Following last season’s legal battle and unprecedented victory over CEO billionaire Arthur Frobisher (Danson), Patty Hewes (Close) has the legal world at her feet. Just as she’s pondering her next move, Daniel Purcell (Hurt), a man from Patty’s mysterious past, storms back into her life, catapulting Patty into a new legal challenge. What starts as a domestic murder case escalates into the highest reaches of government as Patty unearths a vast conspiracy. At the same time, Ellen (Byrne), Patty’s once ambitious protégée, is on a mission to take down Patty. Ellen has agreed to act as an informant for the FBI, assisting them in their criminal investigation of Patty and the firm. As Patty unravels the mystery surrounding Purcell, she must also negotiate the perilous minefield both inside and outside her office.
“Damages” made its network debut on July 24, 2007. In its second season, the critically acclaimed drama series averaged 1.4 million viewers and received seven Emmy® nominations, with Close receiving her second Emmy® for her performance as Patty Hewes.
