SEASON PREMIERE: It’s the last season for both this series and TNT’s The Closer, so enjoy these strong female leads while TV is giving them to you. And in the case of Damages, there’s not just one strong woman at the core, but two: Glenn Close as ruthless attorney Patty Hewes, and Rose Byrne as her protégé Ellen Parsons, who’s turned out to be just as tough, and just as hard to read. Tonight’s final-season opener introduces a typically complex new client: Ryan Phillippe as an Internet muckraker clearly modeled after Julian Assange. Villain or hero? It’s a question you could – and should – ask about Patty and Ellen as well.
