private practice s6e9
I am a big fan of the show Private Practice. I have watched al the season of this comedy and drama series. This season is hilarious as all the episodes of the season are delightful. But this episode, ‘I am Fine’ is an average one. Although you can’t skip it as there are several moments in the show, which entertains but there are also some moments, which are not so good. Here, Sheldon is trying to find happiness with a new woman, but it seems that the case of missing girl is still wandering in his mind. That is why; he thinks that one of his patients is involved in the case. link to watch full episode 9 of season 6 of Private Practice online for free!

'Eyes Wide Open', what do you see, Cooper reveals why he and Charlotte did not agree. Okay that sums up the big question that's been dangling over Cooper and Charlotte as to why exactly did they break up, before the fighting and constant quarreling. It's had to imagine that Cooper lost his 'Mojo' in the midst of all their physicality in the relationship. There was a time where it was only sex between Cooper and Charlotte. So this leaves me wondering, Charlotte's the sexual therapist, it must have been a huge embarrassment on Cooper's part to have Charlotte wave the 'I can solve all your problems in bed' card in his face. That still doesn't excuse his pathetic actions of insecurity in himself around her.

That aside, Violet's back! Is she ready for a relationship? Where was she all this time that gave her this sudden epiphany? So this episode leaves us with a cliffhanger. Doesn't Addison know, you just don't enter a serious relationship with someone with unresolved feelings and loose ends. It's funny when you think about it, who would have predicted that Pete would be a father and in a serious relationship two years down the road. Violet was the one to get Pete out of...

This is where we are with Private Practice; presenting consistency, brilliant acting and a wonderful cast engaging in unthinkable story lines. Way to go Shonda Rhimes. The focus with 'Pulling the Plug' actually reflected the title. Naomi wanted to pull the plug on Addison and let whatever friendship they had flow down the drain. We also had the end of Charlotte and Sheldon (gladly), probably even Charlotte and Cooper. Finally the plug is pulled and Pete reveals his true feelings to Addison about Violet. Who would despise it more than Addison in that moment to be called by another woman's name.

Addison and Lucas worked well together - eventually. I wonder how many 'takes' it took Kate Walsh (Addison) when working with that scene. Addison seemed to miserable to function with a child and then that simple scene in a tub, it makes you wonder whether Walsh has experience with children. It's ironic that the child specialist, could not actually take care of a child on her own. Healing and delivering babies are one thing, nurturing is another.

Triangles are usually associated with love affairs and mixed feelings within mixed relationships. Now 'Triangles' could have been placed on the Cooper-Charlotte-Sheldon trio, where Cooper couldn't bare the jealousy of Charlotte and another man together, the triangle could be placed among Addison-Pete-and-Sam or even Addison-Sam-and-Naomi. This episode bore it's focus on so many triangular related plots, that even the title had to succumb to it. If there was any doubt about the triangular theme, Naomi-White-and-Fife should put the final touch on the many altered and complex relationships already existing.

It was surprising how cleverly the writers made Naomi aware of the Sam and Addison love-friend-lover-whatever-affair going on. It was an awkward stage between the two of them and Addison held off on being with Sam only to have Naomi still be angry with her. Addison was wrong for allowing her feelings for Sam to go beyond friendship, but she should have just held her tongue and avoid mentioning the kiss between her and Sam, no matter how much her guilty conscience weighed down on her. By the look of things, Naomi and Addison would not be mending fences soon. Even though...

Even as the title is 'Fear of Flying', it didn't only revolve around Sheldon's case, with the woman. It actually reflected everyone's fear of flying. Addison was afraid to hurt Naomi's feelings and venture into a relationship with Sam, Sam was afraid to move on with someone that didn't quite remind him of Addison, Naomi was afraid to explore her feelings for Fife, Cooper was afraid to admit his feelings for Charlotte, Charlotte was afraid to get hurt again and Violet was afraid to come home. Each and every character, had their fear similar to that of flight, climbing and moving up or even moving on.

I was surprised that Amy Brennman (Violet) was not included here. Each character was well utilized, but as a main character, she was missed. All they seem to establish around Violet since her incident with Katie, was that she was damaged and needed some sort of fixing, emotionally. Let's hope this trip did her some good and she returns next time revived and newly reformed.

