Leah the good doctor

Does The Good Doctor have competition from another new arrival? Here’s how you can watch The Good Doctor season 1, episode 10 live, on TV and online.

Dr. Shaun Murphy might have a rival in Monday’s episode of The Good Doctor, as the hit ABC series welcomes another new arrival to St. Bonaventure Hospital. But the incoming doctor isn’t quite as amenable as Shaun.

Season 1, episode 10 is called “Sacrifice,” and things seem good when St. Bonaventure adds a second new face to its staff. But the new hire eventually shows that they’re not as good as they appear to be. Elsewhere at St. Bonaventure, the events of The Good Doctor season 1 continue to weigh on Shaun’s boss and mentor Dr. Aaron Glassman (Richard Schiff), and he wants his protege to get more support. But Shaun (Freddie Highmore) doesn’t want the help.

The fall TV season’s most popular new series is still going strong, so here’s how you can watch The Good Doctor live and watch online so you don’t miss the latest episode of the show everyone has been talking about.

Here’s how ABC officially describes the episode:

Members of the hospital’s surgical team are initially impressed with a charming young doctor, but his true character puts one of them in an awkward position at work.

Meanwhile, Dr. Glassman feels Dr. Shaun Murphy needs a little more support with his personal life and suggests he meet with a therapist. However, Shaun is determined to show him that he can do it on his own.

And here’s how you can watch “Sacrifice” live, on TV or via live stream:

The Good Doctor season 3 episode 10 promo: Shaun Murphy’s pain

  • The Good Doctor season 3 episode 10 is set to arrive on ABC Monday night, and all signs point towards this being devastating. Very devastating.

    If you’ve seen the promo below already, you know what we’re talking about here. After all, Shaun has received word that his estranged father is ailing and because of that, he’s got some important decisions to make as to how to move forward. It does seem as though he will pay him a visit, but what does he say in that moment? How does he handle some of his feelings? Shaun’s parents haven’t factored into every single episode of his journey, so bringing them back will inevitably lead to a lot of other emotions coming back. There’s really no other way to break down this situation at the moment.

    Yet, how will Shaun recover from both the news and the experience of seeing his father? Both of these are important, and they each are cornerstones to what you see at the end of this promo, where Lea is doing her best to comfort Shaun in the only way she knows how. The way in which she does so does speak volumes, given the fact that Shaun does have such an aversion for physical content much of the time. He trusts her, and he also needs as many people who are there for him as possible.

    No matter what happens, Shaun will still continue to have a family of his own. Things have been difficult here or there with Carly, but we know how much she cares about him. Meanwhile, Dr. Glassman can be a father figure in his own way, though we know that Shaun has needed to be there for him at times through his own health struggles, as well. Their bond oscillates and changes, but what matters is their ability to be there for each other through thick and thin. That’s the constant that will allow the two to keep moving forward and taking on problems.

    Maybe we’ll get closure with Shaun and his father and a cliffhanger elsewhere … or maybe this will be the cliffhanger. Either way, we imagine that there will be some sort of tease here into the next part of the season.

    ‘The Good Doctor’s Paige Spara Predicts Lea & Shaun’s Relationship Will Be ‘A Very Slow Burn’

    #Brangelina and #TomKat didn’t last, but will #Shea stick? That’s the new fan nickname for Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) and his first crush — and kiss — Lea, played by Paige Spara, The Good Doctor’s cute will-they-or-won’t-they couple.

    Originally booked for two episodes last season, Spara ended up doing six on the ABC hit. This year, she’s a regular, with her character — an automotive engineer by trade — having returned from Hershey, Pennsylvania, to San Jose, California.

    What’s Next for Shaun & Lea on ‘The Good Doctor’?

    The former neighbors have an undeniable connection.

    “It’s amazing how positive the reaction to Shaun and Lea has been,” says the actress, whose only other series work was ABC Family’s short-lived Kevin From Work. “I love working with Freddie. He’s funny, mischievous and so collaborative. He’s become one of my closest friends, and I love being around him.”

