It’s hard that tonight is the second season finale of Bates Motel! This season has flown by – and been rather explosive!
We recently chatted with Bates Motel‘s leading man, Freddie Highmore, who of course places Norman Bates. We asked him how this season finale would compare to the first season finale, and while he couldn’t give us any spoilers
“I think in the tenth episode especially and perhaps number eight that we’ve already see, we start to see this small manipulative side to Norman that starts to question whether or not, you know, question our allegiance to him and sort of support and backing of it, which has been great fun as an actor to play because you play against the sense of what people thing Norman should be like.” Highmore revealed.
“But then there comes a point where I think, you know, to what extent can you continue to support his actions.” Highmore continues. “And with Norman’s kind of growing realization of who he is and who he might become and what he’s capable of comes this sense of power for him. And what I think is great about the tenth episode is, you know, to what extent would that power Norman take as sort of self (solicit) decision or a selfish decision. And by the end of the episode do we – are we still with him or not.”
