Ataylor...don't bother watching this season. Allison and Cole were almost non-existent most of this season, Noah was a crazy person and Helen was shown as a needy stalker person. The finale' was so boring that I almost fell asleep.

We had to downsize out cable to save some & and no longer have showtime. I've never missed an episode of the affair so I need to know if there is anywhere I can go online to watch it for free? Thanks

Jeff, I agree! It seems like they made this season the "Noah and Helen" show. They made Noah look crazy and Helen look desperate. Not good writing! I was really surprised when it was picked up for another year after watching this season.

Fabulous acting its like watching an excellent Broadway drama...but disappointed that writers made Noah into some kind of psychotic-- he was a brilliant thinker and writer, there had to be a better story line, such as Noah realizing his old ways and changing to become a good person to Helen and their children and just concentrating on his writing a new novel.

Is it just me or is this season REALLY slow?

Is there enough objectifying women in the popular culture? This is just another example of older men gazing fondly at (wait, no, actively seeking out) younger women to support their middle-age crisis. Does Showtime really need to capitalize on a misogynistic plot line that's been celebrated by male cultures by at least 2000 years? Profit!

Terrific show. Glad to see that it is renewed for a second season.
