The Good Doctor season 2 episode 12 is entitled “Aftermath,” and that definitely feels appropriate after what happened tonight. We’re coming out of a particularly eventful episode, but one that also did (thankfully) offer up at least some good news. Dr. Lim is alive, but probably needs some time to recover. Meanwhile, Dr. Glassman doesn’t have cancer again, but he does need surgery and to recover from a different issue. Shaun can move forward at his job, but we do think that there are some elements of his personal life that do still need some work.
Even though things may be a tad more stable in the world of The Good Doctor at the moment, this does not mean in the slightest that they will stay that way. There’s a good chance we’ll see some craziness once more by the end of the season.
Below, CarterMatt has the official The Good Doctor season 2 episode 12 synopsis with more news on what’s ahead in the immediate future:
In the aftermath of the quarantine, the staff of San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital tries to return to their normal routines as the Department of Public Health office decides they need to review what transpired to restore public confidence. Meanwhile, as Dr. Audrey Lim (Christina Chang) recovers from the virus, she and Dr. Neil Melendez (Nicholas Gonzalez) navigate their new personal and working relationship, while Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) and Dr. Aaron Glassman (Richard Schiff) try to relax and visit Lea (Paige Spara) at work.
The relationship between Dr. Lim and Dr. Melendez is going to be an important thing to figure out. They both have clear feelings for each other, and we don’t think that they are going to run away from that. Yet, at the same time we do think that they need to establish some parameters and how they want their personal relationship to function within the context of their professional one at work. It is inevitable that there is going to be a little bit of an overlap here, mostly because of the fact that they spend so much of their day at work treating patients.
This episode is going to for sure feature at least a few moments of fun, as some teasers out there suggest that Dr. Glassman will be go-karting with Shaun and Lea at some point during it. We’re not sure that this is the safest thing for them to be doing in the aftermath of Aaron’s surgery, but we get the interest in just having some fun after all he’s gone through.
