I seem to be one of the few who really enjoyed the Betsey episode. Shonda's aim was to show that they are all selfish in a way. They all have to deal with their own busy lives, so adopting a child? Besides, adoption doesn't happen by waving a magic wound. It's a very hard process, so it's only fair that no one adopted her in the end, even though they thought about it. Especially Violet (I loved her in this episode by the way).
I think Charlotte's storyline will be very interesting to watch. How will she cope with it? How is Cooper going to react? And how are the other characters going to react as well? Only Dell knew that Violet had been raped in college (and Addison probably knows too), so I'm really looking forward to see how it will affect Violet as well. I trust Shonda and her team for dealing with this subject with respect.

This storyline is going to be even more compelling than what happened with Violet in the previous season!! For all those who have grown to love the character of Charlotte, we hope she can handle all this, and that she and Cooper will mature as a couple!

After watching the "Betsy" episode - I am so done with the show.
I couldn't believe it ended like that. What the ...made no sense. I hated all the characters for that and what's the point of watching. If Dell knew what happened; he'd have a heart attack!

All of these comments are dumb. It's a show people. Get a life, a real life.

Here Here.. I never post comments but I was sooo Done with the way the cast turned their back's on Dell's daughter.After he sacrificed his life to save Sam and Naomi's daughter and grandchild. Not to mention they all sat around while his brain was bleeding and let him die... DONE.. Just Done.. Huge fan of both this show and Grey's but that is unforgivable.. I thought the idea of the "Practice" was that they were all family a boutiqe clinic of world renowned specialist.. What a crok they are selfish and self absorbed no one should turn their back on family!

I have to agree with all the others about last week's epi. For all of thos doctors to turn their backs on Dell's daughter was beyond heartbreaking. It made them look very uncaring and selfish. And to say they did it for Betsy's own good is luicrious.

I think Shonda Rimes grossly underestimated the negative reaction from the fans of the show. Maybe she thought it was the most realistic outcome to the situation. I disagree. For not one of the characters to step up and offer to take care of that child instead of letting her basically become a ward of the state was inexcusable. That was not in the child's best interest. It was in their best interests. Unless Rimes was trying to reveal that the main characters on this show are not the caring individuals they seem to be, but are actually a bunch of pathetic, self-centered jerks, the epi's ending makes no sense. Now I really don't care what bad experiences may befall any of them. They have all become very unsympathetic characters. Way to Rimes. You may have deep-sixed your show.

These characters are not redeemable. I wish I could care, but after "A Better Place to Be" I have a lot of better places to be. I hope they pull the well-prepared for rape episode and hold it until after one or all of these characters grows a soul. Shonda Rimes must be losing her touch.

Well, now I'm glad I missed last weeks episode. I can't believe Violet wouldn't take in Dell's daughter. that sucks. I wonder if Nichalos Brandon can actually be any other character than "Xander"
Not sure he can portray a violent rapist. He just doesn't have that mean violent look. even his Criminal Minds character is just another Xander type

I do not understand what the purpose of bringing Betsey onto the show was tonight! Simply to break viewers hearts? The writers have caused a great show to suffer. The actors should have refused this episode -- no one with a heart could turn their back on a friends child the way they did. There is nothing that could make this right again!

I have faithfully watched this show since the pilot -- I won't be watching any more -- there is no justifiable reason to follow this episode with a rape scene next. Just too sad -- I would watch the News or CSI or something if I wanted this much sadness.

I was truly upset with the Betsy story line last night. I’m done! Why bring Betsy back if she wasn’t going to stay? Every character in the practice could afford to take care of her. None of the characters gave a good reason of why Betsy couldn’t stay?
If the characters on the practice could not come together and support an orphan child how can they support a rape victim?
