'Private Practice' Recap: What a Pussycat!

This episode is all over the map, with about 37 different storylines and almost not connection between any of them. First up is Addison. She has a patient, Lily, who's dying of ovarian cancer. Lily's okay with it, except that she can't leave Milo, her cat. When Addison steps up to cat-sit while she has treatment, Lily's finally at peace knowing Addison will keep Milo. Lily's oncologist asks Addison out and she says yes, but we never get to see the coffee date. And, in the end, Addison and Sam toast to crazy cat ladies/Cat Woman. They're sort of the same thing.

Next up are Pete and Violet, who are dealing with a depressed woman and her fiancée. Violet recommends electroshock therapy, which causes her to forget her fiancée completely. She remembers every other detail of her life, though, so Violet thinks something bad must have happened involving the fiancée. Turns out it didn't, and she's just pretending not to remember him so he'll go away, because he's too nice. Violet and Pete go along with her to see him, and give the fiancée a speech about letting go. And how happy she is now makes it seem that we (and Pete) were supposed to take it to mean Pete and Violet are over. Oh, he's better off anyway.
