And when Ms. Lo suggests Owen needs extra help to overcome a learning disability, Bailey offers to be a classroom volunteer without consulting Charlie first. While Ned suggests breaking up, Julia persuades him to join her in counseling to address his physically abusive behavior. But, as Julia refuses to join a battered woman's group, Dr. Kessel's pointed questions begin to strike a raw nerve with Ned.
