'Private Practice' Recap: Sophie's Husband's Choice

Somehow, when I was trying not to pay attention, this show went and got ... well, let's say it was decent. First off, they limited Violet and Charlotte to about one total minute of screen time -- they drank martinis, is all -- sparing us the screeching and whining we usually have to endure from the Witches of Eastwick. And, I may die of shock over this, but I sort of love Sam and Addison, who come together in a bigger way this week, and then don't. So, Sam's dealing with the Maya pregnancy all by himself since Naomi's gone and become the most abhorrent character on the show (Violet is ever-so-thankful). Thing is, Dink wants to marry Maya, and his mom (Rosanna Arquette, looking light-years better than she did on What About Brian? ) is totally okay with this. Sam isn't, so he gets himself good and drunk, then heads to Addison's and kisses her.

She makes him stop, but the next day they talk about it and decide it was hot and they want to try again. But they're interrupted by Sheldon, calling Sam into therapy with Violet and Naomi. Then Addison sort of vaguely asks Naomi what about her and Sam, and Naomi cracks up, saying what we've all been thinking: "If you slept with your husband's best friend, and your best friend's husband? You'd be, like, the worst person ever." Addison corners Sheldon and asks him, and he's wishy-washy, but in the end, when Sam boldly suggests they have sex, she says no. She wants "cheater" to be something that described her in the past, and sleeping with her best friend's ex is some kind of cheating. She's a stronger woman than I am, though, because ... have you seen Taye Diggs? Together, this time, they finally have some chemistry, too. It has to happen now, y'all. They're just too pretty for it not to.
