The decision to do the time warp for the show’s fifth season presumably builds off of the end of its fourth, which revealed that Wilson’s character, Alison, was dead, likely at the hands of boyfriend Ben. (“Likely,” because The Affair has never gone in for strictly objective truth.) Paquin will investigate the circumstances surrounding her parent’s lives, while also, we assume, fending off attacks from Dennis Hopper’s pirate raiders and a newly resurgent Atlantis.

According to the press release, season 5 will chronicle the aftermath of Alison’s death and “find the characters coming to terms with the consequences of their choices” — probably something they should’ve been doing all along. “This final season is about how everything does really fall apart in the end, but somewhere in that wreckage, the seeds of change finally sprout,” reads the network’s official logline for the 10-episode farewell season.

When viewers last saw the pair in the season four finale, Luisa and Cole had split, but he had offered to remain married so that she could become Joanie’s legal guardian and to help her apply for U.S. citizenship.
Granted, last season was awful, and I'm not sure I would've tuned into the new fourth season unless I had to — but good thing I did, because it's a distinct improvement, more emotionally realistic, without sacrificing any lurid wildness. Once again, the best thing about the show is how it depicts the same events as <...> - by AARP Movies for Grownups [Tim Appelo]
They hate one another with a passion, and if they're willing to put all of that behind them, then something must be really wrong with Alison. There's no way she would not show up for Joanie, so I'm worried. His presence in their lives has been sporadic, and it's not like he couldn't hop on a plane to visit them <...> - by TV Fanatic [Paul Dailly]
What’s great about The Affair is—other than tossing us a considerably long “previously on The Affair”—we are left like Helen to stew in her unreasonable juices when she realizes in California therapy how annoyed she is by Noah’s mere presence.

That's not to say that Noah doesn't deserve any sympathy here, but he continues to go around and expect that everything will go his <...> - by Den of Geek [Daniel Kurland]
