Private Practice Rundown: Episode 19, "What Women Want"

Private Practice Rundown: Episode 19, "What Women Want"

I feel really lukewarm about this week's episode of Private Practice. On the one hand, there are surprisingly cute moments, including the budding friendship between Charlotte and Violet. On the other hand, there's a lame, super-crazy patient who I stopped caring about halfway through the episode.

And then, somewhere in the middle, there is this flirtation between Addison and Noah, the doctor married to Addison's pregnant patient. Last week I was annoyed that Addison would enter into a cheating type of relationship again, given her history, but now I'm mostly weirded out by Noah. I'll tell you why if you


Addison does her best to control herself, and even tries (unsuccessfully) to pass the pregnant wife onto another doctor. Noah spends the whole episode making a case for why he can't control his emotions and — get this — he loves her! Hold up! Noah spent like, two days, making eyes at Addison and now he's in love with her? He says something about how he thought he loved his wife and is trying to be a good man by sticking with her but, you know, turns out he doesn't love her. So why on earth would Addison trust a man who said he thought he loved the woman he married but that turned out to be a mistake? The same guy who says he's in love with Addison after, what, three encounters? Um, sure you are, dude.

I'm also confused by the Dell story line. Do you think he blames Naomi for his wife disappearing with his daughter? She advised him not to call the mother of his child while he was angry, so I'm wondering if he resents that advice. Also, I thought it strange that he mopes around the office and talks to the crazy lady after discovering his wife is gone instead of say, calling the cops. That's kidnapping, I believe, and he might be wasting valuable time tracking the mom down. I don't know, maybe I'm being too pragmatic.

Finally, I'm loving Violet and Charlotte as friends. Somehow, compared to Violet's neediness and selfishness these days, Charlotte's starting to look cool and fun. Cooper wanted them to get along but then is weirded out when he finds Charlotte painting Violet's toenails. Be careful what you wish for, my friends! Also, Pete finally took interest in Violet's ultrasound, therefore he's taking a risk with his feeling that the child is his, which probably means the writers will make it Sheldon's. Can we all just pray Violet and Sheldon didn't make a baby? *Shudder*

Some more thought from this episode:

  • Sam broke it off with Sonya and now he's having a hard time setting Naomi up with other men. Poor guy is not finding it easy to move on.
  • Speaking of, I love when Naomi asks Sam if she looks slutty and he says she does, a little, and she goes, "Well it's not like I'm looking for a husband!" Ha!
  • How sad is that HPV couple? That is scary! And do you think that girlfriend is a horrible person for running out on her boyfriend? Or is it kind of understandable?
  • The best ever is Naomi showing up to work hungover after a big night at the bar with everyone ("Picking up people in bars is a bad idea.").
  • Violet's having a boy!

Oh and I also agree about the fake baby bumps - Violet's was so awful it wasn't even funny!

I totally agree about Noah! The first thing I did when he told Addison he loved her is turn to my sister and go "huh???" They don't even know each other! Have they even had a real conversation? (about something besides how wrong the attraction is). I would be totally creeped out by him declaring his love for me like that when you don't even have a clue about each other. It was kind of a weird episode overall. I love this show but sometimes I think they could do better or have a smarter plotline. Haven't we gone back and forth on Sam and Naomi like ten times?

I really hope that Addison stays away from married guy. When he said "I love you" I was like "on the basis of what, exactly?" So random. The girlfriend just bailing was awful. First, you don't tell you bf that you have HPV? Even if you didn't give him cancer I'd be totally pissed about that. Then your omission lands him with cancer and you just leave? Bad person, in my book. Also, I'm getting so sick of irrational pregnant women putting themselves in danger at least once a week. New plotline please. Violet and Charlotte though? Cute, and I really like Charlotte more and more.

Haha Sarana- They do have some seriously bad faux bumps on that show! I thought that every time Violet was in a scene.

I liked this epi. Dell to me always just seems like an afterthought. They throw him a storyline but they don't really care either way. Definately hope that it is not Sheldon's baby. Also anyone annoyed by the bad baby bump?

I heart Violet and Charlotte being friends. So cute. Charlotte needs to let loose a little and Violet needs a female that she can confide in, so it's perfect. I'm going to be really upset if Sheldon is the dad. He's just so...Ugh. Haha

Thought it was a good episode. But I totally agree that Noah is totally weird. very creepy. Addison needs to not go down that road. the show is really growing on me.
