The when: Fridays, 10 pm/ET, NBC Why watch?: Mike and Piper (James Lesure and Camille Guaty) bond with each other in a way neither could have imagined - or, as it turns out, can remember - in tonight's new episode of

Las Vegas (10 pm/ET, NBC). Dispatched to a shady bar to surreptitiously recruit a hot bartender for the Montecito, the surveillance chief and the comely concierge try to blend in by having a few drinks. And then a few more. "[Mike and Piper] end up getting drunk and don't really remember anything," says series creator and executive producer Gary Scott Thompson. "Then a wedding video turns up and they see what they actually did!" Sounds awkward, to say the least - but how will this inadvertent union affect Piper's relationship with Cooper? "The audience has been dying to know more about those characters," says Thompson. What's next: "[Tonight] starts a string of episodes [in which] we discover more information: If they had a relationship or didn't have one, how they know each other or don't know each other, and exactly what their connection is." - Joseph Hudak What do you say?
