Season 5 Episode 9 ‘The Affair’ Review

April Whisenhant and Alison Dean are still in shock over this crazy episode. The Vanity Fair article about Noah is finally published and he finds out that six women have come out with allegations against him. This, of course, greatly implacts Helen and the kids, but what impacts Helen more is when she finds out that Sasha is behind the allegations and article ever coming out. Whitney has another encounter with Furkat where he tells her that everything she thinks happened never happens, reconciles with Colin (we finally see his art!) and has a conversation with Helen and Noah about that night in the hot tub. All of this and more! Follow our hosts: @aprilwhisenhant @thealisondean

The Affair After Show:

Join our hosts on THE AFFAIR AFTER SHOW as they explore the emotional and psychological effects of two affairs on the Showtime series. Each week we recap, review and analyze in-depth as Noah and Alison impact the people in their lives – from husband to wife to all the way down to the kids. Plus we’ll have inside scoops from cast and crew.


The Affair explores the emotional and psychological effects of an extramarital affair. The drama will be told separately from the male and female perspectives using the distinct memory biases to both misdirect and intrigue. “The Affair” explores the emotional/psychological effects of two affairs. Young diner waitress Alison and her husband, rancher Cole, are struggling — personally and financially — in the wake of tragedy. Noah, a settled teacher and would-be novelist, is summering at his in-laws’ Hamptons estate with his wife, Helen, and four kids. When Noah meets Alison, they begin an affair. For her, he’s a welcome escape; for him, she’s a pretty distraction. But, the tryst eventually ends two marriages — one that was already a bit shaky, the other that was on solid ground.
