Kudos to the writers! I just loove this episode.everything just fell into place.giving violet time to heal without jeopardizing the baby, pete letting go of his bitterness and being with addie...Yay! naomi realizing her mistakes and moving on as well, cooper and charlotte getting back together....everything just felt right.now, just give sam an appropriate partner and finally put a stop to his attraction with addie so she won't be eternally made out to be a husband stealer( it's hard to like a lead character when she's always made out to be a horrible person) and everything will be just perfect.they can concentrate on medical drama instead.
This episode was phenomonal. Every time there's a case on this show, or Grey's, or any show, it's easy to sympathise and take a side, whether it's the patient or the doctor. In most cases, there is a certain emotion the writer wants the viewer to have, and it usually sticks true to that. The beauty and brilliance of this episode is that I never once could choose a side. Both parts were equally as compelling. When Addison gave her testmony, I couldn't be more on her side. But when Violet broke down in the office in new york and again when she gave her testimony, i couldnt be more on her side. The mixed emotions about the case, and Lucas, and the relationships and who should have custody and who shouldn't...well, it all makes for excellent television. Kudos on this episode.
Addie's speech was beautiful and I am not saying that she didn't mean all that, but... well Violet did things that made her look like the worst person on earth (she thought herself she was poison and she had helped Katie to cut the baby off her because she was a bad person and didn't car for her child) just to protect her baby. I mean, Addison's speech applies also to Violet!
I loved the episode. I always be on Violet team, but I think that the decision was reasonable. She can keep on getting better, she can keep on loving Lucas, she can keep on trying to be there for him, and finally, she can keep on fighting for his custody.
Greetings from Spain :-)
I hated that Violet lost the the case. That she was punished for finally doing what they all wanted her to do in the first place. She went through a traumatic experience and she had not dealt with it. The best for her son was to be with the father. She did not abandon her baby, she gave him to his father. She is now in a better place to reclaim her place in her son's life and for her so called friends to have said what they did was just wrong. Addison does not deserve to have Lucas, she still has feelings for Sam and is with Pete because she does not want to hurt her Noami and because of Lucas; She sees Lucas as her only chance to be a Mom.
as someone in a similar situation as Addison, being the girlfriend on someone with a child by someone else, this quote "I just want Lucas to be happy. So, if that means you tearing me apart and making me look like the most horrible person on Earth, then please go ahead and do it because Lucas is worth it to me" really hit me hard because of how TRUE it is.
beautiful episode. Private Practice has really come back
Does anyone know the song that was played at the end of this episode?? Thanks

To me this episode just made it even more obvious that Addie and Pete don't fit together at all. How creepy was the last scene? It looked like Addison didn't want to let him into the house at first. And only when Pete held Lucas out to her and the baby smiled at her, she let both of them in. Very telling!
Also, I hope Addison realises that Sam would never treat her the way Pete treated Violet in this episode. Even though he hates her (especially the fact that she's with Pete) and had the perfect chance to destroy her life with Pete, he kept his mouth shut and walked away. He's a good guy and Addison deserves a good guy!
Loved this episode and agree - Grey's went down the drain years ago. I don't think Pete hates Violet either; however, I definitely would start to question how much he loves her and whether they could ever be together again. I think Pete, like he said will always love Violet, but there's so much between them now - time can only take away so much. And to try for lucas ain't a good reason enough at all. I do feel like this episode shows that Pete & Addison have a real chance at being together. Just watching Addison fight for Lucas' best interest (I know that there is some criticism towards what she said about Violet but as harsh as the phrase came out, I'd still have hesistations about Violet's ability as a mother), seeing Pete listen to Addison's wake-up call, there's something so natural about those two that I can't help routing for them. I know that there's a belief that Addison is in it more for Lucas than Pete but I disagree. Lucas just happened to be a part of the package and no
Kudos to Addi. She did a great job standing up for Lucus and to Pete. She cares a lot about people and her friends. I love the part when she spoke to the lawyer, letting her know this case is not about her and it is what's best for Lucus. I know addi misses her bf Naiomi and she wish if things could be back together. I just want to see them happy again. Amelia stood up to Pete. He had no right to order her out of Addi's house. Good job Amelia. Addison knew it was Pete who gave the lawyer info about Violet. Good for her to stand up for herself.
Addison, I think she cares about peoples feeling and is a good person. Would I want to see her with Pete or Sam I do not know but what I want is for her to be a part of Lucus life.
This show is so much better than Grey's. Greys is too immature and her ex is a jerk.
P.S. Just want to say when Addi was on Grey's it was good and so much fun to watch. I watch a couple a seasons after and realize how immature the show is. I cann
I actucally cried in this episode which doesnt happen much with me. I though they were the worst to Dell. Poor Dell, they were asking him so much about Heather and Betsy and he wasn't even one of their close friends.
OMG!!! it was soooo sad! i cried so much to this episode, its unbelieveable!
right, i think Pete was being an absolute reject in this episode! whats happened to him!? the whole time he's been "oh, i'm still in love with violet" etc, and the moment she told him she was thinking about moving to new york, he didn't even wait to find out what stopped her before deciding he hated her. I love the fact that violet told sam that she was still in love with pete XD soooo excited, something good has to come out of this in the end doesn't it?! if not, i'll be sooo disappointed! and at the end when addison told violet that pete didn't hate her, i think she was hinting at the fact he still loved violet but didn't want to admit it. and i can't believe that after everything, he still took lucas back to addison.
I lost all "nice-ness" towards addison when she said that violet was an unfit mother. nobody had even bothered to ask violet about what happened, and how she believed she was better. they
@lea Violet said it, herself, that she had only told two people about her abortions, and they were Addie and Naomi. It's clear that Addie didn't tell the lawyer, but she clearly told Pete about it at some point, and Pete decided to use that fact to his advantage in the trial.
This episode ended up surprising me, because I was so certain that after seeing Addie in the promo up on the stand calling Violet an unfit mother, that I would never be able to respect her ever again. I still find Addie's comment harsh and unfair as Violet has not been given a chance to show herself as neither a good mother or a bad mother, but by the end of the episode I found my respect for her still intact. I really loved her giving Pete a reality check.
Pete was a jerk for most of it. He dealt some pretty low blows, and not just towards Violet, though she got the most of them. His end speech was good, but I feel he needs to make a couple more gestures before he's completely back into my good graces. I ha
can someone help me understand this episode? why was it completely out of order? and WHO told about violet's abortions?
