Hello again, "Mother."
On Monday's Season 2 finale of Bates Motel, Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) was once again...
A day in the life of Jack Bauer would go so much easier if anyone would just listen to him when he barks commands like, "Stop that couple!" Fat chance when what seems like half the armed personnel of the CIA's London bureau have guns pointed at the good guy instead of the fleeing bad guys.
Will they never learn? Apparently not. Which is no doubt exactly the desire of the fans who've been waiting four long years — that's roughly 35,064 hours in real time — for 24, one of TV's most electrifying thrillers, and Kiefer Sutherland as its beleaguered yet seemingly indestructible hero to snap back into action. The novelty — and thus, a bit of the edge — is gone as Fox's 12-part 24: Live Another Day seeks to prove that less is more, slowly revving up the comfortably formulaic engine while visceral split-screen editing once again intensifies the literally explosive twists. And yet, because a sad, mad, badass Jack Bauer is the only Jack we've ever known, there's something grimly satisfying when he mutters bleakly to one of his few allies, "I don't have any friends."
Now that Norman Bates knows the truth about his murderous ways, how much longer can it be kept a secret?
On the penultimate episode of Bates Motel's second season, Norman (Freddie Highmore) was kidnapped and stuffed in a box for hours. The traumatizing time alone allowed Norman's repressed memories of murdering Miss Watson to come to the surface. "This was a huge chunk of reality for Norman Bates, who just doesn't have an awareness of this part of himself," executive producer Kerry Ehrin says...
Bates Motel's Dylan Massett has seen better days.
Not only is Dylan (Max Thieriot) working for a family drug operation that is on the verge of war with a rival family, but he also recently learned that he's the product of incest between his mother Norma (Vera Farmiga) and her (alleged rapist) brother Caleb (guest star Kenny Johnson). Fortunately, a little light may be coming into his life.
Bates Motel: What's next for Dylan after the daddy bombshell?
On Monday's episode (10/9c, A&E), Dylan meets Jodi Wilson (Beverly Hills, 90210 and Boss alum Kathleen Robertson), the head of the drug family and his de facto boss....
Norma's going to have some explaining to do on Monday's episode of Bates Motel.
The previous episode ended with a huge confrontation between Norma (Vera Farmiga) and her oldest son Dylan (Max Thieriot), who was furious that Norma wouldn't give her estranged brother Caleb (guest star Kenny Johnson) a second chance. When Norma tried to explain that Caleb raped her repeatedly as a child, Dylan flew off the handle and called Norma a liar, which led to a brawl between Dylan and his half-brother Norman (Freddie Highmore). As the fight escalated, Norma was forced to drop a major bombshell...
