Bates Motel Recap: Episode 1.06 - The Truth

Outside the door, Norma tried to lie but was caught by the deputy. Right then, the sex slave opened the door, spotted the deputy, and ran off into the night. That discovery scene was kinda amusing, wasn't it?

When Norma threw off the deputy's aim to shoot the girl, he threw Norma to the ground and ran off after the girl.

Dylan arrived home and announced that they got rid of the belt and that Norman would move in with him. Before Norman could even protest, a stunned Norma informed everyone about Deputy Shelby chasing after the girl. She started yelling at Norman why he would leave her. Norman asked her point blank if she killed his father and she denied it.

While they were arguing, Deputy Shelby snuck up with his gun on them. After Dylan surrendered his gun, the deputy marched everyone up to the house.

At the house, the deputy became deranged and started to blame everything on Norman. Norma became alarmed and pleaded with the deputy to not hurt Norman. That only incensed the deputy more and he started beating on Norma. Watching his mother being beaten, Norman became enraged and attacked the deputy who dropped Dylan's gun. After Norman was knocked unconscious, Dylan and the deputy started a shootout. The wounded deputy chased Dylan upstairs while Norma tried to carry Norma outside. She even managed a 911 call before getting Norman into her car.

They saw gun fire in the upstairs windows. Waiting anxiously in the car, a badly wounded deputy staggered out towards them but collapsed before he could fire. That scene looked funny and out of place, didn't it?

Bates Motel: Recap of Episode 1.06 - The Truth - Norma & Dylan

When Dylan came out afterwards, Norma rushed to him and hugged him tight. Is this the first time we see Norma acting motherly towards Dylan?

After checking the dead deputy's pulse, Dylan and Norma noticed Norman in a trance sitting in the car. It was then that Norma finally explained to Dylan what happened the night Norman's father died.

Norma and Norman's father, Sam, were fighting in the living room but when it was violent, Norman who was in the kitchen, went into a trance and attacked Sam with a blender. Norman was still unresponsive afterwards and Norma dragged the body into the garage and made it looked like an accident. When Norman woke up, we were back to the pilot episode's opening scene.

Norma told Dylan that they had to protect Norman. The cops arrived.

Whoa! Did you see this twist coming? All along we thought Norman was driven insane by his mother. How wrong were we? Looked like he got there all by himself. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
