  • Great episode.

    I'm really liking this storyline with the pregnant patient in a coma. The ending was surprising and made me look forward to the next one. Charlotte understood this patient which made that storyline all the more enjoyable but I bet she wasn't expecting him to pull the plug like that...but then she's breathing? Can't wait to see how that goes.



    I actually like Naomi and Fife together...but then she goes to Switzerland to talk with William? Not sure about that one. I liked Dell giving birth to that baby...I liked the mother. Now Addison and Pete...I'm kind of liking them. Addison's meltdown about looking after Lucas was really entertaining...wonder what she'll do after he said 'I love you, Violet'.



    Can't wait for the next episode.moreless

    I think Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice and ABC should have spoken to each other about not scheduling these episodes together on the same night. We had a great story about a woman who was terminally ill and the husband wanting to put her out of her misery, but it was almost identical to the storyline done on Grey's an hour before. I think that might be why I rated this episode lower (7.2 vs. 7.5) but it really was a solid episode.



    Private Practice recently changed showrunners and hopefully that will result in Addison's love life being repaired. Her scenes have almost become unwatchable and they really need to get that character under control.moreless
