In a bit of a confusing programming move, but a good one for Private Practice fans, the show features an all-new episode this week entitled "Second Choices."
Grey's Anatomy, however, is off until next week.
This was done by ABC to end Private Practice's third season a week early (May 13), clearing the way for a two-hour Grey's Anatomy sixth season finale May 20.
In any event, the doctors of Oceanside/Pacific are back this week, and "Second Choices" promises a whole host of interesting developments for the characters.
Violet returns from Costa Rica to find people treading lightly around her and lots of mixed feelings when it comes to her desire to start reconnecting with Lucas.
Amelia butts into Sam's life, noting that he can mend hearts in the OR but not his own (deep), while Sheldon encourages Charlotte to reconcile with Cooper.
Here's a sneak preview of the episode ...
