Private Practice Review: "Something Old, Something New"

at .

As a huge fan of Cooper and Charlotte, I was somewhat disappointed with last night’s episode of Private Practice, "Something Old, Something New."

Sure, Cooper and Charlotte are finally married now, but I just wanted to see much more than a runaway wedding to Vegas. Besides, we have been waiting since last season when they were first engaged.  

I get that the odds were against our newlyweds, but the wedding just felt like a letdown for me. I guess I’ve just been waiting to see her walk down the aisle, hear the organ play, and find out who’s on the receiving end of her tossed bouquet. They did seem so in love and happy on the plane, though, and that’s what counts.

The Big Day For Cooper and Charlotte

From disagreeable parents to a bickering practice, I did love that Cooper saw past all of this and told Charlotte: “All that matters is you and me. And the rest of them, they don’t have to agree or to like it or to like each other because this is not for them or about them. “

By the way, wasn’t Charlotte’s dress lovely? No, I’m not talking about the Southern traditional dress that’s been passed down for the past century in her family.

Regardless, of how they got married, they are married now! Just maybe, they can now get their shot at a happily ever after. Some happiness is definitely needed on Private Practice lately.

While some of our Oceanside Wellness doctors were torn between the future of the practice and protecting Violet, I knew where I firmly stood. I was actually glad that there was a possibility that Violet’s medical license might be suspended. I’m still crossing my fingers.

Violet acts unbelievably recklessly at times, and I do think she has crossed the line one too many times. In fact, why did Violet show up without an appointment to talk to the medical investigator? She said that she was just trying to tell her side of the story, but this is exactly what she did last week when showing up at Katie’s work.

Violet consistently put herself in danger with Katie, and now Oceanside Wellness is in jeopardy.

Why couldn’t Private Practice just end this episode by telling us what the verdict was in Violet’s trial? I’m hoping that this storyline isn’t dragged out like the Sam and Addie storyline.

By the way, it looks like they are through. How do you feel about that? For now, I’m just glad there was finally confirmation. It took long enough.

With Naomi back in the picture for now and by Fife’s side, I wonder if they’ll stay for the remaining episodes of this season. Also, why didn’t Sheldon bring Marla to the wedding?

And although Amelia made an awesome maid of honor, she seems more like a supporting character rather than a main character lately. Give this girl a storyline!

Bottom line, I really looked forward to this episode, but it just wasn’t what I expected. There are only two remaining episodes, and I’m hoping it will only get better. It just has to, right?

What did you think of “Something Borrowed, Something New”? What do you think will happen to Oceanside Wellness during the investigation? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments.
