I'm happy Addison got married to Jake and had her happy ending, but was disappointed.


It looks to me like Shonda didn't know what to do with the finale. She was all out of ideas/stories and didn't care, so she made the finale all about Naomi, a character that left 2 seasons ago and hasn't been mentioned since then. Ridiculous. Naomi got the big twist, while the others really got nothing. As much as I love Audra, Naomi (happily married to Fife) should have just popped up for Addison's wedding and left. The rest of the show should have been about the others, not her. JMO.

I really enjoyed the finale it was a nice way to end the show.

I really loved that Violet's book is called Private Practice it's a nice salute to the show's title and what her life has been about the last 6 years.

I'm so glad that Naomi and Sam are together and having a baby I have always supported them together cause I believe they never stopped loving each other.

The two weddings was nice, it wasn't long ceremonies but they were sweet and short which was a nice touch.

Overall, I really did like this episode it was a nice way to end it.

I loved the finale. I got my endgame. I loved seeing Naomi again and I like that jake and addie wound up together along with charlotte and cooper who I never stopped supporting. I liked naomi and sam together a lot. It seems they always come back to each other somehow. It doesn't seem like anything else has worked. I liked that they got married and had a baby together. They never got over each other.

It's sad that it's over. I'm just glad it wasn't a whole hour of Jake. All the characters deserved to have screen time and they got it. I still think Addison would have been better off without Jake, imo.

I agree with everything you said....this episode seems a Naomi centric one no a series finale.
I would have love to see more about the lead character like Addison,CharCoop and Amelia( she was in only 2-3 scene) I know they all already happy but that doesn't mean we don't have to see them..even Addison beside the wedding all her scene were related to Sam and Naomi. Not even a finally scene with Henry. That's not fair!!!
The post that Shonda write in which describe all that amazing CharCoop moment that went cut made me even more mad...I really really don't understand why she cut them.
All the Addison and Jake fans and the CharCoop fans deserve better from this finale.
The last scene instead was reall beautiful with the whole group in the kitchen and then the elevator door closed as the last image.

I didn't know that there was a scene with Charlotte and Cooper that was cut. That's a shame.

Yeah,It's really a shame!!!
Shonda explain in a post that they have to cut some scenes because the episode was too long...I get that but I really don't understand why they cut all their moments.
There are at least 2 scenes that were cut:
-one where Violet offer to Charlotte and Cooper, Pete's room as a nursey and then a shoot of all the cooplets plus Henry and Lucas playing there.
-the second is a scene after Sam and Naomi wedding in which they book a room to have sex and then realize they're too tired for it and decide to watch a movie and slept. Then Charlotte said to him: "I never love you more".
I wish we have could seen these,because both seems really nice moments,:,( it's really unfair for all the charcoop fan...I hope at least they put them on the dvd.

Those scenes sound nice. It's a shame the finale couldn't be a two hour long episode.

I have to say it was kind of weak for series finale. I'm kind of disappointed. Too much Naomi and too much Sam. It was in fact Sam/Naomi reconciliation tirade. And they cut out the best scenes to make room for this? But whatever. Those who i wanted to get happy ending, got it and that's all that matters.

I have to say I loved the finale.. just three things I hated..

1. I expected a juicy moment of Charlotte and Cooper like the old days.. obviously it was cut
2. I HATED that Stephanie got hurt again..
3. I looooove that Sam and Nae are bacj together, but the baby was waaaaay too much... because all of a sudden Sam is all over for that baby??? please..


Other than that I loved Shelon's speech to Miranda (btw I would never have thought he's supposed to be 56.)
And I loved how Charlotte loves her babies
and I love the title of Violet's book.. aaand the Addie speech for Nae's wedding
