Also Sunday: Final Season of ‘The Affair’

the-affair-final-season-5While it at first seemed “The Affair” (Showtime, 9 p.m.) was lasting a lot longer than its original intent, the new and final season seems welcome indeed. Creator Sarah Treem has created what would seem a full circle to the series in that Dominic West’s Noah Solloway wants to reunite with is wife Helen (Maura Tierney) after both of their love interests have died. And in the future, Anna Paquin joins the cast as the now-grown daughter of the departed Alison, Joanie, who returns to Montauk to find out the truth of her mother’s death. I’m on board.
