Agree with all of the above comments- shitty season!

The finale was lame. I thought it was strange that the writers would devote half an episode of the season finale to Juliette, a minor, undeveloped character. How ridiculous is it that Noah bumps into his daughter in Paris and rescues her from the awful,Furkat? Though I was happy that Noah and his daughter reconnected, I don't feel that this redeems Noah;he's still a selfish, terrible person.

Lol, he happened to stumble upon his daughter in that small town of Paris! Great point, my overall hatred of that episode had me overlook that stupidity.

I actually liked some of this season. I liked crazy Noah. He's such a dick that watching him go crazy was fun. I hate how the finale essentially swept it under the rug....he's normal now and saving his daughter and that stupid fucking eye contact with Helen from outside as she's at the Christmas tree in the window was super lame. I liked the Alison/Cole storyline but it was not showcased enough.

The Affair has been over. They're stretching out a story that's been told already. Some things worked this season, a lot didn't.

The most important thing that happened was Helen's confession and it wasn't even addressed in the finale. :banghead: It felt like we missed some episodes in between...how could Noah be on the floor in a mess after realizing he knifed himself and suddenly healthy and sane and in Paris? Not to mention Alison/cole and the fact that they slept together...too many loose ends this season, it was a disjointed mess. They just glossed over it all and showed Helen and Vic with the kids by the Christmas tree enjoying a cozy holiday like nothing ever happened. And are Helen's parents still locked in the panic room?

I thought the first episode of the new season was pretty bad.

There's a new season? It's bad but I would watch it. It's another show I love to hate. I don't like any of the characters :lol:

I watched episode 2 last night. Part One was Cole's perspective and it was pretty good. The actress who plays Luisa, (Catalina Sandino Moreno) was phenomenal. Part Two was Alison's perspective and was a letdown.

i think the show is so much easier to watch when it's cole and alison-focused. i just find noah and helen SO irritating and impossible to sympathize with.

i thought ben/alison's new love interest was straight out of the too good to be true category. but he sure is cute

I agree ...well except for the guy being cute.

Watching the preview for next week was disappointing seeing that we are back to Helen.

I was very surprised too.

Yep, best ep of the season. I really liked the chemistry of Cole, Noah and Anton. Some funny parts that made me laugh, don't think this show has ever made me laugh before. Also, first time I've liked Noah, surprised by him as well.

There is going to be a 5th season! I wonder if Cole is fated to follow his father's footsteps.

With regard to episode 8 - there are already conspiracy theories on Twitter that Luisa is somehow responsible for the tragic turn of events. :lol:



If you have not seen episode 8 STOP READING.

SPOILER ALERT


Here is a Hollywood Reporter article that came out after the last episode:

for me, allison was the best part of the show (along with her relationship with cole). sad she's gone.

if the next/final season is only about cole proving ben is a murderer it'll get dumb, quick

Heavy season finale. There seems like a disconnect between episodes 1-7 and episodes 8-10 in that the last three episodes were worth watching. :lol: Seriously though, episodes 8-10 were great.

I'm still not clear on how accurate the details are with regard to Alison's demise. It just seems odd that Ben is such a monster. I guess it's plausible that he can become aggressive and violent when he drinks, but the whole 2nd part of episode 9 didn't fit AT ALL with the info about Ben the audience had been given in previous episodes. That info wasn't just through Alison's perspective, but also Cole's. Then out of nowhere - BAM! Ben is an off the charts asshole as he walks in to Alison's apartment. And that's BEFORE he starts drinking.

I agree. Maybe they will start the next season 5-10 years later and we will see how the characters progressed/regressed. I have a feeling Noah and Helen will get back together.

I didn't even realize that last week was the finale. I tried to watch it tonight. :conf:

I agree....I hope next season isn't just proving that it was a murder but it will be for sure.
