Damages continues its riveting third season with an episode that does things a little differently.Todd Kessler tells TVGuide.com. That's right: There will be none of the show's trademark flash-forward timeline jumps."The unity of time — how that helps the thriller storytelling and the ride — we've just never done it before, and we really think it's one of our best episodes we've ever done," Kessler says.The episode focuses on Monday's cliff-hanger: An off-the-wagon Joe Tobin (Campbell Scott) confronts his father's mistress, Danielle, (Madchen Amick) and accidentally runs over her while backing out of the driveway. As luck would have it, Patty Hewes (Glenn Close) is also looking for Danielle, who, before being rendered unconscious by the accident, was planning to skip the country to avoid being subpoenaed in the Ponzi scheme investigation.Tate Donovan] are trying to figure out where she is and prevent her from getting on an airplane to leave the country. And Joe and Winstone [Martin Short] are trying to deal with this crisis of Danielle having been hit by a car."Kessler also says the hints dropped last week about Tom's relationship with Ellen (Rose Byrne) will begin to come to light. "It's something we're very excited about, because it's also taking the show to a place we haven't gone before," he says. "What is actually happening between them and how that's presented and how that puzzle comes together, we think, is going to be very exciting to follow."
