Alison is a young waitress trying to piece her life and marriage back together in the wake of a tragedy. Set in Montauk at more

What Happened to Cole Lockhart?

With Joshua Jackson's exit ahead of The Affair Season 5, it was inevitable that his character would not get a satisfying conclusion.  The Affair Season 5 Episode 4 pulled back the curtain to reveal that Joanie's narrative is taking place sometime after 2050 and that Cole is dead.  Joanie is struggling to exist in a world without her parents, and that's very evident based off the way she's been acting throughout the handful of scenes she's been a part of to date.  ... more

Do All Roads Lead to Montauk?

If you hate Noah, then there's a good chance The Affair Season 5 Episode 3 was right up your alley.  It's almost like we're supposed to feel sorry for him during The Affair Season 5. Are we to care that he's being redeemed?  It sure seems that way! Bringing the two distinctly different versions of events back was the best foot forward. The Affair works best when we're questioning which of the characters at the wheel are telling fibs or just overreacting.  more

Say Goodbye to Montauk

Well, that was more than a little frustrating.  Janelle was one of the better additions to The Affair Season 4, but the decision to relive parts of Vik's funeral on The Affair Season 5 Episode 2 was downright cruel.  I respect that to understand Janelle's machinations we need to follow her on this journey, but all of her scenes would have resonated better if they were part of The Affair Season 5 Episode 1.  Janelle needs to ditch Noah and never look back. ... more

'The Affair': Joshua Jackson Will Not Return as Series Regular for Final Season

Joshua Jackson will not return as a series regular for the fifth and final season of “The Affair,” an individual with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap. However, this may not be the last you see of Cole Lockhart, as Jackson could return in some form for the Showtime series’ farewell year in which, obviously, fans will be saying goodbye to all characters.
