Private Practice 'Yours, Mine and Ours' Review

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.

I was surprised to see Katie reprise her role in the finale installment. Her case was dismissed in What Women Want and her reprisal came as a big shocker.
From the moment she became literally obsessed with Violet's grown baby and began touching her belly, I knew she crossed a professional line along with a sane line there.
She was just too happy. (Is there such a thing) Telling Pete everything was okay, she's accepted that it was her baby's time and the real factor was that she created life.
Things were far from perfect with her, because if she was so fine why did she keep going back for therapy?
Violet's instincts about the highly spirited Katie was correct, but Pete couldn't agree to administrating Katie to a hospital. Sadly, that was to Violet's demise. When Katie showed up at her home claiming her true motives, stating that Violet had her child, that she stole her baby from her and taking out utensils she claimed to have bought online, Violet knew her fate.

Katie wasn't a doctor, so how did she know she wasn't going to kill the baby with that stunt? Did she even care? She was sure sane enough to realize the audacity of the situation even when she rendered Violet paralyzed from the neck down. Couldn't she have waited until the baby was born? At least she wouldn't have blood on her hands that way.

Tensions built up when Cooper was at the door, ready to catch the crazy rebel in action. Only to have Cooper pull out at the last minute unaware of the real crisis on his hands.
Charlotte pulled Cooper from a devastating situation unknown at the time, but she seemed like she needed to grow up. Crying because she lost her job-Charlotte!

I kept wondering, who else could get to Violet in time or even whether or not the drug would ware off. Then I watched the clock and it was nearing the last few minutes of the show and I knew they would keep us in agony awaiting the next season. Typical.

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!
Morgan said she saw the way they looked at each other and hysterically rambled on about them sleeping together. I didn't really blame her she was the wife, a wife just knows when their husband is sleeping with another woman physically or in thought.
It also caused Addison and Noah to face their relationship head on.
First they had 'the talk'. They were going to be together no matter what... wait hold up-

To Addison:
His wife is having complications with her child and you are trying to get with your patient's husband!

To Noah:
Your wife is pregnant with your child and is having complications and you are trying to get with her doctor!

Two sentences said completely differently relating to each character. Mainly pointed out because I do not know Noah that well, but Addison flat out disappointed me with that almost-sex scene. I figured most, that entire scene was rushed for the finale. That entire relationship between Addison and Noah was rushed in the end and it disgusted to a point where I can't stomach them anymore.

On a calmer note...
Dell got Betsy back, but not with a so much clean Heather who was like junkie needing her next fix.
What happened with her job? Was there even a job for her?
She was sure willing to trade her daughter in for money, so she was clearly out-of-it.
This was an interesting turn in Dell's storyline as I've mentioned on previous occasions, Dell's story lines were very dull.

Naomi was offered Charlotte's job, by Bill Buchanan :) Just kidding. William White.
That explains why Charlotte was crying and pulled Cooper away for boyfriend time.

Well it was a good thing for that Katie storyline, for that cliffhanger huh...
Okay they pulled it off, I'm interested. So does Violet live to see the next season?
