Just need a bit of 'Finishing' touches, but okay.
13 March 2009 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Finishing went out with a unconvincing "Finishing" from Addison.

No pun intended, but Kate Walsh (Addison Montgomery) always plays her role as Addison well. Of course Addison was the reason I started watching Private Practice. Still I liked this installment, but there were a few unpolished scenes.

SPOILERS Charlotte and Cooper's relationship is just too sappy. The only thing between them is Charlotte's constant crying outbursts "Stop Loving Me!" and Cooper's reassuring "I will not stop Loving You!".

It's all good, but the sappiness is just not meant for this pair, who lost the heat and chemistry they shared before they became so committed to loving each other. I actually miss the Charlotte with the whip, that used to make me laugh.

Pete and Sheldon are becoming overshadowing, no mean to favor one over the other, but Sheldon's role is being overused. I actually liked Sheldon when he didn't go all sex-crazy with Violet. I have no idea who to feel sorry for.

Violet who has the constant voices of Pete and Sheldon hassling her to get a paternity test. She lives with Cooper (who she calls her best friend) and has him speaking to her tummy, giving him more responsibility than he should have.

Sheldon who once admitted that he could not ever have a girl like Violet, but when they actually end up together, he ends up a possible father to Violet's child and has to endure another man look after her.

Pete, who once lit a flame between him and Violet causing him to lose his old flame; Meg and is caught in the same problem Sheldon has, well the latter half.

Or wait what about Cooper, he is living with his best friend, taking care of the child that could be for two different men and at the same time he wants his girlfriend to be okay with it and we are talking about Charlotte.

This is turning into a soap opera. I guess Cooper takes the cake.

Private Practice needs to straighten out that part of the show, or pretty soon things would be in knots.

The 'one month later' gap was a new take for the series. It is the quickest way to cut a long story short.

All of the cases were compelling and the reveal that the doctor was Addison's patient's husband was a little surprising. I found myself wondering how come I didn't catch on to it sooner.

The fact that there were no names between them and as soon as he found out Addison's name, he bailed.

"Oh wait, she's my wife's doctor" probably crossed his mind and even though his wife just had a baby, he still tries to come one to Addison. I wonder if Addison learnt anything from the Derek-Mark triangle she had. Then again she does get to play Mark's role in it. Do you think she would do it? She did struggle to answer his Finishing or Starting question.

Overall, a few tweaks and touch-ups needed, but Private Practice still manages to pull off another good episode.
