However, showrunner David Shore had hinted that the new episodes in 2021 will continue to highlight Shaun and Lea’s relationship, now that they have moved in together. He said in an interview to Deadline: “We want to deal with…a mature relationship, and the challenges of that, and the mistakes that we all make in relationships, and the wisdom that Shaun can bring, along with the misunderstandings, and the confusion he takes. As always, it’s not about the comedy of that, although it’s often quite amusing, watching Shaun’s take on that.” The upcoming episodes might additionally chronicle some fresh dynamics between Morgan and Park.

The Good Doctor Season 4 Episode 5 Recap

‘The Good Doctor’ season 4 episode 5 is titled ‘Fault’. We see a confused Shaun rethinking his decision to have given autonomy to the new residents. What happens is, Asher, misdiagnoses a patient who gets admitted with back pain. Asher diagnoses Carl with an L2 compression fracture but misses out on a life-threatening aneurysm. And sadly, because of Asher’s carelessness, the final operation does not give any good results — leading to Carl’s death.

When Shaun discusses the incident with Glassman, the latter tells him that nobody is flawless — everyone can make mistakes. Shaun heads back and stays for a while with Asher, who is still reeling from the death of his first patient. On the other hand, Claire and Park treat Ellie, who has a dermoid cyst. After two surgeries, the docs are able to remove the cyst but she forgets bits and pieces of her memories.
