Bates Motel -- "Check-Out" -- 3/24/14




A new revelation forces Dylan to question his loyalty to Norma and Norman. Christine brings Norma into the White Pine social scene.


Episode 4 of 10

Well that was something. Another killer performance from Vera, and Norman had his first episode where he channeled mother.

One thing I don't get: why is Dylan so willing to believe his uncle/father. He takes him for his word at everything without requiring an ounce of proof.

Also, and this is kinda morbid, but could someone in Emma's condition have sex? I mean, she needs a respirator just to function.

Cripes, there was all kinds of creepy shit going on in this episode. Norman and Norma were disturbingly cozy, snuggled up together.

Hopefully the sheriff takes care of the 'tough guy' soon. His character is pretty annoying.

Yes, Emma could have sex. She just has oxygen probably, due to low levels in her blood.

Dylan doesn't want to believe he's the product of incest. It's easier to think his mother is lying, than to admit it to himself.

Yeah Norman and Norma were WAY too hands-on in this episode. That was just yuck.

I'm waiting for an ultra creepy moment where Norma hits on Norman la actor Ryan O'Neal and daughter Tatum.

It's probably not a good idea to hang around Norman during a blackout/amnesiac spell. I think it would be more fun if the show gone the freakish route and actually dubbed in Vera Farmiga/Norma's voice while he was channeling his mom in the hotel room.

What are the odds Dylan kills himself?

Do you we really need to hear Roar by Katy Perry on the show lol?

It looks like next weeks show might focus on the drug dealers the least interesting element on the show.

You're talking this season? Pretty low I would say - Max will probably remain in the cast until the end. Ultimately, I suppose your theory is possible, but I doubt it.

I agree with you that the drug dealing storyline is the weakest...it's like the writers watched too much BREAKING BAD or something. I'm not thrilled with this season compared to last...remember all the dark humor and great 'one liners' from Season 1? All that is gone (so far) this year.

What a sick, demented but ultimately incredible episode.

I enjoy most of the storylines of this show, but Norman & Norma are the heart. They shouldn't stray too far from that.

Yes please and thank you.

I wonder if they are planning on ending it after this season, so the creative team is going all out. They've thrown a lot at us in the last few weeks.

Did Emma wear like five outfits in this episode?

Did anyone else notice towards the end of the episode when Norma was drinking and talking to Dylan, how her glass went from almost empty to half full just like that?

Asides from that mega tiny observation, another solid episode and its gearing up to be another great season

Yeah, the awesome streak continues. Although, I was hoping Lemansky would stick around longer.

They had her hair dolled up for this episode, strangely. You would have thought she came out of a beauty salon after waking up next to that guy.

I thought this was a pretty poor episode, we got the overtly crazy stuff with Norman and I have no idea where the stuff with Emma is going. You can't mess around with time fillers in a serialized 10-episode season.

I've been wondering where Kathleen Robertson's character is. Guess she's coming later. She spills the beans on what she does. Minor spoiler.
