I didn’t see it coming!
If somebody was going to remain in Guatemala on the finish of The Good Doctor Season 4 Episode 20, I assumed it could be Lim. In any case, she has a brand new boyfriend who insisted they couldn't have something actual since she would solely be within the nation for every week.
However as a substitute, Claire received a job on the clinic in Guatemala. If he needed to go, not less than it was for one thing constructive fairly than one other pointless demise of the character.
Like Shaun, I’ve combined emotions about Claire's departure.
For one factor, The Good Physician Season four appeared prefer it had strayed rather a lot from the collection' authentic premise, and Claire's departure confirmed that it could by no means be the best way issues had been once more.
When Shaun first got here to St. Bonaventure and Andrews, and a few of the different board members weren't positive whether or not to rent or retain him, Claire was in his nook.
She was the one who all the time defined issues to him that he didn't perceive and inspired him to maintain going when he was anxious that his difficulties made it too tough for him to be a physician.
Claire's departure signifies the top of that period.
Then again, the writers have taken his character so far as they may. She received over her mom's demise, handled PTSD, one way or the other or different maintained a friendship with Morgan, and argued with Lim about whether or not Lim wanted remedy as nicely.
There wasn't a lot else to do together with her except her conflicting emotions about her father had been introduced out, so it is smart for her to depart.
The entire journey to Guatemala gave the impression to be about life adjustments for everybody anyway, a lot in order that if I hadn't recognized higher, I’d have thought it was a collection finale fairly than a season finale.
Glassman telling Shaun that Shaun was way more able to standing up on his personal these days appeared particularly like an end-of-series assertion.
Shaun: Lea is gloomy and I don't know the way to make her much less unhappy. You do?
Glassman: I don't suppose I'm the proper individual to ask about this at this level.
Shaun: Why not?
Glassman: I don't suppose … I'm flattered that you simply all the time ask me for recommendation and I hope you all the time do, however I've seen that in latest months you want me much less and fewer. Makes me take into consideration what Steve stated, that you simply're the sensible one. You are able to do it. You might be higher than you suppose.
Glassman and Shaun's relationship dominated the early episodes of The Good Physician, with Glassman being the one board member who was solidly on Shaun's facet and wanted Shaun greater than he admitted.
4 years later, Glassman kind of stated goodbye to that relationship dynamic. It was transferring and galvanizing, however on the similar time, it made me surprise what awaits us for the fifth season of The Good Physician.
It's not simply that Shaun is extra unbiased now. He and Lea are getting married and can in all probability attempt to have one other child (and hopefully carry it to time period) sooner or later sooner or later.
And everybody else's relationships are nicely outlined for the second as nicely.
Morgan: I'm sorry I used to be bizarre for a 12 months. I actually look after you. I want you and Heather the perfect.
Park: It's too late for that. I broke up with Heather final evening.
Morgan: Did you? Why do you suppose you’re keen on me?
Morgan: I believe I really like you too.
Morgan managed to not solely overtly care concerning the destiny of sufferers and remorse that she will be able to not be a surgeon, but additionally apologized to Park and admitted that she liked him.
Part of me needs she was the one to remain in Guatemala, but when she's going to lose her disgust, possibly she'll lastly be tolerable.
Anyway, that was purported to be the beginning of one thing for Park and Morgan, however it may even have been a decision to their fixed bickering and strolling away, leaving the remainder of their love story to the creativeness of viewers.
And Lim not solely began a brand new relationship, however opened up together with her new boyfriend about her PTSD. And shock! Dr. Non-Dedicated needed to clear up his authorized points so he may come go to Lim in San Jose.
So if this had been the top of a collection, it could have been good. Everybody found his subsequent transfer, Shaun is not depending on Glassman and life goes on.
Since The Good Physician is making a return, the query arises as to the place the collection will go.
Clearly, it's not about an autistic resident studying to handle the social features of their job, so will it change into one other physician program, centered on the brand new technology of residents whereas Shaun works on his relationship with Lea?
In the beginning of The Good Doctor Season 4Shaun was having a tough time instructing new residents, and that may be a viable route to go if the collection desires to proceed its journey.
As for the season finale itself, the circumstances in Guatemala principally took a backseat when it got here to relationships.
Certain, there have been emotional moments, like Lea connecting with the mom of a sick child and Claire having to determine between trusting her instinct or following Shaun's opinion.
Andrews: Possibly we should always wait a number of extra minutes to see if the lights come again on.
Shaun: I don't suppose it's a good suggestion. I can really feel the tumor underneath my fingers.
Andrews: Good work, Dr. Murphy.
[The lights come back on.]
Shaun: I assume possibly we may have waited.
And Shaun was in a position to do his viewing factor when the facility went out for the 5 minutes.
However there was not as a lot emphasis on the poor situations in Guatemala and the way tough it was to work with out the proper gear. That was there, however it wasn't a fantastic focus.
And I needed to chortle on the description of the episode referring to Shaun working with out electrical energy as a result of that was a really small a part of the general story. I stored ready for the facility to exit once more as a result of the facility outage gave the impression to be solved too simply.
