The affair gained popularity due to its unique plot. A married man meets a married woman, and they begin their relationship behind the back of their spouses. This story is similar to the popular movie ‘in the mood for love’ starring Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung. The plot twist is that ‘the affair’ involves a murder case. The series began its journey in 2014 when Noah was on holiday with his family, where he met Alison, who also happens to be married. They fall in love with each other and later get married and have a child. It sounds like a complete love story until the audience realizes that this relationship is very shallow and not worth the sacrifice both the characters made by leaving their family.

In the first season, the married man, Noah, meets the married woman, Alison. The affair begins behind their spouses’ backs. Scotty gets Noah’s daughter pregnant. In season 2, we see Noah and Alison together with their baby when suddenly the police arrive and arrest Noah for Scotty’s murder. Alison promises to get Noah out of it and asks if he trusts her, to which Noah doesn’t respond. Season 3 is the messiest of all. While Alison is busy caring for her daughter, Noah’s former wife helps him escape prison.
