Damages 3.11 Recap, Part 2: When Patty Totally Breaks Up with Alex Benjamin

2 Mar

Episode 11:  All That Crap about Your Family, cont.

To cut all the Patty-and-Ellen’s-torturous-breakup tension in this episode, someone decided it would be a good idea to have some retarded Frobisher time.  They’re having a read-through of Frobisher’s movie with some baby playing Patty Hewes.

If this gal can play Patty Hewes, sign me up for the audition list.  Frobisher thinks something’s off, though, but can’t put his finger on what.  He does comment that they need a real actress to truly portray Patty’s evilness.  Patti LuPone!  Patti LuPone!

Joe’s so worried about TM being in custody that he goes to see Zedeck.  Flashback to Thanksgiving.  Zedeck gives some exposition about why Dad Tobin used TM as the courier—he could trust her, and he was desperate because of the impending investigation.  But Joe wants to know how much TM knew.  He doesn’t trust that TM will stay loyal.  I’m worried for her.

Damages 3.10 Recap: When Ellen Starts Having Weird Dreams, Too

29 Feb

Episode 3.10:  “Tell Me I’m Not Racist”

Ellen’s bringing flowers to Patty’s house again?  Is there a non-dinner party I don’t know about?  Oh, weird lighting and weird baby music in the background, so Ellen must be having weird dreams now, too!  So, Ellen’s carrying these yellow flowers into Patty’s, and she keeps calling out for Patty as she looks around the seemingly empty apartment, but when she gets to the kitchen, there’s a brunette we’ve never seen before making supper, and she’s talking to Ellen as though Ellen is a kid.

“Wanna stir the blood-esque sauce, little one?”

Damages 3.7 Recap: When Patty and Ellen Use their Respective Rebounds As Pawns

8 Feb

Disclaimer 2/13/12–I promise I did not read this recap until just this moment:  This other recapper and I are incidentally totally on the same page (we even use several of the same-ish screencaps).

Episode 7:  “You Haven’t Replaced Me”

Bourbon and Oreos? At 4 AM? Barfalicious, Patty.

Patty wakes Ellen up with a 4 AM phone call.  Ellen frets sleepily, wondering if everything is ok.  No worries:  Patty’s chilling in her office eating the worst snack ever and just called to leave a voicemail inviting Ellen to a little get together at her place on Thursday.  Ellen capitulates and makes an ambiguous facial expression as she falls back asleep next to Appalachia Reporter.

Is this a smile or a grimace?

Dammit, Tom! Why you gotta be married? And dead?

Tom follows DMM’s daughter into an Antiguan bank, where she meets with a woman in a jaunty yellow scarf.  If I worked at an Antiguan bank, I would want to be just like that woman.  In other fashion news, Tom’s Antigua traveling suit = BEST.  He is so classy.  Do I have a crush on Tom?

A Bank Dude sees Tom watching Tessa Marchetti—TM, as it were—and ousts him.  Tom apparently makes a better CSI than a PI because he got made pretty darn quickly.

TM goes to the back room and gives her check to Jaunty Scarf, signs three papers, and receives a fat envelope.

On the phone, Patty advises Tom to stay in Antigua because maybe he can get TM to talk.  Good thinking, Patty:  I know Tom’s charm would work on me.  He’s so dreamy in Antigua!!!

Episode 6:  “Don’t Forget to Thank Mr. Zedeck”

Previously on: Julian Decker–that Patty stalker.  Oh no!  Is he secretly this Zedeck character?

Not to be confused with Baldie, Patty's replacement Uncle Pete

Bald Financial Analyst Lawyer’s trying to tell Tom and Mrs. Tom what to do, including but not limited to cutting costs (such as having a beach house) and  “tell[ing] Patty sooner or later.”

4 months later, the cops discuss Tom’s T.O.D., which is earlier than previously thought.  He had time to run Patty down before he died.  Bum bum bum!!!!!

Patty and Tom and the judge who appointed Patty the trustee of the Tobin estate meet.  He’s all up in their grill about how they haven’t really done anything with the case yet.

Episode 5:  “It’s Not My Birthday”Previously on:  That reporter from Appalachia?

Patty’s running late and talking on the phone.  She’s back in better clothes—those big collars on her shirts and all.  But why black?  I want that checked gray blazer back!

Patty turns a corner to see the ghost of Uncle Pete!

Wait.  Dream Pete?  He’s there for her birthday and has brought a present.  “It’s not my birthday,” says Patty.  Patty turns and there’s a horse in her house!
