Synopsis Bates Motel Season 5
Two years after the death of Norma, Norman is now living alone and running the Bates Motel. He stays with “Mother”, whom he believes faked her death. Dylan and Emma are now married with an infant daughter, and are unaware of Norma’s death. Caleb shows up at their house, much to the stress of Dylan.
Later, Emma asks Caleb to leave for Dylan’s sake. Romero is in prison and is denied parole. He sends a man to kill Norman, but Norman murders him instead and later finds his wallet but remembers nothing. Norman also meets Madeleine Loomis, who resembles Norma. She asks Norman to attend a small business meeting in town, which he agrees to, but “Mother” refuses to let him drive due to his blackouts.
“Mother” then reveals the murder to Norman, as they decide to dump the corpse in a lake. While disposing of the body, the man’s phone rings. Norman answers it to hear Romero’s voice.
