Exclusive: Private Practice Brings Back Grant Show – For A Deadly Twist?

ABC’s Private Practice isn’t done with Grant Show yet. Not by a stretch.

Though the Melrose Place alum will be popping up on the January 16 season premiere of HBO’s Big Love, it turns out he still has some matters to tend to on ABC’s Thursday-night drama — and those matters could be rather… grave.

This much we can reveal: Show will resurface in this season’s 14th episode, airing February 10, when the presence of Addison’s bad boy brother, Archer, becomes a bit mandatory. Show previously logged six visits to Private Practice, plus one crossover to Grey’s Anatomy.

One additional clue: Stephen Collins (No Ordinary Family) will reprise his role of Addison’s father, “The Captain,” in the same sweeps episode.

Three… two…one… speculate!

ABC’s Private Practice airs Thursdays at 10/9c.

  • This is AMAZEBALLS as @katewalsh would say. Love your tweets Kate :)

    Grant Show made a great brother for Addison a couple of seasons ago.
    Any chance he can stick around longer than 1 episode?

  • YAY! Addison family drama is the BEST!

  • It’s the end of Bizzi’s arc. They probably having Susan have a turn for the worse and killing her. The other members of the family race to Bizzy’s and Addison’s side.

  • Omg I’m so excited for both of them coming back. I especially loved Addison and Archer’s dynamic. Can’t wait to see what kind of trouble he’ll make. Also gonna love the tension between The Captain, Violet and Pete. Loves it!

    Would you happen to have any Addisam news? In the preview for next week it makes it look like Addison might be contemplating cheating again. I really hope not, she’s grown as a character and it would be such a step backwards for her to do so.

  • If Addison had grown so much, she wouldn’t have dated Sam. I loved her character, but I can’t take that. I know it’s a TV show, but I wanted them (the writers) to place more value on her and Naomi’s relationship than they did.

    Outside of Sam, I love Addie! Can’t wait for Archer to come back…Naomi needs some lovin’! Also, him and Addie had a good dynamic. I think the Captain will die…that will be extremely sad. Also have we seen Addie & Archer interact since Bizzy came out?!

  • I can’t wait!!

  • Cheeks – No we haven’t seen Archer since back in Season 2 when Derek saved his life during the crossover episode, then he was dating and cheating on Naomi and Addison found out and told her.

    I also loved the Addison/Archer dynamic and hope Grant Show might stay for more episodes. Poor Addison though. Bizzy was such a bitch on last night’s show but if they kill her off Addison will be devastated.

  • He and Amelia would be perfect for each other :)

  • I think he’s either coming back for Bizzy/Susan wedding or Susan’s funeral.

    Comment by JrzShoreLady – January 8, 2011 10:16 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Nope, episode 12 is the wedding. Archer and The Captain return in episode 14.

      Comment by Jamie – January 8, 2011 10:21 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Susan’s an easy guess but why would Archer fly to LA for that?

    My guess is that either Bizzy or Archer is going to die.

    Comment by Ana M. – January 9, 2011 02:20 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I am guessing that Susan dies in epi 13. Epi 14 may have Bizzy kill herself and all reunite for funeral (why in LA, though) or attempt it and everyone is called in to convince her not too. It could be that Susan was such a family member for years, though, that they all come to reunite for her funeral.

  • Bizzy said at the end of the most recent episode that she is going to divorce the Captain. I dont think Archer coming back necessarily means someone is going to die….it could just be family matters.

  • some genetic illness in the family and they all have to get tested..
