Norman resists psychiatric commitment and grimly blames Norma even more bitterly after accidentally finding out she sought to have him committed against his will, yet sees no better alternative to the worse public facility, hence enters but stays aloof of any therapy or patient, even friendly age-peer Julian Howe, who proves a very helpful mentor. Dylan wants a clean future with Emma, hence wants out of the drug business, and is surprised when he reluctantly comes fire his weed plantation assistant that he's already sort of written off himself. Sheriff Alex Romero made all arrangements to have Norman committed as his bride's charge and insists to make the marriage credible, despite the mere registrar's wedding, as a found-out fake could compromise his career as well.

At the restaurant when Norma and Alex finish their first drink, Alex is taking the bottle from the ice and about to pour more wine. However in the next shot, both the drinks are already filled. Also the bottle of wine keeps changing position. It is sometimes on the left side of the white decoration flower and sometimes on its right side. See more »

Bates Motel

Anthony Cipriano, Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin, it took these names to recreate the Hitchcockian legacy, balancing the fame and art, it is TV horror- something that hasn't quite cultivated as it has in cinematic life- among the best. First of all, it is one of those rare spin-off that works, it bucks the trend, but that's not saying a lot considering that we haven't had major success in such derivations. And it is to not be easily forgotten that even a huge funded show as such, the series took some time before it started running on the field smoothly. Some might give it a few episodes, personally I think it was from the third season where they finally agreed, in sync, to what or how they have to showcase this troublesome family. And it is a family event.

Unlike the films, this one deals majorly with the reasoning and history of why these members were pushed like such. And as far as that part is concerned, I find that they are hitting all the notes on the right scale. Do notice that whenever a family drama is involved, the chapters soar above all the other genre it claims to be. Some of the best elements are them, these family members, trying to resist and accept each other in the middle of this blood bath and crime sites that they take along with them, wherever they go.

Another expected outcome, is the performance of the cast. The creators have invested smartly on Vera Farmiga and she serves the appetite you were expecting from her. What's surprising is, Freddie Highmore- especially in third season where he transforms from something innocent to less innocent- pouring his soul out, he crafts this infamous character with precision and watery communicative eyes. Just watching these two reside in Bates Motel, makes the day for me.

Til Death Do You Apart

Against popular opinion, I like this calm and soothing chapter- of course, in its own ways- that dares to build something in the middle of this chaos. Also, Carbonell's character is by far the best and most evolved character that is wrapped as a delightful surprising gift that we all ought to adore.
