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...
A&E certainly has an eye for talent, with the brooding Chloë Sevigny joining the electrifying Vera Farmiga in back-to-back Monday psycho- (or Psycho) dramas. Unfortunately, the former Big Love scene-stealer is not nearly as well served by the unpleasant formula dreariness of Those Who Kill (10/9c), an adaptation of a Danish series that takes a by-the-numbers approach to some truly ghastly serial-killer action.
The sun is sinking behind Bates Motel's Vancouver set as cameras prepare to shoot Norma Bates (Vera Farmiga) scaling the familiar stone steps leading up to her iconic hilltop home. Spying an approaching flock of crows, the director instructs Farmiga to "wait for the birds" to enter the frame before commencing her ascent. At this point, one half expects the silhouette of ...
Usually, Richard Castle's overactive imagination is a good thing — so good that as he helps his NYPD buddies solve scores of murders, you often wonder how they'd ever get along without him. In the set-up for Castle's clever lark of a 100th episode on ABC (Monday, 10:01/9:01c), they're forced to go solo as Castle (Nathan Fillion in rare form) stews in boredom in his apartment, nursing a busted leg. Until he picks up his new birthday binoculars and goes all Jimmy Stewart-in-Rear Window, convinced he's witnessed a murder across the street, eventually drawing his beloved Beckett and intrepid daughter Alexis into the Hitchcockian-homage intrigue. The more agitated Castle gets, the more skeptical everyone else becomes, and as the twists and comically suspenseful close calls pile up, leading to yet another chewing-out by that spoilsport Capt. Gates, we're treated to an entertaining object lesson in the "seeing isn't believing" playbook. Well done, including the timely subplot involving the murder of an IRS agent which, even when chair-bound, Castle can't help inadvertently helping his friends figure out.
