Motion to dismiss the wait for the final season of Damages: granted! Tonight the legal thriller returns to action (DirecTV, 9 p.m.), and all eyes will be on cunning litigator Patty Hewes (Glenn Close) and ambitious former protégé Ellen (Rose Byrne). This season, the two adversaries-at-law will match wits in the courtroom one way and another: While Ellen is eager to testify against Patty in the custody hearing for Patty’s granddaughter, they wind up on opposite sides in a case involving the mercurial founder of a whistle-blowing website (Ryan Phillippe) and an ambitious single mother (Jenna Elfman) who works at an investment bank that’s engaging in some shady business. Before you tune in, read what Close told EW about season 5. READ FULL STORY »

‘DAMAGES’: THE END IS HERE

In the first teaser for season 5 of Damages, which returns to DirecTV on July 11, we saw only Rose Byrne’s Ellen lying lifelessly on the street, presumable after a fall — or a push? — from a high-rise. The new clip at least sets the tone and introduces some new characters, including Ryan Phillippe and Jenna Elfman. “You may dislike my methods, but with me, you’ll stay relevant,” says Phillippe’s Channing McLaren, who runs a website that exposes Wall Street misconduct. He persuades Elfman’s Naomi Walling to leak some damaging information, but when it’s traced back to her, it becomes a war in and out of the courtroom, with Ellen and Patty on different sides. “You want to end this once and for all?” asks Close’s Patty. “Now’s your chance.”

From the sounds of it, the teaser for Damages‘ final season may have been scored by Skrillex on a particularly dark day.

John Goodman (Roseanne) joins the action this year, as does Chris Messina (Julie & Julia), who plays a high school friend of Ellen (Rose Byrne) and a former decorated soldier who is now working for a private security firm in Afghanistan.
