Seriously, I know this show loves to push the envelope, but sometimes it’s just too much and makes me feel dirty for watching! Case in point, this episode!
Most of the episode was about Pete’s Balinese inspired funeral, which is what he wanted. He wanted to be cremated, to be spread in the ocean, and for everyone to laugh and sing and be happy. However Violet was angry, she was pissed, she was mad! She didn’t want to be putting on a happy face, she just wanted to be pissed that her husband was dead and that he wanted this happy crappy funeral. It didn’t help that all of Pete’s patients showed up to tell her how great Pete was, when she was simply furious at him for so many things.
Meanwhile Sheldon was late to the party thanks to a patient that showed up planning to end his life. As the show went on we learned his shameful secret, he’s a pedophile. He hasn’t acted on his urges, but basically can only get off by thinking about small children. Sheldon wanted to help him, there were drugs and things they could do. However he had already arrived downing a bottle of pills. Sheldon called the paramedics, and the guy was saved. Sheldon however wondered if he had done the right thing, it may have been better to let this guy die . . . . Oh this show and their envelope pushing! This whole story was just . . .. bad! Oh and if you couldn’t figure out who the patient was, it was Jane’s new angel Luke from “Drop Dead Diva.” That made it all the more easier for me to not feel his pain at all! As if I liked anything about the story. I hated this story for a lot of reasons, but I don’t want to get over political on here Needless to say, I felt they were giving fodder to certain “slippery slope” arguments out there.
Back at the party, Violet and a stressed out Cooper ended up smoking some of Pete’s old pot to get high. Addison said it had a bad reaction, but she supported them. Of course strict Sam wouldn’t even partake, and Jake also declined. Frankly I was laughing my ass off at these two. I loved when Sam got on his high horse and said this was illegal, so Pete and Violet prescribed each other medical marijuana! Then they got the munchies and Addison ordered them 4 pizzas. Really 4 pizzas? I was just laughing at this whole segment, which was needed after the icky child molesting issues.
By the end of the show Addison got the news about Mark’s death, and broke down. Violet was pissed as there was supposed to be no crying, then she decided Pete’s funeral was just stupid and broke down herself. She eventually poured out his ashes, and a variety of baby issues got resolved. Addison asked Amelia to be Henry’s godmother, while Cooper and Charlotte agreed to take Violet and Pete’s kid should something happen to her. Oh and the triplet secret is out too.
We all know this is Kate Walsh’s final season, unless she has a huge change of heart. I feel like they are already working towards her departure with all her Sam and Jake issues.
