Showtime’s The Affair comes to an end with season five, which chronicles the aftermath of season four, finds the remaining main characters in new places, and tells the story of Alison’s (Ruth Wilson) and Cole’s (Joshua Jackson) daughter, Joanie (Anna Paquin).
Meanwhile, Noah (Dominic West)—whose affair with Alison started it all—finds himself in the awkward situation of having his novel turned into a movie, with his ex-wife, Helen (Maura Tierney) dating the star (Claes Bang). Noah and Helen also are having to keep it together, and not doing very well, through their eldest daughter Whitney’s (Julia Goldani Telles) upcoming wedding.
The revamped main titles (above) reflect on that story, while retaining the show’s theme song: “Container,” written and performed by Fiona Apple.
The Affair airs Sunday nights at 9/8 c on Showtime.
