Season 3 | Episode 309 | Aired 12/02/2009

Eleanor is a 60-year-old woman who is 23 weeks pregnant with a buildup of cerebral spinal fluid. If the swelling continues, the baby could have severe brain damage. Addison suggests a complex in-utero surgery on the baby’s brain to relieve the pressure. Ronald, Eleanor’s much younger husband, doesn’t want to risk losing his wife. But Eleanor and Addison convince him that surgery is the way to go.

Violet catches Addison’s father, The Captain, checking her out just before a lunch date with his daughter. Addison and her dad struggle to find non-surgical things to talk about during their meal. After lunch, The Captain checks out Violet once again, and she likes it. Guess that’s why they end up in bed together. Violet accidentally spills the news of her liaison to Charlotte and word spreads to everyone but Pete and Addison. How long do you think that’ll last?
