Bates Motel: What's Next for Dylan After the Daddy Bombshell?

Max Thieriot

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.

Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore

It's gonna be a bright, sunshine-y day on Season 2 of Bates Motel — at least temporarily. 

When the second season of the A&E drama kicks off (Monday, 9/8c, A&E), four months have passed.

Monday Review: A&E's Kill-er Women, Mom, Human Finale, Castle, Jeopardy!

Max Thieriot, Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore

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.
