‘Bates Motel’ Goes Down the Drain in Familiar Season 4 Promo
Every year brings A&E’s Bates Motel closer in line with its cinematic origins, but is Season 4 finally the year Norman sends his mother down the drain? A new 2016 promo hints at some familiar Psycho imagery, and an ominous end for Norman’s favorite future basement decoration.
Absent any footage of its March premiere, Bates Motel dropped its first official Season 4 promo this weekend, heavily hinting toward a certain bloody shower drain that becomes a key fixture in Norman (Freddie Highmore)’s life. There’s no telling what the show could look like without Norma (Vera Farmiga), but Norman has to take on her persona full-time eventually, right?
So reads the first official synopsis for Bates Motel Season 4:
This season Norma becomes increasingly fearful and desperate, going to great lengths to find Norman the professional help he needs. This further complicates their once unbreakable trust while Norman struggles to maintain his grip on reality. Sheriff Romero (Nestor Carbonell) once again finds himself drawn back into Norma and Norman’s lives. Will things finally heat up between Norma and the other man in her life, Sheriff Romero, and just how much further will he go to protect her?
Already renewed for Season 5, Bates Motel will return for Season 4 on March 7, so check out the teaser above and book your next stay.