    Art is imitating life: Lea has been platonically bunking with her old pal, who’s recovered from the heartbreak of her last departure. But are more flutters in the works? Their relationship “will be a very slow burn,” Spara predicts, and tonight sees a joint decision that could bring them closer. “People will enjoy watching their dynamic as they work out what kind of personal space they need, how to address each other’s emotions and what they can learn from each other.”


    And Spara emphasizes that Lea is most definitely not acting out of pity for Shaun, who’s on the autism spectrum. “Their relationship is a beautiful reminder of empathy, friendship and connection,” she says. “Her friendship with Shaun grounds her. I think it’s very relatable.” #WeArePsyched

    ‘The Good Doctor’ Season 3 Episode 12: Lea and Shaun part ways after Carly’s ultimatum, fans disappointed

    What do you do when your new girlfriend asks you to choose between your friendship and your relationship? Difficult to answer simply, isn’t it? More than often, people tend to forgo their friendship for love. Call it a mistake or a well-thought decision, such instances do not tend to go down well in the near or distant future. Dr Shaun Murphy ends up doing the same thing.

    Despite being special and more perceptive than others, he does what most men do in a new relationship. He submits to Dr Carly Lever’s expectations and asks Lea to move out. The two have not only been friends for years, but had also become roomies. And their bond grew stronger more after Shaun’s father’s death, when he went into a downward emotional spiral. This became difficult for Carly to handle, especially because she discovered (and Shaun admitted) that her boyfriend felt more intimate with his friend than he felt with his girlfriend.

    When Shaun realizes that his actions upset Carly he tries to resolve it and rectify his mistakes, even if it meant agreeing to get Lea Dilallo to move out at Carly’s request. When they had this conversation in last week’s episode, fans didn’t think it will be effective right away. As Lea finally moves out, all of us are feeling upset about it, but fans are more disappointed than ever, especially with Carly.

    One fan, who is irritated with Carly, says, “Shaun kicked Lea out?? That’s sad.. I really don’t like Carly. #TheGoodDoctor”

    Another fan said, “Wait….why does Lea have to move???????? Grrrrrrrrrr!!!! #TheGoodDoctor”

    Another fan feels bad that Lea and Shaun are axing their friendship. She comments, “@jen_nene88 @GoodDoctorABC I don’t want Shaun and Leah to not be friends. These two have great chemistry #TheGoodDoctor”

    With Lea moving out, it seems very logical that Carly might move in. Speculating on that note, one fan said, “So they going to move in together? We will see how this will work #TheGoodDoctor”

    Even after Shaun breaks the news to his girlfriend, hoping she will feel better, Carly still feels upset. How long before she forgives Shaun?

    The Good Doctor on Monday closed out Season 2 with multiple twists and endless possibilities for (a happier?) Season 3.

    Following last week’s breakdown and subsequent firing at the hands of Dr. Han, Shaun skipped out on a job interview and went out to a bar, where he instigated a fight and sustained internal injuries. He ultimately survived and was reinstated as a surgical resident, while Andrews gave Han the boot. As a result, Dr. Lim was promoted to chief of surgery.

    Meanwhile, after Claire gave Shaun a few pointers on how to ask a girl out, Shaun put on a suit and went over to Carly’s house, where he asked the pathologist out to dinner. Last but not least, Glassman took a huge leap of faith and asked Debbi to marry him.

    Below, showrunner David Shore (who wrote and directed the finale) weighs in on Shaun’s new love interest, Glassman’s surprise engagement and the ripple effects of Han’s dismissal.

    TVLINE | Was there any debate over just how much you were willing to put Shaun through before things finally started going his way?
    We’ve always been committed to not making things easy for Shaun. It’d be too easy for us to make things easy. We want him to rise above, and we want him to adversity. That’s part of life… We want to see how he deals with it, and we can be all be inspired by him.

