“Bates Motel” made a splash when it premiered its modern day reimagining of “Psycho” on A&E earlier in the year. The first season ended with a cliffhanger showing with Freddie Highmore’s Norman Bates seemingly committing a murder, and fans shouldn’t expect for it to take long for the facts surrounding Miss Watson’s death to be revealed.
“At that moment with Miss Watson it’s not immediately obvious which conclusion to draw. This show is infinitely more exciting for that, especially when your main characters are so ambiguous, you find yourself almost rooting for Norman despite the fact you know he’s going to become this infamous serial killer,” Highmore tells Zap2it while promoting the Sept. 17 release of the “Bates Motel” Season 1 Blu-ray. “That conflict is what makes the show fun — for me, anyway.”

Nestor Carbonell, who plays Sheriff Romero on the show, similarly suggests audiences remain skeptical about the murder. “Assuming it was Norman. You never know,” he says of the implied murder. “One of the great things about this show is, even with cliffhangers, they’re pretty much dealt with head-on, so the payoff is always going to be there. We definitely tackle that pretty quickly in Season 2 and the ramifications of what happened with the teacher at the end of Season 1. Not that it’s all wrapped up in a neat bow, but it’s definitely being dealt with for sure.”
It’s unclear how Romero’s relationship with the Bates’ will change — if at all — going into Season 2. In Season 1, he was hot on Norma’s trail after the death of his friend Keith Summers, but the pair reached an uneasy truce by the season’s end. Whether Romero ends up being suspicious of Norman in regards to Miss Watson’s death or not, his relationship with Norma will likely remain strained.

“I think he’s always going to butt heads with Norma to a certain extent because they’re both control freaks,” Carbonell says. “They go about it in different ways, but they’re both trying to control the situation. I don’t think he’s used to getting anybody to say no to him or really to go against him as much as she does.”

Highmore teases that Season 2 will continue to show Norman trying to navigate his life amid his blackouts. This will lead Norman on a “journey of greater self-awareness,” Highmore says, so it’s unclear how that will alter Norman as a sympathetic character on the show.

During the roundtable interviews held for the show during the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con, Dead Central spoke with series creators and cast members. Max talked about what he’d like to see for his character in the upcoming season:

What Max would most like to see for Dylan in the new year is for him to climb the ladder at work. After all, he’s still waiting to meet the big boss. Although, he said, we can never forget “eventually Dylan’s fate is fairly certain… You can’t get out of the business.” He’s also very much looking forward to meeting his uncle.

“Bates Motel” will be back in 2014, and as soon as we learn the premiere date, we’ll pass it on!
