Last month, Bates Motel star Austin Nichols tweeted out a trailer for the show's fifth and final season. The trailer contained a steamy love scene between his character Sam Loomis and Marion Crane, familiar to Psycho fans as the woman killed in the infamous shower scene. Normally, this wouldn't be that big of a deal. However, Marion Crane, in this imagining, is played by none other than Rihanna.
As you might imagine, the trailer got a ton of media attention (guilty!), and a nation has been waiting with baited breath for the scene in question to air. And on Monday night, it finally hit the small screen. You can check it out for yourself here:
The scene wasn't quite as steamy as we all thought it might be. But don't tell that to Rihanna. She jumped on Instagram Live on Monday night to communicate with her fans as the show aired. And when the sex scene came on, she couldn't bear to watch. She literally cringed while it was on her TV screen and looked like she couldn't wait for it to be over. You can check out her priceless reaction in the video above.
