Since the second season of "The Affair" had just concluded, fans are curious as to how the third season of the series will turn out.
"The Affair" season 2 showed some pivotal scenes that proved to be important pieces of the series. The previous episodes of the season showed what took place when Scotty Lockhart, played by Colin Donnell, died. It revealed that Noah Solloway, played by Dominic West, is not the sole reason that Scotty died.
Apparently, there was an accident that took place involving Scotty, Noah, Alison Lockhart, played by Ruth Wilson, and Helen Solloway, played by Maura Tierney. It was not just Noah who was responsible for Scotty's death. Noah and Helen accidentally killed Scotty when they were driving home from the bar.
With that, fans are wondering just how Noah will fare in the episodes to come. It was speculated that the series will continue to build on Noah and Helen's relationship. This will show Helen's guilt regarding the accident and how it caused Noah to be persecuted for her mistake.
One of the show's stars Joshue Jackson, who portrays Cole Lockhart, recently shared his insight about the series. According to HNGN, he stated, "The discomfort is trying to combine these two stories and figure out where the truth is. That's the essential mission of the show. That discomfort we need the audience to feel to go, 'Well, wait a minute, it can't be this and this?' It forces you to be in the position of deciding what feels the most right to you."
Along with the heavy theme of the upcoming season, he explained that the episodes to come will also feature some lighter scenes despite the tragic storyline. According to the show's executive producer Sarah Treem, the third season will present a different tone compared to the other seasons.
As reported by Elle Magazine, she stated, "I think the second season is going to be darker in tone, and tighter. And the third season changes again. I will be sad if we don't get a third because I don't think it quite pays off until the third season."
Meanwhile, there has yet to be any confirmed release date for the upcoming season.