    TVLINE | I have to admit, I’m not sure whether it was intended to be a misdirect, but I totally thought Shaun was bringing flowers and chocolates to Claire at the end of the episode, and was genuinely surprised when he knocked on Carly’s door. So I guess my question is, why Carly?
    Any one of those three — Carly, Lea, Claire — would have been a legitimate choice, and all three of them are something to explore in the future. The audience loves all three of those characters, but I think for the most part, the audience wants to see Shaun with Lea, and I kind of do, too, but we’ll see where that goes. One of the great things that I’m enjoying with this character is that even the smallest victories, given Shaun’s challenges, are tremendous. So at a certain point, I was going, “Oh, the audience is going to hate me for not having him ask Lea out,” but then I thought just seeing him ask anybody out — and Carly is someone we care about, and somebody who cares about Shaun — is going to be a lovely victory. All are on the table and continue to be on the table as we go forward.

    TVLINE | Back at the apartment, Lea thought Shaun was about to ask her out on a date. When he walked around her and left, I couldn’t get a sense of what she was feeling. How are we supposed to interpret her reaction?
    She’s confused. Is she jealous? I don’t know… There’s disappointment, even though I don’t think she was going to say yes… I love Shaun as much as she does, but you’re constantly trying to keep up with what’s going on in that head of his.

    TVLINE | I was shocked when Glassman proposed marriage to Debbi. Why was now the right time for him to take this life-altering step?
    You know, he kind of says it. He says he’s been through hell, she gave him crap in the previous episode about being unwilling to commit, so we just decided to take it that much further. It’s funny, it’s sort of the opposite of Shaun’s situation, where small steps are huge, so we decided to take a huge step with Glassman. I thought it was a nice bookend to everything he’s been through this year.

    TVLINE | It was great seeing Glassman back at the hospital and back on the board. Will he have a larger role at St. Bonaventure next season, now that he’s faced cancer and come out the other side?
    Yes, he’s going to be a doctor and he’s going to be on the board again, I think. That’s yet to be determined, for sure, but we definitely want him coming back to medicine.

    TVLINE | Han has been fired, but some of his concerns were legitimate. He expressed doubt about Shaun’s ability to take on more responsibilities the further he gets into his residency. Will some of those responsibilities be dealt with in Season 3?
    The challenges that he forecast, yes, we are going to have to deal with them… One of the things I loved about Dr. Han was, even though he was superficially the bad guy, he wasn’t completely wrong.

    TVLINE | Han revealed to Andrews that he knew someone with autism who died. Was there more to that backstory that was cut for time?
    No. We had a huge debate internally about whether we wanted to say more about it, but ultimately we decided that it’s more intriguing, and more consistent with his character, to not just pour his heart out. I think just saying that said what we needed to say, which is that this was in fact personal.

    TVLINE | Lim says that she can’t imagine that Andrews will survive the fallout after firing Han, so I have to ask: Will Andrews (played by original series regular Hill Harper) still be around when we return for Season 3?
    We plan on him being a factor in Season 3. And I love the ending that we give him. It’s a complete reversal of what we saw in the pilot, and he’s very much our hero in the episode.

    TVLINE | Now that Lim has been offered the chief of surgery position, what does that mean for Lim and Melendez? They seem to be in a really good place, but as they said, it’s not going to be easy once she’s his superior.
    That’s exactly right. We were setting up a lot of stuff for Season 3 in this episode, and I think that’s a big one. They had to keep their relationship a secret, and the hospital is going to have concerns about someone sleeping with their boss. How that all shakes out is something we will be exploring, both how it affects their personal relationship and how it affects their working relationship.

    TVLINE | Is the hopeful nature of this finale indicative of a less intense start to Season 3?
    It’ll be a different kind of intense. We set up an awful lot of stuff here and confronted our doctors with significant new challenges. They’re perhaps not bad challenges — in most cases, they’re good challenges — but we’ve given them a lot to deal with next season.

