Heart-wrenching
31 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Marlee Matlin thoroughly deserved her Emmy nomination for her performance as the mother a 7-year-old girl who was raped and murdered by her soccer coach. Matlin's character, Sally Berg, is put on trial for murder after she shoots the soccer coach - an act which is caught on a live TV news broadcast.

Matlin's anguished breakdown when she takes the stand is truly painful to watch. Doubtless that scene earned her the Emmy nod.

This episode also resolves the long-running feud between Bobby and Lindsay over their wedding ... with a most unusual, but fitting, solution.
