Drugs are bad, y'all! I like how apparently Amelia has gone from taking her friend's pills to smoking oxycontin and shooting IV drugs in the space of 2 episodes (did they miss any drugs she could take in a different way)? And yet it was too shockingly shocking to show on TV the actual method by which you smoke oxy off a piece of foil. (For that you need to watch actual Intervention!)

Other than that, there are aspects of this goofy show I like. I like that they have been showing Addison going to therapy in a totally matter-of-fact way, though this plan of "I'm going to have a baby that my boyfriend explicitly will not raise at all but he still wants to be my boyfriend" thing is a little odd.

Anyone else watching?

Yup... Liked the idea of the intervention episode but I was more worried about the interventionists son than Amelia ( although the ending was well done)

I have no idea why I am still watching this show. But I love Charlotte and Cooper together, which means Shonda will inevitably blow them up for no reason. They've made this surprise son/cancer story line work for me. Actually, they're the only part of the show that really works for me at all.

I actually like the whole story with violet and Pete's marriage I think it does reflect real life, but I never really like violets character..

I used to really like Violet/Pete and started watching the show for Tim Daly, but Pete has been such a raging jackhole all season.

Pete has McDreamy Disease, I think, where the dude acts like a total ass but I suspect we are still supposed to root for him as the best mate for the woman in question. I wonder sometimes about Shonda. (Although Violet is also kind of an asshole often.) I do love Cooper and Charlotte.

My prediction is that Addison is going to be magically knocked up by Sam after they got together a couple of weeks ago.

So has Amelia become the new punching bag now that Shonda has evidently lost interest in messing with Meredith on Grey's? I can't imagine what it's like for the actress, who is pregnant in real life, working on a storyline where her baby is doomed.

I also suspect this is heading for a Moral and Legal Tussle about donating an anencephalic baby's organs. (Which I am strongly in favor of, but I believe some states won't let you do it since no brain = no criteria for "brain death" -- not sure if California is one of those.)

Oh Pete. You suck.

Is it even worth it to see the new and final season?

Sure -- it at least will be short and merciful.

Actually, I thought tonight's episode was pretty good, and not as hamhanded with the Ethical! Dilemmas! as it usually is.