    TVLINE | Something that didn’t get as much attention in the end was Park’s ongoing efforts to put his family back together. Did you purposely hold back on that?
    I think it’s more subtle in the final cut than the rest of these storylines, but his patient is telling him that he has to be with his family. Is he going to listen to her? What’s he going to do? That’s another one we’re going to be with.

    The Good Doctor boss on Shaun’s big milestone in the season 2 finale

    Warning: This article contains spoilers from the season 2 finale of The Good Doctor, which aired Monday on ABC. Read at your own risk!

    Shaun had two victories in The Good Doctor’s season 2 finale!

    In the concluding episode of the hit ABC drama’s sophomore season, Freddie Highmore’s titular M.D. — who was fired at the end of last week’s episode — was admitted to St. Bonaventure due to injuries he sustained from a bully, who also fell ill. Unfortunately for his fellow doctors, Shaun lost consciousness right as he figured out what was wrong with his attacker. Luckily, Dr. Claire Browne (Antonia Thomas) was able to channel her inner Shaun (fancy medical graphics and all) and figured out exactly what Shaun saw before he passed out, the implication being that she has learned to see the world like Shaun in the past year.

    In the wake of Claire’s success, Dr. Marcus Andrews (Hill Harper) pushed Dr. Jackson Han (Daniel Dae Kim) to rehire Shaun; however, the hospital’s chief of surgery refused. So Andrews did the next best thing and called a vote to let Han go. Although we didn’t see the vote go down, we know Han’s gone for two reasons: First, Dr. Lim (Christina Chang) became the hospital’s new chief of surgery, complicating her burgeoning her relationship with Dr. Melendez (Nicholas Gonzalez). Second, Shaun got his job back.

    Shaun’s big day didn’t end there. To celebrate his win, Shaun suited up and asked his former pathology co-worker Dr. Carly Lever (Jasika Nicole) out on a date. And she said yes! Of course, this is a huge milestone for Shaun, and executive producer and showrunner David Shore tells EW that you can expect his love life to play a big role in season 3.

    “We put Shaun in the role of caretaker, which I thought was interesting and fun to explore,” says Shore, referring to Shau taking a care of a now cancer-free Glassman (Aaron Schiff). “Next year, we’re putting him in the role of suitor.”

    Below, EW chats with Shore about Shaun’s big date, what Lim’s promotion means for her and Melendez, and more.

    ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Why was it important to end the season on Shaun taking such a huge step and asking Carly out?
    DAVID SHORE: One of the things I love about this show is that things that appear to be little moments to the rest of us are huge moments to Shaun. I love embracing that. He’s asking a girl out. That’s something people his age do all the time, but it is huge, it is momentous, and it is significant. In terms of what we were thinking, I want to explore all those landmarks that happen in all our lives as we grow up and just explore it through his eyes, which really aren’t that different, ultimately. So I think next season, that’s going to be a lot of what we’re looking at — his social life and him growing as a man who wants to be loved.

    Do you already have an idea of what that’s going to look like?
    We haven’t started the writers’ room, but that is what we want to embrace, and I want to take it slow and I want to fully explore all the aspects of that and all those landmarks along the way. Then, there’s the successes and the failures.

    Glassman’s cancer journey spanned the entire length of the season. Did you find it difficult to pace that story across the whole season?
    Not really. That’s what we wanted to do. I guess it was tricky at times, but it was the normal challenges of not repeating yourself and exploring. But in a sense, that’s part of what they’re going through, the repetition and the monotony (how do you make monotony entertaining?), and the setbacks and the roadblocks and just the different things that happen and how they impact him. We did what we intended to do at the beginning, and it was important that we not do it fast, that we explore what would be involved in that.

    We’re guilty of this: People come in sick and, at the end of the episode, go away, either well or not well. The stories conclude themselves, and I think we do them well and I’m proud of the stories. The long arc of illness that so many patients face, we’re not equipped to deal with that on this show, but in this case we were. We made one of our characters sick, and it just felt like a natural different type of story for our show to tell.

