Spoiler alert! This article contains “Bates Motel” spoilers. Read on if you would like to know what happens next before the new episode airs.

In the next episode, titled “There’s No Place Like Home,” Norman will find out that his mother, Norma (Vera Farmiga) and Romero, the White Bay sheriff (Nestor Carbonell) are already married. The couple tied the knot while he was confined at the Pineview Institute.

In the promo video, Norman called their house to check on his mother but was surprised when Romero picked up the phone. His recent discovery prompted him to get out of the facility and come back home. The clip also showed him getting details on how to get out of the facility.

However, Dr. Edwards (Damon Gupton) believes that Norman should remain at the institute. While Norman attempts to come back home, Norma went to the institute to convince his son to extend his confinement. Norman responded whether it was Norma or Romero’s idea to keep him there longer.

Previously, the great bond between Norman and Norma was finally established through the therapy sessions with Dr. Edwards. It was revealed that the two have a very special relationship and are each other’s emotional partners. However, the two find it diffciult to deal and create relationships with others because of how close they are to each other. Most likely, Norma and Romero’s marriage will have consequences, especially when they kept it a secret from Norman.

In the meantime, Freddie Highmore reportedly confirmed that “Bates Motel” will proceed to Season 5, which may be the best yet in the series.

Highmore talked to HeyUGuys and said that they are currently moving towards the endpoint that the writers have prepared.

“Which is incredibly exciting and there's no holding back now. I always sort of say that every season is the best but it really is the case on this one,” Highmore said.

“Bates Motel” Season 4 Episode 7 will air on April 25 on A&E in the US and on Fox in Australia. More updates and details are expected soon.
