Critic reviews for 10

Sunday's season finale was invigorating television, and its first five or so minutes marked a series-saving shift in tone.

Who would ever expect a show called The Affair to be largely about grief? Because from Alison's perspective, over 10 weeks, that's what it's been. And Alison's confrontation with Cole just cements that.

I liked this finale a lot, when I wasn't busy being distracted by the differences in POV. But I also don't think it's a coincidence that one of my favorite episodes of the season had so little to do with the central couple as a couple.

For the most part, what I got from the season finale are a lot of thoughts on what's coming next.

Well, the season one finale of The Affair manages to be exactly that. It's a maddening, frustrating, soapy, compelling, occasionally hilarious, entertaining mess, and I somehow equally loved and hated it at the same time.

I do think it got better as it went along, but I'm not sure how much better. And I do know that I'm not uncurious about the 2015 second season premiere date.
