The Good Doctor Season 3 Episode 11 Recap:

The eleventh episode of the third season of ‘The Good Doctor’ is titled ‘Fractured’ and returned after the show went on a mid-season break post a climactic moment in the tenth episode of the season. It starts with Lea waking up in Shaun’s motel room, fully dressed, after the previous night when she comforted him.

Shaun mulls over making a choice between Lea and Carly. He seems to feel way more comfortable with the former, in a way that he does not with the latter. In the process, he ends up beginning to avoid both of them.

Meanwhile, the episode’s patient is an opioid addict who needs corrective surgery for a fracture in her leg. She is recovering from her addiction but refuses to undergo the recommended surgery as it requires her to be anesthetized which might cause her to relapse. She is ready to go through the surgery without the anesthesia since she hasn’t told her husband about her former addiction.

She eventually tells her husband the truth but still wants to go through the surgery without anesthesia to avoid a relapse. The doctors are forced to comply.

Eventually, Shaun comes clean to Carly and confesses about having spent the night talking to Lea. Carly gets upset and asks for space. This causes Shaun to have a panic attack in Glassman’s office as he gets anxious about all the people in his life leaving him. However, Glassman manages to calm him down in what is one of the show’s most beautiful scenes.

Then, Carly and Shaun talk outside the hospital. Carly tells him that she loves him but does not know how their relationship will work with Lea staying at Shaun’s. Shaun tells Carly that he loves her and wants to be with her.
