Wow! Bethany Butler's Performance!
14 September 2006 | by (Phoenix, AZ) – See all my reviews

Bethany Butler guest co-stars in this episode, and she delivers a world-class performance. You expect consistently good work from the regular stars and guest stars on this show, but I have seen this episode twice and on both occasions, Bethany Butler steals the scenes.

There is very little information about her on IMDb.

Nevertheless, she is not just a beautiful black woman. Ms. Butler gives her character a power punch that you won't forget, from her very first brief appearance to the climactic last scene. She delivers a range of emotions that are crystal clear and unforgettable.

I give the episode a 9 because the plot itself is a little bizarre and strains credulity, although it is delivered competently. I would have given it a 7, but for Ms. Butler's captivating performance. She doesn't depend upon sex appeal or stereotypes -- this is acting at its finest! Wow !
