Bates Mo­tel Sea­son 4 (15)

Rutherglen Reformer - - Reviews -

Fred­die High­more’s Nor­man Bates gets ever closer to his shower-stab­bing ways in the penul­ti­mate sea­son of the Psy­cho TV pre­quel.

He and Vera Farmiga are still the show’s shining lights as the twisted mother and son.

Nestor Car­bonell’s Sher­iff Romero is given a more meaty role as Max Thieriot and Olivia Cooke’s love­birds take more of a back seat.

Some of the plot strands feel a lit­tle forced and un­re­al­is­tic and Nor­man and Norma are kept apart too long.

But the sea­son re­ally gath­ers steam to­wards the end, cul­mi­nat­ing in a mo­ment that shocks de­spite the fact you know it’s com­ing.

It’s all set up very nicely for the fi­nal se­ries, with Ri­hanna join­ing the fray.
