I'm Still Not Over ... The ending of 'Las Vegas'
In last scene of Las Vegas‘ fifth season finale, Danny (Josh Duhamel), Delinda (Molly Simms) and co. mourned the death of the Montecito’s owner A.J. Cooper (Tom Selleck). But, in a shocking twist appropriate for a season-ender, Cooper walked into his own memorial service, revealing to everyone that he survived the plane crash. The pregnant Delinda, yes that’s really her name, then starts bleeding — possibly from the shock of seeing Cooper alive, more likely because whatever was wrong with her pregnancy just happened to manifest itself at that exact moment. And that’s the end of the season.
Unfortunately, it also turned out to be the end of the series, too. And we never found out what happened to Delinda, Danny and their in-danger baby. Months after the show aired — and before it was officially canceled — a source told TV Guide that if Las Vegas failed to receive a sixth season pickup, Duhamel and Simms would appear in the background of the then-new NBC series Knight Rider, holding their newborn. Well, that did not happen, meaning no closure for us. (One could argue that the intention to have them show up on Knight Rider is closure enough. One could also argue that the road to hell is paved with good intentions.)
Oh well, at least there’s always FanFiction. Unless someone wants to start a Kickstarter campaign?
