In advance of the show’s premiere next Sunday, Showtime has made the first episode of the new drama The Affair available to watch. 

The show, which stars Dominic West, Ruth Wilson, Maura Tierney, and Joshua Jackson, concerns—what else?—an affair; but that only scratches the surface. In the pilot, one can see how creators Hagai Levi and Sarah Treem use a superstructure that ads an air of mystery to their conceit and shifting perspectives to reveal how two people can see events in completely different ways.

Watch below on YouTube or a variety of other platforms including Showtime On Demand and Showtime Anytime.
