Damages 3.13 Recap, Part 2: Finale Ultima

11 Mar

Episode 13:  The Next One’s Gonna Go in Your Throat, cont.
When is season 4 out on Netflix?!

"Yeah, Patty changed her mind because that's something Patty does easily and often, especially about stuff that involves the safety of her two BFFs."

Tom and Ellen meet on the street (outside Ellen’s house?).  She’s realized her bag is gone, and she’s going to file a report about it.  Tom says he talked to Patty, who has reconsidered and now wants Tom to go through with the deal.  Whoa.  I do not believe that.  Does Ellen believe that for real, or does she want to do it as badly as Tom does?  Ooh!  I understand why that flashforward of Patty crying, “I told you to stop!” happened!!!!!  That screaming is either to Tom or Ellen, not some hired hitman killing Tom!!!!

Damages 3.13 Recap, Part 1: Finale Penultima

10 Mar

Episode 13:  “The Next One’s Gonna Go in Your Throat”
First Post of Two (three if you count the notes page) Alert–It’s the finale, after all!

Patty’s at the lakehouse in her all-business sunglasses.  She flashes back to May 1972 (as a title card informs us).  A doctor tells Patty being a mother’s more important that any law school stuff she has planned.  Her voiceover seems to capitulate.  A blonde who may or may not be a young Patty stands outside the fence at a horse pen and pets a horse.  Julian Decker appears from out of the barn and asks what she’s up to all the way out there.

"Surprise! I'm real only in Patty's flashbacks!"

Um… Julian Decker has been a hallucination the whole time?!?!?!?

Damages 3.12 Recap: When Season 1’s Bearded Chickens Come Home to Roost, and Tom Is Dreamy Again Instead of Being a Big Wuss

6 Mar

Episode 12:  You Were His Little Monkey

Patty falls asleep in her office chair.  In her dream, Patty’s looking through a hole in a wall to see that horse again, except this time he’s appropriately in an outdoor pen.

Back in real life, Judge has looked over the brief about TM and the charity/Antigua money laundering and has decided to let them continue with the case.   And there are so many stripes in this scene. Patty and Tom are each wearing two different stripes, and the Judge is wearing three different stripes.  Whoa, costume designers!

“Is this an inflated y-axis?”

However, Judge wants to talk to Patty alone about Tom’s financial situation (because he’s recently found out about it).  Patty seems surprised and concerned.

In Patty’s office, Patty grills Tom about why he didn’t tell her sooner and ends the scene by telling him, “You know what you need to do.”  My roommate says, “Kill yourself.”

Damages 3.11 Recap, Part 1: When Patty Totally Breaks Up with Ellen

1 Mar

Episode 11:  All That Crap about Your Family
I have the feeling this post will run long because of all the necessary pictures of broken-hearted Ellen, so this will be the first post of two. 

Ellen arrives at Ann Connell’s cozy suburban home and exchanges awkward pleasantries.

Tom rushes into Patty’s office to inform her that Gates has arrested TM, and they wonder how he knew to do that just at that moment.  Or do they wonder?!

TM, meanwhile, wants to know why she’s under arrest.  Well, her boyfriend is here illegally from Antigua, and housing an illegal alien is illegal!  She wants Patty to be her lawyer.  Duh.

That’s just what Gates wanted all along, and he and Nondescript DA Guy pat each other on the back about arresting her and figuring out Ellen’s allegiance.  When Nondescript DA Guy asks if he’ll fire Ellen, Gates tells him to send Ellen to his office “when she gets back from wherever the hell she is.”

Ellen’s now sitting on Ann Connell’s Maiden Aunt Furniture.  If I grow up to be a Maiden Aunt, someone slap me out of buying overstuffed floral anything.  Those are the absolute worst.

Damages 3.5 Recap: When It’s Not Patty’s Birthday, and Ellen Doesn’t Bake Cupcakes for Patty’s Nonbirthday and also Doesn’t Care about the New Associate Patty’s Not Hiring Just to Not Get under Ellen’s Skin

4 Feb

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!

Damages Season 2 Recap (All Spoilers, All the Time)

31 Oct

Season 2’s recap and some predictions about season 3.

Patty’s old flame, William Hurt, sends a package of chemical lab results to Patty’s office.  He’s a chemist for a firm who tests chemicals for Big Bad Oil Company Who Hates Miners, the Environment, and Women.

Why is everybody so goo-goo-eyed over William Hurt? Look at that guy. Also listen to that guy. What weird, stodgy acting.

BBOCWHMEW is poisoning the environment, as usual, and William Hurt can’t stand it anymore.

His wife really couldn’t stand it, and she was going to speak up about it, but he killed her and then called Darrel Hammond (who is the cleaner-upper bad guy for BBOCWHMEW à la Beardy for Frobisher, except every time I look at him all I see is ‘90s Saturday Night Live Bill Clinton) to clean up the mess, which he does.

Damages Season 1 Recap (All Spoilers, All the Time)

31 Oct

So, I got this blog a few years ago and never did anything with it.

 And then a while back I started reading some live-blogged Lifetime Movies and Xena Warrior Princess episodes and stuff, and I thought it looked like a lot of fun.  So I started thinking about what I could live blog, and I decided on Damages season 3.  But I figured I’d do a recap of seasons 1 and 2 first, partially for any readers I probably won’t have and partially to get the tone down. So here’s season 1.
