They definitely should take a page out of Hannibal's book and make this show more "cinematic" looking.

What worries me is reading Carlton Cuse's (creator) tweets last night. He claimed they are "telling their own story" and it's "NOT the movie". Telling their own story is fine and well, and they've done a great job so far while still keep it faithful to 'Psycho'. But if he's planning on giving us a very different end game than what 'Psycho' is, I will be pissed.

All I need to see (someday down the line) is Norma's dead body preserved in the house, with Norman acting on her behalf with dual personalities. That's it. Not hard to do. Cuse can modernize it all he wants, leave out the other characters from 'Psycho', but just keep Norman's end game intact. That's all I ask.

I think the perfect ending for the series would be to have a character named Marion Crane check into the motel, and we see that Norman is attracted to her. Later that night, after they chat over a sandwich, Marion returns to her room to take a shower. Suspense builds as we see the bathroom door open through the shower curtain and a woman's figure enters. The shower curtain is yanked aside, revealing Norman (dressed as his mother) raising a large butcher knife in the air and...cut to black. Series concluded.

The ending should be when Norman kills Norma and takes over for the hotel. There were plenty of girls before Marion, or at least I'm pretty sure because they found multiple bodies. I always took it as it happened five to ten years after Norma died.

True wtf moment for me when Norma revealed the sexual abuse she went through as a kid to Norman. Totally misguided and somewhat manipulative. If she really worried she was going to die that night she should have just told him that she loved him.

But what better way to say goodbye to your child than to tell them your brother used to force sex on you.

I've to admit, I got some gripes with parts of the show but I'm willing to give it a shot next season, also Emma>Bradley, I hope even Dylan doesn't more scenes with her next season.

She's ridiculous, but at least it's intentional on the writers part.

I loved the scene of her screaming at the guy who called her a jackass after bumping into him. But, in all honesty, if I had her for a mother, I'd probably start serial killing as well.

I hope they get the rights to use a little bit of the original "psycho" music.

Keck's Exclusives: More Family Members Checking In To Bates Motel
by William Keck

A&E's Bates Motel upped its ick factor in the season finale when Norma (Vera Farmiga) admitted to her son Norman (Freddie Highmore) that as a girl she was forced to have sex with her brother. This revelation paves the way for the introduction of Norma's sibling next season, which starts shooting in late July for an early 2014 return.

"We would be remiss if we didn't meet some other members of the Bates family," says executive producer Carlton Cuse. "I don't want to say who, but we are definitely going to learn about their family tree, which has more twisty branches."

"With a lot of sticky sap," adds Farmiga, who has already been clued in to Norma's parentage. "There is one family member I desperately want to meet."

Nestor Carbonell has also been told that next season will reveal the home life of his corrupt character, Sheriff Alex Romero. But "the big question mark is Dylan's dad," Highmore says of Norman's half-brother. "There's certainly a story to be told there."

While the arrival of Norma's kin will cause her even more angst, Cuse does offer one tidbit of good news for Mama Bates: "Norma will find romance next year with someone we haven't yet met." And that couldn't come at a better time, says Farmiga. "She sure needs it. Her neediness gives her an urgent desire to touch and kiss Norman, and that need should probably be filled by someone other than her son." Ya think?

Anyone think we might see Emma Spool or some version of her?

Even though I knew she wasn't American before the show started, it shocks me to hear her real accent after watching her all season...

She nails the American accent. Highmore... not quite as much.

Seems like almost every American show has a few non-actors these days.
