Fall TV preview: Private Practice

Posted on

A twist in the season 4 premiere prevents us from saying anything about what happened after Addison (Kate Walsh) and Sam (Taye Diggs) hooked up in the finale. However, there’s no shroud of secrecy surrounding Violet (Amy Brenneman) and Pete (Tim Daly), who impulsively decide to tie the knot — strange, considering it was Charlotte (KaDee Strickland) and Cooper (Paul Adelstein) who got engaged in the finale. ”I really want to see what happens when Charlotte and Cooper try to plan a wedding,” explains creator Shonda Rhimes, ”whereas I felt like Pete and Violet have already been through so much together.” At least Naomi (Audra McDonald) will remain single. Meanwhile, one of last season’s biggest mysteries — what became of Dell’s (Chris Lowell) orphaned daughter, Betsey — will be addressed early on. Says Rhimes: ”What happens with Betsey is a question for an entire episode.” SEPT. 23
