Damages' third season started off on fire, but like any fire things eventually sizzle down and the show has gone from really good to just great. The final scene with a HITMAN! showing up made the episode for me. That felt reminiscent of the good old days of Damages, as did reliving all the classic scenes during the filming of the movie. Do you think you'll remember any particular scene from this episode by next week? Probably not, but the fact that you remember things from 2007 speaks volumes about where the show once was and where it is now.
I am looking forward to seeing how it all unravels in the season finale in deux weeks, but the show is capable of so much better than this.
