The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz ~ Bates Motel Season 3 - Hello, Norman...

Honey Buzz ~ Bates Motel Season 3 - Hello, Norman...

Ohhh my. Bates Motel is really coming into its own as we lead up to the Season 3 premiere.
Entertainment Weekly has released a new set of photos that show our young star is perhaps developing a little darkly.

I adore these promo shots, and while there's something so special and relaxed about Anthony Perkins' Norman in the original stills, Highmore is really growing into the character, and I mean that in the most literal sense.

Highmore seems a little stiff and composed when seen alongside Perkins' ease with the character, but that might be a function of Highmore's age... and also the fact that Norman hasn't really become the final manifestation of himself, but it's growing, and he's changing.

I ADORE this photo. Perkin's comfort with Norman and his psychosis is palpable. 

Highmore is missing Perkins' intensity here, but there's a shadow growing.

A GREAT shot. Very evocative.

Bates Motel returns on March 9th to A&E
