Private Practice: New Depth, New Bombshells

by at . Comments

With no Private Practice airing this week, let's take a look back at last week's episode, courtesy of this Entertainment Weekly commentary ...

Private Practice got deeper with "In Which Charlotte Goes Down the Rabbit Hole." Charlotte opened up about her alcoholic mom, who didn't touch her while she was growing up. Dell offhandedly mentioned that he'd been abused when he was growing up. A patient named Angie asks Naomi and Addison to tell her husband he's unable to father a child - even though he can.

The Marrying Kind

Addison, Cooper, and Dell emerged as the wise ones.

Fending off Pete Wilder, Addison resolved to hold out for true love, lasting love, marriage, and children. And her advice to Angie — "live your whole life" — resonated enough to make the patient tell her husband the truth.

Coop, meanwhile, figured out that a young patient was being abused by her MS-suffering mother. But Dell evidently knew all along — which makes you wonder why he never said anything before.

Then again, he's, like, a receptionist. The receptionist who does nothing to hide his huge crush on the woman who owns the place, but nevertheless.

Even the music that seems to hamper every ABC drama (you listening, Brothers and Sisters?), turning any serious moment into a lighthearted romp, seemed to be somewhat under wraps. But they let loose with some bombshells just the same. They do love their bombshells on Private Practice!

Private Practice Quotes

You ever been violated? Anybody rape you lately? Let me tell you what its like. You know those made for TV movies where some woman's crouched down naked in a shower holding her knees and sobbing because when she closes her eyes she can still feel the guys hands on her? How when they show the attack the woman's eyes go all blank and still and she goes to some other place in her mind just to deal with the horror of what's happening to her while some Lillith Fair song plays. It is nothing like that. He's sturdy and sweaty and he licks your face and wipes himself off in your hair and when you try to scream he punches you so hard you see God. And then he goes at you again reaping stuff you didn't even know you had because he enjoyed it so much the first time. I know you're trying to help but if helping me means that everyone is gonna be looking at me the way you're looking at me now please do not help me.

Charlotte

You tomato-ed me back. I like that.
