The Affair "205" Review - AVClub

AVClub:One of the most compelling things The Affair is doing with the expanded perspectives in season two is how it is using them to play with the timeline. Last week, Helen and Noah’s perspectives combined to cover essentially the same time period; here, Alison and Cole pick up right after those events, with everything that happened between Noah and Helen quietly reverberating through their stories as well. The writers are compressing and expanding individual stories as a tool for both advancing the plot and diving deep into specific bits of character exploration, and it’s both a continuation of the work they did in the first season and a smart development of the conceit.

The story is too old to be commented.
