The Good Doctor episode 4 spoilers: Can Shaun Murphy take a step forward?

The Good Doctor episode 4As we look ahead to The Good Doctor episode 4 airing on ABC October 16, one question is clear: Is Dr. Shaun Murphy poised to take his next step? This is a character who has to take many things at his own pace and figure out the best possible ways for him to function; hopefully, we’ll have a chance to see a few victories for him as we do move into “Pipes” airing on ABC in a mere matter of days.

If you’re interested in getting a few more details regarding what lies ahead right now, check out our full synopsis below via ABC!

The Good Doctor episode 4 synopsis – “Dr. Neil Melendez and the team have to wade through legal waters when a husband and wife have to make a life-changing decision about their unborn child. Meanwhile, Dr. Shaun Murphy struggles to adjust to his new environment at home and makes a huge step forward with his colleagues.”

Obviously, the personal stuff for Freddie Highmore’s character is going to intrigue us the most at CarterMatt, mostly because we like seeing personal drama play out and this character is so unique from many others who are out there. We know that he has an incredible capacity to perform medical miracles but also still needs help in other parts of his life.

As for the difficult “legal waters” mentioned here, the other part of this show that people out there likely enjoy is the part that will likely generate some discussion for many more weeks to come. After all, we presume that there are plenty of people out there who, like House before it from David Shore, watch to see what sort of unusual/creative medical case is brought to the table. So far the show’s been a ratings titan and if it appeals to everyone out there who loves the show we’ve got a pretty good feeling that it’ll be around for a while.

If you look below, you can get some more news as to what’s coming up next! It’s another challenging case, and also some tension. After all, we do have a violation of what is one of the basic rules for all egotistical doctors — they don’t love being contradicted in front of a patient.
