Private Practice Season Finale Scoop: Oh, Baby

by at . Comments

Three episodes remain in this season of Private Practice, but - fans of this series sincerely hope - not in the drama as a whole.

While ABC is yet to decide the fate of this bubble show, the most recent ratings are encouraging, as is the fact that it's leading our poll of ABC shows readers most want to see saved.

What can viewers expect from the final trio of installments? Among other developments teased by the network: a gender identity disorder case; a birth; and a major decision by Addison.

Check out the official promo for Tuesday's episode now and then read through the official ABC descriptions for what's ahead:

May 1: "True Colors"
Addison, Pete and the team treat an illegal immigrant facing deportation who self-induces her pregnancy so that her child will be a U.S. citizen; Cooper and Violet work with a young girl who has gender identity disorder - and with her parents -- and Violet wants to continue therapy with Pete before they begin dating again.

May 8: “Drifting Back”
When a patient’s partner and father are heatedly divided on his health care, Pete makes a decision that impacts everyone, including himself; meanwhile, Jake offers strength and experience to Amelia when he suspects she’s being tempted to substance abuse, Sheldon and Violet treat a family concerned about the father’s new sexual appetite, and as baby Henry draws Addison and Sam closer, they struggle to define their relationship.

May 15: “Gone, Baby, Gone” 
When Amelia goes into labor, the Seaside doctors – even those she pushed away — come to her side as she faces the hardest decision of her life. Meanwhile, after Pete finds himself in life-changing trouble, he and Violet realize what they mean to one another, and Addison is faced with a choice.

NOTE: ABC has released the synopsis and a slew of photos from the Castle season finale. Check them out now!

Im for jake and addison all the way! Great season finally would be Amelia's baby being born normal and the ultrasound was a mistake or her baby getting a brain transplant ok it's tv anything can happen maybe her brother could come to seaside and save the day!


AGREE WITH LAC. JAKE IS FAKE AND IT IS SO OBVIOUS! Yes he is something new and could have been a good mate for Addison like 2 seasons ago. I am and will always be an ADDISON and SAM FAN!! They are so real together. Did I say that Taye is sooooooo hot! Kate is gorgeous! They are the most attractive couple on tv! If they don't make it I will just watch previous seasons over again on my dvd collection!


How did Addison get baby Henry?


Sam and Addison sounds great to me, if she is considering anyone. Having Jake being forced into this show as a romantice interest struck me as phony from day one. People change and hearts can be open - why not Sam?


Can Pete and Violet just leave already? They have got to be the most boring characters on television..


Now I think if it does go that direction, maybe seeing how Addison works with her child would change Sam's mind. I hope this does not happen, and if it does I hope Addison is a stronger person to stick to her guns. You know, Sam was so certain he did not want to be a father again, but he was not willing to accept that things could be different with the woman he claims to love. There are a lot of things people think they are certain of but then life changes your mind, because we don't have it all figured out. Sam made a big mistake here and he is no longer a suitable candidate. He needs to let Addison go. If he does love her, he should have wanted her happiness in the beginning.


Not Addison with Sam again! How can baby Henry draw them closer together if baby was a reason for their separation? Grrrrr


Love Private Practice, I hope it gets renewed. I'm so excited to see what the future holds for AddiSam even though I believe Addison will rightly choose Henry over any man this season.


I agree with Doe-Rae-Me. I don't think I can deal with anymore AddiSam. I'd much rather her be alone with Henry than to keep fooling around with Sam.


Not alone probably a fresh start. Sam is for himself and I don't think he understands what love is or has ever loved Addison. Addison has always wanted to have something in her life. She has faced being alone and unhappy in several relationships. I hoped she did not seek out a child to fulfill that void, but being a mother complements her. Go Jake, something clearly made him ubset here. Addison lack of maturity was the only thing that kept her kissing Sam, which she should not have done. To just ignore it now because of her son, is sweet, but she needs to clear that up. I think I'm just rooting for Jake now and hoping he finds the right degree of happiness in his life.
