Friends and Lovers

Triangles - Cooper and Sheldon fight over Charlotte, but work together for their schizophrenic patient. Addison and Vanessa fight over a pregnant patient, but it's mostly about Sam.

What They Can't Have

Fear of Flying - Charlotte wants Cooper, but won't admit it. Cooper doesn't want Charlotte, probably until he catches her sleeping with Sheldon. Pete and Addison want Violet and Sam, but can't have them. Sam wants Addison, but is with her stand-in Vanessa instead. Fife wants Naomi, but she's dating William. Turns out Naomi wants Fife, too, but William's her boss so she can't just dump him. And our patients of the week want each other, but immigration and sperm allergies stand in the way. And one little patient just wants to fly, but is too scared.

Grown-Ups

Love Bites - Almost everyone acts like an adult in this episode: Dell moves on; Pete and Addison sleep together (although they can't move on); Sam plans a wedding (and tries to move on); Cooper and Charlotte, who clearly will never move on, bicker but it's not hateful; Naomi offers Sam a little help and moves on with her rich boss; and Violet... well, Violet is stuck, but at least she doesn't want to be.

Parental Guidance

Another Second Chance - Violet helps a hoarder kick her habit and keep her son; Addison saves Sloan's daughter, Sloan Sloan, and her unborn child; and Naomi offers Dell good advice on getting his daughter's forgiveness but can't seem to get along with her own, who's pregnant but not telling her mom and dad.

Dysfunctional Families

Blowups - Dell's wife's meth lab kills her and puts their daughter in the hospital, which is almost overshadowed by what Addison considers to be childhood "trauma" -- her parents loving her enough to keep what they do in the bedroom(s) from interfering with their family.

And the Winner is ... Cooper Freedman

Sins of the Father - Coop goes to jail and gets beaten up, but he still comes out looking better than anyone else in this episode -- partly because he's smart and wonderful, but also because so many of the other characters on this show suck.

The Hard Part - Have you heard that this show is about this woman who can do anything she wants, and we're still expected to root for her?! She can deliver babies in wrecked cars in the bottom of a canyon and make out with her best friend's husband all in the same episode.

Regret and Recovery

The Way We Were - It's a month later and everyone's still trying to move on, though not too productively. Violet has "crazy head," Cooper's still blaming himself, Addison and Sam can't forgive Nae, Charlotte's still heartless, and Pete's enabling Violet. Dell's not even back at work, which means he's not recovered yet either. For doctors, these people sure suck at getting better.

(Sort of) Birth And (Sort of) Death In the Same Episode

A Death In The Family - There's a funeral from the past and a baby who isn't exactly "born." But the most shocking thing of all is that's it's not all about Addison (though she tries like hell to make it be).

Another pregnant lady's already lost her baby, but loves it far too much to let the doctors remove the fetus. Oh, yes, the crazy is intact this week, but somehow this episode is pretty good anyway.

Nothing Really Changes

Ex-Life - Charlotte's still whining. Cooper's still trying to win her over. Violet's still thinking about no one but herself. Dell still doesn't matter. Archer's still an ass, according to Derek. And it turns out Sam (probably) still loves Naomi. Addison and Derek are still bickering like an old married couple and, of course, Bailey's still the smartest, most reasonable person on any episode -- even when it's not her show.

You Thought There Was a Crossover?

Acceptance - Turns out this show and Grey's won't really crossover until next week. This week was all about setting that up. And something about a fetus, a baby, and a little girl. Oh, and this might be the first episode in the history of this show in which no one has sex. Which might be a good thing, because it was a pretty good episode.

Pregnant Without Purpose

Second Chances - Violet's still pregnant, and not telling either possible father. But, hey, at least she's letting it affect her work as a therapist. Charlotte's still mad at Cooper, despite his many unnecessary apologies. Addison's still self-absorbed and her brother, Archer, is still an ass. Fortunately for us, though, Sam and Naomi are still hot, and they're getting naked a lot in this episode. But not with each other.
