A&E put together a special new “Bates Motel” Season 2 teaser for last night’s Emmy telecast, and in case you missed it, we have a look at the artwork right here!
We still don’t have a firm premiere date for the second season of “Bates Motel” other than sometime in 2014, but we’re pretty sure it’ll be worth the wait.
Here are Max snippets from “Bates Motel” Comic-con panel via Hit Flix live blog.
10:14 a.m. What is Max Thieriot’s take on the Dylan-Bradley relationship. “As Norman’s brother, I’m kinda rooting for whatever’s going to keep me alive and I don’t know what’s going to make him turn,” he says. “That’s the good thing about being Norman Bates. You know you’re going to be there til the end,” Highmore adds.
10:26 a.m. Have he actors pitched any storylines for their characters. Actually, Cuse says that in season’s second episode, there’s a storyline that Vera pitched. He doesn’t want to spoil. Cuse’s cryptic tease for that episode? “Sandman.” INTERESTING. And MEANINGLESS. Cuse teases that Thieriot’s character will have some sex this season.
10:34 a.m. What is Dylan’s long-term purpose? “By giving Norman a brother, it basically signaled that we were not beholden to a literal reproduction of the Hitchcock storyline,” Cuse says. This character is looking in from the outside and looking at the Norman-Norma relationship. “In a way he’s sorta the audience’s way of objectively measuring that relationship,” Cuse says. Thieriot helped the character grow as the writers saw what he was bringing, calling it “an interactive relationship.”
10:50 a.m. Questioner thinks the characters of Max and Emma are like the equivalent of Hurley on “Lost.” However, she hates Nestor on this, but in a good way. She seems to like “Lost.” A lot. “That’s one of the reasons I was drawn to the role. I didn’t much care for him either,” Carbonell says. He promises we’re going to get to know more about his character and the pressure he’s under. “I never want to play likability. I just want to play what my character wants,” he says.
