SHOOT: Olivia Cooke & Max Thieriot Film BATES MOTEL on Steveston Pier for 2×07
Update: Emma (Olivia Cooke) came to find Dylan (Max Thieriot) to tell him that Norman (Freddie Highmore) was in police custody after the death of Cody’s father in 2×07 Presumed Innocent.
How can you tell it’s Bates Motel and not Once Upon a Time filming in Steveston? For one thing, Emma’s signature VW bug is orange not yellow in the A&E hit series. Bates Motel lit up the fishing boats at the Steveston docks to film scenes of Norman Bates’s cystic fybrosis-stricken friend Emma Decody (Olivia Cooke) getting out of her VW bug and walking down the pier to meet Norman’s half-brother Dylan Massett (Max Thieriot) at a food truck, pulling her oxygen tank behind her. Dylan looks a little beat up.
