Literally so much happens on this show you don’t know what’s going to happen next. Probably one of the most unpredictable shows to air, which is surprising considering the title but it’s what happens after the affair that’s unpredictable. And a lot happens. Season three takes an even darker turn when Noah spends 3 years in prison and breaks his shoulder. This leads him on to taking tablets, addictive tablets. He then begins to have hallucinations which become dangerous later on in the season.

In the first two seasons I really liked Helen, she was my favourite character but I really started to despise her in this season. She went a little crazy and obsessive, I don’t like how much she seemed to care about Noah. He cheated on her, wrecked their family and is really horrible to her, yet she still let him back in. It really frustrated me, I want her to move on.


As for Alison, she’s just as annoying and selfish as ever. I don’t even think I like a single character anymore. The oldest daughter, Whitney is probably my favourite, she’s the least annoying. The show is really entertaining so I don’t really need to like the characters, I enjoy the drama.

I’m excited to see where this show goes in the fourth season, there’s always dramatic changes which makes it very exciting. I’m sure the fourth season will have many surprises and shocks in store for us. Overall, season three was a great season, very dramatic and shocking.
