Hello and welcome back, my fellow Good Doctor fans! It’s wonderful to be back after a frustrating hiatus, made even more difficult by a cliffhanger winter finale. The Good Doctor was back with a roller-coaster conclusion in “Quarantine Part Two”, to the point I’m pretty sure I stopped breathing a couple times and uttered “bloody hell” at least once.
Dynamics — the one part of this show I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of. “36 Hours” showcased this to the full, between Claire’s point about assertiveness in the workplace, Dr. Glassman fully immersed in the patient side of healthcare, and Shaun’s foray into a shift at the ER that led to some competing personal advice.
Let’s dive in, shall we?
If The Good Doctor‘s latest episode, “Middle Ground,” made one thing clear, it’s that life is never as straightforward as we want it to be. Unfortunately, Shaun and Dr. Lim learned this the hard way. The Good Doctor exercises a lot of confidence in letting its characters drive what they deal with each week. Let’s dive into that story, shall we?
Shaun Murphy, oh I have missed you. The Good Doctor was back in form with “Hello”, penned by lead Freddie Highmore, and it was like sitting down to have coffee with an old friend. The kind where you start talking, and it’s like no time has passed. I wish I could have said that during hiatus, but really I’m just thankful Fall TV is back just in time to make me cry a bit.
