TV Tonight: Damages

When I started watching Damages on FX over the summer, I figured it would be a pretty straightforward legal thriller. To my surprise, the show actually has had so many twists, turns and timelines, it's practically on par with Lost. There have been far-past flashbacks and recent-past flashbacks as well as scenes from the present day, which find young lawyer Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne) in jail accused of murdering her fiance.

In tonight's next-to-last episode, all the timelines collide — and, supposedly, what connects the ruthless Patty Hewes (Glenn Close) and her case against the powerful billionaire Arthur Frobisher (Ted Danson) to the murder of Ellen's fiance will be revealed. There's no word yet on whether the show will get a second season — and frankly, with the story lines we've seen so far, I don't see how it could — so I'm hopeful that this twisted mystery will be resolved over the next couple of weeks. Meanwhile, if you've fallen behind on Damages or gotten lost in the twists, it's not too late to catch up with the clips and episode descriptions on the show's official site.

If you're still watching, tell me: What's your theory about what happens?

what do you mean, you don't see how it could get renewed? this show is great, actual story line! no fluff, no crap romantic filler (you know what i mean). this show could continue. the characters don't all have to be there.

This is such a great show.... how many people are left alive -- 5? Btw, Glenn Close said that they are planning a second season -- I also do not see how or why would ellen want to keep on working for her if Patty gets out of this unscathed.

I'm not sure that I have any theories, but I have been a faithful follower of this series. I absolutely love Glenn Close and it has been great to see her in a TV series. She is an amazing actor. Ted Danson has shown a different side in this series as well.

I'm really hooked on this series and, while I have no credible theories about what happens next, I'm looking forward to finding out. While I've really enjoyed watching all summer, I also am ready for the show to end. Like you, Buzz, I'm not sure that there can be a season two. Some shows shine if they are over when it's time to be over.

-I agree 95% with shopper10024, Lila Tomayo killed the fiancé. But then again she had the keys to the apartment why not use them. The killer knocked on the door and waited for David to open. -And Ellen's attack is Frobisher related. Maybe he thinks that the tape is in Patty's apartment. -Uncle Pete got rid of Fiske's body that's why he was so strange in Patty's Office. -Tom doesn't know anything about the tape or Fiske's Death as Patty said he's a great #2. -Maybe Patty Hewes split because of a nervous breakdown due to Fiske's suicide and the past memories of her own attack. I think this show is about how someone becomes cold like Patty Hewes. We see the changes in Ellen in each episode. I really see Ellen being a total b!tch because of David's death. And becoming better than Tom.

I'm so ready for this show to WRAP THINGS UP! They've been dragging it along for the past few weeks. Geez. But I am hooked, and still watch it regardless - so, yeah.

In one episode with Patti's son, they mentioned her being attacked many years ago. Perhaps there is some connection to that. I think that crazy girl killed Ellen's fiance. I'm totally hooked on the show!
