'Bates Motel': The Best and Craziest Moments from Season 1
The creators of Bates Motel didn’t limit their first season to exploring the close, yet incredibly dysfunctional relationship between a teenage Norman and his mother. Some of the groundwork was laid that explains adult Norman’s mental instability, but viewers also got the chance to know Norman’s real mother, Norma, as opposed to the shriveled remains her son kept long after her death. White Pine Bay, a town with a myriad of secrets and a very particular brand of justice, is a wonderfully depraved backdrop for Norman’s descent into madness. Here are just a few of the season’s best moments.
