Bates Motel Goes a 'Little Mad' in Season 3 Teaser

After two years of build-up, it looks like Bates Motel is “going there.”

In this first look at the A&E chiller’s third season (which kicks off March 9 at 9/8c), Norma (Vera Farmiga) and Norman (Freddie Highmore) put their borderline incestuous relationship, ahem, to bed, setting the stage for his tragic transformation into the wiggy, knife-wielding Peeping Tom of Psycho infamy.

Mother even utters the line for which the movie version of her son is so well known: “We all go a little mad sometimes.”

Go ahead and press PLAY — if you dare. Then hit the comments with your hopes for the new season. Are you excited to get to this point in the story or bummed because you know how badly it’s going to go for all parties involved?

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Tee hee…I fear a little more for Dylan’s well being this particular season. Especially now that he and Norma are getting along.

      as much as i like Dylan i have never expected him to survive the series.

    • Bwhit says:

      Dylan is my favorite character. I am happy with every season he survives but I have a feeling Norman is going to do him in.

      Mmhm. Anytime anyone dares to get close to Norman and/or Norma, a little voice in my head is going, “Run. Run as far away as you possibly can.”
      OOOOOOOOOOOOOH. This season looks like it’s going to be intense. And good. I got chills watching that promo. Can’t wait to see it.
      Nice song choice in the promo, too.

  2. I can’t wait for season 3. The promo looks so good.

  3. Kait says:

    Oh man this season is gonna be good! Took me about 10 tries to pause and see who was on top of each other around 49 seconds (pretty sure it was Emma and Norman)

  4. Brian says:

    Can’t wait!

  5. Matt C. says:

    I missed this show so much. I’ve been watching season 2 on Netflix and I forgot how much I love the characters. March can’t come soon enough.

  6. Joey Padron says:

    Good and intense promo. Excited to see new season next month!

  7. Sabrina says:

    Great promo. I can’t wait for the 3rd season.

    Nevermind, I found the song on the promo. Just in case anyone else wants to know, the song is “Enjoy The Silence” By: Denmark+Wynter.
