The Affair Season 4 Episode 4 Review: Ghosts from the Past

Alison is still making all of the same mistakes, and it's becoming increasingly difficult to watch her perspective. On The Affair Season 4 Episode 4 , Alison attended the event we first heard about on The Affair Season 4 Episode 2 , and it put her closer to Ben than ever before. What I liked most about the inclusion of Ben is that he helped Alison make sense of how her mind was working overtime following Gabriel's death.   ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/07/the-affair-season-4-episode-4-review-ghosts-from-the-past/

The Affair Season 4 Episode 3 Review

The opening dialogue from tonight’s episode of The Affair is almost comical in regard to just how successfully it boils down the messy relationships that consume the series: "All right, so let me get this straight… She was married to you and then she cheated with you, but then she left you for you. Then she cheated on you with you. Then she had your baby, but then said it was your baby. Did I get that right?" That alone is a testament to just how overwrought and incestuous The Affair has become over the past three seasons. "That is some real Maury Povich shit," indeed. The romance and relationships have been driven into the ground and wrung so dry that the show is wise to just acknowledge all of this and move ahead into new territory. That by no means fixes the show’s past mistakes, but it does instill some confidence that perhaps what’s to come is going to be worth it. READ MORE...

The Affair Season 4 Episode 2 Review: 402

The promotional materials for The Affair's fourth season pose the question, "What are you holding onto?" In last week's premiere we see that Noah is holding onto his family—and his humanity in the process—while Helen figures out that she's been holding onto Noah, even if it's become a toxic relationship for her. The season's second episode shifts its gaze onto Cole and Alison and attempts to explore that question for these two damaged souls. Cole and Alison have always managed to be more interesting than Noah and Helen, so this episode already feels like a big step up from the premiere simply because of the characters that it examines and the lack of Noah here. It’s interesting to note that Cole is very much addicted to Alison in the same unhealthy way that Helen was for Noah. READ MORE...

The Affair Season 4 Episode 1 Review

In many ways, the The Affair is interested in really digging into the immense field of human memory and how objective events can suddenly become so subjective when they’re filtered through emotion. In the series’ earliest days, this "mandala effect" surrounding memory was integral to the storytelling and episodes often hinged on drastic or miniscule differences presented in the two renditions of events. This device has unfortunately become less crucial as the show has gone on, but it’s still allowed the series its bifurcated structure and The Affair never stopped being interested in how emotion can warp memory. In that sense, it’s very easy to arrive at two different impressions on this episode based on what your history is with this show. This premiere is certainly an improvement over what the last season had to offer, but it still pales in comparison to the show’s first two years. READ MORE...

The Affair Season 4 Episode 3 Review: Who's Dying?

Poor Vic. On The Affair Season 4 Episode 3 , we finally learned the reason why Vic was losing all of his body weight, and it made for a heartbreaking hour. Being a surgeon himself, he was very definite about not following through with any treatment.

The Affair Season 4 Episode 2 Review: Does the Truth Really Set You Free?

These characters are as messed up as ever, and I love every single minute of it. We got up to speed with the latest hurdles Cole, Luisa, and Alison are facing on The Affair Season 4 Episode 2 , and it was just as eye-opening as The Affair Season 4 Episode 1 . I'm going to talk about Luisa first because every single part of her storyline hurt my heart.
