Copy of TO Private Practice S6 DVD_CITY_E1


This practice has shut down.

This Grey’s Anatomy spin-off from Shonda Rhimes ran out of impetus one season ago. But Rhimes had to eke out an ending that would give fans closure.

Plunging once again into the complicated lives of our favourite characters at Seaside Health and Wellness, everyone is reeling from Pete’s (Tim Daly) death caused by a heart attack while out jogging.

Now to catch up with where everyone else is: A bolshie Charlotte (KaDee Strickland) finds her life thrown into a tailspin when she learns that she is pregnant…with triplets. And this is just as she has adjusted to having Cooper’s son in their lives. Meanwhile Cooper (Paul Adelstein) couldn’t be happier with the news, though his wife’s mood swings do test his patience.

While dealing with the fact that he has prostate cancer, Sheldon (Brian Benben) unwittingly finds love too.

In season five, Benjamin Bratt upped the hunk ante as Jake Reilly, the new fertility specialist and Addison Montgomery’s (Kate Walsh) love interest. While their romance is still going strong – it does jump through a few hoops when Jake’s past action threatens Henry’s adoption process.

As for where that leaves Amelia (Caterina Scorsone), well, there is a new beefcake – Matt Long as James Peterson, the new ER attending, who helps her move past the trauma of losing her baby and being an addict. And in an interesting twist, Naomi (Audra McDonald) makes a cameo. Let’s just say that her and Sam (Taye Diggs) have some unfinished business.

Along with the new arrivals for Charlotte and Cooper, there’s also a surprise wedding on the cards.

Be warned: the final instalment of Private Practice provides an emotional fix for fans, but it isn’t the usual rollercoaster affair. After all, the creative wells did run dry for Rhimes.
