  • So does that mean Aimee will not be in Vegas anymore? I enjoyed what little we saw of her and thought she had really good chemistry with the son.

  • Aimee should have been a regular a while ago – she is basically Harrison’s only parent…she watches him 24-7

  • I hope not. Vegas has a lot of strong male characters, but only 3 females, Garcia included. I binge-watched the Vegas season-to-date over the holiday, and it’s noticeable how much more her character gets with each episode.

  • Showtime better end Dexter after eight seasons if they have the guts to do so.

    • I think older people assume it makes them look “young and hip.” Like my dad who still uses “you go girl!”

  • Harrison is now on Days of our Lives (don’t ask). Will they be aging him for the upcoming season?

  • i’m fine with her being a regular but doing it by putting her with Quinn doesn’t do it for me

  • Jennifer Love Hewitt’s still got it! Always loved hearing her sing.

    And yes, Aimee Garcia should be a regular on Vegas. I love her on that show!

  • I too am worried about what this means for Garcia’s Vegas role. Her character is great and the chemistry with Taylor Handley is amazing.
