Five seasons of Bates Motel have inevitably built toward one Psycho moment, even going so far as to hire Rihanna in the role of Alfred Hitchcock’s most famous kill. That said, last night’s “Marion” took a major swerve from the 1960 film, for which producers explain why the new shower scene was “definitely not throwing shade” at a classic.
Apart from watching Bates Motel’s Norman finally ascend the Psycho mantle, fans are surely keen for the final season to bring Rihanna’s take on classic Psycho character Marion Crane. You needn’t drill any holes for a closer look in the latest Season 5 trailers, which also offers a closer look at Norman’s newfound relationship with his icy mother.
The moment Bates Motel announced that Rihanna would join the fifth and final season as the most famous Psycho victim of all, we knew we had to see it to believe it. Good news! New photos and footage from the final season reveal the “Umbrella” singer in all her glory, and apparently in need of one as well.
