  • Someone from Eds past comes to visit.

    9.1
    I thought that this episode of Las vegas was really funny. I liked that Eds old CIA partner was the head of security for the pop star Janet Ellis who is opening her new tour at the Montecito. I could not believe that Eds old partner was all over him and that Jillian ws jealous that he was spending time with her. I thought that it was great that Sam tried kicking out Gavin Brunson but he would not leave and when Ed tried to kick him out he told them that he was the new owner of the Montecito. I felt really bad for Lani that her watch was off by three minutes and she was not able to collect her jackpot but I really liked that Nessa set it up so Lani was able to get her money.moreless
  • I liked it.

    A woman from Ed's past poses as his wife and together they take down an assin who is going to kill a singer. Befire Long Ed and his olny friend rekindle their relationship which makes even Ed's wife unsure about how they feel towards each other. And how deep there realtionship has gone in the past. If Las Vegas keeps up these good episodes thatn i can see it around for a lot longer. Also Mike gets a little more involved in this episode when a woman who is underage by three minutes wins the jackpot of over 100,000 but she is unable to claim it. Like this one.moreless
