Posted by   Filed under Articles, News & RumorsComments Off on ‘Bates Motel’ To Open With Norman Holding Norma’s Life In His Hands

Warning: This article contains spoilers for Bates Motel

It seems Bates Motel is going to get even more intense as Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) descends further into the darkness, something only hinted at in the season finale. When Bates Motel returns, fans will see Norman go full psychopath, a condition first revealed when, upon escaping from Norma (Vera Farmiga), he slipped into his mother’s persona and brutalized Bradley.

The Bates Motel executive producer Kerry Ehrin hinted that Norma’s ways of protecting her son may have contributed to Norman’s madness, since her actions would have had a different effect on one with dissociative disorder than they might have had on a more rational mind.

“So in many ways, ‘Mother’ is that for Norman. It’s somebody that he can call on when he feels out of control. The other side of that is, he has this whole warped, psychosexual, frustrated, messed-up psychology with his mother which also feeds into it. So it’s just created this being that lives in him.”

Even with the way Bates Motel left off, it seems there’s much more to play out between Norma and Norman, when the new season of Bates Motel premieres. Ehrin warns fans not to make any assumptions, especially where Vera Farmiga’s Bates Motel character is concerned.

“I feel like that could happen, honestly, at any point. It could happen in any episode from now until the end of the series,” Kerry warned, when faced with the idea that Norma Bates’ death would foretell the end of the series.

Kerry also revealed that even the way in which the new season of Bates Motel picks up will be different, since, unlike previous seasons, there will be no time jump.

“Bradley (Nicola Peltz) had just been killed, Norman thinks his mother did it, the actual Norma has no idea where her son is, Emma’s (Olivia Cooke) going in for a lung transplant. So there are a lot of threads we [wanted] to pick up immediately.”

How this plays out for Norma Bates remains to be seen. While Norman may pose an immediate danger to her, Norma still loves her son and wants what’s best for him. Currently, that may translate into sending him back to Pineview sanitarium, but, as Ms. Ehrin explains, real world problems may make that difficult.

“Those places are insanely expensive, and if you don’t have health insurance — and even if you do –they’re crazy expensive. So where that money is going to come from, what Norma Bates will have to do…what pretzel she will tie herself into, I don’t know yet,” Ehrin said. “But she wants, more than anything in the world, to fix things for her son and to be there for him.”

Bates Motel will debut in March 2016 on A&E.

Posted by   Filed under Articles, Interviews, News & RumorsComments Off on ‘Bates Motel’ Season 4 Spoilers: Norma’s death can happen anytime; Vera Farmiga sets apart the show from other thriller dramas

Vera Farmiga’s Norma Bates is already running out of time as Norman will be a full-blown psychopath when “Bates Motel” returns for season 4. Norma could even be her son’s next victim as showrunner hints that her death will help develop the story.

 A&E’s hit drama thriller is aiming for a darker season now that Freddie Highmore’s Norman Bates is nearing the state of his counterpart in Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film “Psycho.”

We previously reported the things that the fans can expect in “Bates Motel” season 4, which teases the blooming relationship of Dylan, played by Max Thieriot and Emma, played by Olivia Cooke. Nestor Carbonell’s Sheriff Romero and Norma will also have a chance to take their relationship to the next level in the upcoming season.

In his interview with Entertainment Weekly, Kerry Ehrin, executive producer of the show, hints one of the anticipated episodes in the series that will see the death of Norma Bates. Now that the show only has 20 episodes left, Ehrin admits that it will be happening somewhere in the middle of the remaining 20 episodes since Norma’s death will help develop the Norman arc.

“I feel like that could happen, honestly, at any point. It could happen in any episode from now until the end of the series!” Ehrin added.

Surely before that happens, we will still see more of the unstable Norma, who often losses it when it comes to protecting her demented son. Even Vera Farmiga revealed that she enjoys seeing her character go nuts from time to time during her interview with TheWrap.

“The biggest hoot is and always will be presenting Norma’s freak-outs. At least once a season, excrement hits the oscillating air device for Norma and she goes postal,” the actress said.

She also explained the biggest difference of their show from other thriller TV shows that also has a cult following like theirs.

“What sets our thriller apart from others on TV right now is that we are firmly rooted in reality,” Farmiga said. She then added, “There is nothing mystical, fantastical, supernatural, spectral or otherworldly in our show. We explore the darkness of the human condition.”

“Bates Motel” season 4 might finally see the death of Norma despite her unconditional love for her son and her efforts to make him well. Her death will ultimately help the story to progress now that there are only 2 seasons left for the A&E hit series.

Posted by   Filed under Articles, Interviews, News & RumorsComments Off on Vera Farmiga Says Nothing Compares to the American Thriller, ‘Bates Motel’

Vera Farmiga, the co-protagonist at an American drama thriller “Bates Motel,” said nothing compares to their TV series.

Farmiga, who plays as Norma Bates in the TV series, praised their show for its uniqueness and said that there is nothing else like “Bates Motel” on television. Farmiga said that their TV series presents the neurosis, psychopathy, and dysfunction of their characters which will make viewers feel better about themselves, The Wrap reported.

Farmiga was even asked about what sets apart their show from other horror TV series. The actress said that “Bates Motel” is firmly based in reality. Farmiga added that they only explore the darkness of human condition and there are no mystical, fantastical, supernatural, spectral or otherworldly aspects in their TV series.

The actress also said that their beautiful story is about a single mom’s unconditional love of her dysfunctional child. According to her, the profoundly moving rapids of heartache, yearning and effort that it takes for a parent to heal their child should swept away viewers of the show.

Farmiga loves their TV series and she also loves to go on freak-out modes, which is a vital part of their show. According to the actress, doing freak-outs for her role as Norma is her favorite part.

The TV series is renewed for fourth and fifth seasons with 10 episodes each. The renewed seasons will be aired on 2016 and 2017 respectively, Crave Online reported. Executive vice president and general manager of A&E and Lifetime Rob Sharenow said that they were thrilled to bring fans two more seasons to witness the next stages of Norman’s transformation into the most notorious psychopath in cinematic history.

The American thriller series will star Farmiga as Norma Bates, Freddie Highmore as Norman Bates, Max Thierot as Dylan, Olivia Cooke as Emma and Nestor Carbonell as Sheriff Alex Romero.
