... another one bites the dust
29 October 2018 | by dierregiSee all my reviews

Sadly everything that made The Affair interesting has vanished by now. In this episode the plot turns catastrophically into a soap opera that takes itself too seriously.

There is no reason for the dual point of view to exist, since the main characters are living different stories, only vaguely interconnected.

Everybody seems angry, aggressive, frustrated and disappointed with life.

The Noah story is going the politically correct way, introducing characters that are fleshing out into stereotypes faster than the speed of light (the rebellious but wise beyond his year, unjustly discriminated student; the stern, beautiful principal, burdened by unfair race-and-gender issues). Are Noah and Janelle having an affair? Technically they're not, so why the title?

The Helen story is turning into a garden-variety hospital drama, compounded by the fact that Helen is (and will always be) such an unlikeable character that I truly do not give a damn whatever happens to her. Vik is just a prop, I guess nobody ever believed that their story could actually happen or any feelings are involved. Are they having affairs? No (or not yet...) So, again... what about the title?
