Next week, The Good Doctor season 2 episode 4 is going to offer up a good chance to dive into Shaun Murphy’s past — and for those wondering, there is a pretty significant reason for it. His past is going to better enable him to communicate and connect with a young patient, someone with their own disability who he is desperate to try and help. He, on paper, seems to be able to relate to them … but whether or not that actually leads to him being able to help in practice remains to be seen. Shaun is still learning — he’s far from perfect, and every day brings its own struggle. This episode will be another example of that, though some of his struggles will manifest themselves in their own way.

Below, The Good Doctor season 2 episode 4 synopsis offers up a little bit more information as to what you can expect to see:
Shaun (Freddie Highmore) recalls his own past to help an intellectually disabled teenager face separation from his mother, while Claire (Antonia Thomas) is put between an injured teenage rock climber and her worried parents. Meanwhile, Glassman’s (Richard Schiff) post-op hallucinations force him to confront a personal tragedy.
This episode will be emotional beyond just Shaun, mostly because Claire (clearly) has the sort of case coming up where it is impossible for her to win. This is what happens when there are so many different forces tugging at her and, unless her decision completely works, there could be dramatic consequences.
As for Dr. Glassman’s story, the only given here seems to be that Richard Schiff is probably going to kill it.