No one really prepares for their fifteen year old child's wedding. It is actually something you put at the back of your head, as you watch them grow into the individuals you can be proud of. You would even want them to either follow in your professional footsteps, or get them to have the better life you could not afford yourself. We always want the best for our children, so we can relate with Sam and Naomi's story.

It took guts on Naomi's part, attempting to stay away from everything that was taking place. I am certain she hoped that if she closed her eyes and turned her head enough times, all her problems would go away; she would no longer have to face a pregnant daughter, in love at an uncertain teenage time and she would no longer have a wedding to deal with. If you really think about it, this situation would be overwhelming for any mother.

Maya showed a great level of maturity for her age, while she tried to get Naomi to fess up and realize what was happening. Sam was right, the more Naomi ignored everything related to what her daughter was going through, the more Maya would form her own family having her mother on the sidelines as though she were a...

I really have no idea what's up with Sam, was he upset with Addison because she wouldn't have sex with him? Or is it the fact that she would prefer not to date her best friend's ex. I give Addison credit for not giving in to temptation, it takes a lot more to resist than it does to give in. Sam should applaud Addison for her strength as a friend and should not try to push her back into her world of misery by making her feel bad for doing the right thing. Friends tend to show their true colors when times get tough, and I am not liking Sam one bit.

As we are on the Addison topic, did she and Pete finally hook up, after three seasons? I saw it coming the moment they were alone together after a day of misery. I just don't understand why? Why put them together after so long, why ruin the friendship between them? The only guy 'friend' Addison has left well, I would say Cooper, but the last scene they had together, Cooper wanted to rip Addison's head off. So Addison really has no one. Not even in Grey's Anatomy, everyone else she has either slept with or had some kind of intimate connection to. Well, there is Sheldon, but does convenient psychiatrist really count?

*sniffle* ...why does Private Practice have to be so sad week after week. Beautiful acting as usual by all cast members, but does somebody always have to be crying or in a crisis, I want some happy times now! *sniffle*.

Aside from all the melodrama this was yet another beautiful episode. Again I admire the topics being dealt with; teenage pregnancy, single parenting, friendship dilemma's and friendships entirely. At first I really couldn't tolerate Sam and Addison in a love scene together, and I still don't want them to end up together. Something about that picture doesn't really strike 'happy couple' to me. I believe they are the one friendship that wasn't wrecked by all the relationship drama and crossing that line for me would ruin that.

On top of that situation, Sam came off as a huge hot head there; always drunk and upset over Maya's situation. I think I cringed when Addison was going through a deja vu mode with Sam in her office. She probably got some flashbacks between her and Mark in the same situation and that didn't end up so good. Hey what ever happened to Mark's daughter, has it been dealt with in Grey's because I am lost there. Things just...

'Best Laid Plans'; reflected the uncertainty with outcomes, when the best of plans are made. The most moving plot in this episode for me, was probably Maya's conflicting thoughts about abortion and keeping a child. Unfortunately she did not have the necessary guidance to make the experience easier for her, but according to Addison; Maya did an adult action and she is now forced to deal with an adult decision. No teenager should be forced to make a decision like that.

I believe that this was the most moving episode for Naomi and her turn to shine. In the line of highly qualified actresses, Audra McDonald took her slice of the cake this round. Shonda Rhimes made a tough decision implementing 'The Abortion' themed up with the 'Teenage Pregnancy' storyline, because it has been executed many times before on television. At the risk of coming of cliche and redundant, Rhimes pulled it off beautifully. I know her cast is what brought the script to life, but they all work well together as a team.

Is Cooper for real. Does he really resent Charlotte because he feels emasculated?

Why do I despise Cooper so much? Is it because he talks to Charlotte as though she were a play toy, or an animal he could boss around? Or is it because Charlotte hasn't smacked him over the head for half the hurtful words he uttered to her? Where did all this hatred come from Cooper? Is it Charlotte you are really upset with, because she omitted some personal facts about her life? Hello you two are still getting to know each other, stop bickering like a married couple, unhappy after Fifty Years of Marriage. Cooper grow a pair and fess up, you don't talk to Charlotte that way!

