Welcome back, The Good Doctor fans!  We made it!  The winter break is over and finally, our show is back with all new episodes!

The winter finale sure shook things up at San Jose St. Bonaventure leaving no character’s story arch unscathed.  Dr. Neil Melendez’s relationship with fiancee Jessica Preston is currently on the rocks.  Dr. Claire Browne was put in a very difficult place when a new doctor made inappropriate advances towards her.  Dr. Jared Kalu’s was fired after he punched out the doctor who was harassing Claire and, after a violent meltdown during which he hit Dr. Aaron Glassman, Dr. Shaun Murphy has run away.

What does all of this mean for the future of the surgical team at St. Bonaventure Hospital?  Hopefully, we’ll find out during Monday night’s new episode titled Islands Part One.  Check out the official synopsis for the episode as well as a preview  below:

“Dr. Marcus Andrews enlists Dr. Neil Melendez on a very sensitive kidney transplant between a pair of twins whose lives intersect in more ways than one. Meanwhile, overwhelmed by Dr. Aaron Glassman’s attempts to have him meet with a therapist and the demands at work, Dr. Shaun Murphy decides to take an impromptu trip with his friend Lea and leave everything behind.”

Islands Part One was written by Thomas L. Moran and William Rotko and directed by Bill D’Elia.
