Private Practice > Private Practice Review: "Eyes Wide Open" > Comments Page 3
This whole Violet mess is meant to really test Addison and Pete. And they probably wont pass with flying colours. Now that Violet is ready to be in Lucas' life (so I assume) Pete will have to choose between the nuclear family that he thought he wanted or this new relationship with piles of baggage that needs to be sorted through. Violet will most likely win this coming round. How else are the writers going to keep Addison tortured and confused? They'll mess with her for a while before Pete finally chooses Violet for "the good of his son". Addison and Sam will experiment being together (come on, they've put so much build-up into that relationship- there's no way the writers are just going to throw it away). Eventually, maybe not right away, they will reunite Addison and Pete. Their relationship has been in the show since the beginning. They trust each other, they are happy together and they have amazing sex. But the being happy is what will make the writers eventually settle Addison dow
I love how it's so easy for us to sit here and judge - to say that Addison is taking the easy way out, that she's not taking a risk, that she's settling.
The truth is: she IS taking a risk and she is making a choice to try and be happy for a change. The musy "in love" thing isn't everything, as much as we'd like to believe it. Addison is willing to accept the fact that Pete isn't completely over Violet, the same way she's not completely over Sam. But they are both trying to move forwards with their lives because they both want to be happy. That takes courage.
They are taking a risk with each other because at the end of the day - take Sam and Violet completely out of the picture - they could still not work out. These are two people who love and care about each other, who care about each other's happiness, and want to be happy themselves. It makes sense for them (at least, in my mind) for them to take a chance with each other because they do have the possibility of being happy wi
They're right - there's no reason for us to be afraid of Violet coming back to "tear" Addison and Pete apart because let's be honest, it's the writers that do it :) lol.
That being said, I do see Pete now, questioning whether or not he wants to get together with Violet again - whether or not we take addison into account. He may still love Violet but I think he'll struggle with the way she walked out on everything, and that even if they did get back together, it would be a thorn stuck in their relationship for the long run.
I'm surprised to see that some people find Addison and Pete "forced". They seem so natural with each other - as friends, as people who truly care about each other, as lovers who may not be in that deep romantic love but they still love each other.
While Pete and Violet are the ones "in love", they are the ones that seem forced (haha, at least imo). Violet has so many issues on her own. They bonded initially because of Violet's knowledge of Pete's past - which she knew about as his therapist. And the layers of how they started to "heal" each other are full of shards of glass, so much that take out psycho baby stealing lady, they would still have so many issues that could have torn them apart. I don't know. Addison aside, I just don't seem them as people together.
I am totally for Pete and Violet coming back together. I think that is the only thing that makes sense with the characters, just as they are:
Pete has always been a "gigolo", which couldn't develope bonds with any woman (two of them left the Practice, for example, he was married but didn't love his wife, he wanted Addison in the first season just for sexual reasons -which is fine too but it isn't the same thing. As he started something with Violet, he realized he could love again, he had feelings, deep feelings for someone, he wanted to start a family and so on... A man who hasn't lived love many times in life just can't be with a woman (Addie) just because it is easier. He wouldn't be honest with himself. And I really think he deserves, finally, to be happy (Have we seen him really happy in the series? Just a couple of minutes...).
As for Violet... OK, she is a mess. Has always been. I think Violet is the deepest character in the whole series. She has a lot of emotional issues to s
I adore Addison, with all my heart. It kills me she just can't be happy. Every single person either of the shows have teamed her with the other guy loves someone else more: Derek, Mark, and now Pete. Clearly Violet came for Pete but changed the direction of her whimsical visit to Lucas. Everyone needs to stop berating Addison and Pete's decisions to be together. They are doing the adult thing and moving on to other options when in real life it wouldn't have worked out. I doubt any of you would actually try and play the "but we're in love card" with your best friend either.
I just really want Addison to be happy. I want her with Sam, but at what cost. I want more Addison/Vanessa drama first though, they bounce off of each other so well. The competitiveness of their professional lives has become so personal.
Definately enjoyed Amelia, hopefully she'll be around for a little bit. Definately one of the best episodes this season. Very racey!
