10 Episodes 2017 - 2017
Two years after the events of Season 4, "Bates Motel" returns in Season 5 to a still murderous Norman (Freddie Highmore) running the motel alone, convinced Norma (Vera Farmiga) faked her own death. While Norman tries to appear normal on the surface, "Mother" is always looming. Finding Norman's obsession with Madeline Loomis (Isabelle McNally), a woman who resembles Norma, distasteful, "Mother" becomes harder and harder to control. Discovering the true extent of Norman's psychosis, Chuck Hogan (Ryan Hurst) chooses to exploit the situation for his own gain, rather than intervene when Caleb (Kenny Johnson) and Romero (Nestor Carbonell) come seeking revenge.
