New Promo for Damages with Rose Byrne and Glenn Close

Check Out This Spooky New Promo For Damages

I first saw this promo for the second season of Damages before Saturday Night Live last week, and it caught me completely off guard. It looked so slick that I assumed it had to be part of the show, and I kept waiting for it to get funny.

Around the point that Ellen steps on Patty Hewes's throat, though, I started to understand what I was actually dealing with.

This is the first promo FX has released for the new season, which premieres Jan. 7. There's no new footage, unfortunately, but we do see both Ellen (Rose Byrne) and Patty (Glenn Close), and via a voiceover we learn a bit about what's been going on with Ellen since last we saw her. Specifically, she's now fabulously wealthy and working at the right hand of Patty — but she's clearly not forgiven her boss for that attempt on her life.

It seems consistent with what I heard back at the TCA press tour about Ellen really coming into her own this season. But can anyone scare Patty Hewes? To take a look at the promo for yourself, just

i'm still really upset with myself for not catching this show last season. i had seen the trailers in the movie theater and really really wanted to watch it but for some reason or another i've missed out. i'm going to have to go out of my way to get the first season and then catch up in time for Jan.

Rose is beautiful, very classical and elegant And on top of everything is very talented The year 2008 is not over and is the year when Rose appeared more publicly. I hope that this year and at the end of next year Rose made many friends And also make great characters in major films and an excellent 2nd season of Damages Rose deserves everything nice Success Rose Byrne

Oooo, looks good! Is it wrong that, being an unemployed recent grad with tons of loans, I'm sort of jealous of Rose's job ;)

Oh man, I forgot about this show. I kinda drifted away from it after the first few episodes, but now I kinda want to watch it again. Hmm.