You know what's really sad? And kind of funny? This whole time, Addison has been competing against Violet...and Violet hasn't even been there. Imagine how it's going to be now that Violet is back. Whoo hoooo! Finally, all of us Violet and Pete fans may finally get that payoff we've been waiting for!
Plus, in the rare case that Violet's presence weren't enough, the second she starts dating someone else, Pete will flip. I think Addison is about to be very crushed. Which will be painful to see, but she should have seen it coming.
Love Violet and Pete!
Violet and Pete are the only reason I watch Private Practice.
Pete and Violet!!!!!
I love the way he looks at Violet. He loves her so much. Violet has Pete's heart, you can tell. Well, not to mention he's said how much he loves Violet. But they're so good together. I love watching them. Glad to see them in scenes together again. Also glad that she wants to be in her son's life again. Oh well for Addison...true story, she should have picked Sam. She could have been happy. Why would she pick someone who is hopelessly in love with another woman? Oh yeah, to fill that void of motherhood. Ridiculous.
Pete and Violet better be together before season three ends. I do not want to wait for it in season four!
I was so happy to see Violet come back! She is ready to be a mom, finally! Hopefully she's ready to be with Pete too. That is long over due. Pete and Violet are so good together. Addison is about to be crushed. But I have to say, I don't feel bad for her. She knew it would happen eventually. I mean really? What was she thinking? That she would be Lucas's new mom? Right...she'll never be his mom. Violet is! So yay for Vi coming back! Now I just hope she and Pete will be back together before the season ends.
Addison is screwed. Pete loves Violet, always has. He has told that to Addison dozens of times. Seriously, my God, this Pete/Addison thing is pathetic and kind of annoying. It's totally forced, and I agree, painful to watch. Thankfully Violet is back! she and Pete need to be together. And they will be. Plus, they are Lucas's parents. Major bond. They're a family, soon to reunite. Addison should have picked Sam.
I'm getting tired of the many Violet is gonna (try to) destroy P/A comments. If P/A were meant to be, it wouldn't matter what Vi said or did. I don't think they are meant to be, I think little Shep was right in the fact that P/A are settling for each other.
I don't think P/A are doing the adult thing here. Addie is using Lucas as one of the reasons she should stay with Pete, she said as much to Amelia. She decided to play mommy to a child that isn't hers despite believing Pete loves Violet more than her. The adult decision would be to separate the family life from the relationship, find out if the relationship is going anywhere serious before getting involved with the kid beyond the level a friend of the family would. They didn't do that.
Addie took an active motherly role for Lucas, you can see that with how she's the one running off to meet the nanny (even though her bringing him with her to the hospital is more disruptive than Pete bringing him to the office where he's
One more explanation. She hasn't destroyed the thing betweend P/A yet, but I'm afraid that will happen.
I totally agree with whatever, it's an adult thing and I think it's good that they're trying to be happy.
I've watched this episode twice and I realized that I missjudged Pete's behavior - I thought he was happy that Violet came back, but now I know that he was shocked and mad at her because she kind of destroyed the thing between Pete and Addison.
thankkk youu misskitten(:
Loved the episode! They should deff continue with the way the last two episodes have been! They finally manage to combine the love drama with some funny moments! As much as I hated Sheldon, he's actually becoming quite cool...although Charlotte should still end up with Cooper. ASAP.
As for the Addison/Pete/Violet/Sam drama...Addison has right about it. It's an adult thing. If it cannot work with a guy, why would you stick to it instead of trying to be happy with someone else? And the way Pete looked in the end, I'm pretty sure he feels the same. Honestly..the things Violet has done so far are way out of line if you love someone. She did nothing good for Pete and she comes back and expects him waiting for her? Worst shrink ever if she thinks it can actually work. I'm rooting for Addison and Pete, not because there's awesome chemistry there or whatever...because if they choose each other that it's actually close to what'd happen in real life. And frankly...the show needs some reality. L
The ending song was "Follow Me Back Into The Sun" by The Rescues. I agree about the song, it was fantastic.
I will tune back in when I see they reunite Pete and Violet. They are my reason to watch.
I love them. They have this magnetism and draw between them when they come together.
