Bates Motel 2.04 Review: “Check Out”

Now that we know that Caleb is Dylan’s father, I think we can all agree that this information explains a lot about Norma and her treatment of her two sons. The vastly different ways she treats them actually. Norman is hers, period. He is her all, her confessor, her secret-keeper, her favorite. Dylan is the mistake laid upon her, her cross to bear to be dramatic as Norma is wont to do.

This episode of Bates Motel is all about knowledge; who knows what and what they do with what they know. Dylan believes that Norman knew everything, although he only knew about the abuse. Emma doesn’t know what happened that night between her and the boy at the party (for the record, nothing).  The Sheriff tells Morgan he doesn’t know how things work in town anymore.
