'Good Sam' will see a new face on the show in the form of Sendhil Ramamurthy. 'The Flash' actor will head into the medical drama in the third episode titled 'Butt of the Joke'. The series follows Dr Sam Griffith who clashes with her father Rob (Jason Isaacs) who was the chief of surgery. A shooting incident puts the old man in a coma and in his absence, the daughter was about to get that role permanently. Things become difficult when Rob wakes up from his coma after six months ad stakes his claim for the position again.
This leads to frequent clashes between the two and also affects the others around them. The question now is if Ramamurthy's Asher Pyne can help resolve the differences between Sam and Rob. And on that note, here's everything you need to know about his character.

Who is Sendhil Ramamurthy's Asher Pyne?
Vivian (Wendy Crewson) has a love interest in Pyne and the duo are shown to be sharing a kiss in the photos released by CBS ahead of the third episode. It is revealed that he is her new spouse and is also a therapist who will play a crucial role in helping the father and daughter put their differences aside. What remains to be seen is how that pans out assuming Sam and Rob cooperate and try to sort out their issues. The photos also suggest that they're not happy with Vivian's decision.
Also seen in the images were some heated moments by Dr. Lex Trulie (Skye P. Marshall) with Sam and Griff. As revealed in the season opener, Sam found out that her best friend and her father had been seeing each other before he was shot and went into a coma. This stings Sam each time she sees Lex and even confronts her father in the second episode. Much depends on how Pyne's involvement changes things on the show.
'Good Sam' airs Wednesdays at 10 pm ET on CBS.
