The O.C. and Vampire Diaries vet holds down juicy roles on a pair of Thursday at 9 p.m. dramas. She was sadly nowhere to be seen last night on the CW's spy series — back after a too-long hiatus — as Amanda, Division's master manipulator. But fear not, Amanda fans: She'll be back next week, hooking up mole Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) to a lie detector.
Meanwhile, last night Clarke reprised her recurring role on CSI as Lady Heather, the dominatrix who got a kick out of flirting with Gil Grissom (William Petersen). Now working as a sex therapist, "Dr. Kessler" assisted Grissom's wife, Sara (Jorja Fox), on a case involving a murder victim who engaged in feline role-playing. Clarke didn't generate much heat with Laurence Fishburne's cold-fish Langston, but she's still one of TV's sultriest sex kittens.
Is two much of Melinda Clarke never enough?
