Are you ready for The Good Doctor episode 17 to arrive on ABC in one week’s time? We certainly hope so, given that this episode is going to be the last one before the finale comes on the air. The title here is “Smile,” and this could be a story as a whole that is geared very much around happiness. There are going to be some people who are desperate to find it in just about any form; meanwhile, Shaun will attempt to do what he can in order to ensure
Below, The Good Doctor episode 17 synopsis offers up some additional insight now as to what could be coming up:
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.
When it comes to Shaun’s medical case, the first inclination that we have here is mostly that Shaun doesn’t completely understand why this patient would want to go through this sort of surgery. Ultimately, he doesn’t quite understand the impact of something like a smile to someone’s mental well-being. Seeing him understand that could be another nice revelation for this character. This episode as a whole should be uplifting and thought-provoking, and that is precisely the sort of thing that we want to see from The Good Doctor this late in the season.
As for Dr. Reznick’s story, we actually do think that this story is very effective when it comes to one simple thing: Giving us another opportunity to see if she can come around after being such an adversary to everyone in the early going. That could be integral to whether or not she is a character who could be a key player in season 2.
