'The Good Doctor' Season 3 goes on winter break after cliffhanger episode and here's what we can expect when the show returns
The hit medical drama just wrapped up its midseason finale with a dramatic ending, which only makes us believe that it will be back with a bang and take us through more impactful events
It's that time of the year again when our favorite shows take off for a quick respite from the weekly excitement, cliff-hanging tension, and thrill. ABC’s popular medical drama series 'The Good Doctor' is no different.
After two successful seasons, the show had just launched its third season this October. As we moved on with Shaun Murphy's journey at St. Bonaventure Hospital, we also joined others in their personal and professional ups and downs, making the last couple of months quite eventful.
And even before we realized, it was time for the season's winter break. With Episode 10, 'The Good Doctor' Season 3 marked the midseason finale.
The second installment of Season 3 is slated to be back on air in January 2020, which means that we have a few more weeks to wait with bated breath and anticipate what could become of Shaun and his work family at San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital.
So, what can we expect when Shaun Murphy returns with his adventures and challenges?
Firstly, we already have an idea of what he could be going through right now. Episode 9 ended with a highly emotional moment for him, and perhaps the most sensitive episode ever on the show, across the two and a half seasons.
Revisiting his abusive father on his deathbed, learning about all the misgivings his father still holds against him and eventually learning that he is dead, has been quite overwhelming for Shaun (Freddie Highmore).
So, when the show returns after the holidays, we can expect these events to take a toll on his mental health, or perhaps he would come out of the storm all revived.
Next on our list of high anticipation is Dr. Neil Melendez (Nicholas Gonzales). After his breakup with Dr. Audrey Lim (Christina Chang), there has been a little strain between them, even as colleagues.
And in Episode 8, we saw a hint of comfort between him and Dr. Claire Browne (Antonia Thomas). So could it mean, we can see sparks flying between the two? Or will Neil and Audrey get back together?
However, before they get there, it will be also valuable to see Claire's journey, as she continues to fight her emotional battles and is about to hit rock bottom.
Furthermore, there is also Dr. Aaron Glassman (Richard Schiff) and his edgy relationship with his wife, Dr. Morgan Reznick (Fiona Gubelmann) and her recently discovered ailment, and so on to be dealt with.
However, one character that we would love to see in more details is Dr. Alex Park. We have seen him facing various challenges and being a supportive colleague, a friend, a mentor, and an incredible surgeon.
However, it would be insightful to delve into his character, personal life, and his history, in the coming episodes. 'The Good Doctor' Season 3 returns in January 2020, after a six-week winter break, at its usual time at 10 pm ET/9c only on ABC.
