‘The Good Doctor’ Season 2 Episode Preview – ‘Carrots’

CR: ABC/Jack Rowand

After a week off, ABC’s The Good Doctor will be back this Monday with an all-new episode, and we can’t wait!

In Monday night’s new episode, we’ll see Dr. Aaron Glassman continuing to struggle throughout his surgical recovery and cancer treatment. The preview shows a clearly distraught Dr. Shaun Murphy who, once again, is just trying to do what’s best for his friend and mentor, but can he motivate Dr. Glassman to listen to the doctor’s orders? Additionally, it sounds like there will be some friction between Dr. Neil Melendez and Dr. Claire Browne. Perhaps a bright spot in what sounds like another highly emotional episode, Shaun and Lea’s relationship progresses to a new status. In the most recent episode, Shaun reveals (hilariously during his karaoke rendition of Islands in the Stream) that he’s rented a two bedroom apartment where they can live together. Lea was clearly shocked by this revelation, so it looks like we’ll get to see that storyline play out further.

Check out the synopsis and preview for the upcoming episode titled Carrots below.

“When a patient suffering from anorexia can’t gain the necessary weight needed to survive heart surgery, Claire suggests they perform an experimental surgery which Melendez strongly opposes. Shaun worries Glassman’s refusal to walk the hospital floor will keep him from being discharged and tries to persuade him to ambulate. Meanwhile, Shaun and Lea change the terms of their current relationship.”
