"She'll be back. Trust me," Patty Hewes utters with promise, staring straight ahead behind Oliver Peoples sunglasses. Her last words of Season Two stand still in the air between she and Tom. Broken by a long shot of Patty as she struts her high-powered self to the end of the same pier that ended Season One's finale.
DAMAGES Season Two finale was brilliant, baffling, exhilarating, and exhausting. God, or should I say the FX execs, knows when we will discover whether or not Ellen actually accepts the new job offer; if Wes, after saving Patty's life, has now formed an unholy alliance with her. Of course, Philip Bosco's character from last season was conspicuously absent for the duration of Season Two. And let us not forget his character introduced Ellen to those corrupt Feds.
I hope we don't have to wait until next year for a fresh crop of episodes. Until then, we can always look forward to Glenn Close's gorgeous voice belting out "The Star Spangled Banner" at the Mets home opener. Yay! At Citi Field. Oy vey!
