    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.

  2. Joe says:

    Uh, oh, also means Aimee’s immediately promoted to death watch too

  3. JeniLee says:

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

  4. rockgolf says:

    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.

  5. Tran says:

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

  6. Britta Unfiltered says:

    “thatz”, Robin Strasser? Really? Does she have a 12-year old doing her Twitter updates for her?

  7. dan says:

    As per Debbie Morgan (Angie), “All My Children” starts production on 2/25/13.

  8. igor says:

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

  9. Joe says:

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

  10. Evan says:

    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!

  11. GeekGirl13 says:

    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.
