    I just read this, and it left me utterly confused. Considering it's based on the novel, I assumed the story arc had a beginning, middle and ending. How can there be a Season 2?

    Well that aspect is a huge part of a lot of S01E01 discussion, and that, IMO, is one of the many reasons the TV series is sucking big-time. They're not following the premise of the book much at all. About the only good thing from that is we'll get a different ending. Whether it's better or not will certainly be up for discussion... if we get a real ending at all. :)

    Never read the book, but I assume the way they get a second (and maybe third) season is padding with lots of back story flashbacks for the various characters, ala Lost.

    The real sucker punch, for me, was the lack of an ending for Colorado Kid.

    Fortunately Haven hasn't been very much like the book at all.

    Does Bates Motel plan on having zombies?

    His character was killed in Bates Motel.
