Read EW.com’s ‘Bates Motel’ Postmortem: Norman’s Memory, Dillon’s [SPOILER], and ‘Burning Flame’ Between Norma and Romero

What we initially thought was probably going to be a stupid show (early in the first season) has really gained momentum, and we’re no longer content DVR-ing and watching Bates Motel later, but watching it when it airs. Vera Famiga just keeps topping herself with her performance as Norma Bates (and the supporting cast aren’t too shabby either), giving what could have been a one-note character many facets (our hearts actually broke for her more than once in tonight’s episode). We’re actually rooting for her… even though we know how it’s all going to end.
