In 's Psycho II , the first sequel to the original film, Norman is released from the institution twenty-two years after his arrest, seemingly cured.
He meets Mary Samuels Meg Tilly —later revealed to be Mary Loomis, Lila and Sam Loomis's daughter and Marion Crane's niece—and falls in love with her.
However, a series of mysterious murders occurs, as well as strange appearances and messages from his mother, and Norman slowly loses his grip on sanity.
The mysterious appearances and messages turn out to be a plot by Lila to drive him insane again in order to get him recommitted.
The actual murders turn out to be the work of Norman's coworker, Emma Spool Claudia Bryar. Before Norman discovers this, however, Mary Loomis is shot dead by the police during a confrontation with Norman, and Mrs.
Spool murders Lila. When Spool tells Norman that she is his real mother, he kills her and embalms her corpse while assuming the "Mother" personality once again.

He is then arrested and put back in the institution. Psycho IV: The Beginning , the final film in the series, retcons the revelations of the second and third film, supplying that Norman's father was stung to death by bees and removing all references to Emma Spool.
In this film, Norman has been released from an institution, and is married to one of the hospital's psychologists, a woman named Connie Donna Mitchell.
When his wife becomes pregnant , he lures her to his mother's house and tries to kill her, wanting to prevent another of his "cursed" line from being born into the world; the film implies that Mrs.
Bates Olivia Hussey suffered from schizophrenia and borderline personality disorder and passed the illnesses on to her son.
However, he relents at the last minute, when Connie professes her love for him. He then burns the house down in an attempt to free himself of his past.
During the attempt, he is tormented by hallucinations of "Mother" and several of his victims. He almost dies in the flames before willing himself to get out, apparently defeating his illness at long last; he is finally free of his mother's voice, which demands to be let out.
This was Anthony Perkins' final performance as Norman Bates; Henry Thomas portrayed Norman as a teenager.

The TV series Bates Motel , a prequel to the film Psycho , set in the present day, depicts the young Norman Bates' life with his mother, Norma Vera Farmiga.
In this continuity, Norman suffers from hallucinations and blackouts, and begins manifesting his "Mother" personality while Norma is alive. He kills his abusive father, Sam David Cubitt , while in a dissociative state , and Norma moves them from Arizona, where he was born and raised, to White Pine Bay, Oregon, to protect him.
As "Mother", Norman murders Blaire Watson Keegan Connor Tracy , one of his teachers who seduces him;  Bradley Martin Nicola Peltz , a girl he has feelings for;  and Audrey Ellis Decody Karina Logue , Emma's estranged mother.
When Norman's sanity begins to deteriorate, Norma marries the town sheriff, Alex Romero Nestor Carbonell , so she can use his insurance coverage to pay for Norman to be treated in a mental institution.
While the marriage is at first merely a financial arrangement, they eventually fall in love. After Norman is released from the institution and finds out that Norma is married, he grows insanely jealous and tries to kill both Norma and himself by flooding the house with carbon monoxide while his mother sleeps.
Romero arrives at the house in time to revive Norman, but finds that Norma is already dead. Meanwhile, Norman cannot bear losing his mother, so he digs up her corpse and assumes her personality to preserve the illusion of her being alive.
Two years later, Norman is running the motel and living alone in the house with Norma's corpse, which he keeps frozen and preserved in the cellar.
He and his "Mother" personality live together as if there is no one else in the world, and she takes care of his problems - such as killing and disposing of a hitman sent by Romero  and helping him get rid of his uncle, Norma's brother Caleb Kenny Johnson , after he discovers the truth.
When Sam's mistress Marion Crane Rihanna checks into the motel, Norman has dinner with her and tells her that Sam is married.
Marion comes back to the motel after confirming Sam's infidelity, and seeks comfort from Norman. He fears that "Mother" will kill her, however, and tells her to leave and never come back.
When Sam comes to the motel to look for Marion, Norman stabs him to death in the shower. Every day I hear Timothy Foley making creepy sounds from his apartment.
He plays with objects on the wall that adjoins our units, and slide objects around as though on a Ouija board. On one occasion not long ago I passed his door as came to my apartment.
As I passed I could see that the apartment was completely dare, not a light was in the room, because all lights were shut off.

Much like the old Star Trek movies, I've had the unique experience with "Bates Motel" in that I've enjoyed the even-numbered seasons much more than the odd-numbered ones.
That pattern holds true for Season Four, as I very much got back on the wagon for this show during this slate of episodes.
Without giving away any major spoilers, this season really is based on the understanding of Norma Bates Vera Farmiga that her son Norman Freddie Highmore is truly crazy.
At the behest of Dylan Max Theiriot and with the support more than ever before of Sheriff Romero Nestor Carbonell , she finally gets Norman the professional help he needs But how will Norman's mind handle this That is the main theme the entire season focuses on.
Nothing different here, as both contributing chilling and riveting scenes. I am continually struck by how Highmore is literally transforming himself more and more into the "Anthony Perkins Norman" from Hitchcock's "Psycho" , and Farmiga needs to get some sort of award before this show is over too.
So, no multiple episodes with Dylan building a cabin out in the woods, in other words. In seasons two and three, those characters were given things to do that didn't always directly contribute to anything real important.
I know you can't just have Highmore and Farmiga in every scene, but I still was let down when they weren't.
In Season Four, though, the auxiliary characters are more in just supporting roles for those two leads, and I feel that is when this show functions the best.
A final area about Season Four that particularly stuck out was its final couple of episodes. Those could have been the last episodes of the entire series, even though they didn't need to be the show was renewed for a fifth and almost certainly final season.
They were that jarring and emotional. I liked that shakeup, as it shows that the show runners really have a plan in place for what could be a dynamite final campaign in So, though not my all-time favorite season of "Bates Motel" that would still have to be the second season , Season Four is easily in the second spot.
Many iconic moments, and not so much taken taken up by the banality of "finding something for everyone to do".
