"Bates Motel" Season 2 looks like it's going to seriously amp up the creepy factor from Season 1. Two new promos for the new season, courtesy of TVLine, show that bad things will soon be happening for both Norma and Norman Bates.

For Norma, she finds her son's bed slowly filling with blood in her promo. Considering he maybe-most-likely killed Miss Watson, that could be where the blood is stemming from.

But viewers who know Norman's "Psycho" storyline know he only gets darker from here on out, so the blood on the bed could just reflect the fresh blood that he'll be causing. That's what makes Norman's promo, which features him perfecting his taxidermy, so foreboding. That look on Freddie Highmore's face is a better taste of what's to come than anything else in these videos.

"Bates Motel" reopens for business in March on A&E.
