The fourth season of Damages isn't coming until next month, but it will be well worth the wait judging by the emotional trailers.

In the trailers, we get glimpses of the drama to come, including nudity of the non-titillating variety, hints of torture and John Goodman playing a very loud, corrupt and scary military contractor. We can't wait!

A past fling perhaps?Things get interesting — and personal — when Hanson is scrubbing in and sees a vision of a little girl holding a sand pail. Who is she? A former patient he wasn't able to save?
