The show's season 1 explores the emotional and psychological effects of an affair that destroys two marriages, and the crime that brings these individuals back together. The extra-marital affair takes place between Noah Solloway and Alison Lockhartwhen they meet in the resort town of Montauk in Long Island. Noah, a New York City schoolteacher and Williams College alum who is struggling to write a second book is happily married with four children, but he resents his dependence on his wealthy father-in-law.

Noah's former wife Helen on the other hand is attempting to piece her life together while navigating the divorce proceedings, care for her children, and her parents’ noxious influence while Cole struggles to overcome his past heartbreak and start a promising new life.
