      Emily Nussbaum New York Magazine/Vulture There was power, even nuance, amid the heightened dialogue. Mar 22, 2018 Full Review Christina Tran TV Fanatic First off, I was thrilled to hear that Benjamin Bratt would make an appearance. For weeks, I thought just maybe he's the one to make Addie happy. And it seemed that way when his character, Rated: 3.5/5 Mar 22, 2018 Full Review Dani Bradford TV Equals I thought this finale of Private Practice was well done.
