After tonight’s new episode of The Good Doctor, we are hardly going to be seeing the future for Dr. Shaun Murphy reset itself. “Islands Part 2” next week is a direct continuation to what you see tonight, as there will be opportunities to learn a little more about A) the operation that took place at the hospital and B) Shaun Murphy’s future. He and Lea are going on a bit of an impromptu joyride tonight; on the other side of that, there will be a chance to better determine the future.
So what is coming up on The Good Doctor episode 12? Let’s just say that Shaun is going to make a decision that could change his life, and it also just so happens to be a decision that he is not going to be able to walk back from.
For a little bit more insight, check take a look at the “Islands Part 2” synopsis:
The twins suffer complications from their surgery forcing the team at San Jose Boneventure Hospital to make a life-changing decision. Meanwhile, Dr. Shaun Murphy returns to the hospital after his trip with Lea and decides he needs a more permanent change and gives Dr. Aaron Glassman his two weeks’ notice.
We would say that it’s a somewhat-massive spoiler for ABC to give Shaun’s two-weeks notice away, but at the same time we’re not exactly all that confident that this is going to be something that necessarily sticks for him. After all, the show is not entitled The Good Guy Who Used to Be a Doctor and Now He’s Not So He’s Now Just a Guy and That Alone. Okay, it’s probably a good thing that it’s now called that.
As for the surgery itself, the only teaser that we can add is that these doctors have all done so many different operations at this point that for something like this to be mentioned in a synopsis, it has to be pretty darn important. We strongly suggest that you keep your eyes peeled for anything that could be coming up.
Be prepared to see Shaun at least back at the hospital temporarily — the new promo confirms that. Yet, it could be very much temporary.
