Anybody else up to date with PP?  How obvious is the storyline with Addison? She has to be pregnant right?  That entire episode was leading up to it, in fact I thought we would see her taking a test at the end to leave us with a 'cliff hanger'.

And is Naomi leaving?  What is going on there?

Yeah I was waiting for her to take a test too...

That would be a surprise because in the introducing episode Naomi tells Addison "Your F.S.H. Level is high. Well, they're high this month. We can do, uh, ovarian stimulation. And your antral follicle count is only two."
And Addison gives up on having IVF - doesn't this mean she has no eggs?
How can she have a surprise pregnancy? I realise it's TV but Shonda usually is based in reality.

I know, but they seem to be ignoring that and going with the 'it's a miracle' type of thing instead.  I have seen a trailer for next week that leads you to believe she is pregnant but who knows maybe it is all a red herring and it is looking so obvious because it is something else.

I have not watched the latest episode yet (had to watch Glee last night instead) but will be watching tonight. Naomi is meant to be leaving but will be making quiet a few guest appearances I think she will be moving away with the daughter. With Addision I would not be surprised if she is pregnant but saying that the next episode I think is a cross over with Greys Anatomy but could be wrong.
The Facebook page normally has some good things on it.

Hadn't realised it was on as I assumed it would come back at the same time as Grey's Anatomy. Anyway, just watched it. Cried so much for those poor parents.

Not sure about the Addison thing. If you hadn't mentioned it I wouldn't have thought anything of it.

Addison was drinking a glass of red wine at the end. I know some people still have the occassional glass of wine in pregnancy, but do you think she would be drinking if she were pregnant?

If she's pregnant, I don't think she knows yet.

Hi Ladies,
Id love to watch ahead with the US episodes. What site do you use? Ive tried you tube but cant get more than 6-7 mins of an episode.

Yay exciting original.gif

#12 Scootaloo

Posted 26 March 2011 - 06:29 AM

Hmmmm, what did everyone think?  Is she not pregnant then?  Or is all the lead up to her breaking up with Sam to have a baby (adopt, maybe?) on her own. I wanted her to pregnant but it was a little too obvious I guess.

What did you think of Violet's photo in her book?

I don't know what the PP's use but my DH downloads from Isohunt using Vuze I think it's called....although he left out episode 13 when Addison's mother died....Very annoying!!

hi ladies. Im not a regular watcher, so missed a bit but am dying to know who attacked the blonde and why, and what does addison know about it that she isnt allowed to tell?

#15 trina-p

Posted 28 March 2011 - 02:04 PM

This is the US pace discussion thread but - Charlotte was attacked in her office by a patient she brushed off. She was raped and Addison did a rape kit and put it in the fridge with the name Jane Doe until Charlotte was ready to go to the police.
Charlotte couldn't avoid telling people she was attacked (she was found battered and bruised in the supply cupboard by Pete) but for a while only Addison knew about the rape.

At the same time Sheldon was counselling a man who'd been arrested covered in blood and after he found out about Charlotte put two and two together and encouraged her to go to the police and identify him out of a line up.

Thanks for that info. I thought it could have been that she was raped.


#17 ~Delilah~

Posted 29 March 2011 - 03:32 PM

Addison's not pregnant but it was an odd background story to throw in or maybe it was done because her and Sam are about to head their separate ways as her urge for a baby is strong.

Naomi seems to be leaving the show for parts unknown.

Well she broke GA but she didn't break PP

Trina-p, you are quick off the mark on both shows.  I am waiting impatiently for both to DL now as you have gotten me curious.

thoughts in white I am just so happy that Betsy is with Naomi which is where she should have gone in the first place. Addison and Violet should have had some kind of share care for Betsy until Naomi got back from Africa -- they didn't even call her and tell her at the time it was just very wrong and such a horrible thing to have done to Dell. And I can't believe Violet never stayed in touch after the song and dance she did with Pete and the rest of them.

I was also happy to see Naomi and Addison be friends again. I think the writing tonight (that scene in the scrub room before the surgery) was really honest & brave.

Did anyone see a preview for next week - wow


#25 Scootaloo

Posted 14 May 2011 - 07:19 PM

I agree, the Betsy storyline was one that def needed revisiting so I was glad for that.

So next week is the finale?  I doubt very much they will dissolve the practice so will be interesting to watch and see how it pans out.

I didn't like the abortion storyline this week, but those sorts of things touch my heart so it hit a bit close to home, it did lead to the nice ending for Addison and Naomi though so I guess that was good.

All in all a good ep, can't wait for next week.

Jen