Phew. That needed to be said aloud, because I feel like the only one who despises Cooper for his arrogance, and his selfishness. Cooper essentially has real problems and I believe these issues stem from Charlotte paying Addison for the Practice on his behalf, and acting like a grown up. The whole marriage issue and lying was a cover up for his true feelings of guilt; that he couldn't pay up. Charlotte is not the reason for his resenting himself, he just feels better taking it out on her. I hoped...

I don't question why I fully committed to Private Practice being one of my favorite series of all time. There was a time where some episodes slipped through the cracks, but I always enjoyed being humored by Addison and got sucked into the constant chaos, yet 'The Hard Part' surpassed all my expectations. I knew Private Practice had it in them. I don't know whatever skill the writers caught on to during the season break, but it's working. After 'Strange Bedfellows', I didn't think it could get better and it did. A few moments later I am writing this review and I can't stop thinking about every detail and moment that would sink anyone's heart in.

Addison and Sam established a deep bond, being neighbors and single who would really blame them. Even on their break, they still had to work the hardest and Addison almost got killed doing the very same job she was passionate about. Private Practice has a knack for delivering heartfelt guest star appearances. Kara played by Ever Carradine was exceptional as the pregnant woman trapped in a wrecked car. Her panic and disarray was nerve wrecking and out of the middle of nowhere, their chances of survival was very slim. Jake and...

The only thing worse than a physical affair is an emotional one. A physical affair you can get over, but from the time you fall for that other person and taste that sense of something forbidden, it stays with you for a long time.


Morgan was the latest of updates when dealing with Addison and Noah. Noah's absence does nothing but broaden our curiosity of 'What's the Deal'? Addison just ended it, but it more or so seemed like she was avoiding it.

It was actually refreshing seeing Morgan's baby healthy from last season's scare, they mentioned nothing of the baby and Morgan since this season opened and we know situations like this to get that you can't just say 'It's over' and move on. That is exactly why Morgan's appearance was the boldest as she held her baby and asked if Addison and her husband were sleeping together, in front of witnesses; she surely wanted her to feel a lot of shame if her suspicions were true and I'm sure Addison was even more elated that it didn't cross over to that, but does almost count? Of course it does.

Out of the several different ways one could feel like a prisoner in their own home is to have a piece of your sanity cut away from you.


Violet had her share of what it felt like to quiver at the sound of your very own door bell. The worst consequence of her nearly fatal confrontation with death by a psychopath is that she no longer feels a connection to her very own new born son.

'The Way We Were' marked the changes in the lives of everyone; be it directly linked to Violet's mishap with Katie or indirectly. The case subject even marked the essence of everyone. It takes the vulnerability of another wrecked family to reflect the true image of the lives in the Practice.

I felt a sort of sadness for everyone in the group; Naomi has left the Practice in the capable hands of Addison and Sam, but things aren't really meshing together because they both feel that something is missing in their lives. In 'A Death in a Family', Addison made it clear that she felt as though Naomi had abandoned her; if we analyzed Addison's entire lifestyle, she's been hurt the most part of it and almost everyone has abandoned her with haste, so I understand the...

Pain is like having a knife stuck in your back and having someone rip your guts out until you meet a slow death. Imagine that, then you would get an idea of how Violet felt when she had her baby ripped out of her by a psychopath and left for dead.


The season premiere of Private Practice was long awaited, ever since last season where we saw a mad Katie claim Violet's baby as her own and daring her destructive tool to remove what she thought was hers. How can anyone claim a baby unless they were completely nuts? She could have easily waited until the baby was born to save herself the whole mess.

Though Violet barely gave birth, death could have easily met her side. Pete's destined save was a matter of some intervention and the only hope Violet had of living.

This was a sad day for everyone. Even the flashback which crossed everyone's mind of the first time they met Violet, when the Practice initially started. The funeral service at the beginning was a throw of, because the thought which passed through everyone's mind was 'Is that Violet's funeral?'

Violet dosed by her crazed patient Katie...
Now the final scene with Violet was cold and far out creepy, literally gave the chills...

When the crazy patients turn on their very own psychiatrists.

Katie Kent played by Amanda Foreman,
made her first appearance in What Women Want.
Katie was already regarded as mentally unstable ever since she lost her baby and couldn't come to terms with the loss by still regarding her baby alive and well. She eventually came to terms, with Violet's help.

