I was thoroughly distracted during this episode of “Vegas.” It wasn’t because of the plot or something else going on. As soon as I saw D.B. Sweeney all I could think about was “The Cutting Edge” and how much I wanted to watch the movie.
Dad: Did you see who the bad guy was?
Me: Oh yeah. As soon as I saw him I knew he was involved. Then I couldn’t stop thinking about wanting to watch the movie.
Dad: It is a good one.
Me: You know what bugs me? We never find out if they won the gold medal. I mean, it’s great that they fell in love but what about the medal?
Dad: Yeah, that always bugs me too.
Back to the story: D.B. Sweeney helped kill a guy by putting his body in a cement mixer. I think that was supposed to make police think the Mafia was involved.
Dad: Real mobsters would have buried him in the cement, not left him in the mixer.
Me: Of course you would know that…
I am glad the brother finally made his move on Mia. I mean I get that things were slow back in the day but at his pace I was expecting him to ask her out in Season 3. What I didn’t see coming was Rizzo killing the singer, his new fiancee.
Dad: Yeah, that was cold blooded.
Me: I’m glad she’s gone though. I was not a big fan of that actress.
Dad: There was a paper company in Jersey that was a Mafia front.
Me: Oh really?
Dad: Well you keep asking me how I know so much Mafia stuff.
Dad: Russ and I used to give riding lessons to the mobsters’ kids. I charged them 20 bucks an hour to ride.
Me: And slowly the pieces start to fall into place.
