When you use Evaluate, the Table part of the expression gets
evaluated to a list *before* Plot assigns values to x.
Consequently, Plot sees a list of functions to be plotted and
they get plotted in different colors.
When you omit Evaluate, Plot provides a specific value for x
then Table does its thing. The result is Plot sees a single
multi-valued function which it plots in a single color.
