Rihanna filmed scenes of Crane at work in downtown Vancouver, attracting every paparazzi in town and a security detail with umbrellas.

Next week we’ll see what happens when she meets Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) on the episode called Marion Crane.

Production closed the entire block and diverted traffic when Rihanna filmed at the motel and house set in Aldergrove (since demolished).

Showrunner Kerry Ehrin had to wear a security badge to get onto her own set.
