If you remember in the Private Practice: Season Five season finale, Sam (Taye Diggs) proposed to Addison (Kate Walsh) just after she had decided to see Jake (Benjamin Bratt), leaving us all wondering what she decided. After making us wait through the first agonizing few minutes, we find out that she is now with Jake, which is what I was really hoping would happen, but not what I expected for sure! Jake just seems like a much better match for Addison to me. Given that Sam is her best friend, Naomiís (Audra McDonald) ex-husband, relationships between them would always have been slightly strained. Granted, Jake comes with his own share of problems for her to discover, but if you truly love someone, you can get past those. Addison and Jake are a tough couple and hopefully the perfect parents for Henry. Speaking of Sam, he is seeing a new woman, Stephanie (Justina Machado), a labor and delivery nurse at the hospital. I really like Stephanie. Sheís kind and sweet and patient enough to even deal with Charlotte (KaDee Strickland) when she has to be hospitalized, but in a world like this one, kind and sweet usually doesn't get you anywhere, so itís going to be difficult for her to hold onto a man like Sam with his past always popping up.

In Season Five also, Pete (Tim Daly) was arrested for pulling the plug on a patient at the request of his boyfriend over the wishes of the patientís estranged father. Pete and Violet (Amy Brenneman) reconciled though, which is good for their family. Violet is very optimistic about the trial, but when Pete doesnít show up on the day of court, that really throws things into a loop. It turns out that Pete had a heart attack while out on a run and is dead. I didnít expect them to kill off a character like that without any built-up drama, but they did. This means that you will not see Pete in Private Practice: The Complete Sixth and Final Season.

Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) has made it to one year sober thanks to AA and Sheldonís (Brian Benben) support. Thatís no small feat considering all she went through with her pregnancy. I am amazed at the transformation, but that doesnít mean that things are easy for her. When a new doctor, Dr. James Peterson (Matt Long), joins staff at St. Ambrose, he immediately has eyes for the stubborn Amelia. Given all sheís been through, itís not going to be easy to get close to her, but he is determined nonetheless. Sheldon starts out the season seeing his ex-wife Lauren. Itís a long distance thing though, so there is nothing serious for now. He gets some disturbing news when Sam does a test for cancer. Sheldonís life is going to change forever, but sometimes even bad changes bring good things to your life.

In some very shocking news, Charlotte is pregnant, with triplets! Anytime you have a multiple pregnancy though, there are serious risks. Charlotte and Cooper (Paul Adelstein) are going to have a lot to deal with. The hospital is going to find out how difficult of a patient Charlotte can be and the board is going to learn that they really donít want to cross her! I love their son. Mason (Griffin Gluck) is a really amazing kid and heís going to be a wonderful big brother.

The only special features on the DVD are Deleted Scenes and Bloopers, which I guess makes sense given that it is only a 13 episode half-season to conclude the series correctly. I love it when the series finale actually wraps a series up and ties up more or less all the loose ends. It just feels more complete and very satisfactory. Private Practice concludes with a perfect finale that will leave you feeling satisfied. If youíre a fan of the show, youíre going to want to pick up this final season to complete your collection and give yourself a sense of finality for a great series.
