The Good DoctorEpisode 6 will continue to show viewers how Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) deals with usual but more intense scenarios in San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital. Due to the pressure, the central theme of the upcoming episode is Shaun taking risks in the midst of discord.

It can be recalled that the previous episode has been a bit dramatic. This is all because of his recent patient that resembles the face of his late brother, Steve (Dylan Kingwell). While we’ve learned that the young surgeon is good at everything he does, he was not objective during the fifth episode and instead allowed his feelings to take over.

In episode 6, Shaun won’t be the one who has the emotional attachment to the case. Dr. Jared Kalu (Chuku Modu) will find himself in a situation where his parent becomes the patient.

Dr. Murphy and Dr. Browne take risks!

Viewers saw in the previous episodes that Shaun Murphy and Claire Browne (Antonia Thomas) were always partners whenever Dr. Neil Melendez (Nicholas Gonzales) gives them the assignment, or in their case, scut work. But “The Good Doctor” episode 6 will show a difference for both characters as they perform an experimental procedure. According to Cartermatt, Murphy and Browne will be saving a young groom’s leg and life if these resident doctors succeed the operation.

Meanwhile, cooperation from the patient’s bride-to-be and parents is also needed. Dr.Kalu, on the other hand, will have difficulties in connecting with his patient whose scars are “too deep to overcome.” We know that there will be more struggles to come in the series.

However, viewers certainly want to see one thing: to let Shaun have the recognition he deserves despite his condition.

Why ‘The Good Doctor’ keeps on scoring

The ABC series was based on a Korean drama series of the same title and David Shore got the chance to recreate the piece. Shaun first showed his ability to create an alternative one-way valve due to an incident at the airport in the premiere episode. Viewers were immediately drawn to him and when he gave reasons as to why he deserves to be hired, everyone’s hearts melted.

Moreover, it can be recalled that Dr. Shaun once said to a patient’s parent in episode 2, “You’re right, I’m weird. Part of my weirdness is that I perseverate. That means I keep thinking about things.” He just does not stop until he knows a patient is medically fine. And fans obviously want more of that. The reality that he does not simply make people’s lives into business (like his fellow doctors) is a refreshing thought that fans count on. We will soon find out if he continues to keep up as show’s “The Good Doctor.”
