Tv Season Info

The fifth season of this medical drama finds Addison (Kate Walsh) desperately wanting a child. She makes an appointment with a fertility specialist, and he turns out to be Jake Reilly (Benjamin Bratt), the man with whom she previously flirted and almost went to Fiji. Addison is in for another surprise when Jake interviews for a position at Oceanside Wellness Center and gets hired. As Addison tries to become a parent, Cooper (Paul Adelstein) finds out that he already is one: He has a young son he didn't know about from a previous relationship. Meanwhile, Pete (Time Daly) survives a heart attack, but he struggles with his anger afterward and keeps lashing out by yelling at Violet (Amy Brenneman). Pete's not alone in battling personal demons: Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) begins using drugs and alcohol again and grows close to a fellow addict.

Critic Reviews for Private Practice: Season 5

All Critics (3)

Longtime viewers... were promised that a payoff five years in the making was coming, that "major news... happy news" was on the way. And boom, at the close of the show's spring premiere... debut, there it was, thank Judi.

Overall, I thought that "God Laughs" was a great way to kick off what appears to be an exciting year for our favorite doctors. I'm ecstatic about the developments for this season and especially for our girl, Addie.

Grey's Anatomy is good at the shocking, jaw dropping season finales, and Private Practice can really dish out the sad, gut wrenching deaths.
