Critic Reviews for Bates Motel: Season 3

Tthe more the show can bring Kenny Johnson into the same scenes as Farmiga and Highmore, the more crazily intense Bates Motel will be, and that's a good thing.

The Norman we saw here was an unsettling mixed of creepy and clingy. And very different from the boy we first met a few years ago in the series premiere. And it actually makes for some really cool TV.

In what is definitely the strangest "will they/won't they" relationship on TV right now, Norman and Norma continue to be equal parts disturbing and fascinating as a duo.

Bates Motel is a slow-moving show... But it tells emotional stories so well that it's easy to not care when the overarching plot is mostly standing still.

Bates Motel has always been a compelling series, but I'm looking forward to watching Norma and Norman do an intricate dance for relationship domination.

TV Fanatic

It seems likely that we may not get as much high-camp humor as in seasons past, but if the dark tone set by this episode is any indication, there may be plenty of gallows humor to fill the void.
