Previously on The Affair...
Mr. Solloway, thanks for coming in.
Not like I had much of a choice.
So I read your book.
Everyone has one book in them.
Almost nobody has two.
Welcome to the end of the world.
Do you remember the first time you saw her?
Like it was yesterday.
do you remember seeing him for the first time?
Turn her over.
- Oh, my God. - Hit her hard!
I remember he was holding his daughter.
You saved her life.
I'm Noah, by the way.
Helen and I are trying to raise decent human beings.
Not just get more, spend more.
As you accept our money for private school tuition...
Mom, stop trying to pick a fight with my husband.
This is Harry, my agent.
So Bruce tells me that
you're working on something new this summer?
Uh, well, I haven't really gotten too far with it.
打扰一下 先生 你点的威士忌
Excuse me, sir, you ordered a whiskey.
Is she flirting with you?
You wanna get out of here?
There's this hypothesis in theoretical physics.
Your true life continues as is, unchanged,
but at the moment of decision,
a new life splits off
into a parallel universe.
How is any of this relevant to what happened?
Trying to figure out if anyone might have had a motive
to kill this fella.
I thought it was an accident.
I didn't know you invited Max.
Helen the felon.
- Hello. - Come here.
I want it in stores by next fall.
I don't want this life.
I have to leave.
I'm in love with someone else.
I'm looking for Mr. Solloway.Is he home?
You're under arrest.
I'll get you out of this, I promise.
Do you believe me?
What the fuck?
I thought you said that you were considering it.
I thought long and hard about it.
I don't know, it just didn't feel right to me anymore.
And so you wanna go with this ending instead?
I think it's really powerful.
Well, what can I tell you?
I don't agree.
Oh, come on, Harry.
It's much subtler.
It's two people sitting down to dinner.
Yeah, with an unimaginable secret between them.
Doesn't have the punch of your first idea.
Murder, it's... it's...
It's... it's cheap. It...
Well, it doesn't have to be.
Have you read Of Mice and Men?
Is that a rhetorical question?
Well, you may want to review it.
The murder at the end of that book felt surprising
while it was happening
and completely inevitable in retrospect.
Like all great endings in literature.
So what are you saying,
you won't publish it if I don't change the ending?
I'm not saying that.
'Cause, you know, as generous as that advance you got me was,
I still only got a fifth of it.
That's because that's how advances work.
You'll get the next part when you submit the final draft.
This is the final draft.
Maybe you should take another pass at the end.
No, just one more pass.
Okay, maybe I should be more articulate
about what I did appreciate in this draft.
I thought bringing the feud
to the foreground of the earlier chapters
There's something almost epic in the way
that you now depict that family, those four brothers...
It's got a real East of Eden feel to me.
What is it with you and Steinbeck today?
And I love the way that you introduced Lana.
And I gotta ask, how much of this is
based on what happened between you and, um,
what's her actual name?
It's fiction, Harry.
All right. All right.
I know this is frustrating for you,
but you're in the final stretch, buddy.
Don't go soft on me, okay?
You have something very powerful to say.
I just want you to say it.
- Noah! - Hey, Jordy.
- How's it going? - Man, it's been forever.
Where you been?
Uh, I... I've been upstate,
in a little... just a writer's retreat.
Working on something new or...
- That's right, yeah. - I can't wait to read it.
You know, I feel terrible
we haven't seen more of you guys this summer.
We've been meaning to have you over.
It's just with the end of the school year,
you know how it is.
Everything's so out of control.
And Becca's mother is staying with us right now,
which makes me wanna...
What are you doing tonight?
Um, I... Oh, I...
不行 操 今晚不行
No, fuck, I can't tonight.
- Daddy. - Duck.
