Private Practice star Tim Daly gives a good interview.
We saw that earlier. Now he's dishing on some spoilers - some of the things we can expect going forward - in a brief Q&A with E! Online ...
E!: What can we expect from Pete's renewed relationship with Jayne Brook's character, Meg?
Tim Daly: We can expect sex. We can expect conflict. I think we can expect to learn maybe that Pete - whether he's conscious of it or not - may be ready to have something a little more significant than the flings he's had in the past.
E!: Will we see more of Pete and Addy's plan to be "old friends"?
Tim Daly: You know, not to sound like I'm critical of the show, but I just don't believe that! First of all, when have Pete and Addison (Kate Walsh) been friends? All we did was make out and then ignore each other. I want to see this friendship. I haven't seen this friendship. I don't believe that they're friends. I also think they're harboring something deep down that's a lot more than buddies, so I'm just waiting for it to emerge. This friend stuff? That I'm not so sure about.
E!: Pete has this hidden past in Western medicine! What does that mean for his future?Tim Daly: It became clear to me in our first season that it's very hard to write things that are really intensely dramatic for a guy that does acupuncture. "Yeah, just relax for 20 minutes and I'll be right back." I think reinforcing Pete's expertise in Western medicine gives the writers the option to put Pete in stories where there are things that are more life-and-death, moment-to-moment.
E!: Is there anything else we should know about Private Practice this year?
Tim Daly: One of my favorite things of this season is a very interesting romantic liaison develops between Pete and another regular character on the show. I won't say who it is, but it's really surprising and awesome.
E!: Shut up. Seriously? Is it Violet?
Tim Daly: It could Violet, it could Naomi (Audra McDonald)... Charlotte is with Cooper (Paul Adelstein) for now, but it could be Charlotte, it could be Sam (Diggs).
