The Good Doctor Season 5 Episode 11 premiered on ABC, and a lot of things happened, including the bonding of Shaun and Lea. Things have been a little rough for our stars lately; however, episode 11 brought a ray of light for some of them; even Morgan seems to have done a good job at the end.
With that, we are looking forward to what awaits in The Good Doctor Season 5 Episode 12, but that will take another week. So let’s dive into what happened in this week’s episode.
The Good Doctor Season 5 Episode 11 Recap:
The spotlight of episode 5 has clearly taken by Shaun and Lea. Shea fans have been waiting to see the pair getting back together for a long time, and thankfully, the wish has been granted.
This time, Shaun took the initiative and proposed to Lea (last time, it was Lea who took the chance). It was such a sweet moment between the two, and Shaun’s turning a gum wrapper into a cake was the cherry on top.
He didn’t have a real ring to make one out of the wrapper as a placeholder, and Lea was too fond of it (after all, why not?). Shaun had an excellent episode, as he also made a special bond with Isla.
Both Shaun and Isla opened up to each other about their unhealed wounds. Shaun shared his not-so-good relationship with his parents while Isla let the lid out on her guilt about the accident.
It turned out to be a heart-warming moment when Isla’s parents were there for her when she woke up. Shaun and Isla also embraced each other, and we are pretty happy to Shaun making personal connections.
Morgan Andrews returns as the president of St. Bonaventure
Next up, we have the issue of Audrey Lim having her job lost the wrong way. Although the returning Andrews reinstated her as the Chief of Surgery, it wasn’t enough to right the wrongs.
Andrews returned as the St. Bonaventure’s president following Salen’s departure with a motive to bring St. Bonaventure back on its wheels to serve its patience with utmost priority.
Lim and Andrews don’t seem to be on the same page, and Lim is undoubtedly not giving credit to Andrews for reinstating her. Andrews and Salen’s involvement has been for all the wrongs, and the same was the case for Glassman.
Audrey and Andrews also had a confrontation in the episode, where she tells him about following Salen’s orders and returning at the last moment.
We got to know Andrews’ reasoning, which was fueled after the baby’s death. Andrews couldn’t sleep at night; however, the same might not have been with Salen. It led him to repent of his late actions.
We also have Morgan’s malpractice and her statement that cost Marcus, Aaron Glassman and her the clinic.
The Good Doctor Season 5 Episode 11 Ending: Could Morgan save the clinic?
The clinic is about to get shut down due to a dispute over the operational expense, and Aaron wants to have a look at the budget to figure out a way to save it.
The clinic’s future looked dark, but Morgan came to save the day. Morgan’s volunteer work at the nursing home to look after one of the residents has been a boon.
Medicare provided $100,000 for the test, and Morgan thought about using that to save the clinic somehow. Although he had this brilliant idea, she is not ready to step on the pedal and take charge.
She feels Glassman is the perfect person to run the clinic, and she would continue to work under him and gain experience along the way. It was very mature of her, and indeed she will prove her worth.
She also realizes she could help by offering telemedicine services for nursing homes and care facilities.
