The Affair is at its best when it's letting its characters breathe in the moment, dig into the truths hiding behind the lies of their relationships... This week was not The Affair at its best.

Four episodes into season two and The Affair has taken all that was interesting, captivating, and dare I say fun about season one and let it ssssssink back into the ocean.

I give Tierney kudos for allowing herself to be portrayed in a vulnerable, embarrassing and messy way. It was a great performance, and one that I haven't come to expect form an actor of her stature.

On The Affair Season 2 Episode 4, we got a lot of insight into Helen, and it really was needed. To date, she's pretty much played second fiddle to Noah and Alison, and it's interesting that the show has been focusing on her a lot more this time round.

While Helen is off getting drunk and high and Noah is too busy running away from his responsibilities, both fail to notice their complete and utter neglect of Martin, Trevor and Stacey.

It was a long, bad day for both Helen and Noah on Sunday night's episode of The Affair, one that began with them on opposite sides of a courtroom and ended with Helen in jail and Noah checked into a motel with three of his children.
