"Aftershock" is the first episode of the sixth season of Private Practice and the 99th produced episode of the series. It is also the 271st produced episode of the Grey's Anatomy franchise. It was broadcast on September 25, 2012.

As Addison settles into her new life having made a decision between Jake and Sam, she struggles with her insecurities while Violet begins to fear the worst when Pete doesn't show up to his preliminary court hearing and she grows concerned that he has run away from his problems. Meanwhile, Amelia celebrates a year of sobriety while Sheldon enjoys his newly reconciled relationship with his ex-wife, Laura. Elsewhere, Charlotte swears Cooper to secrecy when she receives shocking news.


The episode begins with a montage; Sam prepares a breakfast in bed, Sheldon and Amelia stand in front of an AA meeting as she is awarded her one-year chip, Cooper, Charlotte and Mason eat breakfast, Addison stands on her deck holding Henry, Jake wakes up in bed alone and Violet is awoken by a text from Pete saying "Went for a run. Whatever happens know that I LOVE YOU!"...

Violet declares that it's going to be a great day to Lucas, and remains insistent that the judge will have sympathy for Pete today as today is his preliminary hearing.
