During last week’s episode of The Good Doctor, we saw some serious personal growth from pretty much all characters but, especially from Dr. Shaun Murphy. The simple act of Dr. Melendez handing Dr. Murphy the scalpel and formally stating that he believes in him helped propel Dr. Murphy’s confidence. You could clearly see that transpire in the final scenes of last week’s episode.
In this week’s episode, however, a traumatic experience could set Dr. Murphy back or, even worse, could completely crush him. The official synopsis for Monday night’s episode titled Apple reads as follows:
“During a robbery at the grocery-mart Dr. Shaun Murphy is shopping at, his communication limitations put lives at risk. Meanwhile, after Shaun’s traumatic day, Dr. Aaron Glassman worries that he isn’t doing enough to help Shaun.”
Check out the preview from ABC below:
Apple was written by David Renaud and Bates Motel and LOST fans will be excited to know, the episode was directed by Nestor Carbonell.
