Things are heating up in the world of Bates Motel. Norman killed whats-her-name's dad, but he did it this time in "self-defense", a claim that may or may not be totally accurate.
So, the interesting part of the show in my opinion is watching this young kid start to unravel. Lately it's really been diving into that whole idea. The blackouts are an interesting half-way point between being a pyscho killer/mom impersonator and his "true" identity of a weird high school kid.
But of course the best part of the episode, as per usual, was the end when it was discovered that Norman's DNA matched the semen sample from his teacher from last season. Which leads to the bigger question... did Norman have sex with his teacher before or after he killed her? That's right, I'm asking the tough questions.
