Private Practice preview: Can't Find My Way Back Home
Oceanside Wellness continues to rally behind Charlotte, who is still traumatized by her violent sexual assault; while Pete's past comes back to haunt him on Private Practice tonight.
After the violent assault a few weeks back on Private Practice, Charlotte (KaDee Strickland) still isn't herself yet. The infamously tough cookie has crumbled and her colleagues are desperate to help put her back together.
"Because of the type of person she is, very in control, very direct, very together, it really turns her world upside down, and she doesn't really know how to even comprehend what has happened to her or how to process it," Strickland said.
"You watch all of the softening that I believe Charlotte's been doing this season get built back up. You see that armor go back on her, but you also see different colors of her than we've ever been allowed to see because there's never been a reason to show them."
When Charlotte's attacker is found, she may not be able to bring herself to face him or take legal steps. Refusing to let him go unpunished, her friends team up to figure out how they can pursue criminal charges against him before he strikes again.
Meanwhile, on the heels of the reveal that Pete's (Tim Daly) family is prison trash, his long lost family comes knocking. His estranged brother shows up to ask him to help their dying mother get out of prison.
Considering how he feels about the murderess, it's going to take a lot of convincing. With Academy Award winner Louise Fletcher (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) playing Pete's mom, this story is sure to get tense.
The Private Practice drama starts at 10:01 pm on Thursday, November 18 on ABC, after a new episode of Grey's Anatomy.
