There's a lot going on this week on Private Practice. So much so that we've got SEVEN sneak preview clips of "In the Name of Love" to whet your appetite for tomorrow evening.

Grey's Anatomy's much anticipated two-hour finale takes up its spinoff's Thursday time slot on May 20, so Private Practice is ending its third season a week earlier - next week.

That means tomorrow's Private Practice is the penultimate installment of the third season, and there are plenty of events being set in motion as the dramatic finale looms.

Here's the first clip from "In the Name of Love" ...

Those who use the friend issue with Addison and Sam is a cop-out. When most had no problem rooting for unorthodox Addison and Noah, and that Noah didn't love his wife like he did Addison.
You don't want an African american male with a white female, so just fess up and stop hiding behind the friend issue.


@Aurora: Pete and Addie might have had great chemistry in the first season - which was when they *should* have gotten together if at all - but now, after everything with Violet and Sam and all that, they're just together for comfort. Not love. Which Amelia's words, "settling". Paddison really needs to end - it doesn't feel right anymore! Addie needs a man outside the clinic already. I loved the SWAT guy! Pity they had to break up, sigh.


kim is Sarah hagan played Devo on grey's anatomy in 2005!!


@Me i am trying to figure out who she is too. I believe she played someone on grey's anatomy on an earlier season.


The actress who is playing the girl Sheldon thinks maybe an kidnapped girl looks and sounds very familiar. Is she the same actress who played the CRAZY LADY who cut Lucas out of Violet???


@Aurora: Addison has slept with three men since the beginning of the show! That's the same amount of men Naomi and Violet have slept with also. Violet even slept with two men at the same time. (Talking about Pete and Sheldon, both of whom she was stringing along) and Naomi cheated on William with Fife. Charlotte slept with men she met ON THE INTERNET before she got together with Cooper.
Are all of them whores? I don't think so! About the "dating your friend's ex" - thing I refer back to my earlier post. I don't understand how people just can't think further than that argument... And about Pete and Addison: Even you say that you couldn't resist Lucas. That's exactly why Addison is still with Pete. She's not in love with him and I doubt she ever will be. In my opinion Sam and Addison have amazing chemistry and I think Sam is the first guy she's interested in on both GA and PP, who treats her right. I think she need a man like him and I hope she'll get him.


I won't watch anymore if they pair Addison and Sam... I just think they aren't good together. True, he was her best friend's husband - and that should be reason enough. But also, he's one of Pete's best friends and keeps creeping in on Pete's territory - even kissing Addie while they are still together! Plus, even though I completely love both Addison and Sam, if they get together it really will make Addison look a whore - she's slept with everything that stands still long enough, and we all know she makes stupid sexual decisions. Also, Taye and Kate are clearly the hottest people on the show, so its almost TOO perfect... I just don't like it. I think Addison and Pete are awesome together - and from the first episode they had great chemistry. Plus, Lucas is adorable... could totally not resist that if I were Addie. Though Violet is his mother, so I'm guessing complications.
For some reason though, I think probably what will happen on the finale is Naomi will give Addison and Sam her blessing on her deathbed (since Audra is supposedly leaving the show). It will all be very moving and painful, and we will have to see whether or not Addie actually goes for it (but I'm hoping not). We know Sam's grandchild will be born, and Addie will probably have to step in and save him/her with some heroic surgery. I'm thinking Sheldon and Charlotte might actually have something, and Cooper maybe will get with Violet instead - since Shonda said people are not going to end up with who we might think, and Amy is always saying that what is between Cooper and Violet is complicated, and likely going to get more so. It seems in the previews like they are setting them up for some sort of showdown (tears, kissing, sex, I am guessing) before the end of the season.
But I digress.
My point - I won't watch anymore if Addison and Sam get together. It would be so stupid.


Well, some of the earlier posts said that Addie will be happy at the end of this season and we all know she isn't truly happy with Pete....


Why do people STILL keep using the "your best friends ex is off-limits"-argument with Addie and Sam?
This is NOT a black and white issue, though those who use this argument certainly seem to think so. You have to evaluate every situation individually before passing judgment. It's like the father killing his daughter's rapist. It's not white, but it's not totally black either!
Addie and Sam have been friends for about as long as Addie and Naomi. Addie already stepped back when Sam asked her out in med school and now she's putting Naomi first AGAIN.
She'll only get together with Sam, if Nae gives them her blessing. How does this make her a whore?!


Addison and Pete need to stay together. Sam and Addie just don't match. Plus, I agree, just makes her the Whore again. Sleeping with best friends or best friends ex-husbands.

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.

Having a conscience is brutal.
