So what to say about this week’s “Private Practice?” I think the most important thing is that we learned Amelia is keeping the baby and delivering it so that it can be an organ donor for others. Now I feel even worse for her! Especially after she felt the baby kick in this episode, got excited, but then came down to earth. She knew what was going on, she shouldn’t get excited, she’s a neurosurgeon and knew what was happening. Jake was there for her, telling her it was okay, it was natural to react that way. The show ended with her signing all the necessary papers, because she knew she wouldn’t have the strength to do so after the baby was born.
Addison and Pete worked on a case with an illegal trying to have her baby in this country and give him up before she was deported so that the baby had a better life, while Violet and Cooper worked with a young girl who was sure she was really meant to be a boy. Oh and Mason finally began warming back up to Pete, after giving him the cold shoulder for so long.
Sam became Addison’s go-to baby sitter for Henry, and he seems to be warming up to the baby. Oh brother! Why does Shonda Rhimes have such a . . . pardon the expression, hard on for these two? I can’t stand them! Addison needs to move on and so does Sam.
Pete meanwhile ditches therapy sessions with Violet, then at the end of the episode springs huge news on her. Because of the case with the illegal mother, he has remembered his days working in Uganda and other 3rd world countries. Suddenly he’s decided he wants to go back, so he was leaving for awhile . . . Wait . . . What? Isn’t this exactly what he bitched Violet out for doing? Now he wants to do it? Violet begged him to stay, to work on their marriage, to figure things out. Based on next week’s previews it seems he does stay, only to sabotage himself and his career further. I can’t help but think it’s less about his principles and ethics and more about sabotaging himself. Pete is a whole lotta messed up!
The storyline I’m most interested in right now, what the hell is going on with Sheldon, was nowhere to be seen in this episode.
