with her. Freddie Highmore continues to be Emmy bait this season, his scenes with Rihanna in Room 1 are frantic and unnerving. We are watching his Norman Bates fully unravel and as he loses his grip, Norma (Vera Farmiga) tightens hers. Now accepting his mother dead, Norman is forced to accept he needs Norma with him, to help him do the things he can’t or won’t. But for now, they need to dispose of a body”¦

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

Approaching the series finale of A&E’s Bates Motel, we finally caught up to Alfred Hitchcock’s classic last week with the official introduction of Marion Crane (Rihanna). Unlike the original film, Sam Loomis (Austin Nichols) is already married and Marion is the unknowing other woman. Annoyed by a crap job with few prospects, she absconds with $400,000 and heads out from Seattle to White Pine Bay to be with her man. Except when Sam can’t sneak away from his actual wife Madeleine (Isabelle McNally), Marion is forced to take to refuge at… well, you guessed it. Norman (Freddie Highmore) is dealing with the possibilities of Romero (Nestor Carbonell) showing up at any second after escaping prison, and more importantly, he is struggling with the reality that Norma(n) has been taking over his body for longer periods of time. It’s the beginning of the end…

Warning – SPOILERS for The Walking Dead Season 6…

Last week saw a lot of loss, with the Walker attack that killed young Sam and his mom Jessie, the latter of whom seemed to be a nice love interest for Rick. Then there was Carl’s grave injury — shot in the eye by his teen nemesis Ron, who was cut down by Michonne — and it seemed like he wouldn’t pull through. Lastly, there was the death of the Wolf guy, who seemed to actually make a surprising change when he risked his life to save Denise.

But in light of all this loss came a uniting of all the residents of the Alexandria Safe Zone, who bravely faced the invading Walkers and beat them to finally come together as one people, a group under the leadership of Rick, who now sees clearly the good the future holds for his son and his people.

Unfortunately, this future includes some unforeseen elements, namely the coming of the villainous Negan, who, no, still hasn’t physically shown up yet. But, a new character did on Episode 6.10 “The Next World” “” Paul, aka Jesus, who is a character from the comics. In his debut episode, Jesus proves that he’s a formidable character, but there’s obviously more to him than meets the eye after we see him toying with Rick and Daryl. But more on that later, because oh man did something outstanding happen in this episode!!!!
