Mother will be making another appearance in next week’s episode of Bates Motel. And it looks like she’ll be getting quite comfortable as she takes her place between Norman and Dr. Edwards. Is Dr. Edwards safe? Can he manage both sides of Norman without getting a little banged up?
We also see our lovely Norman going off the rails yet again. “You’re going to destroy my life? Go right the hell ahead!” she screams at someone off-screen. Is it Caleb? We see him answering her phone call at one point in the preview. But I have a feeling it could be someone else…
Norman, perhaps? For a brief moment, it looks as if Norman escapes Pineview yet again. And if the title of this episode is anything to go by, it’s very possible that Norman is aching to go home and be with Norma. That’s all well and good, except that Norma is kind of tied up in Romero right now. I imagine that won’t be too smooth a transition for Norman.
Oh! And it looks like Dylan finds the stuffed bunny that Emma’s mother brought with her to the Bates home. How incriminating for Norman. How sad for Emma.
