Coming to Private Practice: Addison's Father

at . Comments

Last season, Private Practice and Grey's Anatomy viewers got to know more about Addison's past as her brother Archer battled through a life-threatening disease.

From her tenure on Grey's Anatomy to her role as the leading lady of Private Practice, her history has been hinted at more than it has been explored. Until recently.

Fans will soon learn a lot more about her privileged background in this third season, according to reports, in a November episode aptly titled "Sins of the Father."

That's when Addison's dad drops in to Oceanside Wellness Center. Barry Bostwick will guest star as the man known as The Captain, so you know he's important!

To the surprise of no one, the redheaded daughter and her father “have bad blood between them,” the show insider revealed. “It’s a very tense relationship.”

Bostwick is best known for his former role as the Mayor on Spin City. But in 2009 alone, he has appeared on Nip/Tuck, Ghost Whisperer and Supernatural.

Private Practice is all-new tonight after Grey's Anatomy.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.


MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."
