Fans have been waiting forever for the second season of "Bates Motel" and while there still is two months more to wait, the time for it to air is getting closer. With the premiere date closing in, new spoilers are being released. One of those was published on Jan. 3 by International Business Times. The report discusses whether Norma's new boyfriend is a good guy or someone evil.

Warning: If you do not want to know "Bates Motel" season 2 spoilers, then stop reading.

Norma Bates, played by Vera Farmiga, hasn't had the best of luck with men. She is the type of character that always ends up with the wrong ones. But will George (Michael Vartan) be any different? It turns out she may have finally met someone good this time. Vera told TV Guide,

“He’s everything she ever hoped for in a man."

Vartan added,

"She’s finally finding some stability with a partner after a pretty bad track record. Hopefully she won’t mess it up.”

George is recently divorced, charming and his sister, Christine, is a member of White Pine Bay's "upper circle." In addition to her finding love, Christine will be Norma's first female friend. It is through her that the two lovebirds meet when she throws a party and suggests that Norma would be a good fit for George. But things don't go too smoothly when George, Norma, Christine and her husband go on a double date together.

So, is his character too good to be true? Will he turn out to be evil? Vartan insists that George is a nice guy. He told TV Guide,

“Before I accepted the job, I asked the producers, ‘Be honest with me. He’s going to turn out to be a complete psycho, right?’ And they said, ‘Sorry. He’s just a really nice guy with no weird skeletons in his closet.”

After Norma split from her first husband, she married Sam Bates. They ended up in an abusive situation and Norman hit his father over the head, which killed him. Norma protected her son and covered it up, then used the insurance money to move to White Pine Bay to get a fresh start. Then she met Detective Shelby, but he didn't turn out to be such a great guy. Norma and her two sons found out that he was involved in a sex slave ring and he died during a gunfight. Hopefully Norma will have better luck with George.

One thing that she won't have very good luck is with her family and business. The motel isn't going to do very well because of the new highway, Norman appears to be a killer, Dylan is caught up in a drug ring and Caleb will be showing up on her doorstep.

What do you think will happen with George on "Bates Motel" season 2?
