Michael O’Neill talks ‘Bates Motel’ season 2, finding Ms Watson’s killer,

The hit show Bates Motel is still strong in their second season and star Michael O’Neill discusses what lies ahead for his character Nick and how that ties to the Bates family.

Michael ONeill Bates Motel season 2Zap2it spoke with O’Neill about his character and the role Nick has to play in Bates Motel Season 2.

“One of the things that they established pretty quickly with Nick is he’s driven by the loss of his daughter. He really wants closure on that, he wants to find out who did it. Obviously there was some unfinished or unresolved issues between the two of them. I think he wishes that he could have been a lot closer to Blair, but for whatever reason, whatever issues existed between them — which the writers know — there was a terrible interruption there…More than anything, I think he really wants closure on that.”

Norma Bates (Vera Farmiga) seemed to reach out to Nick for help and fans may be wondering how that will play out.

“I do think that she sees him as a potential ally. This whole thing about this bypass is threatening her livelihood, threatening the hotel, has really come into play. I admire her gumption. I love the fact that she took on the city council in particular, one of my nemesis that she went off on. That was the beginning of our connection.

“Now, both characters are manipulative enough, I’m sure they both have interested motives in this little dance that will be coming henceforth. But in terms of Blair and the Bates, that remains to be seen. I don’t have a thread there at this point.”
