According to the Boston Herald’s Mark A. Perigard, Glenn Close’s performance in the series finale is Emmy-worthy, particularly in a confrontational scene with Patty’s father. She’s been nominated four times for the role and has won twice.
The 70-minute episode — titled “But You Don’t Do That Anymore” — was written by series creators Glenn Kessler, Todd Kessler and Daniel Zelman and was directed by Glenn Kessler. It wraps up the season-long mystery involving the murder of whistle-blower Naomi Walling (Jenna Elfman), as well as the court case against Channing McLaren (Ryan Phillippe), the founder of a WikiLeaks-like site called McClarenTruth.org.
It will also resolve the flash-forward that started the season in which we saw Patty’s former protege, Ellen (Rose Byrne), sprawled out in an alley, as if she’d been pushed off a rooftop. It seems that Ellen would do anything to take Patty down but did Patty beat her to the punch? Tune in tonight… or whenever.
