'Private Practice': A Girl and a GunThe director Jean-Luc Godard famously said that in order to create drama, you only need two things: "A girl and a gun." This certainly holds true for the latest episode of 'Private Practice' (Thu., 10PM ET on ABC).

[Warning: Spoiler alert.]

While the other doctors are occupied with their own endless melodramas (which includes tonight's crossover with 'Grey's Anatomy'), Dr. Pete Wilder (Tim Daly) has to deal with something a little more solid and tangible. Such as a gun being shoved in his face. Pete volunteers to help out at a friend's home medical clinic. But he is shocked to learn that his friend Gibby (James Remar) performs surgery out of the back room of his house. And when a teenage girl is shot, the situation gets even more tense.

The young woman has been shot three times, and is quickly bleeding to death. Her boyfriend Alex (Preston Flagg) stands nervously by her side as the doctors go to work. But the girl's life can't be saved in the tiny surgery clinic. Pete says that they have to call an ambulance ... and that's when the gun comes out.

It turns out that Alex is a criminal, and that Gibby is more corrupt than he seems. Gibby has been taking money from the "gangbanger" in order to support his little clinic. Peter is outraged, but Gibby argues that the blood money could help save the lives of a hundred innocent patients. Meanwhile, there's the small matter of that gun. Alex refuses to let the doctors call 911 -- and with good reason. If the authorities arrive, he could end up going to jail.

With all of this drama going on, Pete needs a second to think. ... But it's hard to think when there's a gun pointed at your head.
