This was an entertaining and complicated episode.

Who played April Troost's father? He looked like Kenny Rogers!I looked to see if there were credits given to the actor and I did not see the character listed. This was a good and surprising episode. It was filled with many twists and turns and required that the viewer follow closely. I also noted that the character sounded like Kenny Rogers. While most episodes are clearly "whodunits" the plot slowly developed from the beginning when April appeared to be the presumed victim. She was sympathetic character under the story evolved into an unexpected twist when the character developed into a cunning, manipulative and conniving master con artist who worked in concert with her mother who who had obviously trained her daughter well. Seldom are we treated to such deeply developed characters in a one hour drama.
