Rihanna Redefines Iconic ‘Psycho’ Shower Scene on ‘Bates Motel’

By Abby Hassler

Even Alfred Hitchcock’s classic Psycho shower scene can’t keep Rihanna from being fierce. In the latest episode of Bates Motel, episode 6 of season 5, Rihanna appears as Marion Crane, who was murdered in the original film.

For this version, the familiar music builds as Rihanna’s Crane takes a shower, in what the audience believes, to be her final moments. Surprisingly, Crane throws back the shower curtain, saying,“Screw this s—-” and leaves the motel.

Executive producers Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin told Variety they worked for a long time to deliver a scene that honored Psycho but had an exciting, contemporary twist. “There was no way to redefine Marion Crane as a modern empowered woman if we killed her in the shower,” Cuse explained.

In an interesting twist of fate, Crane’s less-than-honest boyfriend, Sam Loomis, ends up being the one tragically stabbed by Norman Bates in the shower.
