Private Practice returns Thursday, January 6 after Grey's Anatomy, and Addison's mother Bizzy finds herself at the center of a major story arc to begin this new year.
In "If You Don't Know Me By Now," Bizzy pleads with Addy to do what it takes to save her partner from dying - even if that means working with Dr. Rodriguez again.
Meanwhile, Amelia and Pete's efforts are complicated when a patient's wife and his mistress disagree on the course of treatment, and C-squared tries to be intimate again.
Here's a promo for the show's 2011 return ...
The following week's episode, "Heaven Can Wait," features Addison planning Bizzy and Susan's wedding while again trying to keep her distance from Dr. Rodriquez.
Sam is concerned about the care a longtime patient is receiving, Sheldon refers Charlotte to a mentor and friend for help, and Violet considers publishing a book.
Sounds like quite a lot on the doctors' plates.
