The Good Doctor Storyline
The Good Doctor follows the life of Dr. Shaun Murphy, an autistic surgical resident with Savant Syndrome, and his colleagues at Saint Bonaventure Hospital. Each episode deals with a different case that the doctors face and attempt to resolve while simultaneously tackling their personal problems.
The exact plot of the sixth season is not out currently. However, we expect The Good Doctor Season 6 to expand on the show’s central theme. Given the unexpected and shocking cliffhanger ending of season 5, fans have many questions regarding the sixth season.
At the end of the fifth season, we see our protagonist Shaun Murphy finally getting married to his long-time love interest Lea in a ceremony in the hospital. Shaun finally acknowledges his father-son bond with Dr. Glassman. The upcoming installment will show us how the newly married couple navigates their way through life and the new challenges they may face.
In a surprising turn of events, we see Dr. Lim and Villanueva getting stabbed by Villanueva’s stalker Owen at the wedding. This leaves their faiths uncertain as the fifth season reaches its conclusion. The sixth season will finally reveal to us if Dr. Lim survives the stabbing or if we will lose another of our favorite characters. (We still have not gotten over Dr. Melendez’s death). All show fans have to hold their breaths until season 6 airs on ABC, and Dr. Lim’s faith gets revealed.
