Please don't do this, The Affair writers. Please don't panic because your show hasn't been affair-y enough lately.
It's one of two incredibly tense and intense dinner scenes in this episode, which reveal so much about the characters involved - things that have been repressed for far too long - and leads to maybe one of the series's best installments yet.
WHAT? This show is bonkers.
There wasn't a single second of The Affair Season 2 Episode 7 that was wasted. It was a perfect hour. Or maybe it just feels like it because I feel vindicated in my intense dislike for Noah.
To complete the portrait of Alison as sap vs. Noah as pathological liar, we learned that the new digs were being financed, in part, by the proceeds from the sale of Alison's Montauk house.
It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without some truly awkward dinner conversation, and this week's episode of "The Affair" delivered the discomfort in spades.
The scene where Alison confronts Noah about his book is by far one of the most interesting things in the episode, because it finally give some context to the central storytelling device.
I'm just thankful this episode has so much Cole in it and also that it's directed by Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden, the amazing creative duo who brought us Half Nelson and the upcoming Mississippi Grind.
The show seems to have become what it wants to be and is using its unique framing device in effective ways. It's evolving, challenging expectations, and has developed a captivating energy. Finally.
