Fans of Norman Bates and “Mother” will be saddened to learn that tonight begins the final season of the A&E Original Series “The Bates Motel”. This is the fifth season and while I didn’t watch it myself, I know a lot of the horror minded geeks in my world are fans so we aim to please here. Check out one of the creepy posters, some plot premise and the cast down below.
The fifth season will begin two years after the death of Norma. Publicly happy and well-adjusted, Norman struggles at home, where his violent blackouts are increasing as “Mother” threatens to take him over completely. Meanwhile, Dylan and Emma, now with lives of their own, find themselves drawn back into Norman’s world, while Romero hungers for revenge against his stepson.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve already made mention that I never saw this show over the last four seasons and considering the hefty amount of programs I am currently involved in keeping up on, I don’t think that I will be even recording the final go round. I’ll be sure to look into the On Demand ability of it or hope it comes to Netflix so I can binge watch at some point after this ends. Are you a fan of this show already and have you been keeping up on it? What do you think about it ending after five seasons? Chime in down below but try to leave any spoilers out of it. I mean we do know this is heading towards what happens in the first “Psycho” film of course but you know what I mean. See you next time and know that I am aiming to include more Horror themed stuff like this coming at you based on numerous requests that I do so.
