Bates Motel season 5 episode 5 spoilers: Rihanna checks in (promo)

Are you ready for the saga of Bates Motel to rise to another level, one that is especially iconic? Well, let’s just say that Bates Motel season 5 episode 5 is going to accomplish that courtesy of Rihanna’s Marion Crane checking in. If you know the movie Psycho, then odds are that you already know a thing or two about what could happen here. There’s no guarantee that it could for sure, mostly because this is a show working to tell its own story more so than it is trying to just copy another one floating around out there.

There are ultimately two selling points that are abundantly clear here. First, you’ve got the presence of an iconic character. Then, it just so happens that the character is played by Rihanna. It’s still somewhat-amazing that the casting worked out, but we’re glad that it is since it further shows that she is the sort of person who does what she wants to do, as opposed to doing what some people in suits tell her is the right thing. This is exciting, since it could lead to some other exciting gigs from her in the future even after this one is over.

Without further ado, though, let’s go ahead and hand down a little more information in terms of what could be coming next on Bates Motel moving into the episode.

Bates Motel season 5 episode 5 synopsis – “Norman attempts to piece together Mother’s movements. Elsehwere: Dylan and Emma confront an ugly truth while Sam’s girlfriend Marion makes a spur-of-the-moment decision with far-reaching consequences.”

If you think about it, we’re getting to the halfway point of the final season, and there is already a heck of a lot of crazy stuff that we’ve had a chance to see on the show so far. Where do we go from here? It’s hard to say for certain, but we do know judging from the promo below that Norman Bates is getting incredibly good at dodging questions about his culpability. We suppose that he has to if he wants to continue his life as a psychopath who still functions as a part of the world.

Rest assured that once there is some further creepy details on what lies ahead, we’ll have them for you here.
