Bill Herndon (Judd Hirsch) refers to Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne) as "Legally Brunette." This is a reference to Reese Witherspoon's movie, "Legally Blonde." Ellen Parson's only client in this season of Damages is Reese Witherspoon's ex-husband of 8 years. See more »


When Joe Scully follows Ellen into her office building (starts at 19:34), Ellen is wearing brown, wide-legged trousers. When she enters her conference room a few seconds later, she is wearing a gray skirt. When she walks out on the roof a few seconds after that, she is again wearing the trousers. A day or two later (at around 58 mins), Ellen is wearing the exact same outfit she wore in the conference room - gray skirt, brown blouse, dark jacket. See more »

Damages I Like Your Chair
12 September 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

As Ellen said maybe she will be back in her office I wonder if something is going to happen next week between the two. Strong episode overall and just goes to show how Patty can make me people tell her what she wants to hear. Ellen has become so like Patty that when she sat in Patty's chair it seemed to me to be a symbol that after these five years (8 years in the show) she has overtaken Patty and maybe could beat her in the case if she makes it to the court. John Hannah was good once again getting the maybe not buzzed about the performance but the better one of the two male supporting characters. Sure the storyline with Ellen's parents may have been filler but tonight it really just worked with me and Ellen opposite her father was so tense for me as I was wondering would he hit her but then her pulling the gun on him was stellar for Ellen as it just proves more and more she has become Patty 2.0. Also great for Ellen was when she finally faced her fears by facing her attempted killer which just proves how underrated Byrne is on this show. With only one episode left in this series in is sad as once again this years we loose some of the best written female characters on this show which makes me sad. I cannot wait to see if all these theory's come true or not as I believe the writers will end with a bang.
