Private Practice Review: A Cooper, Duper Surprise

at .

The theme of trust defined this week's Private Practice episode.

From the drama among the doctors to the unique medical cases, there is always something to love week in and week out about Oceanside Seaside Health and Wellness. "Deal with It" was certainly no different.

Addison and Violet

While Sam and Addie seem happy, there is still an underlying problem in regard to the latter wanting a baby and Sam, well, not still not. It doesn’t appear that he will be changing his mind any time soon, either, and I just can’t see how their relationship will continue to work. Although Sam expressed he was happy for Addison and it’s her “thing," I want her to be truly happy. And because Sam has no interest in it, I'm sorry man, but you've gotta go. Addie must move on.

Maybe she should try being single. Or maybe I could send her a Team Jake shirt. Who else is on that squad?

It hasn’t been long and Jake’s grown on me already. He’s a caring doctor and it showed when he was with his patient after the disappointing results of his efforts to help her become a mother.

I can’t say that I liked seeing Charlotte’s and Amelia’s constant snide remarks toward one another, but it was definitely entertaining. On another note, I appreciated that Charlotte didn’t easily get over what Cooper did last week. He violated her trust, and I’m just glad they made up by the end of the installment.

Cooper and Charlotte seemingly steal the show every week with their scenes. Moreover, I know I am burying the lead, but I am still in shock about Erica and Mason’s surprising arrival. When Erica said that Cooper was the father, all I could think about was: poor Charlotte! Honestly, how much more can this girl handle?

Then again, this is Charlotte, she is one tough cookie. It will undoubtedly be interesting to see how things play out now for my favorite couple. I’m sure there will be some bumps down the road, but this is no ordinary couple we’re talking about. They’re going to be fine, right? Please reassure me. Please.

As for Violet and Pete, I was feeling a bit disinterested with their storyline. I do think that Lucas keeps getting more adorable with every episode, and I especially liked when Violet ended up with baby food all over her face. Also, when Addison said that she liked Violet’s new “radical” hair, I couldn’t help but think... really?!? Her new 'do reminds me of Princess Leia.

One more thing: when the heck is Sheldon going to get his own storyline? Writers, please make it happen ASAP.

"Deal with It" was an interesting episode and set us up for much drama to come. Starting, of course, with the fact a mini Cooper is now in town. Get an idea of where we go next in the official preview for "Remember Me."
