After the death of her husband, Norma Bates buys a motel in the picturesque coastal town of White Pine Bay, giving herself and teenage son Norman a chance to begin anew. Shy Norman is reluctant at first, but with the help of his mother -- with whom he shares an intensely close relationship -- the boy begins to open up to others and make new friends. Some locals, however, aren't as friendly and welcoming to the Bates, who discover that because White Pine Bay isn't as peaceful as it appears, they are forced to do whatever it takes to survive. The drama series, from executive producers Carlton Cuse ("Lost") and Kerry Ehrin ("Friday Night Lights") and inspired by the seminal 1960 horror film "Psycho," explores the formative years of Norman Bates and how his complicated bond with his mother forged a serial killer.
The show has delivered on its commitment to honest storytelling, because when it came down to it, there were no theatrics, no camp, just a modest narrative about death, in all its minor ignominies. Norman spent all episode staving off the abyss of his grief, and when it finally hit, he was ready to die. And with that, Norman Bates, the young man with a connection to the young boy, dies. It’s a heartbreaking death, because Norman’s heart is broken. When it’s sutured back together, by Norma/n, he isn’t the same. He won’t be. None of us are the same when someone we love dies. We just don’t usually shut off the loss and become another version of ourselves entirely. But that’s the story of "Bates Motel": It’s a story of tragedy, writ small.--Alex McCown, A.V.
