Private Practice > Private Practice Review: Unicorn Baby > Comments Page 2
You need a Pete annoyance scale now. I used to love him but he's been an ass since his heartattack. Maybe his heart is defective now.
Amelia, omg Amelia, with her tough-don't touch me act so she didn't cry and her speech to Sam to convince him - that woman knows how to reach inside your chest and rip your heart out. Just like her brother that way! I cried every time she came onscreen. I had been so annoyed with her hate towards Addison and being so harsh on Sheldon lately but tonight she was flawless. Glad both of them finally pushed themselves back in her life when she needed them. I love Amelia with Jake too. He's been so good to her and the only one who got her throughout this. I wouldn't mind if he ended up with Amelia instead of Addison to be honest. I do like both of them. But only if they can be happy because Amelia really needs some happy and Jake is such a good guy - he deserves it too.
I'm tired of Addison's back and forth between men. She needs to grow up. Actually they all do. Pete's determination to be God, Sam's insecurity, and Cooper's inability to parent. The only one who is worth it is Charlotte. She has balls and yet can be the most caring and genuine. The whole show is based on who is screwing who. I don't think I'll watch it next year.
Not just the concept but actually showing the pieces of the baby being removed and the people waiting for the parts to shoot off and save other babies is what did it for me. It took real balls to create this baby with an actual face and body but no brain/upper skull and actually show it to viewers.
I really hope the show has the same balls when they decide FOR GOOD that Addison should be with Jake and not wishy-washy Sam who never knows what he wants from one minute to the next. If he was so adamant about not having a baby with Addison before and leaving the relationship, then he should stand by that. The whole "fight for you" spiel is old hat and at this point, having been through this before, Addison should learn to see through it.
Awesome show! Caterina, Emmy all the way! She pulled all of those emotions from way down deep, had to be hard as hell being actually pregnant! Done deal! Hollywood better recognize!
Addison chooses Sam, Jakes leaves the show. He got a little bit before he goes, but you have to remember that Kate and Taye are originals and make the show, they have to ride out to the end together! Last season people and it is 'TV' so Shonda can do what she wants. They are the most gorgeous and hottest couple on TV! Go AddiSam!!!! And that cute as everything, cheekie baby, Henry!
continued...for them in season 6. One, because I want you lot to like them again!! :) and two, because I think the show would not be the same without them! I'd like to see Pete back to practising alternative medicine and Violet and Sheldon back to arguing their cases(i love this shows insight into mental health issues). I hope Addison doesn't jump back into sams arms - i think she should to give this thing with Jake a chance (but hope they don't rush through their lovestory) - and i love benjamin bratt such a great addition to the show! All in all congratulations to a fabulous cast for a fabulous (albeit heartwrenching) season.
Loved the finale. I just love this show! Charlotte, Cooper and Mason - so cute. Amelia was absolutely incredible. I actually thought all the whole cast were incredible. There seem to be quite a few negative comments about Violet and Pete which makes me sad. It's been an difficult season for them - a lot of ups and downs but I believe in them and cannot imagine a PP without these two in it. They are part of the fabric of the show and great actors at that. I'm also glad one relationship is a bit messy and complicated because it keeps it real. Marriage doesn't come easily to all couples, its hard work and Pete's parents relationships hardly gave him insight into marriage and stable committed relationships. I have loved Violet and Pete from the beginning and will continue to defend them. I think they are both stubborn as hell but they are soulmates - at the end of the say they really understand each other. I am so so glad he 'compromised' and came home. I hope Shonda does something great f
I love seeing addison and jake together - i hope PP and Shonda sticks to letting them being together.:)
Sam is fine and all, but i just dont like that they would stay together, due to his "i dont want more children". He wants addison - yes, but not children but she wants to be a mother.
Sam should find someone who have the same thoughts as he has. Having a baby is tough, and you cant just be in and out of that whenever it suits you.:)
Now addison is a mother and she should be with jake:)
I understand your point of view and your frustration. But nevertheless you have to understand that having a baby with no brains is rare. Also the baby can live while the woman is pregnant, but not when you give birth to it. The baby WILL die.
