While Norman Bates may have seemingly proved his “innocence” with a polygraph test during the end of “Bates Motel” season 2, we already know quite a bit about the admissibility of these such things in court. Therefore, don’t look at that incident as a sign that Romero is going to leave the young man alone for very long at all when the show returns to A&E next year.
As a matter of fact, series star Freddie Highmore tells Entertainment Weekly in a new interview that there is probably going to be a certain amount of movement on the story when the show returns, and you can expect Romero’s actions to once again create some chaos in White Pine Bay:
“Romero has closed that case … But in the third season, his suspicions are aroused once again by a certain incident, so that uncertainty around who Norman really is sparks off again in his mind.”
Ultimately, we feel like this story will be an excellent one just from the standpoint of bringing so many different elements to the table now. Obviously you have Norman more in touch with who he really is, but what does he choose to do about it? What is Norma going to do about? You have these issues, and then you have everything with Dylan trying to find a place for himself, and some of the other potential romances that are going to be a key part of this crazy story.
The new season of “Bates Motel” should premiere in March.
