Nice Town You Picked, Norma...



Ha. It turns out that the town that Bates Motel resides in has more dark secrets than the actual Motel or even the Bates themselves. I guess because they are a small town, away from the bright lights and big cities, they probably think and do have the run of the place with no repercussions. The Pot Field is just a start. More darker and shadier things are definitely going to be revealed.

Very cool in introducing Norman's brother. Although the character was mentioned in the previous episode, I didn't think they would actually bring him into the picture. I figured that it would just be Norman and his mother. Adding the 3rd wheel definitely opens up the story more and a lot more conflict, which this definitely hads in spades.

What's Wrong With Norman



Okay, I was almost right. I said that the Sheriff was the one that was keeping a girl prisoner in his basement for torture, among other things. Turns out it's the Deputy. I knew there was something off about him, but not to the point of suspecting him as the Bad Guy. Great cliffhanger. I wonder how Norman is going to get out of the Deputy's house without alerting him that he has seen the girl in the basement. I also liked that they are showing more of Norman's dark side. The first couple of episodes it was kind of under the surface. In this one, there is no getting around the fact that he is one f*cked up kid.

Trust Me



I wasn't expecting Norma to be arrested and charge with murder. I figured that she would be able to continually talk (f*ck) her way out of everything, leaving Norman the one to hold the bag. Well, that all went out the window with this episode. Sure, I do expect Shelby to somehow 'taint' the evidence by any means necessary so that he can keep her under his thumb. Man, if he only knew that he is the one under HER thumb. I really liked the scene between Norman and his brother, where he finally confessed to him about what happened earlier. It was a nice bonding moment between the two....but how long will that last?

Ocean View



Great episode. The more back story I'm seeing of the Bates family, the more it's changing my perception of the movie Psycho. It's no wonder that Norman ended up the way he did....totally messed up in the head. And now we can add another murder to the Bates name with Dylan running down that one guy with the truck. Sure, it was a revenge killing for shooting his buddy in the neck....but still. The big scene comes at the end when Norman and Emma reveal to Norman they found the girl. Obviously Norman is in denial about Shelby's involvement. So, the question now is, will Norma kill the girl because she "owes" him for tampering with her fiber evidence, or does she kill her because she's really in love with him and doesn't want her own little misguided world crumbling in on itself?

The Truth



This episode was HUGE for two reasons. First off, we finally get the showdown between the Bates Family and Shelby. Even when he found the girl, I didn't expect to see a full blown gun fight inside the Bates Mansion, giving the mythology even more resonance. The second thing that made this episode EPIC was the reveal at the end about what really happened to Norman's father in that Norman was the one that actually killed him. We get a little precursor to what is wrong with Norman when he attacks Shelby in defending Norman. The same thing happened with his father. Freddie did a great job in this. I don't know what he is channeling, but his 'Blackouts' are creepy.

I also liked the scene with Emma and Norma when she hugs her as if she were her own Mother. At first, Norma is standoffish, but then soon relents and embraces her as the Daughter she never had. Very cool moment. Love this series and was bummed that the episode ended with the Police pulling up to the Hotel with a dead Shelby on the ground. This sh*t is getting goooooooooooood. And THAT my friend is 'The Truth'.

The Man in Number 9



Very curious to see who 'the man in Number 9' turns out to be. With him renting out an entire block of rooms with more people on the way (as he suggested to Norma), does that mean he along with the rest have some kind of sex trafficking convention thing going on? Or is this just a red herring, trying to dupe the viewers into thinking one thing when in fact it's gonna turn out to be harmless?

Elsewhere, I suspected a few episodes back that Dylan and Bradley (she's a girl, even though she has a boy's name, so get your mind out of the gutter) would fall for each other. It's implied here and Bradley does in fact "break it off" with Norman. I can only imagine the HUGE rift this will have between him and his brother. Someone, whether it's Norman or Norma, will eventually kill him out of jealousy. Or kill her, leaving him to suffer for "betraying" the family. Elsewhere again....I was kind of surprise that the Sheriff came out with the idea of using another story to cover up the whole situation with Shelby. How's this going to blow-back? My guess....very messy. Great episode.