Im sorry if i hurt your feelings, but its the truth. You can see on a scanning session what the child looks like, and in PP you see in an episode that Addison scans Amelia and can see that the baby is NOT okay. Its Amelia's decision to give birth to the baby so it can save other babies.:)
I find that storyline so beautiful, coz there are babies that needs transplants.:)
The story is NOT about abortions or having the perfect baby, but about doing the right thing. :)
I think this show celebrates the perfect baby but no other baby has the right of life. The unwanted baby... The damaged baby... The parent who can't handle a baby... The baby who has the unfortunate situation of to not have the perfect future well those are all reasons to kill babies. On this show doctors and parents decide who have the right to live and anyone who argues that is wrong.
I am tired of how this show celebrates the disreguard of a right that's even unarguable in our constitution-- the simple but most important right, the right to life.
Maybe we should stop aborting babies. Let them be born and use their parts on the children we actually want. That probably was already a storyline.
I absolutely loved this episode. If you took out Violet and Pete from it, it would've actually been perfect. Amelia's arc has just been so heavy but at the same time great to watch. And as Shonda said, it was a really great backdrop for Addison and Charlotte to realize how far they've come. I won't say more because the 1000 characters limit will probably cut me off anyway but it was just a really great finale! I'm so grateful the show's been renewed!
...Sam could be a decent guy, but because of his own insecurities within himself, he tends to pull down those that love him. It's up to Addie to make the best choice for Henry and no one else. That is what being a mother is about. Sam needs to know boundaries, you do not tell the nanny to leave, that's not his call. He is afraid of losing Addie and is willing to jump the gun in hope that all their problems would be fixed. Life doesn't work that way. Until Addison sees that, she doesn't deserve the loving care Jake has to offer either.
Addison needs to learn to make up her own mind and stick to it. When Addison got Henry, she showed so much maturity but then she slipped back into this 'choosing between two men' nonsense. Henry should be the most important person in her life now.
Sam is immature. He acts like a child when he doesn't get his way and becomes spiteful as an act of revenge. When he was speaking to Jake after witnessing the kiss, he took out his feelings on the situation. There could have been less attitude there. Jake was the only one to show maturity from day one. Sam was ridiculous to think he could be with Addison and still support her choice to be a mother when he did not want children. He was naive to run back to her when she may have changed her mind slightly and he was also a jerk for lashing out at Addie when she tried to move on.

This is how you write a show, this is how you tell a story. You make your audience cry & then laugh & then cry some more all in the same episode. I love that Maison decided to call Charlotte "momma" like she calls her mom. I was teetering on the edge with tears because of of Amelia but Maison & Charlotte's seen just made me loose it. As i said...this is how you write a show.
I loved Amelia and all the cast this season one of the best season finallys ever!!!! Amelia's story line was very well acted and oscar and emmy material out standing!!!!!
Awesone awesome show!!! Amelia was simply outstanding!! Her acting was just RIDICULOUSLY FABULOUS!! I loved Charlotte an Mason's moment...and I don't know what we goin do with Lil hotmess can't get it together Addison...along with her hotmess men!! Can't wait till next season
They need some new characters in this show - there is too much "marrying your cousin" going on.
Great episode though and I guess I'm in the minority when I say I would like to see Addison with Sam. Agreed that the actress playing Amelia should be Emmy nominated.
Thanks for reviewing.
Loved the episode, the highlights for me where Amelia! she was awesome, i really felt for her and little unicorn baby :(, she and Sheldon, hes kinda of annoying to me, but still find him cute today, and finally Charlotte and Mason!! Mamma! That was lovely!!!!
On the other side, hate Violet, i find her unnecessary and very overrated, and Pete...well i don't even wanna go there... Also Sam! I mean, come on, this is not felicity to be running around back and forth with the same guy. Addison should get a clean start with someone who doesn't carry all the emotional baggage that Sam has and he is too selfish and somewhat boring, and BESIDES you can't marry your ex-best friend ex-husband!! That's not cool not even in the Shonda Rhimes universe.
I thought Amelia was incredible in this episode, she deserves some kind of award. There was another episode too she was incredible in a few month back when she was using drugs. Great Actress!
Addison bores me!
