The Affair - Season 3 Review

by iwantmycookies | created - 03 Dec 2016 | updated - 30 Jan 2017 | Public

Season rating - 8-great Highlight episode - 309 MVP - Dominic West

A drop in quality due to a lack of direction and a less interesting premise. The whole Noah side of things did seem a bit forced and rather tedious, specifically in regards to Juliette, however, his backstory with his mum and the climax of episode 9 was the best content of the season. Elsewhere Cole, still my favourite character, didn't get much to do but I still enjoyed his and Alison's relationship. The finale felt rather odd having Juliette be such a big part of it, and although I appreciated the parallels drawn with Noah's mum and her husband I didn't feel her portion of the episode was warranted, let alone for a finale. Having said that, the final scene and Noah with Whitney was great stuff and lends hope for a better (and hopefully final) next season.
