Episode 2: The Affair

Summary

In a flashback to the previous year, Noah delivers a stern request to Helen, while in Montauk, Alison finds her worst fears have been realised.

Review

What is it you love about The Affair? The seductive escapism in imagining your own extramarital romp in a spectral Atlantic fishing town? Ruth Wilson’s resplendent head of hair? Seeing ER’s Abby Lockhart (Maura Tierney) once again thrust through a lifetime’s emotional upheaval in just one hour? Marvelling at how much Dominic West looks like an older Simon Barlow from Corrie? For me, dear reader, it is a combination of all four.

Last week’s series opener was a vintage offering, in that we spent the hour trembling in anticipation of when Noah might launch a body-blow at a person, tree, or passing car – but there was no sign of Alison, so expect to see her tonight, disquiet of expression, raising his toddler back in Montauk.
