A case too far? The stakes have never been higher, or more deadly, for Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne) and Patty Hewes (Glenn Close) in the fifth and final season of DAMAGES. Images: DIRECTV.

She's taken on some of the most powerful, influential and corrupt businessmen and women in the world. She's been shot, stabbed and car rammed by family and friends who have felt the sharp end of her mind and tongue in pursuit of her own set of unique ideals, but now manipulative and hierarchical super lawyer/super bitch Patty Hewes, as always brilliantly played by Glenn Close, goes into battle against one of her own, her once protege and confidante, Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne), as the final series of the hit legal thriller series DAMAGES goes out on a memorable high with its critically well received fifth and final season of ten episodes, recently aired on the American DIRECTV channel and likely to arrive on British airwaves, via DVD from SONY HOME ENTERTAINMENT, in the new year.

Getting her own back after having been betrayed once too often during Season Four's investigation into a corrupt arms dealer, former military man (John Goodman) and his High Star corporation, Parsons takes part in the legal battle against Hewes by her son, Michael (Zachary Booth), to win back his daughter in a custody battle, but as the fireworks and cat scratching begins, an even bigger case breaks out that will overshadow their personal events and ego clashes, one that will hurtle them all back into a new web of deceit and intrigue, as well as even greater danger for the pair, both personally and professionally, as a brutal murder sees them put everything on the line for one last time.

Patti Hewes takes on the defence for the Wikileaks-esque whistleblower character of Channing McClaren (Ryan Phillippe).

No strangers in using today's controversial headlines to craft intriguing and atmospheric storytelling, series writers and creators Todd A. Kessler, Glenn Kessler and Daniel Zelman start their final year with the mother of game-changing, shock opening episode teases, as we quickly enter the shadowy and criminal world of super banks, whistleblowers, the controversies surrounding freedom of information, and the price of fame, all of which merge into a river of blood, pain and falsehoods. The very domain in which Patty Hewes has thrived and been consumed by for so long...

Look out for more on the final season of DAMAGES on the KOOL TV site in the not too distant future...
