The Good Doctor season 2: Lisa Edelstein teases Dr. Blaize role

Good Doctor episode 2 ratingsFollowing her turn on Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, Lisa Edelstein is reteaming with former House showrunner David Shore for The Good DoctorShe’s set to appear throughout the second season of the series as Dr. Blaize, a prominent oncologist who is returning to the St. Bonaventure Hospital at the request of Dr. Glassman (Richard Schiff). She’s very good at her job, but that doesn’t exactly mean that she and Dr. Glassman get along all that well.

We haven’t had a chance to see this character in action just yet, but Edelstein was kind enough to tease the role and what we can expect in a new interview with Deadline:

Dr. Blaize is not a fan of Dr. Glassman. There is definitely mutual respect there, work-wise, but these are two people who get on each other’s nerves and constantly revisit old arguments; just waiting for the moment they can prove they were right. He knows that going to her for help will also mean she might take it as an opportunity for payback over past annoyances. But its worth the risk. Because he wants to live. And she is the most brilliant oncologist around.

Really, it’s clear why Dr. Glassman wants her back — he’s thinking especially in terms of himself, given that he is recovering presumably from a risky cancer surgery. We also do think there’s something very fascinating about him owing a certain part of a life to a person who he doesn’t really get along with at all.

Edelstein also adds in this interview that while she will not be in every episode of season 2, the plan is to see her frequently throughout the story. We don’t get the impression, at least for now, that she’s going to be in every episode, she is going to stick around for a good stretch of time.
