A depressed Bradley attempts suicide. Four months later, Bates Motel has become a hot spot for vacationers, but Norma is worried about Norman, who spends his time practicing taxidermy and obsessing over Miss Watson. The success of the motel is in jeopardy when construction of the new bypass begins. Dylan learns that Bradley's father was cheating with Miss Watson, and Gil, her boyfriend, likely killed him when he discovered their affair. Dylan tells this to Bradley, who then murders Gil and sneaks into Norman's house, asking for his help.