I can't stand Pete and Addison. They freaking bore me to death, and make me turn the channel.
does anyone know the ending song on private practicee as i realllyy likeddd itt? and all the way forr petee and addison theyy r adorable together violett better n ot mess it up but i think shee will its gonna be greatt. loved this episodeee thoughhh
Does anyone know when the next episode airs??? I couldn't find a preview online, and I didn't think this was the finale.
This is a vast improvement of the last episodes.
I was all for Pete/Addison but now, I'm not so sure. I'd love if this had happened pre-Violet and pre-baby. I dislike Violet in all ways but now that she's back and wants to get involved in her son's life, this yells heartbreak for Addie. Sad face.
Thank God Vanessa is done. Talk about timing. Sam and Addison is so happening!
I actually enjoyed Cooper tonight. But he needs to tell Charlotte what he told 'really old guy'.
More Sheldon please! I love him! Maybe Violet can go to the sad people practice (Naomi, Pete, Fife...) and let Sheldon stay in Oceanside Wellness.
I'm torn on Little Shep. I'm happy that she called Addie on everything and that she is a person that Addie can talk to but does Derek have a sister that actually likes him? Everyone seems to be on Team Addison. I lost respect for her when she hid the affair for Addie. Not cool.
Also, what did this meant? Mark and Addie started their affair before the ONS whe
I'm so relieved Violet is back. I can only hope she gets some screen time away from Addison. I'm ready to see Pete and Violet deal together on the fall out from the violent crime and Violet's choices on how to deal with it afterward. I can't wait to see her bond with her kid.
On the other hand, Addison has gotten so desperate and pathetic. She can't not have feelings for a man, preferably 2 at the same time. She needs to see Meredith's therapist. Her feelings for Sam are just stupid given the history and her so-called friendship with Naomi; her settling for Pete just to have his kid and distract herself from Sam is just sad. Just before it was a married man, a man married to one of her patients. Keep going back all the way to Mark, her husband's best friend, and she can't stop herself from picking inappropriate men. It's gotten so bad she's fishing from the same pond again.
Charlotte and Cooper are entertaining. Sidney and Fife are a breath of fresh air.
I adored little Shep, especially how she called Addie on her crap. Addie is settling, and it was time someone told her. Addie should fight to be happy and the only reason she is trying with Pete is that it's easier than going for something with Sam (though now that Violet's back I don't think she will view it as simple anymore, because no matter how little Violet says, Addie will know that even if Pete chooses to stay with her, there will be a part of him that longs for Violet), plus she gets to play mommy for Lucas (but now his actual mom is back and ready to be a parent). To be honest, though I think Addie and Sam would make a cute couple (and I think eventually Naomi will find a way to be okay with it), it won't bother me if they don't make it, because I think Addie's happiness will lie in getting her OWN kid (whether it's a biological miracle or her adopting).
Charlotte was just fantastic, as always and I really, really like how good a friend Sheldon is to her, despite her using
I'm now completely TORN!
Pete/Violet. I LOVE them. But... there's just something in the back of my brain screaming at me, "ADDISON AND PETE!" -.- I hate you weird voice in my head.
Pete/Addison. They had chemistry. HAD. But... all I want is Addison to be happy! She can't have babies, her love life is so screwed up (two guys tell her that they are in love with another girl) and she can't seem to find any happiness! With Pete, she's happy. Or at least, happy enough. Pete loves her but not as much as he loved Violet. Loves, Violet.
Addison/Sam. They have a friendship. They have an amazing friendship. They fell in love with each other. When with Sam, Addison is happy, too. She wants to be with Sam but... she can't do that because of her best friend. It's not right to do that. She CAN have happiness with Sam but she's not allowed to.
I hope this resolves soon cause the darn voice in my head is screaming at me again. :P
yayyyyyy so happy Amy B is back, she rocks!!! The last scene was pretty intense and painful but I love it, every single second of it! Can't wait to see Violet full back next week!
Sadly Pete/Addison never work for me, I mean in first season it was all right but now, I don't like the fact that they just seemed to be together because they can't have the one they really want!
I really hope that in time Violet Pete and Lucas could be an happy family!
