'Bates Motel' season 2 synopsis

See also

Fans of "Bates Motel" have been waiting a long time for season 2 to air and in just a few weeks, the wait will be over. There haven't been many spoilers so it is hard to predict what will happen next. However, on Feb. 10, Dread Central revealed the synopsis for the second season and it sounds like the creepiness factor will be kicked up a notch along with more mystery, drama and secrets.

The first part of the synopsis reads,

"In Season 2 of “Bates Motel,” executive producers Carlton Cuse (“Lost”) and Kerry Ehrin (“Friday Night Lights”) dig deeper into the twisted world of the Bates family. Picking up from last season, Norman (Freddie Highmore) is fixating on Miss Watson’s death while Norma’s mysterious past starts to haunt the family with the introduction of her brother."

Previous spoilers have revealed that Norma's brother appearing will cause some tension, especially since Norma says that he sexually abused her when they were younger.

The synopsis continues,

"Meanwhile, Norman’s brother, Dylan (Max Thieriot), gets more entrenched in the familial drug war that fuels White Pine Bay and finds himself right in the middle of the danger as Bradley (Nicola Peltz), who remains on the hunt to uncover her father’s killer, is driven to precarious extremes. Sheriff Romero (Nestor Carbonell), is caught up on all fronts as everything in town escalates, and Emma (Olivia Cooke) complicates her relationship with Norman as the duo explore new love interests, bringing new and old characters along for the ride."

A sneek peek clip showed Norma changing the sheets on a bed only to discover a spot of blood. When she strips the bed, she is surprised to see that the mattress is covered in it. Will this actually happen or be some sort of dream? As a mother who deeply loves Norman, she will no doubt go to great lengths to protect him.

Also, it has been reported that Norma will be getting a new love interest, but things never seem to work out for her. Will this be the same?

"Bates Motel" season 2 will premiere on March 3.
