Talk about fighting the odds! Just about everyone was sure that A&E’s “Bates Motel” would be a colossal flop, but instead we got one of the best adaptations we’ve seen with one of the best casts ever assembled on the small screen. If both Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore aren’t included in this year’s Emmy nominations, there simply is no justice in this world.
But before the accolades for the show’s final season start rolling in, following last night’s incredible finale Episode 5.10, “The Cord,” the network has released a recap video that enables you to catch up on the events that transpired in under five minutes.
We’d just like to take a moment to thank everyone involved with the show – both in front of and behind the camera. It was an incredibly fun, emotional ride; and we couldn’t have been more pleased with the way things turned out for everyone (although we’re still a bit verklempt about the outcome for uber badass Alex Romero).
“Bates Motel” stars Vera Farmiga as Norma Bates, Freddie Highmore as Norman, Max Thieriot as Dylan, Olivia Cooke as Emma, and Nestor Carbonell as the aforementioned Romero. The series is produced by Universal Television for A&E Network. Kerry Ehrin and Carlton Cuse serve as executive producers for Cuse Productions and Kerry Ehrin Productions. Tucker Gates, Vera Farmiga, and Tom Szentgyorgyi also serve as executive producers on the series.
