The Good Doctor episode 17 airing later this month carries with it the title of “Smile” and the more you find out about this episode, the more that this word is going to have a degree of weight to it. At the core of the story is something that is something that a patient is willing to do in order to improve their said smile, and it’s something that could have consequence if things go awry. That is why Dr. Shaun Murphy is going to wonder as to whether or not this is the right move for the patient to make. The last thing that he wants to do is put a patient’s life at risk, but for this said patient things could turn out to be a little bit more complicated.
Below The Good Doctor episode 17 synopsis gives you a pretty good sense of just what you can expect to see:
Dr. Shaun Murphy questions the need for an elective surgery that will allow his young patient to smile for the first time. Meanwhile, Dr. Claire Brown and Dr. Morgan Reznick discover that their patient lied about her identity.
For Shaun, we can see where some of the disconnect could come with this story. He is going to look to help out his patient by making sure that they stay healthy. He doesn’t fully understand how important it could be for someone to smile and some of the mental health benefits that could come along with that. Much of The Good Doctor is about Shaun understand situations as something more than just black and white. Often they are complicated and there are things that he can and will learn from going through different experiences.
As for the other storyline that is happening within this episode, are we actually going to see Morgan Reznick getting along with her other doctors? Is she going to realize that this is just as important as being competitive? Time will tell…
