‘The Affair’ Promos Suggest No One Is Innocent (EXCLUSIVE)

Creators Sarah Treem and Hagai Levi’s Golden Globe-winning Showtime series “The Affair” broke ground last year as it depicted the separate narratives of Dominic West’s Noah and Ruth Wilson’s Alison: two people groping with their increasingly public affair and the impact it had on their loved ones.

Season two will continue with that deeply emotional topic by finally giving points of view to Joshua Jackson’s Cole and Maura Tierney’s Helen. The leads’ scorned and betrayed spouses are each out for different kinds of closure and are going about getting it in very different ways. But, as these latest promos can attest, they’re not perfect either.

“That discomfort [is what] we need the audience to feel to go, ‘Well, wait a minute, it can’t be this and this,'” Jackson explained in August at the show’s Television Critics Association panel. “It forces you to be in the position of deciding what feels the most right to you. And hopefully over the course of the first season, and now the course of the second season, as you live in these people’s lives, you will change your opinion.”

Plus, there’s the matter of a murder case — which Treem told journalists would be resolved by the end of this season.

Audiences can make their own predictions (and change their minds multiple times) after watching the below promos. “The Affair” returns to Showtime at 10 p.m. on Oct. 4.
