'The Good Doctor' Season 3 Episode 11: Fans are sure Shaun and Carly will break up this season and here's why
Fans have been observing Carly's behavior and reactions to Shaun all through and feel that the two might not last long in the relationship
The 2020 premiere episode of 'The Good Doctor' has been about Shaun Murphy all the way. Despite other events happening with the rest of the characters of the story, Shaun's events take precedence. After having a close and emotional time with Lea post his father's death, Shaun starts to feel differently for Lea.
He admits to Dr Glassman that he has fallen for Lea but he is also conflicted about sharing the same emotion with Carly. After a lot of struggling with himself, Shaun finally lets go of Lea, at least in his mind. Although he goes back to Carly and admits that he loves her, fans have a different theory altogether. They have been observing Carly’s behavior and reactions to Shaun all through and feel that the two might not last long in the relationship.
A fan comments, "Thank you! Shaun is reacting out of fear. He told Glassman during his meltdown that Carly hated him. He said "I love you," but notice, all Carly said was she likes him & wants to be with him. They're not on the same page at all. #TheGoodDoctor.”
To this, another fan said, "We'll commiserate together, Kelli. And I agree it's fear on Shaun's part: he said Carly was mad at him, and asked why everybody leaves him. He doesn't want to get left again by anyone else, so he's doing what he thinks Carly wants. I'm rooting for a breakup by September."
Replying to the above, another user says, "After that mini-meltdown in Glassy's office, along with all the "analysis" he was doing all episode, I think he sees Carly's ultimatum (and his declaration of love, which as a #shea shipper I refuse to accept) as an easy way out of all his confusion."
Another fan is of the opinion that Carly is pushing her wants onto Shaun, making him say or do things that he might not be doing wholeheartedly. She comments, "Agreed. I think he also thinks that is what she wants him to say or how she wants him to act. Because she is bossy and keeps threatening to leave him every time she doesn’t like how he acts. Nope, not having it. 👋🏻 felicia."
