Leading up to its March 9th premiere, Bates Motel Season 3 is being slowly teased, much like Norman’s evolution into the Psycho killer we all know he is destined to become. In fact, that connection has never been more clear, and it appears that the new season will truly begin that transformation.
Two new trailers have been released today, titled “Boom Boom” and “Changing.” In “Boom Boom,” the ghost of Blair Watson (Keegan Connor Tracy) recites a poem to Norman (Freddie Highmore), as a body lies bloated in the water. Then, in the great tradition of mixing a children’s song with creepy scenes, the horror-factor multiplies exponentially.
In “Changing,” Norman confesses to Norma (Vera Farmiga) that something is changing within him that he finds overwhelming. “I think there’s something wrong with me.” Meanwhile, Norman fondles his mothers clothes and undergarments. Yeah, something is … off.
Alos, in these trailers and the first trailer, “Normal” a new, sexy resident of White Pines Bay is teased. Might she be Norman’s next victim? Or is Norma (who Norman is still sharing a bed with at 18 years old …) in danger of becoming her son’s victim this year? Hopefully not, as Farmiga’s performance is what makes the series so expectational. Still, the beast seems to be on the brink of being fully unleashed …
Bates Motel returns to A&E March 9th at 9 p.m.
