Addison, Sam and Naomi are shocked to hear that Mark is considering a move to L.A. It makes sense. The guy is a plastic surgeon. He’d make a fortune! That discussion will have to wait. Right now, Addison has to operate on Mark’s daughter. Complications arise and Sloan starts to bleed out. She pulls through physically, but is a wreck emotionally. Sloan is just not ready to be a mom.
Because of her past with Mark, Addison is unsure about counseling Sloan. Eventually, she does discuss the possibility of adoption with her patient. Sloan is all over that option. This leads to a discussion between Addison and Mark, as he paints a pretty nice picture of starting a new life with her. But Addison is so vulnerable right now. She needs to know if he genuinely wants to be with her or if it’s just the easy way out. It’s a heartbreaking moment when they both realize Mark will be heading back to Seattle to stay.
