Airing back-to-back on A&E Monday nights are both “Bates Motel” and “Those Who Kill”, who popular genre series.
I was one of the sympathizers of the first season of “Bates,” but after two absolutely dreadful episodes here in the second season, I’m about ready to tap out. Last night’s episode was dreadful. With the introduction of a new family member, I can only hope next week’s Episode 2.03, “Caleb”, restores my faith. In it, “Dylan tries to bridge the gap between Norma and her brother Caleb, who shows up at the motel. Norma meets an ally in her battle to stop the bypass. Emma’s memorial for a friend leads to a new relationship. Norman falls under the influence of a townie girl.“
We also have a promo for next week’s “Those Who Kill,” Episode 2.03 “Rocking the Boat.” In it, “As the killing escalates, Catherine uses the investigation of the two victims to push Thomas to research her allegations further.” I haven’t been able to catch last night’s episode just yet, but I did enjoy the season premiere quite a bit.
