Private Practice Spoilers: More Flashbacks, Less Dell

at . Comments

With the third season premiere of Private Practice just three weeks away, more details of the much-anticipated, drama-packed episode are coming to light.

Here's a new wrinkle, courtesy of EW: There's a flashback.

The Season 3 premiere "flashes back to Oceanside’s pre-Addison days to show how Pete, Violet and the gang first met." According to reports, the show uses an editing technique to transition between past and present that is both original and effective.

The episode also features a funeral, two harrowing surgeries, and the revelation that we are going to be seeing less of Dell on Private Practice this season.

Chris Lowell’s episode order was reduced from 22 to a minimum of 13, because the hunky young actor wanted more freedom to pursue other projects.

No word on how the show plans on transitioning Chris Lowell out, or at least to the back burner, but try not to be too crushed by this news, ladies.

Private Practice Quotes

Charlotte: My mom always says God doesn't give with both hands. You're young, beautiful, brilliant. There has to be something you can't have.
Amelia: Some days I'd give that all up.
Charlotte: That's just the craving talking. The longer you go without a drink...
Amelia: I drank at your wedding. I thought it was ginger ale. I spit it out.
Charlotte: OK, since then?
Amelia: Nothing, but I can't stop thinking about it.
Charlotte: It was an accident. Don't let a slip turn into a fall. Get your butt to a meeting.

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.
