Addison continued her struggle between the men in her life. Her heart and head are never in the same place. She keeps giving Sam a chance but the viewers, myself included just don't feel it. Sam and Addison don't want the same things. Addison's journey to have a baby was beautiful and she finally got what she wanted. She should choose Jake and be happy with him and baby Henry.
Sam should just leave the practice and find happiness elsewhere. His character has become irritating. His story arc with his bipolar sister was excellently written and acted but the finale once again made me dislike Sam.
Pete & Violet: OH MY GOD! They made Pete annoying, the viewer is turned off by him every time he argues with Violet. Violet, too has not done anything worth mentioning this season besides hooking up with a paramedic. Now that Tim Daly has been fired from the show, hopefully Violet divorces Pete and just concentrates on raising Lucas.
Sheldon once again was hugely underused, Brian Benben is a terrific actor. Hopefully he is well used next season. A hookup with Amelia would not hurt.
Amelia was the star this season. Her story arcs were beautifully heartbreaking this season. From her drug addiction to her donating her brainless baby's organs, she was a rockstar. Caterina Scorsone deserves an Emmy!
CharCoop: The most loveable characters on the show. As opposite of what I initially thought, I grew to love Erica and Mason as characters. Shonda really knows how play with heart strings. Erica's death brought me to tears. Mason is a great addition to the show. Charlotte has grown so much, I just love her. Here's hoping for a CharCoop baby next season.
Jake's back story, the dead drug addict wife was nice and his chemistry with Addie is hot.
CharCoop (Mason/Erica), Amelia's addiction and Addison's baby hunt were the the primary focus of this season and thank God for that.
If the next season is really the last, I hope Naomi returns for a few episodes.
I really enjoyed Amelia's storyline this year as they brought her character more into focus and her problem(s) with addiction. Her story-line was a real tear-jerker.
There were a lot of rules and laws broken this season by the different doctors, which was heartbreaking as a lot of them were questioning their own morality and the decisions they had to make was between doing what the law said is 'right' and what your heart says is 'right'.
If you like the show, this is a definite see!!
YEP do yourself a favor and BUY all the series and go on this remarkable journey with the amazing cast of Private Practice!!
I was pleasantly surprised with the quality and depth of relationships that has evolved. Addison (Kate Walsh) is particularly appealing in her struggles in her personal life whilst carrying on her demanding medical career. Benjamin Bratt's introduction into the series really added to it. Great seeing him play this more serious role.
Most of the other characters and their intermingled profession/personal lives are all very watchable and believable.
I thoroughly enjoyed it and will look out for the next season.

Season 5 continues the mix - the Practice's dysfunctional staff again with problems of relationships (Addison with Sam, Pete with Violet), all sometimes heatedly disagreeing on such fraught subjects as euthanasia, patient confidentiality, organ donations - drug addiction to become a major concern.
This is a strong season for Cooper and Charlotte, he suddenly confronted by an eight year old son he never knew he had. (Griffin Gluck as Mason is excellent, tissues needed for some of his scenes.)
Babies are inevitably much in evidence. The show's great irony is that central character Addison delivers so many but seems unable to have one of her own. (The 22 episodes are framed by visits to her therapist.)
Modest bonuses, with a gag reel enhanced by newcomer Benjamin Bratt floored by a door. Some may find the music track intrusive, especially if they prefer to hear what people are saying.
Overall there remains plenty to please. The show not only entertains, but raises issues that stimulate discussion - this very much to the good.
fast delivery, before estimated time! The box was in great shape as were the dvd's.
