Miracle of Miracles

Pulling the Plug - An entire Private Practice episode without a single dead baby? What gives? But since your other choice was The Marriage Ref you are still a winner.

What They Can't Have

Fear of Flying - Charlotte wants Cooper, but won't admit it. Cooper doesn't want Charlotte, probably until he catches her sleeping with Sheldon. Pete and Addison want Violet and Sam, but can't have them. Sam wants Addison, but is with her stand-in Vanessa instead. Fife wants Naomi, but she's dating William. Turns out Naomi wants Fife, too, but William's her boss so she can't just dump him. And our patients of the week want each other, but immigration and sperm allergies stand in the way. And one little patient just wants to fly, but is too scared.

Grown-Ups

Love Bites - Almost everyone acts like an adult in this episode: Dell moves on; Pete and Addison sleep together (although they can't move on); Sam plans a wedding (and tries to move on); Cooper and Charlotte, who clearly will never move on, bicker but it's not hateful; Naomi offers Sam a little help and moves on with her rich boss; and Violet... well, Violet is stuck, but at least she doesn't want to be.

Women Are Crazy

Best Laid Plans - You know how Addison is basically a mental case? Well, there are at least three women in this episode who surpass her level of insanity.

Parental Guidance

Another Second Chance - Violet helps a hoarder kick her habit and keep her son; Addison saves Sloan's daughter, Sloan Sloan, and her unborn child; and Naomi offers Dell good advice on getting his daughter's forgiveness but can't seem to get along with her own, who's pregnant but not telling her mom and dad.

Dysfunctional Families

Blowups - Dell's wife's meth lab kills her and puts their daughter in the hospital, which is almost overshadowed by what Addison considers to be childhood "trauma" -- her parents loving her enough to keep what they do in the bedroom(s) from interfering with their family.

Two Dunces and a Dink

And the Winner is ... Cooper Freedman

Sins of the Father - Coop goes to jail and gets beaten up, but he still comes out looking better than anyone else in this episode -- partly because he's smart and wonderful, but also because so many of the other characters on this show suck.

The Amazing Addison

The Hard Part - Have you heard that this show is about this woman who can do anything she wants, and we're still expected to root for her?! She can deliver babies in wrecked cars in the bottom of a canyon and make out with her best friend's husband all in the same episode.

"How Come All Anybody Thinks About Is Sex?"

Right Here, Right Now - Bailey asks that question of Addison, and while we don't get an answer, I'm glad someone brought it up. While she's at it, Bailey also calls Addison out on her bullshit with Noah and Squeaky, and almost makes out with Sam.

Regret and Recovery

The Way We Were - It's a month later and everyone's still trying to move on, though not too productively. Violet has "crazy head," Cooper's still blaming himself, Addison and Sam can't forgive Nae, Charlotte's still heartless, and Pete's enabling Violet. Dell's not even back at work, which means he's not recovered yet either. For doctors, these people sure suck at getting better.

(Sort of) Birth And (Sort of) Death In the Same Episode

A Death In The Family - There's a funeral from the past and a baby who isn't exactly "born." But the most shocking thing of all is that's it's not all about Addison (though she tries like hell to make it be).

Let Them Eat Cake

Can Baby Say "Malpractice"?

In Which Sam Receives An Unexpected Visitor - Remember that classic episode of The Dick Van Dyke Show where Rob thought they brought home the wrong baby from the hospital? Well, this is kind of like that, but at the end, instead of a huge laugh, there's just crushing tragedy. Luckily we have a puke-related subplot, and a potentially contagious stripper, for comic relief!