    After telling this long story about a main character being sick over a season, have you thought about trying to do that with a new patient next season, where you have an arc instead of just a one-off?
    It certainly makes sense for us to sometimes have a patient whose story line lasts over more than one episode. I don’t think we would do what we did with Glassman, at least not that quickly, where we extend over the whole season. That was our regular character. We’d established that character. He had cancer and we wanted to be honest with it; it wasn’t something that you just do surgery and it’s over, so we felt that we had to deal with it. Bringing in a new patient and having it go that long? I don’t think we would. I think what we certainly want to explore this year is what we talked about earlier — Shaun’s love life. Obviously, against the backdrop of that, what we want to do , how does that reflect on other characters and what other characters reflect back on Shaun? We all live in a complicated world where we impact those around us, and that’s obviously essential.

    Why was it important to give Claire her own Shaun-like epiphany in the finale?
    God knows she deserved a moment like that. Superficially, it would appear to be a show about Dr. Shaun Murphy, a young man with autism, learning to navigate this world and learning from the people around him how to navigate this world, and how to be a better person, a better doctor. I think our show is not at its best when that’s what it’s about. Not that those stories can’t be compelling, but I think our show is at its best when the rest of us — I mean our characters and the rest of us, the viewers as well — learn to the look at the world through Shaun’s eyes, and that we learn something from Shaun rather Shaun learn something from us. So, this seemed like a golden opportunity , how do we function when we lose Shaun, and what have we learned from Shaun? In the finale, we lose Shaun for a little while.

    Was this a one-off thing for Claire, or will we see her get those visions next season too?
    I don’t think we’re going to be showing Claire visions on a regular basis, but hopefully all of our characters, to a little extent or a larger extent, have learned to see the world a little differently because of Shaun, and that will manifest in them as people and as doctors.

    The other big move in this episode was that Dr. Lim becomes the new chief of surgery. Did you go back and forth between Lim and Melendez, or did you know from the beginning that you wanted it to be Dr. Lim?
    No, we went back and forth all season. As you probably saw, first it was nobody. Then it was an outside person. But we’ve been asking “Melendez or Lim?” throughout the year, and we felt that you can’t just tease that forever. You have to answer it. I think they are both worthy candidates. After bringing the two of them together romantically, either choice would be great, but I think this opens the door to more interesting conflict and dynamics.

    How do you expect this relationship to affect their dynamic going forward now that she’s chief?
    I think it absolutely will affect it, and that’s what we’re going to have to explore. As they say in that scene, either one of them resigns or they break up. Or, the third choice, which they don’t mention in that scene, is that they go back to lying to everybody. Choices have to be made and certainly, certainly it’s going to affect their relationship. That’s where the fun happens.

    Is the last we’ve seen of Dr. Han?
    It’s very possible. I liked the character and had fun with it, and I thought Daniel did a great job. The arc that we were dealing with is now complete, but that doesn’t mean the character can’t come back, and I very much would be open to that.

    ‘The Good Doctor’ Boss on Shaun’s Finale Victory and Exploring Romance in Season 3

    In “The Good Doctor” Season 2 finale, two characters have made breakthroughs in how they perceive Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore), the surgical resident at St. Bonaventure Hospital who has autism and savant syndrome. Both situations demonstrate that it’s not only the responsibility of the person with autism to try and fit into society, but for neurotypical people to also understand the benefits of perceiving the world through a very specific and less conventional point of view.

    In the episode, Shaun gives the rather cryptic diagnosis of “trampoline” to a patient before he himself passes out from a medical condition. Dr. Claire Browne (Antonia Thomas) insists on standing in the same spot, at the same height in the hospital room as Shaun, hoping to understand what he meant to say. Oddly enough, the strategy works. She notices a symptom she had missed before and comes to the life-saving diagnosis that the patient has tertiary syphilis or “treponema,” for which he receives the proper treatment in time.

