Watch Season 2 Premiere of 'The Affair' Now for Free

Get ready to binge watch a new series -- the season 2 premiere of The Affair is airing this Sunday on Showtime, but you can watch the entire episode on Yahoo. The show revolves around -- you guessed -- an affair, but it's not as seedy as it sounds.


Season 1 introduced us to Noah (Dominic West) and Alison (Ruth Wilson), as they fell in love, despite being married to other people. It looks like they are still together this season, but the fallout from their infidelity is immense. 

This season will add in their jilted spouses' perspectives, as they all try to pick up the pieces of their lives. One of the more intriguing aspects of this show is how it tells the story from the different characters' perspectives, showing how we all see the world differently -- in both big and small ways.

It's going to be interesting to see how Noah's wife Helen (Maura Tierney) and Alison's husband Cole (Joshua Jackson) really think about what happened in their marriages and the affair.

The show is skyrocketing in popularity, thanks in part to winning the 2015 Golden Globe for best TV drama. And don't worry, guys, if this sounds too much like a Lifetime movie for you -- there's also a criminal investigation subplot going on.

If for no other reason, watch it so you can go give your spouse a big hug. This show is like a giant advertisement for the destruction an extramarital affair can cause.

Go watch the first episode of season 2 for free -- but be warned, it may having you signing up for Showtime On Demand ASAP to catch all of season 1.
