Yes, Mother: A Bates Motel Podcast. Episode 4 “Trust Me”


We found out season 2 of Bates Motel is starting on March 3, which is a couple of weeks before we thought, so we are going to crank these out so we can be finished with season 1 before season 2 starts.

In episode 4 “Trust Me” we find out that Bradley’s father dies.  Norman proves to be a great comfort to Bradley in her time of grief and they end up in Bradley’s bed in what Emily and Sue find as an odd but kind of sweet scene.  We find out Dylan followed Norman to Shelby’s house the night he broke in and thanks to quick thinking, Dylan was able to distract Shelby while Norman escaped out the basement window.   Deputy Shelby attempts to bond with Norman and takes him fishing at his secret fishing spot. Norman tells Norma about the girl he found in Shelby’s basement and she informs Norman that he sometimes sees and hears things that aren’t really there.

A fisherman finds Keith Summer’s severed hand in his fishing net.  Norma is brought into Sheriff Romero’s office to answer more questions about Keith Summer’s death and Norma is not very cooperative.  Dylan and Norman have another bonding experience when Norman tells Dylan all about Keith Summer’s death and the girl he found in Shelby’s basement.  The episode ends with Norma getting arrested for Keith Summer’s death.

Listen along as Emily and Sue recap this exciting episode of Bates Motel.

Yes Mother Podcast Episode #02 – “Nice Town You Picked, Norma…”


In episode 2 of Bates Motel we meet Dylan, Norma’s older son and Norman’s half brother. We see right away that Dylan and Norma do not get along the way Norma and Norman do. Norma gives Sheriff Romero even more reasons to suspect her in the disappearance of Keith Summers. Norma tries to get close to Deputy Shelby which seems to upset Norman. Norma finds out from Deputy Shelby that the town is a little weird and things don’t run like other towns do. Norman has another “episode” and attacks Dylan. Emma comes over to study with Norman and borrows the diary Norman finds in the motel room. Emma has the diary interpreted and tells Norman that it is about sex trafficking and there might be a body buried in the woods. Emma and Norman go on a hike to find where the body is buried and they run across a big pot field and then get chased by men with guns. The episode ends with a body hanging upside down on fire in the middle of town.
