Considering "Bates Motel" is a TV series whose premise is that it's a prequel to "Psycho," it might be a bit surprising that the goal of Season 2 is to have viewers come to love Norma and Norman Bates. But apparently that's exactly what should happen by the time the A&E drama wraps up its second season.

"I think you're really going to fall in love with the characters this season, which kind of was the goal," co-creator Carlton Cuse tells Zap2it at the Season 2 premiere. "Sometimes if you're watching a story that's ostensibly about a serial killer and his mother, you might feel distanced from those characters. Our goal this season was really to make you feel a lot of empathy for them and really understand exactly what makes both of them tick and that they are very complicated creatures. They defy simple labels."

Part of achieving that goal is having Norma Bates get a chance at happiness. She will get a love interest this season, and it's already been revealed in the Season 2 premiere that the Bates Motel is doing pretty well financially -- for now.
