Private Practice > Private Practice Review: There Was Blood... Everywhere > Comments Page 2
I notice that you give Violet a hard time, and sometimes its rightly deserved, but just ignore Pete's problems.
Violet might be annoying and clingy, but I find Pete to be too aloof to be a good husband. Last week, he just walked away after basically telling his wife he's sleeping with other women. No checking to make sure she's really fine and not putting on an act. He was so blaise about the whole thing.
This week, after putting up minimum effort to change Violet's mind, he took Lucas and left. Didn't look back until it was too late.
What husband who loves his wife would actually leave her alone in the house? Yes she made the decision and he didn't agree with it, but that does mean he can't stay with her to make sure everything goes alright. If my love one was in danger and wouldn't change their mind, you bet I would have temporarily moved back in.
He could have left Lucas with Cooper and Charlotte for the weekend.
I think Joanna told him where to find her and set it up to look like self defense. She is a bright lawyer after all.
It also felt like there was some softening from Pete toward Violet for the first time since the heart attack...are they heading back together? If there's anything left it'll show when Pete knows "Hot Scott" is in the picture.
Love Addie and Jake. I think Sam was heading toward trying to make up with Addie. Glad that got interrupted!
@candee2320 - Butcher knife? I don't know how I missed that, but it looks like I may need to rewatch this episode again.
@Bill - Pete and Violet may be separated at the moment, but she is technically still his wife. They may not be getting along, but she's still the mother of his child. I highly doubt he'd want her dead. Also, "Hot Scott" doesn't even know much about her at all.
@Lori - I think you're on to something. I actually had the same thoughts thinking that there was just something very wrong about Joanna. I also got the vibe that she could have hurt herself to set up David. Maybe this chapter is ending, and Joanna will be back later.
@carls - You're welcome! The numbers didn't look too great for last night's episode, but I'm with you and am hoping PP gets renewed as well.
Before I talk about all the other stuff, I have to say Amelia offering to be Addie's surrogate and Addie turning her down was the most or one of the most selfless moments ever on this show IMO. It was a sweet and selfless moment for both of them.
Good for Addison realizing she needed to take a break from all the baby stuff for a bit. After all the IVF failure, adoption failure, surrogate, breaking up with Sam, she probably just needs to take some time to regroup. Besides, when one stops trying for a baby, is usually when it happens. Even if she can't get pregnant, the adoption agency still has all her info.
Also, I am warming up to Addison and Jake with every episode.
Does anyone watch The Firm?
Sorry, but Addison is an idiot! Total brainwashed idiot. Sam's biggest flaw is that he doesn't realize how great he is? Really? Are you kidding me? That was like the most stupid thing i've heard in this show since it started. She is just typical example of a woman who is dependent on men, and when she isn't with a man, she at least has to idolize him! Yuck, i despise women like that.
Could someone PLEASE tell me what Amelia said to (or about) Sheldon when he and Sam were making those profiles??? Pleeeeease...
Violet is still a wife? Seriously? She may be on paper, but that's where it stops. I doubt her boy toy paramedic thinks of her much as a married woman.
I have always found it amazing how fast these characters jump from one bed to another. They're like rabbits, these people. And that goes for Violet's "husband," Pete, too. Within days of separating from his wife he was bonking some girl in an elevator that he had picked up (or she picked him up) in a bar. I like this show, but the sexual frenzy that's always swirling around that office is almost comical.
Now we have Addison about to do Jake. She is not exactly the best example of that old saying, "don't get your money and your honey from the same place." Don't think she's done Sheldon or Cooper yet, but I'm not sure. If she hasn't, they are probably feeling kind of depressed. They are likely asking themselves, "What's wrong me, if even Addison isn't trying to get me into bed?" Got to be a real blow to their egos.
I wonder what kind of doctor Violet really is, she read Joanna totally wrong and her gut feelings were way off too. I understand how Erica came to the conclusion she did, I am not sure if I had 6 months to live and chemo would maybe give me 6 months more if I would go for the chemo either. Sam and Sheldon were funny with the on-line dating thing. I am tired of Addie and her wanting a baby thing and I am glad she is giving it a rest. I feel bad for Amelia and hope she finds love again.I love Charlotte and Cooper together, they seem grounded now.
I loved the humor that the Sam and Sheldon scenes brought to the episode.
I appreciated Amelia offering Addison to be her surrogate cause I thought that was such a sincere gesture.
I definitely loved the Addison and Jake scenes. I really like how Jake is so determined to help Addison get what she wants. I just feel empathy and compassion radiating from this character. Plus, seeing them on the deck together at the end was great.
Charlotte and Cooper probably had less than two minutes of screen time together but I thought they were great. Seeing Charlotte be there for Cooper that way was just so endearing.
