Review

This heart wrenching drama is definitely a must see. Rebecca Ferguson did a superb job in her big role as Dinah. The wardrobe fits perfectly into this biblical based drama. The writers did an excellent job with the screenplay and it contains no fillers, which is a huge plus. This episode is just a follow up of the wonderful tale of beautiful and talented Dinah. This episode deserves an 8 of 10.
