Tim Daly is done at Private Practice, he announced on Twitter. "Shonda [Rhimes] informed my agent today that Pete wont be returning for season 6," he wrote. At the end of season five, Pete was mired in criminal proceedings after helping a patient die, and it's not clear yet how that story line will get wrapped up: Jail? Fleeing the country? Death? Disappearance with nary a mention ever, à la Mandy after the first season of West Wing? All of these options are on the table.