I didn't like Charlotte in the beginning years but have liked her more and more over the years. I'm really enjoying her character. Charlotte was excellent too when the little boys mother was dying.
I really enjoy this show each week. Thank you
@Scarlett, I recall some back-and-forth about the ethics surrounding the harvesting of Amelia's baby's organs and whether the hospital board would approve it. However, I don't recall as clearly as you do the discussion of whether all of the surgeons could be arrested and their medical licenses revoked (perhaps because I was sobbing so loud). Regardless, the show proceeded to portray surgeons taking out a live baby's organs and sending them off to be used by others, essentially killing a baby whose life may have been brief but who was still alive nonetheless. And then two doctors had sex in a break room. Of course, we all deal with grief and ethical and moral struggles differently. But I would think there might have been a little more reverence given in light of the serious implications of these doctors' actions. Maybe next season these doctors will momentarily debate and then take a kidney from a comatose patient who really doesn't need two. The show's producers are responsible for ope
Great review for a great season finale! The only thing I can say is: how can you only smile when, as Mason called Charlotte "Momma", she immediately teared up... smiles aren't enough... I could not control my tears! Charlotte has been my favorite character from the beginning, and I am so happy to see how far she has come.
And Violet is such an irrelevant character for me!!! Why does one Grey's character need to die and Violet gets to stay? My Violet annoyance scale is definitely through the roofs.
Great episode to end the season. Terrible final scene of the proposal, why cant they just let it go?
Hopes for next season:
1) Charlotte and Cooper remain happy
2) Amelia grieves for her baby then gets some happiness in her life, whatever form that may take.
And above all else
3) Sheldon finally gets a storyline
Amelia/Sheldon-So glad they made up. They have been a sob-fest for me lately!
Charlotte/Mason/Cooper-By far my favorite people in the show now. Water works galore after Mason said Momma! OMG so sweet. @Christina Tran - A preggers Charlotte would be AWESOME! I'm giggling just thinking about it. They have to have this in store for her, it's just too good to pass up.
Major congrats to the cast on the acting. Strong episode. I just wish they would make one where I wasn't constantly crying or horribly depressed after the ep. I have to watch this show before all my others so I can end my night on something happy! It ends sad waaaaaay too often.
On the other stuff-
P&V-glad he decided to actually do right by his family but seriously I agree their storyline is the worst. Well, almost...
Addison/J/S- UGH!!! Can we PLEASE drop the Sam part of this? He flat out said over and over and over again he didn't want to be a parent. This is not an issue to compromise on! You either jump full in with a child or not. (Which is why I have waited so long to have a baby, I was never sure I wanted one until now) But him deciding at the last possible second(too late I think) that he wants to do this? Jake has been this steady person by Addison the whole season. Why can't Addison get a steady amazing guy for once? (Sorry Sam selfish & childish attitudes for most of this season have put him on my permanent ignore list) I hope Addison actually says slow down to Jake and goodbye Sam. She needs to just chill with little Henry for awhile and get used to being a mom.
Amelia/Sheldon-So glad they made up. They have been a so
@Elizabeth - Um did you notice that they did actually say throughout this episode that it was NOT legal to do yet because the medical community hadn't agreed what constitutes life with babies like this? They didn't ignore this AT ALL. Everyone wanted to abide by Amelia's wishes that her baby not be born and die in vain. In the end Charlotte ignored the lawyers and told them to go ahead. But if you were watching it seemed that the baby would have died quickly anyway because he went into respiratory distress almost immediately. This seemed to be a case where the baby would have died very soon after birth.
***To be clear, I'm not siding with anyone on the issue because that's a whole other can of worms I don't want to touch. I just wanted to make it clear that they didn't fudge the details on the legalities of it. They just chose to go ahead anyway.***
@D.Howe - Thanks for reciprocating the high five. I honestly forgot about the days when Pete was considered hot and mysterious. Gone were those days! Now, when I think about Violet, I think about Pete... vice versa.
@DeAnn - Trust me when I say I'm always a little down when there's just no room for a VAS. Here's to hoping next season's reviews all include a skyrocketing VAS (or seemingly a PAS) every week!
