Bates Motel Season 2 spoilers: Will more Bates family members be arriving?
No sooner has the first season of Bates Motel wrapped up than spoilers are starting to emerge for Season 2.
It looks like the series – which is a modern-day spin on the characters from Psycho – will be introducing some more members of the Bates family. Remember in the season 1 finale when Norma admitted to her son that she had been forced to have sex with her brother when she was younger? This does somewhat explain her neediness towards Norman. It was also implied that Norman had killed his school teacher. It certainly left us with a lot of questions for season 2.
Season 2 of Bates Motel starts shooting in July with the tentative release date of early 2014. What we know so far is that Executive Producer Carlton Cuse being quoted as saying:
“We would be remiss if we didn’t meet some other members of the Bates family, I don’t want to say who, but we are definitely going to learn about their family tree, which has more twisty branches.”
This has led some people to speculate that we might see Norma’s brother, Dylan’s father or some other member of the Bates family. Cuse has also stated that Norma is going to get a love interest next season and we may find out more about Sheriff Romeo’s home life and past.
There is also some speculation that Dylan’s dad might actually be Norma’s brother. Now wouldn’t that be an amazing twist? It would certainly explain why Norma doesn’t have the same protectiveness towards Dylan and has been openly hostile to him at times. I wonder how Norman would deal with that. I suspect that Norman is going to deal with things in an escalating murderous manner.
If it’s possible that Dylan is Norman’s cousin as well as his brother, then that certainly would give an element of truth to Cuse’s statement about “twisty branches” on the Bates family tree!
Which Member of the Bates family do you want to see? And, who is Norman going to kill next? Let me know in the comments down below and I will keep you posted with all future news for Bates Motel Season 2.
