Even though she's not able to say it out loud, Alison is very in touch with her inner torment -- and her need for escape, something to change her life.
It's hard to tell, but I still do enjoy The Affair, just like I still enjoy hanging out with hypothetical Jeff because he has a sweet TV and usually comes through in the end.
This is firmly my favorite episode of the series so far. Memories don't seem as absolute and we're getting a broader scope of the main characters, as well as others in their lives.
There is no denying that The Affair possesses a stellar supporting cast, but until now, they have felt underused.
I just wish I could root for the two married people indulging in a destructive affair. Is that too much to ask for?
