    I watched this episode five (5) years ago, and I watched today Sept 13, 2009 and still think is one of the best finales I have watched in TV in many years,in many series over the years. I think it was the best episode of Las Vegas in its entire season. Sad ending with Danny McCoy news of his father death and Nessa departure to England, also Mary Connell going away to Hawaii and Sam resigning. Remarkable appearance by Gladys Knight and the Pipes, I liked that part very much, it reminded me of youth years. It prepares the audience for a new third season. Perfect Score.moreless
  • With what simply was a goodbye to every character on the show, 'Las Vegas' proved once again it does season finales like no other.

    There where the previous episode was boring and forgetful, 'Centennial' kicks off with a short but memorable history of the city itself. Seeing the crew together listening to stories of an old man is as nostalgic as this episode gets, because before we know it, trouble has infiltrated everyone's life. The episode focused a lot on Nessa, giving this last-in-line character the spot light she deserved. Though her send-off was quit sudden and unresolved (much like the exit of Cox two years later), it was nice to see Thompson being able to show off her talent for once. The scenes between Nessa and Ed through out the episode reflected the charm of the show; dramatic and sometimes emotional, but always light-hearted and entertaining enough to rise above the soap-level. While it was fun to see Bon Jovi and some football legend playing tricks on each other back and forth, having Knight over to sing the final heartwarming song was the eye-catcher of the evening. The episode built perfectly up to the very end (which may have been dreaded out too long), but it came to a nice open ending. Sam showing her true emotions and love for the Montecito and it's staff was endearing, and underappreciated by the time limit, Ed running/speed walking after his daughter(s) took a plane to London was pretty exciting too. But having Danny's dad dying suddenly, not short after we said goodbye to Luis, was just plain shocking. Not to mention we'll always miss out on the Danny/Mary love that never came to be. Basically everyone had left the Montecito, including Mike who was to go off with his aunt on the road, except for Danny, who obviously had other stuff going on, so when the final seconds came up and the legendary hotel was blown to pieces (which for 2005 was some awesome CGI work, I must say) we were all left with a hole in our stomach of how this show could ever reprise. Luckily it did for a little while, because we got to enjoy much more goodness that was this show, and for three more times, Gary Scott Thompson treated us with huge cliffhangers that were done so big, that better viewed shows could learn a thing or twelve from him.moreless

    It’s the best and worst that a season finally could be. The best cause its just all come together in an end. Nyssa and her situation with her sister. Dalenda going with her don’t make any sense but why not? Mary and Jake they look cute together but I don’t know why there is something I don’t like about him, like he’s hiding something but maybe its just me not believing that Mary finally liked someone other then Danny. The explosion of the Montecito. I had tears on my eyes. First I was in a shock of Danny’s father death and then ((bamb)) gosh. Its really the best series ever.moreless

    I thought it was a very emotional episode, because Mary leaves and forget to say goodbye to Danny!!! Also his date tells him that his father died in a caraccident. And ofcourse everyone was curious what would happen with the Montecito and who would be the owner!!! Mary and Jake were going to Hawaii and you could see Mary was not sure to go to Hawaii because of Danny, every episode you can see the thing between them, some people call it 'True Love'. It was a lovely episode and the acting was again great and especially Danny and Mary were great!!!moreless
  • I love this episode

    9.1
    There are many things going on in this episode. The main point is the sale of the Montecito and the big question of who will buy it. With a very emotional subplot of Nessa finding out about her father and other family and that Ed lied to her.



    However, my favorite part of this episode is with Jon Bon Jovi and John Elway running around the casino playing practical jokes on each other. When I watch it I could imagine that rich and famous could (and probably) would do this. I thought it was great to watch the fun they were having. And the end, seeing the empty casino and the pending implosion and not knowing who bought it until next season.



    Great season finale!!!!
