Last week on “Private Practice,” we had arguably one of our favorite episodes of the entire season as we watched Sheldon secretly battle off cancer while at the same time fall in love with a terminally ill patient. Strangely, this episode ended up feeling really uplifting while simultaneous Tuesday night’s Charlotte-centric episode was beyond depressing. Not only did we have to spend most of the hour watcher her grow progressively worse over the course of the hour as she was both pregnant with two children and bedridden, but she had to do so while her other daughter was hanging on for dear life.
It took about 45 minutes for KaDee Strickland (who was absolutely brilliant in this episode) to start to truly break down the walls of anger, and it was at this very moment that she fully started to break down and break for her babies’ survival over her own. This was probably the first person over the course of the entire hour where she truly had the sympathy of those around her, including the nurses who were struggling to deal with her on a regular basis.
At this point, Charlotte finally came to her senses, and started to realize just how terrible she had been. She mended fences with the staff and her son, tried to set her nurse back up with Sam, and also learned that her daughter had made it through the latest operation fine. We needed a happy ending, and for us to feel as good as Charlotte did during some of these bizarre dancing introductions throughout the hour. She finally went into labor at the end of the episode, and before that happened she got a chance to see her other daughter.
Overall, did you enjoy this episode as much as the one revolving all around Sheldon? Be sure to share some of your thoughts below! If you want to check out some series finale spoilers pertaining to Addison, be sure to head on over to the link here.
