Last week on Damien, after a mindtrip around the VA hospital last week culminated with him assisting a patient with suicide, Damien (Bradley James) went to his family’s estate, locked himself in the garage, turned the car on, and went to sleep. Of course, he didn’t succeed in killing himself; a couple of canine companions showed up to drag his carcass from the vehicle. Ann Rutledge (Barbara Hershey) tells the doctors it was an accident brought on by substance abuse… but Damien is tired of the copious amount of death that surrounds him.

Created by Glen Mazzara
Starring Bradley James, Barbara Hershey, Megalyn EK, Omid Abtahi, Scott Wilson, David Meunier, Tiffany Hines
A&E
Air Date: Monday, April 4th, 2016, 10pm

Damien (Bradley James) is in a strange place. One one hand he is bonafide hero; a decorated war photographer who spends his spare time pulling kids off train tracks. Conversely, he’s also the Antichrist… you know that pesky elephant in the room. While Damien appears unwilling to follow his destiny, those around him seem destined to force it on to him. Above all, is Ann Rutledge (Barbara Hershey) who runs a global enterprise and is a lawyer for the Thorn family estate. She successfully threw off Detective James Shay (David Meunier) with stories of Damien being a personal mess prone to fits of anger and craziness. Although Shay and his family were attacked by mysterious forces at their home, so obviously, they are still viewed as a threat to Damien’s existence.

Damien 104-13

Damien
Season 1 Episode 4: “The Number Of A Man”
Directed by Bronwen Hughes
Written by Nazrin Choudhury
Created by Glen Mazzara
Starring Bradley James, Barbara Hershey, Megalyn EK, Omid Abtahi, Scott Wilson, David Meunier, Tiffany Hines
A&E
Air Date: Monday, March 28th, 2016, 10pm

Last week on Damien, Damien (Bradley James) seemed to accept his fate, or at least part of it. Despite his misgivings about Ann Rutledge (Barbara Hershey), a mysterious one percenter with a shrine to him, he willingly confided in her. Also tugging at Damien’s strings was John Lyon (Scott Wilson). Lyon simultaneously warned him about Rutledge, but was working with her to expedite the process of turning Damien from a war photographer into his rightful role as the Antichrist. Damien can’t seem to grasp the whole evil concept though, as he’s spent his life documenting the worst travesties, and even last week saved a young boy from an oncoming train. The bizarre “accidents” that follow Damien around peaked the interest of Detective James Shay (David Meunier), who in turn has gained certain unwanted canine followers…

Damien
Season 1 Episode 2: “Second Death”
Directed by Ernest R. Dickerson
Written by Mark L. Kruger
Created by Glen Mazzara
Starring Bradley James, Barbara Hershey, Megalyn EK, Omid Abtahi, Scott Wilson, David Meunier, Tiffany Hines, Sam Anderson
A&E
Air Date: Monday, March 14th, 2016, 10pm

Damien is based on Richard Donner’s 1976 horror classic about a wealthy family whose son is not what he seems. The film featured an Oscar winning score from Jerry Goldsmith and all time great actors including Oscar winner Gregory Peck and David Warner. The series, which debuted last week, introduces us to Damien Thorn age 30, celebrating his birthday in Damascus, Syria photographing the violence ravaging the city. He appears to be a totally normal guy. Looks can be deceiving.

“Damien I love you. It’s all for you!” Those are the words that trigger Damien Thorn’s memories of a childhood long since forgotten. Those words; spoken by a mysterious woman in the middle of a war-torn street, give Damien (Bradley James) visions of his birthday party when his nanny uttered the same phrase before leaping to her death with a noose wrapped around her neck. Desperately trying to figure out how a stranger in Syria knows his name, Damien and ex-girlfriend and current colleague Kelly (Tiffany Hines) find clues leading to a professor whose old teacher met with Damien’s father years back. Before the end of the premiere episode the professor and Kelly met mysterious ends. Damien is tormented by his visions, and seems to be aware of the ramifications and their meaning… that he is the Beast, the Antichrist.

Damien
Season 1 Episode 1: “The Beast Rises”
Directed by Shekhar Kapur
Written by Glen Mazzara
Created by Glen Mazzara

A&E
Air Date: Monday, March 7th, 2016, 10pm

Richard Donner’s The Omen (1976) is legitimately the scariest movie I ever saw. As a young kid, I made it an hour before I ran screaming from the room and slept with the light on for weeks. I couldn’t get Jerry Goldsmith’s Oscar winning score out of my head, and I had nightmares of the theme, “Ave Satani.” While The Exorcist (1973) is more notorious, The Omen was more subtle, relying on the music, and editing to create horrific moments, rather than persistent gross out shocks. So when I heard a show based on one my favorite horror films was coming to the network that already has one of the best horror shows on TV (A&E/Bates Motel) I was psyched. I was even more psyched after watching the premiere episode “The Beast Rises,” the 33-year old version of myself was similar to the 9-year old; after watching it, I stayed awake another 2 hours unable to sleep.
