As you get yourselves prepared to see The Good Doctor season 7 episode 8 on ABC, we will hit another important stage of Shaun’s journey.

Through a lot of the series (and well before the final season), we have thought that one of the major questions is simple: What does it mean to be a good doctor? Is it actually far more simple than it may seem at first. Some of it is coming up with treatment plans and performing procedures, but then the other part of it is social. You have to be a good leader, which Freddie Highmore’s character struggled with in regards to Charlie. Meanwhile, you also need to be able to speak to patients the right way and that may mean, at times, convincing them to do something that they may not otherwise consider. This will prove to be a big part of “The Overview Effect,” which is airing in seven days.

Below, you can check out the full The Good Doctor season 7 episode 8 synopsis with other insight on what lies ahead:

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.

As you would probably imagine, this situation is as difficult of a legal quagmire as any that Shaun and the St. Bonaventure team have dealt with so far this season. Obviously, they want to help their patient, but how far can they really go if they do not have the parents’ agreement? Careers could be on the line over the course of it, but that’s probably what also allows for it to have such high stakes!
