Bates Motel Season 2 – Episode 8 Review

21 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Alice Rush reviews the eighth episode of Bates Motel season 2…

There was a definitive change of tone this week in Bates Motel as the feud between the rival drug families came to the forefront of the episode. For once it didn’t just feel like the Norman and Norma show, instead it felt refreshed and more tense than ever as the Bates’ are dragged down into the seedy goings on in the corrupt White Pine Bay.

After Zane’s raid and subsequent slaughter of Nick Ford’s warehouse last week most of the characters are reeling from the attack and most of them are furious with him. His sister Jodie tells him to lay low while Dylan tries to figure out a way to fix the situation. Nick Ford however is less diplomatic and approaches Norma, demanding she organise a meeting between him and Dylan. When she lies and says »

Go Inside Bates Motel Episode 2.08 - Meltdown

22 April 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Dylan has a big decision to make as Season 2 of "Bates Motel" comes to an end, but before we pull the trigger on the final two episodes, let's take a quick look back at last night's excellent Episode 2.08, "Meltdown."

In this behind-the-scenes look at the episode, the cast and creators discuss Dylan's role as family protector, Romero's fear of having put away the wrong man, and Norma and Norman's evolving relationship.

"Bates Motel" Episode 2.08 - "Meltdown" (aired 4/21/14)

Romero (Nestor Carbonell) digs for the truth behind Miss Watson’s murder while the war between the drug families presents Dylan (Max Thieriot) with an impossible choice.

Norman (Freddie Highmore) pushes Norma (Vera Farmiga) away when she won’t tell him the truth about his blackouts.

There's No Escape from this Preview of Bates Motel Episode 2.09 - The Box

21 April 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

It doesn't seem possible that just two episodes are left in Season 2 of "Bates Motel," but we like their "always leave 'em wanting more" approach. Because we sure do want more! For now we'll settle for this preview of next week's Episode 2.09, "The Box."

"Bates Motel" Episode 2.09 - "The Box" (airs 4/28/14)

Norma (Vera Farmiga) tries to connect with Norman (Freddie Highmore). Dylan (Max Thieriot) must decide if he should risk his life to save a loved one.

Meanwhile, Romero (Nestor Carbonell) turns to a former colleague for help.

Bates Motel Season 2 Episode 3 Review – Caleb

17 April 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

In its previous episode, Bates Motel teased us with the revelation that the Bates family is bigger than we imagined, with her brother Caleb mentioned. While family reunions tend to be favourable affairs, this is one member whose presence is not welcome, following Norma’s explanation to Norman how her brother used to make her perform sexual acts with him. If those bad memories weren’t enough, Caleb makes his way back into her life as he appears in White Pine Bay this week.

With Caleb in town, Dylan finally got the chance to really connect with someone within his family, especially as both Norman and Norma were at varying ends of the spectrum to him. While the elder of the two brothers took to this new figure from the family, Norma would befriend a number of locals and the show would set up a potential love interest for her. »

We're only four episodes in, and Season 2 of "Bates Motel" has already put series co-star Max Thieriot (Dylan) through the ringer. And it sounds like things are only going to go from bad to worse for him…

A few days ago Thieriot and guest star Kenny Johnson, who just joined the show in Episode 2.03 and plays Dylan's uncle… er, father… er, let's just call him Caleb, took part in a conference call interview in advance of the upcoming Episode 2.05, "The Escape Artist," to tease a bit of what's in store for fans tonight and as the season plays out.

They touched on the hot button topic of the past two eps, incest, of course along with the volatile Bates family dynamics, both in terms of Dylan and Caleb's relationship with each other as well as individually with Norma and Norman. Have we seen the last of Norma's wayward brother? And »

Bates Motel season 2 episode 4 review: Check Out

25 March 2014 11:48 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Michael Noble 26 Mar 2014 - 06:37

Bates Motel plays some neat tricks with symmetry this week. Here's Michael's review...

This review contains spoilers.

2.4 Check Out

For the most part, Bates Motel plays out like high drama in a minor key. Emotions run high but, despite the ongoing effort to establish a plotline about major drug production, the stakes remain relatively low. People may die (and we can be certain that some of the living, breathing characters will not last the season) but the central motivational drive is personal and familial. The show is, for want of a better word, a potboiler. It just happens to be a rather smart one.

It’s smart because it takes a thin central premise (America’s Most Notorious Serial Killer: The High School Years) and does something tender, almost loving with it. It’s evident in the fleshing out of the main characters and, »
