Is Norma dead? That’s the question facing Bates Motel fans as we head into the show’s season 4 finale. And all we can really say is: You’re about to find out.

“We’ve been very secretive about episode 10 because after the events of 9, you’re shocked, you’re reeling,” executive producer Carlton Cuse says. “You’re wondering: What’s going on? What happened here? What did I just see? What does this mean? And then episode 10 really answers those questions.”

The one thing Cuse will promise about the hour is that it will leave fans wanting more.”It’s a really shocking and emotionally profound episode of the show that is going to make you hopefully [hate] that you’re going to have to wait seven or eight months to see season 5,” he says. “You’ll be crying and you’ll be cursing us that you’re going to have to wait for a long time to find out what’s next.”
