Okay, Private Practice, no. This is not okay. You have never made me angry until today. I don't usually post while something is airing, but I am just so pissed off about this I have to.

The woman was not conscious. Her husband had sex with her. That is rape. Period. End of story. This is a case of a clear right and wrong. There is no debate to be had. The woman could not consent to sex. Having Sam defend him (and yes he was defending him, and so were the others besides Addison), was not okay. I don't care how deluded the man was. He wasn't insane, and he knew what he was doing. It was rape. The man should be in prison. End of story. Stop painting her as irrational when she's right. I wouldn't want to sleep with a man who was defending a rapist either.

Edit: Having gotten to the end of the episode, my point still stands. Yes, the man needed therapy, but that does not mean he should not have been in prison or maybe a secure mental ward or something. He at least needed to be arrested and have a trial. Simple therapy is not enough. He raped his wife (or his wife's body since she most likely wasn't in there anymore).

Also, rape is a big deal to me. It is one of those things that is just clear-cut. And the fact that Sam and several others didn't see it that way just made me angry. I can see maybe being a little less clear about it since the guy did have some mental issues, but for Sam to outright insist that Addison was wrong just angered me.

No, I get that, definitely. What surprised me is that they all assumed it was some random person who had done this ... I knew basically right away that it was him, just by how he reacted.

Also, I meant to ask ... was there a promo after the show? They never air them for PP here.

Yes, there was a promo, at least here. It looks like it is going to be a good episode. They clearly are going to really work with this storyline and show how it effects everyone. Cooper made me want to cry, even just in the preview.

Thanks :)

Because they don't air them here, and they're obviously not posted online right away, I always forget to go looking for them before the next episode.
