Private Practice Rundown: Episode 11, "Contamination"

Private Practice is back and is ripped from the headlines! You've almost certainly noticed the heated debate taking place over the correlation between the immunization of children and autism (both sides have celebrity voices attached to their cause). It's highly controversial, super emotional, and extremely personal to moms especially, which means it was probably just begging for another preachy prime time drama to wade into the fray.

Anyway, despite some clunky, public service-y lines related to the autism (Sam: "CDC is clear, vaccination saves lives. End of story."), this episode on the whole is pretty absorbing and entertaining especially because everyone appears to be friends again. Or, in the case of Violet and Pete, super duper close sexy-time friends. Ready to chat about it?

So! The episode opens with - what else? - sex! Between Violet and Pete. This has got to be some kind of record, right? How many episodes in a row can the opening scene involve sex? I'm not necessarily complaining - it's just a little desperate, no? Regardless, Violet and Pete are still going at it and decide to keep things loose without much commitment. Except once Cooper takes Violet seriously that she is, in fact, sleeping with Pete, he freaks out ("Pete is the anti-relationship! Pete is the ruiner of relationships!") and blabs this to the whole office. Everyone stops by to tell Violet what a cad Pete is and to be careful, just as Pete (with some input from Addison) decides that he might want to try the whole relationship thing out with her. Violet pretty much disses him - and wisely so I think. She points out that they started hooking up while Pete had another girlfriend. I think he's going to have to prove his worth.