Or so we thought.
Katie did present a sense of jealousy towards Violet, because after all she did lose her baby and Violet was there having hers all well and healthy. It was as though looking at Violet bore a constant reminder of what she lost.

On another take...
Another main storyline: Addison and Noah.
Remember their storyline, Addison falls for a patient's husband. Well apparently Addison still had her eyes on Noah and this time Morgan (a.k.a the wife) caught on!

Pete and Lisa (New love interest)
After such a long break from the
Private Practice 'Do the Right Thing'
hanger dangling between Noah and Addison, we were left wondering which way the writers would spin the on-off love 'affair' between this heated pair.
Only to have a reminder of the couple's steamy, passionate, extravagant... kiss. What would you call Noah's fascination towards Addison that literally had him panting over her by her door step.


They gave us a brief introduction in 'What You Do for Love', but left us with unanswered questions as they switched over to Cooper and a pregnant Violet... which was kind of a disappointment. I haven't really been a fan of the Cooper-Violet-Charlotte triangle, but this scene was oddly amusing. Cooper is really fortunate to have a girlfriend like Charlotte, because I really do not understand how Charlotte copes with the Cooper-Violet situation and seeing that the only thing that pulls Cooper away from Violet is sex.


Maybe Charlotte doesn't worry because of Violet's other men; Pete, Sheldon. Violet seemed to be showing a hint of jealousy towards Pete's new girlfriend, by the way - are doctors allowed to date their...

Looks like we're on a bit of a break from our favorite series, still Private Practice left us with a series of cliff hangers;

From Addison's Almost-Affair with Noah which I'm sure is the main topic of concern-
To Naomi's brief love affairs currently with Duncan (and old friend of Sam)

What do you think would happen, or just shouldn't happen?

* Pete's New Love Interest... but couldn't Violet's baby be his, I'm sure that could be complicated- would it even matter?

* What about Violet's Child? Could you imagine Sheldon* as the father (that might give the writers another excuse to keep him in the show).

* Okay, I am maybe hinting that that Sheldon isn't my favorite character, be it because he is way underused or simply for a Shrink he really seems to need counseling himself :).

* Did Violet and Charlotte have a girl spat? It's really hard imagining them as friends. I laugh every time Charlotte comes over to have it with Cooper-doesn't she call him first.

What are you doing Addison?

Usually the plot line between Addison and Dr. Noah Barnes would come off as 'They did this one already' on the show, but something about this couple seemed different.

***CONTAINS SPOILERS***

Probably in the 'Finishing' episode they made us like him a bit, before we imagined that he was married, let alone to Addison's patient. The desire between them is relentless and I find myself wondering what length they would take it to, if they were left in a room together; alone. Still I wonder how during his wife's weakened state, he somehow finds the time to imagine Addison in very 'non-doctor (your wife's doctor that is)' way. Then again maybe Addison should have kept her mouth shut in last week's 'What women Want' and not mention to him that the 'feeling' was mutual.

In 'Do The Right thing' it simply defines what this entire episode was about; doing the right thing.

Be it Sam doing the right thing on the stand, a mother doing the right thing for her daughter or Addison doing the right thing for her patient and herself.

Private Pactice, Not Just A Grey's Spin Off.
I read the other Article on this spot& I totally agree,& I just wanted to give my own opinion.
Spin off's have always gotten a bad reputation for being a wierd mutated version of it's predecessor(In this Case Grey's)but when you think about it Grey's is about Meredith Grey- Intern/Resident while Private Practice is about every single charactor in the show,we get to like them equely,no voice overs,no hospital, no Grey,nadda!!
In my opinion Private Pratice is a completely different show with no real likeness to Grey's.It is more fun& doesnt revolve around one person which is much nicer. Another example of a great spin off show would have to be Buffy's Angel spin off,which in my opinion surpassed Buffy's in standards& story plot.
Private Practice Is a refreshing& Interesting look at hospital/(practice?)drama& Is very original& people that love Grey's should give it the attention they give Grey's& see exactly why it's such a good show,If the like Grey's they will like this too,I personally Like Private Practice for the fact that it isnt as miserable as Greys!
