Norman Bates finally went full-on psycho -- or at least we think he did -- and apparently slit the throat of overly flirtatious teacher Miss Watson. Meanwhile, Norma revealed she was molested by her own brother and Sheriff Romero took care of the Abernathy problem in an action-packed finale that broke our hearts (poor Emma!) and made us laugh (Norma and Dylan's shooting lesson) in-between all the shocking twists and tawdry turns. That's the kind of show "Bates Motel" became over its first season and we're ready to book a permanent reservation.
