Season 5 of The Good Doctor is pretty intense. Apart from Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) and Lea’s (Paige Spara) long-awaited wedding, all want to see what future Shaun has now that he has more authority in the operating room.
Things are going really well for Shaun in Season 5 of The Good Doctor. But while things are going well, something terrible is about to happen.
The season five winter finale again embarrassed Shaun. After the doctors were forced to band together, some conflicts arose.
Would Lea Shaun do his job? Could she cause distress if he happens to find out what she was doing behind his back?
CarterMatt noted that Shaun and Lea witnessed a car accident after visiting a possible wedding location in the winter finale. There they met Alma (Natalee Linez), a young pregnant woman who, with serious injuries, needed immediate medical attention.
Alma’s condition worsened, so Shaun, Dr. Lim (Christina Chang) and Dr. Jordan (Bria Henderson) were forced to deliver the baby despite his premature birth. Elsewhere, Dr. Glassman (Richard Schiff) worried when a figure from the past returned for help.
This episode left a lot of questions on fans that won’t be answered until the return of The Good Doctor season 5. However, it could be a while before Shaun and the rest of the Good Doctors return for a new episode.
Meanwhile, one of the questions fans need an answer to is about Shaun and Leaa’s marriage, according to Distractify. Viewers waited for the engagement of the two for almost the entire series.
Showrunner David Shore stated that the show’s creative team worked hard to make sure their journey into married life really happened. They also wanted to have as much fun as possible and stay true to the heart of the series.
Shore told TV Insider that the scriptwriters had just started planning the wedding and he wanted it to be fun for everyone. However, he wanted to do it the The Good Doctor way and take advantage of Shaun’s unique character.
As the center of the show, he wanted Shaun’s insight and view of things to flow into this long-awaited event. So would they finally take their wedding vows before the end of season five?
It’s not far now, but a last-minute medical emergency could prevent the ceremony. Unfortunately, it is not yet known when The Good Doctor Season 5 will return after the winter break.
