‘Bates Motel’ Season 3 Gets March Premiere, Spoilery New Synopsis
‘Bates Motel’ hasn’t been bashful about offering a peep or two of new horror, but the fledgling ‘Psycho’ is officially off the wall for a season 3 return. A&E has taken a stab at scheduling ‘Bates Motel’ season 3's official March premiere, with a brand-new spoilery synopsis of twists and turns to come.
The third season of Freddie Highmore and Vera Farmiga‘s’‘Psycho’ prequel will arrive at the ‘Bates Motel’ on March 9 at 9:00 P.M., immediately followed by the premiere of Carlton Cuse remake ‘The Returned.’ Meanwhile, the latest ‘Bates Motel’ season 3 synopsis puts cards on the table as to the worsening status of Norman Bates’ fragile psyche, also teasing the return of a character who spent a summer with Mark Wahlberg fighting giant robots:
After a blissful summer of closeness with his mother, living within the safe confines of home and the Bates Motel, Norman’s fears about what really happened with Blaire Watson resurface and Norma questions what really happened. Forced to look at the truths about Norman for the first time, their deeply intricate relationship continues to evolve. Norma finds herself turning to the other man in her life, Norman’s half-brother, Dylan (Max Thieriot) and begins to rely on him in ways that she never expected. This relationship inevitably triggers jealousy in Norman and a new kind of love triangle between Norma and her two sons erupts.
Estranged brother and uncle, Caleb (Kenny Johnson) returns to haunt the family throughout the season challenging the family bond even further. Pressures of the outside world take a hold of the family when newcomers Kevin Rahm (“Mad Men,” “Desperate Housewives”), Tracy Spiradakos (“Revolution”) and Ryan Hurst (“Sons of Anarchy”) arrive at White Pine Bay. After a summer of living at the Bates Motel, Sheriff Romero (Nestor Carbonell) and Norma have grown closer but there will always have that troubling question mark surrounding Norman. Something doesn’t feel right, but spite of his instincts, Romero finds himself continually drawn back to the Bates family – and to Norma.
Emma (Olivia Cooke) also determined to find out what is happening to Norman becomes more emboldened, fearless, goes after the things she wants. Familiar face, Bradley (Nicola Peltz) returns to surprise the family and digs up old memories.
