The Good Bits: Bates Motel(s4ep3)


Death Check: Emma’s mother is still pretty dead.

RIP Norman’s belt, you served your purpose.

Normero wedding.

That’s the ship name, right? Normero, as the kids say?

Either way, the Normero wedding went off without a hitch. Norma looked beyond bothered to be there, which is hilarious considering getting married was originally her idea.

Secondly, she wore black to her wedding.

All. Black. 

At that point it’s not even a wedding anymore that’s a straight up funeral. I’m assuming she was mourning her ability to sleep with everyone she wanted without being branded with a scarlet letter.

However, Romero gave her a huge ring. He was all dolled up, didn’t wear all black, he was clearly into this fake marriage far more than Norma was. Honestly, he stole the show. Someone gives this man an Emmy.

Norma fearful of ruining her third (even though it’s fake) marriage.

Aw, poor Norma. Even though they didn’t marry for love she’s afraid of destroying the marriage. Poor thing. Well, I’d be afraid of that too considering her past and the fact that one of her children is a psychopath.

Besides, maybe Romero will ruin it. After all, he’s the one with bank teller “friend” he occasionally sleeps with that seems scorned by his marriage.

Norma and Romero are both screw ups, how perfect for each other.

Norman has a new friend!

Julian seems like a wonderful influence, but he needs to be careful with that pot pie in front of Norman. Be sensitive to Norman’s feelings, my goodness!

The pit is filled!

But alas, one single earring remains. A forever haunting reminder of the murder that took place at the hands of Norman Bates.

Or as he likes to believe, at the hands of his mother.

Dylan wants to leave the weed business.

That’s nice. Doubt the money is as great but you know, whatever. Emma’s already got her new lung so I guess money doesn’t matter anymore.

Chick Hogan is back.

With a vengeance! For Caleb, of course. Yet he can’t find him, and Dylan claims he has no idea where the man went. Well, I can’t imagine that will sit well with Chick. Hmmm, it’s not like Dylan has family nearby or a girlfriend in the hospital or anything…

Norman’s at it again!

Not with the murder thing, almost but not quite. That orderly restrained him pretty well. I’m genuinely impressed his head didn’t end up shattered against the wall.

Anyway, Norman’s back at making Norma look like the monster. First he berates her when she visits him, and now he tells his doctor that she’s insane and killing people. Yeah, that’s great! Child of the year!

Geez, someone should have put him up for adoption. Kid is more trouble than he’s worth!

Normero did a thing together.

Not only did they have dinner, but the episode ends with the two sampling each other’s saliva to build immunity.

So….Romero’s going to die, isn’t he? The powers that be won’t allow this semi-happy marriage to bloom.

Another successful episode in which Norman shows how perfectly manipulative and psychotic he is. Hopefully next week we get a nice little murder or two!