And as for Violet's case with Joanna - that was pretty crazy. Seeing Joanna stab David repeatedly shocked me. I know Violet can get too involved with her patients but I felt like this was different. You sort of felt that connection when they first met so I kind of it more as Violet protecting an acquaintance rather than being overly involved in a patient's life.
I am beginning to think the killing of David might have been some how not spontanious...who brings a huge butcher knife on a breakfast tray. That was my first clue David was going to show up. I think Violet figured David would come looking for his wife at her house or at the very least information. Violet getting Lucas out of the house another clue....
I really love Addie and Jake's natural chemistry.
But it is the Charlotte and Cooper relationship I love. They are allowed to be weak, mad, horny and human...and they are there for each other.
@Laura, of course Mason has a mother (although seems like not for long). What I meant was that Charlotte has been great with him and has developed some motherly feelings IMO
For me all this Mason/Erika SL are so predictable and boring..For the record @Marin..that kid has a mom already..Charlotte will never be Mason's mom..He knows who is his mom!
Violet Annoyance = 7
I'm wondering- how premeditated was the murder? Did you see the exchange in eye-contact between Violet and the mad woman as she was being led out the door by the police. I went to sleep replaying the dialog throughout the episode in my mind. I mean- did she maybe even hurt herself the first time to set him up? I think there's something to this.
I like the actress playing Erica because I loved her on My So Called Life!
Violet's story was very strong. The moment Violet opened her eyes and we could see the knife being stabbed into the body over and over again... real shocker. And I'm glad they tackled this serious issue.
My favorite moments all involved Addison and Jake. And Amelia. It was very touching when Amelia offered to be Addison's surrogate and Addie gently turned her down. And Addison and Jake are the best thing to happen to PP in a long time. Everything about them is so natural and you can see their amazing chemistry in the tiniest actions. My favorite moment was their conversation at Addison's house. I want more of them and soon. They're definitely my favorite "couple" this season - even if they're not a real couple yet.
I'd also liked to note that this season really is my favorite and I hope it does continue to be so. As @Marin said, last season was disappointing, so this is a step up and the step up is good. I hope Shonda and co. keeps up the amazing writing, storylines and development of these characters as I'm really seeing it with every single one of them this season.
Addison and Jake are amazing. Even when they disagree, they manage to me mature about it.
The online dating thing was hilarious. Just thought it was an excuse to underuse Sheldon and Sam though.
In regard to Sheldon, I'm sick of his whining and leaving a room when he sees Amelia. I know he 'loves' her, but it's just immature and the storyline seems to be going nowhere.
Cooper breaking down on Charlotte was great. I love these two. If anyone can tug at the heartstrings it's these two.
In my opinion, Violet needed probably a 3.0. I agree that she got in the middle, but she does what she does best - treat patients. As much as I believe that she is growing into a better person, I think her patients will always come first in her life. I knew the stabbing scene was coming as Violet was awakening from her punch in the face. Thankfully, she ran to Scott and not Pete. Sick of him acting like he cares when he doesn't.
I dont like the actress playing Erica and thus I dont really care about her character. But the storyline is good! Now we know why he brought Mason to Cooper after all these years and its amazing to see how Coop has developed into great father (never doubted that he would be) and even more amazing that Charlotte as become a mother! Something that she always said she doesnt want to be!!!
Im really enjoying this season of PPP, last season was disappointing.
The annoying Violet is back! I will give it 7.
This case showed exactly why she can be so annoying. There is no reason to get so overly involved, it does not help them! What help did she get by staying at her place, while puting everybody in Violet´s life in jeopardy. Pete was even more annoying.
I LOVE Addie and Jake together! I wish there was more of their scenes together. I think it is obvious that he really cares about her, but at the same time it is nice that he does not come on too strongly. It was also nice to see that Sam and Addie were able to normally interact. Looking forward to Addie and Jake going to the conference!
And now I feel like a goof. "I believe she cares for her *patients*" is what I meant to say. :)
I find that the VAS is steadily going down. I don't always think that her advice is the best, but the heart she puts into it is admirable. I believe she cares for her patience. And I'm liking the side story with the Hottie Paramedic.
Addy.. I don't know if a baby is what she needs in her life. But, hey, it's part of her on going growth from being emotionally dependent on others to feel like she's happy.
The men bonding and hanging out is enjoyable.
And the Erica story is dramatic and heartbreaking.
Private Practice has turned itself around since last season. I no longer find the episodes boring.
I look forward to new ones.
It was a shocking episode, my VAS 4. I love PP, I hope they renew it. Thanks Christina for your work. Pending the round table.
