Private Practice kicked off its third season last night with a typical Shonda Rhimes made-for-fake-spoilers moment: A somber Pete standing over a coffin being buried.
Oh, but it was just a flashback to when Pete's wife died. Shonda is lame. But said flashbacks did tell the back story of Pete and Violet and made for a strong episode.
Private Practice picked up where we left off last season, with Violet's baby having been stolen, and her bleeding on the floor. Sick. She was discovered shortly after.
Did she live? Yes. We knew that going in. But how she got there and the back stories told made for a wild ride. Follow the link for a recap of "A Death in the Family."
Here are some the top Private Practice quotes from the emotional episode ...
