Creepy maternal incestual drama underscores the season three of the A&E series “Bates Motel”, debuting Monday, March 9.

“Everything’s changing right now,” says Norman (Freddie Highmore) in the creep promo. “It just feels overwhelming. And like it’s this other part of me.”

“Bates Motel,” returns for a gripping third season with gripping performances by Vera Farmiga (Norma) and Freddie Highmore (Norman). This season focuses on the evolution of the unhealthy dynamic of the Bates family and dives head first into Norman’s waning ability to stay in denial about what’s happening to him and the lengths he will go to gain control of mind.

The dramatic events of last season leaves Norma (Vera Farmiga) fully aware of Norman’s mental fragility and is fearful of what he is capable of. From executive producers Carlton Cuse (“Lost,” “The Returned”) and Kerry Ehrin (“Friday Night Lights,” “Parenthood”) “Bates Motel” serves as a contemporary prequel to the classic horror film “Psycho” and provides viewers with an intimate portrayal of how Norman Bates unravels.

After a creepy escalation of inappropriate closeness with his mother builds, Norman’s fears about what really happened with Blaire Watson resurface and Norma questions what really happened. Forced to look at the truths about Norman for the first time, their deeply intricate relationship continues to evolve.

Norma finds herself turning to the other man in her life, Norman’s half-brother, Dylan (Max Thieriot) and begins to rely on him in ways that she never expected. This relationship sparks jealousy in Norman and a new kind of icky love triangle between Norma and her two sons erupts.

Estranged brother and uncle, Caleb (Kenny Johnson) returns to haunt the family throughout the season challenging the family bond even further. Pressures of the outside world take a hold of the family when newcomers Kevin Rahm (“Mad Men,” “Desperate Housewives”), Tracy Spiradakos (“Revolution”) and Ryan Hurst (“Sons Of Anarchy”) arrive at White Pine Bay.

After a summer of living at the Bates Motel, Sheriff Romero (Nestor Carbonell) and Norma have grown closer but there will always have that troubling question mark surrounding Norman. Something doesn’t feel right, but spite of his instincts, Romero is drawn back to the Bates family, especially Norma. Emma (Olivia Cooke) also determined to find out what is happening to Norman becomes more fearless, goes after the things she wants. Familiar face, Bradley (Nicola Peltz) returns to surprise the family and unearths old memories.
