Everything you think you knew was true on The Affair? Every theory you've come up with? Forget about it. Of course, that's just the nature of the show, with its four point of views and four storytellers. Details, big and small, change. Memories are adjusted. Secrets are kept...even from the audience. And in tonight's episode, one of the Showtime drama's biggest mysteries was finally answered as the father of Alison's (Ruth Wilson) baby was finally revealed. No, it wasn't her current husband Noah (Dominic West) Or her ex-husband Cole (Joshua Jackson). It was Scotty Lockhart (Colin Donnell), Cole's troublemaker brother whose murder is the show's central mystery. But wait, »
In 2013 "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" and star Andy Samberg won Golden Globes for the first season of this Fox laffer but both were shockingly snubbed the following year. With that in mind, will last year's big winner on the drama side -- "The Affair" and headliner Ruth Wilson -- follow this same unfortunate trajectory with the members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for its second season? -Break- 'Outlander' heartthrob Sam Heughan skyrockets in Golden Globes predictions As Gold Derby contributor Riley Chow notes in our TV forum, the rise and fall of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" at the Globes is hardly an oddity. Other examples include: "Felicity" winning Drama Actress (Keri Russell) and being nominated for Drama Series in 1998, then being shut out for its remaining four years; "Deadwood" winning Drama Actor (Ian McShane) and getting a Drama Series nomination in 2004, then being ignored...' »

1. Scream Queens - Monday, 10pm on E4
It's Halloween week, so what better way to mark the occasion by watching a bunch of horror movie clichés screaming their lungs out and being as catty as an Apprentice contestant?
Jamie Lee Curtis stars in this hilariously camp horror anthology series which also contains a who's-who of young stars from Emma Roberts to Lea Michele to Nick Jonas. Even Ariana Grande isn't safe in this Mean Girls vs Midsomer Murders madness.
The new two-part "Luther" special isn't slated to air for a little while yet, but today Empire has spoken with show creator and producer Neil Cross to talk about the new episodes and the return of Idris Elba to one of his most iconic characters.
The third series ended on some fairly major events, and Cross says that what we last saw was the end of 'Chapter One' while this fourth series will be the beginning of 'Chapter Two' and sees the inclusion of Rose Leslie to the cast as Luther goes on the hunt for a cannibal killer. Cross indicates that he thought the third series was the end for the character:
"I honestly thought we were done - and I thought being done would be like finishing a novel, that accidentally catching an episode on repeat would be like looking at a photograph of friends I used to »

The Affair tells the story of, well, an affair, now from the four perspectives of the people involved. There's Noah (Dominic West) and Alison (Ruth Wilson), the adulterers and their soon-to-be former spouses Helen (Maura Tierney) and Cole (Joshua Jackson). Last season told the story from just Noah and Alison's point of views, season two added Cole and Alison. The actors have a lot of experience dealing with versions of the truth through various points of view, so we had to ask: Whose real-life point of view would they like to see? "Oh wow, that's a good question," Wilson told us. "Vivienne Westwood, I quite like her. She's quite a legend. Do you know who she is? She's got quite an »
The Affair is full of moving parts, shifting views and sometimes drastically different versions of your favorite characters. But one thing remains the same: Maura Tierney's Helen is basically the best. "Yeah, Helen's probably the best character on the show," Ruth Wilson told E! News when asked if there was another character on the show she'd like to play. She also cited Oscar and Scotty as interesting characters. "I think all the baddies...but probably Maura's. It's a strong female role, it's interesting." Ask any fan of The Affair and nine times out of 10 they'll respond that Helen is their favorite character, but that prospect isn't really daunting for Tierney, who »
Ruth Wilson isn’t entirely sure what she thinks about marriage, especially after being involved in a broken one on TV. The Affair star, who won a Golden Globe for her role as grief-stricken Alison Bailey in the Showtime drama, wonders whether the cultural construct has become antiquated. “We’re upholding these institutions, and I’m not sure that they work anymore,” she tells The Hollywood Reporter. “The Ashley Madison website that got hacked — 37 million people were signed on to an infidelity site," she continues. "It kind of suggests that infidelity happens an awful lot. We treat it

The Affair introduced some new things this season: full-frontal male nudity, new characters, and oh yeah, two new point of views. We're now seeing Noah's side of the story, Alison's story, Cole's perspective and Helen's version of what's happening. So which is the truth? "I don't know. I used to think mine was more truthful 'cause everyone does, they're written more three-dimensionally, your own version, so they always feel more truthful. But I don't know," Ruth Wilson told E! News News at The Affair's PaleyFest New York panel. "You keep sort of playing other versions or your version becomes ridiculous… I don't know, I think mine is, for my character, is the »
In this season of Showtime's The Affair, the story is told from four perspectives — two more than in last season, meaning we're getting deeper inside the mind of Cole (Joshua Jackson) than ever before. "The best way to approach the show is with the idea that none of the characters are lying to you," Jackson said Monday, before the show's PaleyFest panel. "They may be lying to themselves — but everybody thinks that the story they're telling is the truth, even though we all have a tendency, to varying degrees, to remember ourselves either slightly better or slightly worse than we were."The Affair's most recent episode saw Cole's character pay a visit to his estranged wife, Alison (Ruth Wilson), from both Alison's and Cole's perspectives. In hers, he was verging on threatening; in his, he was seeking closure. Which one was closer to the truth? "From the internal perspective »
