Noah Solloway, his wife, Helen, and his four children, Whitney, Martin, Trevor and Stacey depart for Montauk, New York, on Long Island to spend another summer at the estate of Helen's wealthy parents. Noah is a New York City public school teacher and Williams College alumnus who has had one novel published, has been struggling to write a second, and is constantly berated and belittled by Helen's parents, the Butlers, for not being good enough. At a stop for lunch at the Montauk diner named "The Lobster Roll" the Solloway's encounter Alison Lockhart, serving as their waitress who assists with their youngest when she begins choking. Noah is intrigued by Alison, who is upset by the incident, and offers her some restitution for her help, which she refuses. It is the birthday of Alison's now deceased son, Gabriel, and she is struggling through her day. Later that evening the two meet again by chance on the beach where Alison's extended family is gathered at a bonfire. Noah walks Alison back to her house where he remembers her as flirtatious, inviting him to join her in the outdoor shower as she undresses, which he declines. Alison remembers a casual, friendly conversation with an improper advance by Noah, the shower taking place after Noah has left. When Allison's husband, Cole, arrives back from the bonfire they fight over the differences in which the two are dealing with the death of Gabriel and end up having 'angry' sex on the car in the driveway, with Noah looking on having been drawn back by the shouting. Throughout the season, the memories of both Noah and Alison are periodically interrupted by a current day interview interrogation with Detective Jeffries (Victor Williams) investigating a mysterious death.
