Emma Lahana on "Emily Owens M.D." (2012)

Former Yellow Ranger, Emma Lahana (Kira, Dino Thunder) appeared last month on the CW series "Emily Owens M.D." Lahana guest starred as Hannah in the show's sixth episode, titled "Emily and...the Question of Faith." While assisting Dr. Bandari, Emily (series star Mamie Gummer) encounters a heart patient named Peter, who has a history of heart problems and multiple surgeries upon his return for yet another procedure. Peter's girlfriend, Hannah, is at his side. Emily is moved by their very vocal religious values and when Peter flatlines during surgery, Emily watches Dr. Bandari work overtime to re-start his heart which is ultimately successful after several minutes. But when Emily reveals to Peter what happened, he realizes he died and experienced nothing. His faith in God is shattered, crushing Hannah who leaves him. Emily reaches out to Hannah and tries to help her understand that maybe Peter's experience and questioning of his faith could be God's plan as well. Hannah returns to Peter, vowing to be with him no matter what, restoring both their faith. "Emily Owens M.D." was cancelled a few days after this episode aired.
