From Shonda Rhimes, the Golden Globe-winning creator of Grey’s Anatomy comes a story about finding a way to begin the rest of your life.
Addison Forbes Montgomery (Kate Walsh) is a renowned surgeon. Having left behind Seattle Grace Hospital, a broken marriage with Derek “McDreamy” Shepherd, and her torn relationship with Mark “McSteamy” Sloan, Addison moves to Los Angeles for sunnier weather and happier possibilities — where Addison settles at the Oceanside Wellness Center; reuniting with friends from medical school.
2×01: “A Family Thing” – At Oceanside Wellness, friendships are tested and secrets revealed when Addison discovers that Naomi is concealing the practice’s financial problems. Meanwhile, Violet wonders what secret Cooper is keeping from her, while Cooper himself has to decide whether or not to reveal a medical secret to a patient.
• Amy appeared to have filmed this episode during the hiatus on Dollhouse since she is sporting a similar, if not the same, haircut to the first official still.
• The series ended in 2013, after 6 seasons.
• Season 2 is available to buy on Region 1 & Region 2 DVD.
• Amy admitted that she accepted the role without a script because it was Shonda Rimes, but the episode didn’t make her feel good about herself afterwards, due to the heavy subject matter.
