The A&E thriller drama series “Bates Motel” Season 4 finale is approaching fast. Titled as “Norman”, the 4th season’s finale has some romance and fun stored for the audience, as teased recently by show-runners.
The show’s executive producers, Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin, have hinted the episode 10 (finale episode) in a couple of interviews following the airing of episode 9 “Forever.”
As revealed by Cuse, the 10th episode is directed by Tucker Gates whereas the script is developed by by Ehrin . The season-ender picks up where the penultimate episode left off.
“In episode 10 [‘Norman’], which is really a brilliant script that Kerry wrote, is really the continuation of the story,” Cuse informed Yahoo “It picks right up where [‘Forever’] left off, and it both sort of pragmatically and, more important, emotionally, answers all the questions that you have coming out of episode 9.”
Cuse continued that fans will also witness more of Dylan (Max Thieriot) and Romero’s (Nestor Carbonell) subplots in the end of “Bates Motel”.
“There’s more to come with the Romero crime story in [episode] 10, for sure, and with Dylan, too,” Cuse said, before noting that fans haven’t also seen the last of Chick (Ryan Hurst).

Ehrin explained the finale as a “traditional cliffhanger ending.” “I think it’s so important to us to kind of give a good emotional ending to the season and also … to reinvent a little bit and get inside what that looks like,” she told Yahoo TV.
Ehrin also revealed, “Episode 10 has a romance to it.” “[But] the most shocking thing about it is that it has a little bit of a sense of fun,” she added.
When questioned how the season 4 finale of “Bates Motel” compares to the show’s previous season-finales, Cuse notified The Hollywood Reporter : “It … really plumbs deeper psychologically into where the character’s been and it also sets in motion the fifth season.”
He continued, “For Kerry and I, this is a plan that we started talking about the very first year of the show and was part of why we wanted to define the journey of the show as being five seasons. It’s a show that has a defined beginning, middle and end, and we are now moving into the end game. If you think of the narrative of the show over its life, going from A to Z, we’re now getting to those last letters of the alphabet. That’s really fun as a writer and I think will be really compelling for the audience to watch.”
All these teasers appear as extreme means of climax in the finale of “Bates Motel” season 4 titled “Norman,” which airs on Monday, May 16, at 9 p.m. on A&E.
