Season 2 highlights:
Danny returns safely from his stint in the war, but he is a changed man. He resumes his relationship with Mary but she, as well as the rest of the staff, see the changes in him and beg him to seek counseling. Delinda loses her last nerve when Sam hires out Mystique for a private party for rich morticians, and rightly so. A ring of card counters, much like shown in the movie 21, invade the casino, making the security team hustle.

They open their new topless swimming pool and poor Mary is assigned duties of orientation, when she can chase away the over zealous security hounds. The Montecito girls [Sam, Nessa, Mary, & Delinda] purchase a home and then begin the horrendous search for the perfect tenant. When a $1 million dollar wedding is scheduled, it seems everything is going fine until the truckload of lobsters is stolen and Sam goes on the hunt for replacements. Mary has scheduled entertainment for the wedding but he is interested in doing everything but sing, much to her dismay.

The wife of an ex-Marine buddy of Danny’s shows up with her baby, asking Danny to watch it while she goes on a job interview, then doesn’t return. Danny, in the meantime, learns what a chick magnet a little baby can be. Sam hosts the extreme whale that wants to spend all of his fortune so his wife can’t get it in the divorce settlement while the three others girls go for a treasure hunt in the desert and have to be rescued when they become stranded. Nessa gets news her father may still be alive, a strange video gaming convention overtakes the hotel, and it is time for the Casino Youth League Championship in football.

The owner of the Montecito makes an unusual appearance with every stranger news; plans are in the making to sell the casino/hotel and the staff is worried about the proposed changes. The team from Crossing Jordan joins forces with the security staff to solve a murder, Ed crosses paths with his former partner from the CIA, and the boys find themselves in the middle of a lovers spat when they go to the house owned by the girls.

Sam learns one of her whales is laundering money through the casino and gets embroiled with a drug cartel. Ed is kidnapped and held hostage, Danny is accused of sexual harassment of a guest, Ed pulls a role reversal and has everyone change jobs for a week. Sam is all ga-ga about landed the whale of all whales, a billionaire, only to discover it is her estranged husband. Ed must call upon a shady character to stop an extortion attempt,
Mary deals with a secret admirer, and things start to heat up as the bids start flying to purchase the casino/hotel with rumors of big changes to come.

As you can see, things haven’t calmed down a bit in Vegas. They only heat up.
