Tonight on A&E’s Bates Motel, star Max Thieriot (Dylan) stepped behind the camera, and directed his first episode of the hit series, as we near the midway point of the final season. Last week saw the strange yet touching relationship between Norma(n) (Freddie Highmore) and Chick (Ryan Hurst) build. Chick has become almost a guardian for Norma(n), guarding both secrets and in the physical sense, KO-ing Caleb (Kenny Johnson) and locking him in the fruit cellar. When a crisis between Norman and Mother (Vera Farmiga) set Caleb free, he fled but was taken out by Chick driving down the road.

Last week on Bates Motel, Norman was found talking crazy in a field and remanded to a city psych ward. Romero (Nestor Carbonell) got rid of his Bob murder evidence, but kept the cash. Norma (Vera Farmiga) tried to sell her body to a random (and gay) doctor to get Norman (Freddie Highmore) into the fancy hospital, then proposed to Alex to get his insurance. Neither worked but the doctor does give her hope of an appointment. Emma (Olivia Cooke) got lung transplant surgery and her long-lost mom showed up. Emma’s dad told her to get lost, so she went to the motel and checked in. She wanted Norma to give a letter to Emma. That was a no. Norman let her in later on and strangled her. That also was a no.

Warning! Spoilers below.

Bates Motel
Season 3 Episode 9: “Crazy”
Directed by Tucker Gates
Written by Steve Kornacki, Alyson Evans & Torrey Speer
Starring Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore, Max Thieriot, Nestor Carbonell, Olivia Cooke, Kenny Johnson
Air Date: Monday, May 4th, 2015, 9pm

Last week on Bates Motel, the “pit” in question was a 23-ft deep monstrosity, that Norma (Vera Farmiga) thought meant Bob Paris (Kevin Rahm) was playing ball, but actually didn’t. In fact, he had his goons grab Norma’s little shrink/lover James (Joshua Leonard) to get the goods on her. And since she confessed all while on her bender, he had a lot to give up. Bob went straight to Romero (Nestor Carbonell) with this info. Needless to say, Romero is not pleased. Norman (Freddie Highmore) was really upset about what James said about him wanting his own mother. Come on, Norman! It cannot be that unbelievable to you. Caleb (Kenny Johnson) and Dylan (Max Thieriot) almost get killed gun running for Chick (Ryan Hurst). Caleb DID try to warn Dylan, but he couldn’t see past the money he needed to save Emma (Olivia Cooke).
