Here we were paying attention to the Bates in "Bates Motel," but there are killers apparently everywhere on this show. Season 2 of the hit A&E show kicked off with a four-month jump, and a surprising turn for Norman's girl-crush, Bradley.
As E! Online's Tierney Bricker put it, "Bradley ends the hour seducing Gil, her father's former employee and Dylan's boss, only to blow his brains out. (With a gun, you pervs.) And who should she turn to for help in covering up her crime but Norman Bates!” It's no wonder Norman turned out the way he did, with all these murderers around him.
Over at Zap2It, Terri Schwartz used that moment to extrapolate a theory. "While [Bradley] might now turn to [Norman] because he told her that she could trust him with anything, it could also be because he knew she killed Miss Watson before he blacked out and forgot it," she mused. "In fact, the more we think about it, the more we're getting behind this theory.”
Things are getting darker in Season 2 of "Bates Motel," continuing on Monday nights at 9 p.m. EST on A&E.
