"Caleb" is the third episode of the second season of Bates Motel. It aired on March 17, 2014.
Dylan tries to bridge the gap between Norma and her brother Caleb. Norma meets an ally in her battle to stop the bypass. Emma's memorial for a friend leads to a new relationship. Norman falls under the influence of a townie girl.
Caleb, the man claiming to be Norma's brother, arrives at the motel looking for her. Dylan invites him inside and when Norma arrives, she's none too pleased to see him and demands that he leave. Later, Caleb tells Dylan he helped protect Norma from their abusive father.
Norma learns that she did not get a part in the musical but Norman was selected to be part of the chorus. She tells him that she is no longer interested in doing the musical but he can help out backstage. She becomes friends with Christine, the former musical director who quit after being forced to cast someone else. She invites Norma to a party, where Norma meets Christine's brother, George. As she is leaving the party, she meets Nick Ford, who is also opposed to the plans for the bypass, and he gives her his card, advising her to get in contact with his secretary to arrange a meeting.
Emma holds a memorial at the beach for Bradley. Norman attends, as does Cody, his new friend from the grocery store and the musical. Norman ends up getting uncomfortable when Cody's male friend tries to come on to him while she is making out with him. Norman reveals to her that he is not gay when she tells him that her friend is. Back home, Dylan defends Caleb to Norma, but she claims he repeatedly raped her years ago. The discussion escalates into a fight, in which Norman arrives to defend her by viciously beating Dylan up. She intervenes by ultimately revealing that Caleb is Dylan's father.
