The Affair Spoilers & Speculation Thread #3




Cast

Joshua Jackson as Cole: A hard-edged, Long Island Cowboy and predicted favorite
Ruth Wilson as Allison: Waitress and Cole's Wife
Dominic West as Noah: A school teacher and husband to Helen
Maura Tierney as Helen: Noah's wife and mother of four
Colin Donnell: Cole's brother Scotty
John Doman: Helen's father
Julia Goldani Telles: Whitney, Noah and Helen's 16 year old daughter
Nicolette Robinson


Cole
Cole Lockhart is Alison's husband. He is the prodigal son of a large, boisterous family who has owned a ranch in Montauk for generations. He is equally devastated by the horrible loss he and Alison have suffered, but he finds comfort in his responsibilities at the ranch and the loving support of his family.


Alison
Alison Lockhart is a Montauk native who works as a waitress at a local diner. She is married to Cole, the son of a local landowning family. They are struggling to recover from a tragic loss and their relationship is in repair. The handsome writer from the city provides a tantalizing escape.


Noah
Noah Solloway is a writer and schoolteacher who is happily married to Helen. They live in Brooklyn with their four children and are beholden to Helen's wealthy father, a famous novelist, for their spacious brownstone. Noah's first novel was recently published to mixed reviews. He is vacationing with his family at his in-laws' estate in Montauk for the summer, where Noah hopes to write a more successful follow-up. The appearance of a beautiful young waitress is a tempting distraction and a serious threat to everything he has.


Helen
Helen Solloway is Noah's loving wife and the mother of their four children. A deft manager of their busy lives, she still loves her husband after all these years. While her father is a renowned novelist, that success has come at the expense of his family. Helen has high hopes for Noah's own writing career, but is wary of repeating the mistakes of her parents.


About the Series

At once deeply observed and intriguingly elusive, THE AFFAIR explores the emotional effects of an extramarital relationship. Noah is a New York City schoolteacher and novelist who is happily married, but resents his dependence on his wealthy father-in-law. Alison is a young waitress trying to piece her life and marriage back together in the wake of a tragedy. Set in Montauk at the end of Long Island, the provocative drama unfolds separately from both the male and female perspectives, using the distinct memory biases of both to tell the story.

This might be a silly question, but where did that "predicted favorite" line come from in the show description? Was it in a review? Or is he just a predicted favorite by us?

I think we added the predicted favourite, however, when I type the word favourite I generally use the Canadian spelling and I see that the spelling is the American spelling, and I can't see me typing that, so I'm wondering if I copied it from somewhere. Now I'm curious about that.

The Affair made another list.

Here's an interview with Dominic West. I haven't read it yet, but I noticed The Affair was in the article, so I suspect they will talk about it.

It's a pity the author with a masters degree doesn't know how to spell - Welch miners! Miners who run off without paying.(Oxford English Dictionary)?

Should that have been Welsh miners? i.e miners from Wales!

I know I am being pedantic but really a journalist should know the difference.(Not an ex-President though when talking to Catherine Zita Jones who thought that Wales was a US state)

I think they are so desperate to get the information out first that they don't take the time to edit things like the old days of putting print to paper.

I have to ask, who thought that Wales was a US State?

Who else - Ex president Bush(junior) asked Catherine which State Wales was in or some such comment as he didn't recognise her accent.