    “The Good Doctor” showrunner David Shore spoke to IndieWire about Shaun’s evolution, romance, and whether or not Claire’s strategy could help in understanding how another person’s brain works.

    “It’s a bit of a metaphor. I don’t think she’s having a Shaun vision in the same way that Shaun does. We can never become somebody else, but we can all recognize the validity of other ways of thinking about things and recognize that good ideas can come from that,” said Shore.

    “There’s something to mine from just looking and looking and looking and focusing and focusing and focusing. Absolutely, of course, we all need to look at things differently, we all need to check out assumptions. I think that’s what Claire does there.”

    Although Dr. Andrews (Hill Harper) doesn’t go as far as standing in Shaun’s shoes, the hospital president makes a major decision that reveals how his mindset about people with autism has changed. After the new chief of surgery Dr. Han (Daniel Dae Kim) fires Shaun for erratic behavior and lack of control, Andrews fires Han and reinstates Shaun.

    “This is truly a heroic move by Dr. Andrews. It shows his change in thinking, his growth, his willingness to be openminded. I don’t think it’s simply he was getting rid of Han,” said Shore. “I think he was saving Shaun and I think he’s going to pay a price for it and he’s aware of that. He’s done a 180 from his way of thinking about Shaun from the pilot episode that takes place in the same room and is basically the same discussion.”

    Although Shaun has his old job back, viewers should expect his job to stay secure. “ in different ways, different manifestations, but I do not want to be treading the same territory over and over again,” said Shore. “The reality is that I don’t think the challenges facing Shaun — the internal and external challenges — are simply going to go away because we like him.”


    Besides getting his professional life back on track, Shaun also makes a huge leap in his personal life. He had shown interest in his friend Lea (Paige Spara) all season, and even practices with his friend Claire how to properly ask a woman out on a date. But the show executes a bait and switch at the end when Shaun shows up at the doorstep of his former pathology colleague Carly (Jasika Nicole). With chocolates and flowers in hand, he asks her out to dinner and is accepted.

    Freddie Highmore, “The Good Doctor”


    “There were multiple, viable choices for who he would ask out for his first date. Lea was certainly an option. I think Lea is the one that most of us are rooting for the relationship,” said Shore. “But we like Carly and we like Claire, and they like Shaun and they accept Shaun. When first came on the show, there was almost an instantaneous connection between her and Shaun in Season 1 and we got to explore her character when Shaun was working with her for a few episodes.”

    “They’re going to go out, they’re going to learn about each other. He’s going to learn about dating. She’s going to learn to look at dating in a different light,” said Shore. “We want to explore it slowly. I think one of the great things about this character is that little victories can be huge. We don’t want to get to the end of that story any faster than we need to. We want to explore all aspects of his social life. That’s a lot of what Season 3 is going to be about.”

    Shaun isn’t the only one lucky in love. The season ends with many happy romantic moments. Shaun’s mentor Dr. Aaron Glassman (Richard Schiff) proposes marriage to his friend Debbie (played by Schiff’s real-life wife Sheila Kelley), Dr. Alex Park (Will Yun Lee) gets unsolicited advice about living closer to his estranged wife if he intends to reconcile, and Dr. Neil Melendez (Nicholas Gonzalez) and Dr. Audrey Lim (Christina Chang) come out with their relationship to the hospital staff.

    The season ends on a wrinkle for the final couple though. With Han leaving, Lim has been offered the position of chief of surgery over her equally qualified boyfriend. She will now be his boss next season.

    “Both were very viable candidates. We were teasing that all season,” said Shore. “Both choices made sense internally and dramatically. I think this one gives rise to most opportunities for stories. That is the whole reason for the show, to give rise to a debate among our doctors and the answers not being simple. That’s always been attractive to me.”

    ”The Good Doctor” is available on demand and on Hulu.
