Sunday TV: Season End of ‘The Affair’

the-affair-saison-4“The Affair” (Showtime, 9 p.m.) has been especially good this season, getting back to its roots about infidelities and consequences, which by now has spread to beyond its four central characters. Recent episodes have involved a cross-country road trip and the shocking death of a main character. In the fourth season finale, Anton and Noah finally reach Princeton, Cole faces his wife and Helen completes her road to becoming a sage. Next year’s season of “The Affair” will be its last.
