'The Good Doctor' Season 3 Episode 11: Shaun's love life might take an unexpected turn and we couldn't be happier
It is not surprising for us when we see a special connection developing between the two old friends — Shaun and Lea
The hit medical drama is coming back from its mid-season break and promises us a lot of dramatic events. We all know by now that no one's life is as eventful at this moment than our young doctor, Shaun Murphy.
As the preview of Episode 11 'Fractured' shows, Shaun and Lea will have some sexual tension brewing between them. When the show went on its break, it left us with a cliffhanger on what could ensue between Shaun and Carly. And the answer to that burning question will finally be here in Episode 11.
Shaun and Lea spent some time alone and intimately so, when they were visiting Shaun's dying father. The bond they shared impacted Shaun in ways he couldn't fathom. In the trailer of the upcoming episode we see him admitting to Dr Glassman about his feelings and what it meant for him and Lea to have spent some intimate time, albeit without any sex.
Despite his (and Carly's) endless attempts to have a sexual relationship with Carly, Shaun has not been able to get close enough with the one woman he has ever been close to. And then, as a complete surprise, he finds himself connected to Lea when they are alone after Shaun's father's death. Now, here's some serious food for thought.
We know and have seen how Lea and Shaun's friendship has evolved over the years. They liked each other, to the extent that Shaun had fallen for her, but that never went ahead since Lea had a boyfriend. From there to becoming housemates, and good friends, the two had quite a journey. So, when we see a special connection developing between the two old friends, it is not surprising for us at all.
It was only a matter of time until Shaun's feelings for Lea rekindled. However, this could make things complicated for the young doctor since he is technically dating Carly and he would also not want to hurt her. Knowing how difficult it is for Shaun to express himself or even analyze his emotions, it is going to be a tough call ahead. But at the same time, we will be more than happy if Lea and Shaun finally get together.
