Last week’s Bates Motel saw Norman (Freddie Highmore) try to throw himself into therapy. He did sneak a phone message to Norma (Vera Farmiga), then hallucinated that she visited him. Dylan (Max Thieriot) went on a legit job interview, and he and Emma (Olivia Cooke) grew closer. Chick (Ryan Hurst) started stalking Norma. At first she didn’t realize it, but then he confessed. Norman turned into Norma during therapy with Dr. Edwards (Damon Gupton). Norma asked Alex (Nestor Carbonell) if he killed Bob Paris, and he didn’t deny it.

It’s been a weird week for the folks at Minority Report. At NYCC they held a panel with the entire cast and previewed a rough cut of their October 19th episode (review to come). Unfortunately, the panel came on the heels of news that FOX had cut the final three episodes of their debut season, a bad omen for any new show. A huge fan of the first few episodes, I’ll enjoy what I can get. Last week Hawk-Eye, the predictive policing program was put into place and its newest civilian analyst is Dash (Stark Sands), who is using the position the help Detective Lara Vega (Meagan Good) solve murders before the happen. Faced with the possibility of being discovered, Dash is warned by his pre-cog siblings Agatha (Laura Regan) and Arthur (Nick Zano) that Vega might be not be so trustworthy. Visions of milkbaths, dancing in their heads.
