Af­fairs of the heart

Five lovers, five points of view and no morals – wel­come back to The Af­fair.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - DRAMA -

Af­ter two sea­sons of lay­ered lies and shift­ing points of view in drama The Af­fair (2014- cur­rent), adul­ter­ous au­thor Noah Sol­loway (Dominic West) stood up in court and con­fessed to mur­der­ing Scott Lock­hart (Colin Don­nell) at the end of sea­son 2 (in De­cem­ber 2015). But as the fi­nale flash­back re­vealed, the real cul­prits who com­mit­ted the show’s cen­tral hit-and-run mys­tery mur­der were the two women in Noah’s life – his lover Ali­son Lock­hart (Ruth Wil­son) who shoved Scott into the road while he was try­ing to rape her, and Noah’s drunk ex-wife He­len (Maura Tier­ney) who was driv­ing the car that struck and killed Scott.

Now as sea­son 3 picks up three years later, fans will be see­ing new events un­fold through five sets of eyes. “We’re al­ways ask­ing our­selves, ‘What is love? Is love a prod­uct of time and place and cir­cum­stance? Or is love some­thing true that can’t be un­done?’ We tried to an­swer those now,” says show cre­ator Sarah Treem.

NOAH sev­ered ties with Ali­son and He­len while he was in prison, moves in with his sis­ter Nina (Jen­nifer Es­pos­ito) and starts work­ing as a cre­ative writ­ing pro­fes­sor. JULIETTE LE GALL (Irène Ja­cob) is a French pro­fes­sor spe­cial­is­ing in Me­dieval love who’s tan­gled in an af­fair with Noah. But she’s got se­crets. HE­LEN and Noah’s dread­ful kids Whit­ney (Ju­lia Goldani Telles), Martin (Jake Si­cil­iano), Trevor (Jadon Sand) and Stacey (Leya Catlett) think that Noah is an evil killer but while He­len’s still dat­ing Dr Vic Ul­lah (Omar Met­wally), she’s ob­sessed with get­ting back to­gether Noah. ALI­SON ad­mit­ted to Noah in the sea­son 2 fi­nale that baby Joanie wasn’t his. Her ex-hubby Cole (Joshua Jack­son) and his wife Luisa (Catalina Sandino Moreno) have cus­tody of Joanie (Rea­gan and Sa­van­nah Grella) af­ter Ali­son van­ished for six months. COLE be­lieves that Joanie has the right to know her mother, so he’ll be risk­ing his happy mar­riage to ar­range vis­its be­hind Luisa’s back, be­cause Luisa thinks that Ali­son is a flaky and dam­aged lu­natic.

Love and lust are tak­ing cen­tre stage in The Af­fair.
