Private Practice > Private Practice Season 6 Shocker: Who's Out? > Comments Page 3
The only reasons I still watch this show are Shemelia and Charcoop. If not as couples, then at these ladies. Amelia and Charlotte are so amazing.
Sam, Violet and Pete could go to Mars and I wouldn't care.
They could open season 6 with a funeral for Pete who got killed in prison.
Major news, indeed. If this cut by Shonda was truly for budgetary reasons, then she should have sent Violet packing as well. Violet, Pete and Lucas could have moved faraway and had their own happy ending without the practice.
@Jarrod Exactly. The way the season finale was done, it would make more sense for other characters to leave. Pete's situation was left with an open end - you don't know if he'll be tossed into jail again or where his relationship with Violet stands. I'm not the biggest fan of the character but I'm a fan of good storytelling and this move doesn't seem like it'll deliver very good storytelling. I don't know how they'll explain/navigate his absence in terms of Lucas for example. And I really don't like the idea of a time jump. I get that with these 13 episodes possibly being the last of the series they want to maximize it but it's frustrating that we won't get closure on this core character.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!! he's supposed to be with Addison!! and not i'm mad that its the last season and he's not going to be in it!! then if he's not coming back nor going to be with Addison she better be with Jake i don't like her with Sam they don't set well for me, and he doesn't want any kids and she does, now that she has a kid now he wants to be with her cause she's happy... no i don't want Sam and Addie together.. Let her be with Jake instead cause he was their for her every step of the way when she wanted a kid ..
@Caitlyn: I was thinking the exact same thing! Pete may no longer be a likable character for me, but his character still has a lot of potential. Sam could easily leave, as well as Sheldon or Amelia. These 3 could easily have a way of being written out after the events (and possible outcomes) of the cliffhanger. But what annoys be about this is that now we're in for a time jump and not a continuation. I highly doubt Tim Daly will guest star.
@S: I was actually reading somewhere that Chyler Leigh being written out was due to speculation of the budget in regards to the original 6 cast members returning and their pay.
So she kills lexie on Grey's anatomy and is not bringing back pete shonda is gonna be lucky if anyone watches her shows next year huge mistakes!!!
I'm shocked. Pete and Violet going back and forth throughout the last season got exhausting but certainly there's still a story for this character. He still has a family in the show so just getting him out makes no sense to me at all. I mean, what is that, they'll just say he's in jail and that'll be the end of it? I think other characters right now are far more disposable than Pete even though he can get annoying. Sheldon might be funny and all but even after all this time writers still don't know what to do with him. Amelia could even be written out just to give the character a break already. Say she went on a much needed vacation or change in life! And Sam or Jake could easily be written out depending on who Addison chooses. I just think there's far more Pete can do.
This is horrible! I wish she would've cut Taye Diggs so at least her audience wouldn't be forced to watch AddiSam anymore.
I have no idea what the budget is, but surely Tim Daly’s wouldn’t be the highest paycheck. I’m not saying get rid of anyone, but I’m guessing Kate Walsh, Benjamin Bratt, Taye Diggs AND Amy Brenneman would have high paychecks compared to Tim Daly, KaDee Strickland, Caterina Scorsone, Paul Adeilstein and Brian Benben. I mean, if anything, they should have just cut down Mason Gluck to recurring role. Making Cooper’s son a main character was stupid to begin with. I get the integrity of his character for Cooper and Charlotte’s character development, but it’s not worth it. I don’t like Pete, but there could have been SO much done for his character in regards to Violet and Lucas and his ‘murder’ storyline. I like Sheldon, but there is nothing there with his character. Cuts could have been made else where and not to an ORIGINAL character.
Wow. Way to kick a guy while he's down. Typical of Shonda. "I've only been working with you for 5 years, but hey, you're fired due to budget cuts. See yah!". I honestly believe that Shonda can be a bitch when she wants to. This may come across as judgmental, but firing Tim through his agent is not only disrespectful, but lacks general integrity and loyalty to her colleges. I really hope that once Grey's Anatomy has run it's course, that Shonda is black listed, because someone who doesn't know the meaning of compassion should honestly not be working in a business where those you work with for so long eventually become a second family.
