Private Practice Episode Recaps and Round Table Discussion: "The Parent Trap" & "Blowups"

at .

Filling in nicely for Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice brought the drama big-time last night on ABC with back-to-back episodes, titled "The Parent Trap" and "Blowups."

In the first hour, Sam and Naomi's parenting struggles actually brought them closer together, and in the second, poor Dell's world was rocked to the core by Heather.

Throughout the night, we learned more about Addison's family - as did she.

The Captain and Bizzy both played big roles last night, in terms of Addison, but also of Pete and Violet. Spoiler alert: Her parents' marriage isn't really what it seems.

In particular, one discovery nearly pushed our girl over the edge.
