Dr. Shaun Murphy did some serious soul searching in the midseason premiere of ABC’s The Good Doctor. He weighed his options and listened to his heart (literally). When his pulse didn’t race for Lea, Shaun made his decision to pursue his relationship further with Dr. Carly Lever. He even shockingly said the big ol’ “L-word,” LOVE. However, it seems there may still be some trouble brewing in paradise.
On Monday’s new episode of The Good Doctor titled Mutations, Shaun needs Carly’s help with his current patient, and the pressures of their profession may put a strain on their newly repaired relationship. We want nothing but the best for Team Sharly, but can they make things work?
Fun fact for this upcoming episode, it’s another Bates Motel reunion as Nestor Carbonell returned to the set once more to direct. You definitely won’t want to miss this one!
Below is the official synopsis from ABC for the upcoming episode as well as the promotional trailer. Check it out:
“Dr. Audrey Lim, Dr. Shaun Murphy, and Dr. Morgan Reznick treat a 25-year-old runner suffering from severe swelling; but when things take a turn for the worse, Dr. Shaun Murphy enlists the help of Dr. Carly Lever. Meanwhile, Dr. Alex Park, Dr. Claire Browne and Dr. Neil Melendez treat two 16-year-old cancer patients who are dating; and Dr. Shaun Murphy and Dr. Carly Lever work toward intimacy”
