Seriously, I can’t believe we are back where this season started! The practice could be in jeopardy, and Addison still has to choose a man.
Last week Pete had a patient on life support who didn’t want to live that way. The man’s partner affirmed that he didn’t want to live on machines when it came to it. However the partner had no say, the man’s father did. The man’s father hadn’t been in the guys life for years because he didn’t approve of his “lifestyle,” but would not let his son be taken off life support. Pete went with the wishes of the man and his partner, and was arrested for murder. He further complicated things by not complying with the law, getting his bail denied and thrown into jail. Violet was furious. She felt he was self-sabotaging, that he wasn’t thinking about them or their family. By the end of the show Pete was out on bail for cooperating, but realized he could go back for a long time. He screwed up . . .
Meanwhile Charlotte and the others found out what Amelia was planning to do, donate her babies organs. Charlotte had to talk to the legal team, as she was pretty sure this would be considered murder. Sheldon and Sam were also against it. The other half of the practice wanted to support Amelia’s decision. The hospital legal team basically told Charlotte no. There is a debate in medical science as to what is considered living because Amelia’s baby has a partial brain stem rather than no brain and brain stem at all. Amelia however said her baby would still die shortly after being born; and that it would never think, feel, laugh, cry, or love.
In the end everyone came around to support Amelia and what she kept calling her unicorn baby. Charlotte agreed to let the surgery be done, damn the lawyers. Addison explained to them all why she kept calling it a unicorn baby. She said when Amelia was twelve, all she wanted was a unicorn, because they could go around and do magic. So this baby, was her unicorn, because it was going to save a lot of lives around the country. However just like Pete . . . there could be huge ramifications come next season for what was done!
Finally Addison seemingly chose Jake in this episode, telling Sam he was just too late. Addison and Jake made love, at the hospital of course. They made plans for him to come to her place later with Chinese food. However when Addison arrived home, she found Sam with Henry. He sent her baby sitter home because after all that happened, he wanted to see Henry. He told Addison he may have had reservations, but know he knows what he wants and he will fight for it. Sam said he wants her and Henry. Sam got down on one knee and proposed. Then we see a shot of Jake driving over with Chinese and flowers. The final scene was Addison at her psychiatrist’s office smiling. The show opened with her telling him that she didn’t think she needed him anymore as she is happy and has everything she wants.
Noooooooo! Whyyyyyyyy! Why can’t this show just let Sam and Addison be done and over with?
