A case takes its toll on Ellen's emotions, but Patty urges her not to give up in order to become a special attorney.
A promo for "Damages" season 4 has been unleashed to tide fans over its premiere this July. Glenn Close and Rose Byrne will return as Patty Hewes and Ellen Parsons respectively, and this time they are embroiled in a wrongful-death suit against a private military contractor, Howard T. Erickson.
Erickson is supplying the U.S. Government with security forces in Afghanistan and is protected by his connections within the highest echelons of power in Washington, D.C. A soldier who now works for the security firm, Chris Sanchez, is drawn into the web of intrigue when Ellen and Patty set their sights on his corrupt employer.
Patty urges Ellen not to give up, but the case seemingly takes its toll on Ellen's emotion. Things will be more complicated with the presence of Jerry Boorman, a shadowy opportunist with ties to both Erickson and the Middle East, and is intimately involved in the season-long conspiracy at the heart of the lawsuit.
John Goodman is cast in season 4 as Howard T. Erickson, with Chris Messina playing Chris Sanchez. Dylan Baker portrays Jerry Boorman while Bailey Chase will appear as Ellen's love interest. The fourth season will premiere Wednesday, July 13 at 10 P.M. ET/PT on DirecTV's the Audience Network.
