Is Cooper for real. Does he really resent Charlotte because he feels emasculated?
15 January 2010 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

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 Charlotte walked out for good.

The writers have taken a short break on developing the story between Violet and her son, but I would really love to know how they would spin that storyline. Pete and Violet didn't have screen time together, probably a ploy to keep the topic from being front view. I do admire how Pete wears fatherhood, he truly loves his son. Oh and no Sheldon (Yaah)!

I mean I love Private Practice, they needed this episode to resolve the tension between Charlotte and Cooper, also with Cooper and himself. I figure that Copper needs someone to tell him off, he is allowed to get away with so many things, it's a shame. I was happy they didn't pursue the Mark and Addison thing, they really didn't do them justice, their second chance wasn't worth the chance. I wonder if Mark would be able to father his grandchild, or would it be continued over at Grey's? As for other episodes I look forward to viewing more of Violet and Pete, less of Cooper, until things cool down and whether or not Addison tells Naomi the truth about Maya (why tell your mother's best friend girl).

Was Sam being the fatherly-brotherly type for Addison or the romantic-jealous type. I'm hoping it's the first.
