Season 03, Episode 03
Juliette, running from secrets she left in Paris, looks for adventure and romance in America. Noah is an alluring prospect but a terrifying event blasts her hopes of a carefree affair. Meanwhile, Noah must fight like never before and try to make sense of what just occurred.
At once deeply observed and intriguingly elusive, The Affair explores the emotional effects of an extramarital relationship. Noah is a New York City schoolteacher and novelist who is happily married, but resents his dependence on his wealthy father-in-law. Alison is a young waitress trying to piece her life and marriage back together in the wake of a tragedy. Set in Montauk at the end of Long Island, the provocative drama unfolds separately from both the male and female perspectives, using the distinct memory biases of both to tell the story.
