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.
We love the central conceit of this show and the way it's being executed... But we wonder if it doesn't need to be loosened up or opened up a bit.
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.
