I don’t understand why everyone on the Internet hated last night’s episode. It was magnificent!
In my opinion, this is the one show where there’s consistency in every episode (I had the same feelings about The Following as well).
What I like about Bates Motel is the subtle clues left in the show. I try my best to pay attention to detail from start to finish and you see most of the characters intertwine with each other. It IS a small town after all, so we’re bound to run into the same people at some point.
Everyone who is criticising the VERY END of the episode; are you not paying attention?! I’m being serious, that ending opens up the opportunity for season 2, shows Norman isn’t getting better and NOW we know who Miss Watson is!
She plays a bigger role than the Norman’s teacher (who pushes for the inappropriate teacher-student relationship) — her necklace pendant has the letter “B” on it.
In the last episode 1.09 Underwater, Bradley freaks out to Dylan over letters they found in her dad’s old office with the indication he had an affair. It was signed “B” and the exact way it was written was how it appeared on Miss Watson’s necklace. So many secrets in this town and I hope it gets even better.
Who is this Eric that Miss Watson was arguing with on the cellphone anyway? I want to say the Sheriff Alex Romero (for fun to see where that goes) or the therapist since he’s evaluating Norman. But it’s probably a new character which I wouldn’t mind seeing anyway.
Definitely a finale that did not disappoint!
