The Crossover of the Week may not seem like such a big deal at first. It was shabbily written, badly acted, and poorly directed. But in its own way it represented a big achievement - a character from prime time was appearing in a daytime soap opera.

Mary Connell, a hostess with the mostest at the Montecito Hotel and Casino, was at a private party in the Capistrano Casino when she espied Ned at the roulette table. Quickly she called her erstwhile boyfriend Danny and warned him that the guy he found suspicious was now at another casino.

But after a few moments of observation, Mary called Danny back and said that the guy seemed okay.

Of course, there was no way for her to know that Ned had stolen his invite to that private party.

And that was it. At least until later this afternoon when Mary Connell appears one last time on 'Passions'. (I have no idea if this will ever be referred to in any future episode of 'Las Vegas', however.)

If I'm stuck, I may call on today's crossover to be the highlight for next week... even it it is as dismal as this one turned out to be.
