Tv Season Info

The third series, which occurs one year after the events of series 2, revolves around the fallout from a Ponzi scheme orchestrated by Louis Tobin (Len Cariou), the patriarch of an über-wealthy and dysfunctional family. Patty (Glenn Close) and Tom (Tate Donovan) are assigned by the government to delve into the case to determine how much Tobin's family and associates knew about his dealings and to locate the hidden money. The case proves especially challenging for Tom, who invested with Tobin, lost a large chunk of money and must keep his secret from Patty. And though Ellen (Rose Byrne) has relocated to the district attorney's office, she's inevitably drawn back to Patty's side as she begins work on the case to bring potential criminal charges against those involved in the scandal.

Critic Reviews for Damages Season 3

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (13)

The rewards are worth the cost, because few shows on television are written and acted with such fascinating mystery.

Jan 25, 2010 | Full Review…

Gorgeously acted, written, paced, structured and conceived, "Damages" remains one of the best shows on TV - and maybe the most enjoyably addictive.

Top Critic

Tom, while always a serviceable character, really exploded off the screen this season. His plight to recover his own family's lost money was inspired and harrowing.

Dec 3, 2018 | Rating: 8.8/10 | Full Review…

With such audacious plot twists does Damages sink its hooks into us.

Jul 17, 2018 | Full Review…

That first episode is one hell of a tease, and it's got me fish-hooked by the mouth.

Jun 18, 2018 | Full Review…

As season three begins, Damages finally gets its formula right.

Jan 25, 2010 | Full Review…

A stunning premiere that shows the promise of returning Damages back to its season-one glory.

Top Critic

It requires attention, but it's worth it. If you're a fan of legal battles fought to the death, you should take this case.

Top Critic

Martin Short! As the hard-ass lawyer! This is why Damages is one of the best shows on television -- it operates without fear.

Dec 3, 2018 | Full Review…

So we... are long since prepared to accept that whatever pedestrian conclusions we might hope to abduct over... will inevitably be eclipsed by the orgasmic series of revelations with which the season will conclude.
