Private Practice Season 4 Episode 11 (01/06/11)
Addison’s mom, Bizzy, wants her to save her lover Susan’s life.
Addison says there’s nothing she can do. Susan is going to die.
Bizzy says that’s acceptable and slaps Addison in the face.
Dr. Rodriguez is back and still has a little thing for Addison.
He’s bummed to learn that the only reason she called is for help with Susan’s case.
Once they see that the cancer has spread to the liver, both agree there are no real options. Bizzy does not like this news, so she lays into Addison again.
Sam realizes Bizzy is right and encourages her to get in the ring. Addison wants to operate on Susan using a special machine and Dr. Rodriguez's help.
The operation is a success, but Addison is stunned again by Bizzy's engagement to Susan.
Cory Ramsey, a brilliant engineer whose brain is about to burst after a near-fatal car accident, needs damaged portions of his brain removed.
The patient’s wife, Patricia, doesn’t want any procedure that will affect his mental capacity. This frustrates Pete, as well as the guy’s girlfriend, Janel.
She just wants him to live.
When Cory starts to crash, Pete must relieve the pressure on his brain immediately. He does so without the wife’s permission.
The surgery is a success, but only Janel goes to see Cory. For Patricia, the man she knew is gone.
Violet has been keeping a journal to help her deal with her attack. It’s a book that has sparked interest from a publisher.
Naomi and Sheldon think the memoir is brilliant. Pete wonders if she really wants to expose the details of what happened.
Charlotte says that it helped when Violet talked to her about her rape. This has our favorite aspiring author thinking that her written words may help others, too.
Cooper tells Sheldon that he wants to have sex. He tries to ease back into it with Charlotte but it's not happening just yet.
