As much fun as Bates Motel has had building Norman Bates up for a Psycho fall, sooner or later, Mother’s got to go. That time might have come by the first Season 4 trailer, as young Norman has fully taken to wearing her mothers clothes, while the family around them crumbles.

It’s been some time since we’ve checked in for a stay at A&E’s Bates Motel, and it seems another famous horror property will be setting up shop nextdoor this March.

The Bates Motel has once again closed up shop for another season, and with it Norma and Norman inched ever-closer to their Alfred Hitchcock Psycho roots.
