So, who's dead on 'The Affair'? Fiona Apple helps us figure it out

The Affair has been labeled the Rashomon of marriage dramas, thanks to its he said/she said structure—but it’s also a pretty compelling mystery. The two main characters, Noah (Dominic West) and Alison (Ruth Wilson), are telling the story of their affair to a detective who appears to be investigating a murder. So far, all we know is this: Someone died. And that someone is a man, probably a local, though he was run down on a road that’s primarily used by tourists. And he died the night of a party. And Alison misses him now that he’s gone. A few (very small) clues!

So, who exactly is doomed? Well, listen to “Container,” the beautiful, unsettling theme song that Fiona Apple originally wrote as an unreleased track and revamped specifically for the show, and you’ll notice that Apple might be hinting at someone specific. “I was screaming into the canyon at the moment of my death,” she sings. “The echo I created outlasted my last breath/My voice it made an avalanche and buried a man I never knew/And when he died, his widowed bride met your daddy, and they made you.”
