Is Christina Chang leaving The Good Doctor, Dr. Audrey Lim?

The Good DoctorIs Christina Chang leaving The Good Doctor following the events of the season 6 premiere? We know that the season 5 finale left off on a huge cliffhanger. Dr. Audrey Lim’s life was in grave danger, and it was not altogether clear that Shaun, Lea, or someone else would find her in time.

Were we worried entering the episode that Lim could really be killed? On paper sure, but this was also a situation where we had a hard time believing it so. Lim is someone who has also persevered and survived a lot of difficult obstacles in her life; also, losing a character this important at this point would be almost counterintuitive to the journey some of these people were on. There’s no real reason for the premiere to want to do this and because of that, we had a hard time believing that they would go down this road.

To us, the more interesting scenario within the premiere is that Lim survives, but encounters a wide array of new obstacles that she will have to face and take on over time. There was no news over the summer that Chang was departing the ABC show, so we tend to think that in some way, she’ll manage to pull through.

Did Lim survive? Let’s just say that there was good news and bad for her in this episode. The good news is that Chang’s character DID survive the crisis from the finale, thanks in part to Shaun helping to analyze the machine at the last minute. However, it was revealed in the closing seconds that she is paralyzed, and that means a whole new normal that she will have to embrace. This is going to be a huge struggle for someone who is so used to being on her feet; it could give Christina some of the best material she’s ever had.
