The Good Doctor Season 3 Episode 16 Recap:

The episode starts off with a 60-year-old patient, who is complaining of chest pains and has broken ribs. Dr. Shaun Murphy and Dr. Alex Park quickly diagnose and contact Dr. Neil Melendez before taking her to OR. Well, the surgery does not go well and Jane flat lines and dies due to internal bleeding.

Shaun, frustrated with the outcome, wishes to do an autopsy on Jane’s body and while in the morgue with Alex, sees that she has a tiny tattoo of a hummingbird. Meanwhile, Lim keeps seeing a little girl who disappears as soon as she tries to talk to her. The girl turns out to be Trinity, who was left in the ER some eight years back, and things take a surprising turn when she asks if she can be adopted by Audrey.

Shaun, listening to Carly, visits Lea at work. But he is unable to convey whatever he has in mind and dashes out of the door. Shaun then gets permission for the autopsy from Carly and discovers that the patient had died since she had three aneurysms inside her liver.

Finally, we arrive at the much-awaited scene between Lea and Shaun. Lea comes to his place and Shaun, after gathering the courage, expresses his feelings for her and tells her that he wants to be her boyfriend. Well, upon hearing this, Lea replies: “I love you, too. But you know me. I am selfish, and I am so, so needy… I am a total mess … you need things a certain way.” A heartbroken Shaun understands her dilemma and responds, “You don’t want to be my girlfriend because I have autism?”

Lea does not answer the question but simply walks out of the door while a single tear drops from Shaun’s eyes.
