Today ABC released some more details on The Good Doctor season 7 episode 8, which you will be waiting some time in order to see. The plan is for it to air come May 7, but you don’t have to wait at all to learn more about it!

After all, just go ahead and take a look at the synopsis below:

Shaun, Jared and Charlie’s young patient need his parents to agree on an important medical decision that could greatly improve his health; however, his parents are unable to agree on the correct path which spurs the team to try and intervene on behalf of their patient.

At this point, we hope that things are 100% good between Shaun and Charlie since we don’t need to see that rocky storyline for all of the final season. You can argue that there was already some progress, but we don’t want to trumpet out that things are resolved just yet when there is a good bit of story still to tell. (There is also another episode airing before this one on April 30.)

We do suppose that for some, it may be a little bit of a surprise that there are no signs that we are building towards a series finale just from reading that alone … but we also still think it’s possible that there are a few secrets buried somewhere within. Don’t be shocked if that ends up being the case.

About “The Overview Effect”

That is the title for this episode, and that is a reference to a phenomena often caused by astronauts upon looking at the Earth from space. Metaphorically, it can be used to describe anyone with a change of perspective that comes from looking at a situation in a different form. We’re curious to see more of how it applies here.
