PRIVATE PRACTICE “Home Again” Review


PRIVATE PRACTICE “Home Again” Season 4 Episode 14 – Man, there was just nothing about this episode that was easy or particularly fun to watch. Not that I’m saying I disliked it, just that it was kind of brutal and I found myself almost glad when it was over.

First of all, when I think this show can’t possibly come up with another version of an impossible choice, they find one that I hadn’t thought of yet. In the beginning it’s about whether or not to tell a grieving woman that her husband actually is a murderer. But after that it also becomes about that wife asking the wife of her husband’s victim to help keep her husband alive. I swear it just about made my head swim as I really did feel for both of them.

Finally there was Addison trying to keep everyone from knowing exactly how her mother had died and then giving in and telling the truth. I did like how Coop was the one who gave the advice to Sam that lead him to push her enough to eventually get it all out in the open. In the end it seemed to help all of them to heal, including her father and brother.

My favorite bits…

Sheldon’s deathrow prisoner admitting he committed the crime.

Agreeing with the guy that it was probably better that his wife and son hate him than hate the world, but oh man that still kinda broke my heart. Amazing how this show can actually make me feel somewhat bad for a murderer.

Everyone deciding to drop what they were doing to go be there for Addison. That was awesome.

Coop’s funny Thurston Howell III imitation.

The Captain asking how an entire room full of doctors had let his ex wife die. Ouch.

Sam catching Addison in the lie about how her mother died.

Charlotte finding out the truth about Addison’s mother and telling her to say whatever she wanted in her eulogy.

Addison walking in on Archer and Naomi in bed together. Oops!

Not really knowing what to think of Addison’s eulogy.

Coop giving Sam the advice on how to help Addison. Well if anyone would know how to help a woman through a tragedy, it would be him.

The captain trying to punch Pete. Yikes!

Totally agreeing with Pete when he told the Captain that there were no pills for grief, you just had to feel it. It sucks but I really think that’s true.

Sam pushing Addison to the point where she finally broke down. She so needed to do that.

Addison admitting to Archer that their mother took her own life.

Not being able to actually watch the execution.

Addison finally finding the right place to put Susan’s ashes.
