Tv Season Info

Season four finds Noah (West), Helen (Tierney), Alison (Wilson) and Cole (Jackson) in their own orbits, alienated from each other, spinning further and further away from where they all began. Every character is involved in a new relationship, forcing them each to decide if they're ready and willing to leave the past behind for good -- with a season about new beginnings, tragic ends and the ever-elusive possibility of forgiveness.

Critic Reviews for The Affair: Season 4

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (8)

There was something satisfying about this finale's extreme focus on the characters and their real, true, honest emotions.

This season, the show appears to be back on the divergent subjectivities theme, which is where it belongs, where it is best.

The Affair is back, still with the same, mournful opening song by Fiona Apple, misty shots of Montauk and now sunny Los Angeles. It has a little more depth this time around, even if we still love it because it's guilty as sin.

No one can argue with the talent, but good acting can't make a good storyline.

August 20, 2018 | Full Review…

The entire series finally crystallized for me, in a way it just hadn't before.

The Affair is solely about people who are incapable of moving on and as a spectator, that can be a frustrating experience to watch. [Full Review in Spanish]
