(ABC)

Melendez is back in 'The Good Doctor' but not in the way we would like. He's roaming around as a free spirit in the hospital. Melendez (Nicholas Gonzalez) died in the Season 3 finale after being injured in a building collapse. Claire (Antonia Thomas) is still having hallucinations of her former lover, giving much hope to fans that there's a chance that their favorite will return in some miraculous manner. But unfortunately, Melendez is dead and we're only going to see him in spirit form. Fans are rather annoyed now, and say that they should make it official and bring him back... rather than just being tortured by his looming presence. 

Some, have gone so far to hope for a kiss between Claire and Melendez, though we're not sure how that would work. "I don't even feel like live-tweeting this anymore. All I'll say is I don't appreciate Melendez mentally torturing Claire after everything she's been through. #TheGoodDoctor," a fan wrote.



 

"The last time a TV Dr was seeing a dead Person was Greys Anatomy & it was because Dr. Izzy had a brain tumor. Does Dr. Browne have a tumor so she’s seeing Dr Melendez? If not, why show Dr Melendez like that? Why bother killing him off @gooddrwriters #GoodDoctor #TheGoodDoctor," another fan wrote. "Stop torturing me with dead Melendez, #TheGoodDoctor," another tweeted. "Okay! No you don’t kill off my Melendez and use him as a ghost!!!! Ugh!!!I want him back for REAL! #TheGoodDoctor," another fan tweeted. "Is it wrong of me to want a dead Dr. Melendez and an alive Claire to kiss? #TheGoodDoctor," yet another wrote.



 



 



 



 

 

In an interview with TvLine, David Shore opened up about Melendez's reappearance. "Claire’s storyline is very much about trying to bring solace to people who have lost somebody [and] doing what you can do. Melendez is one of those people [for Claire], more so than anybody else in our hospital at that moment, given the way we ended last season. Of course, we did not anticipate any of this at the end of Season 3. Liz Friedman, who co-wrote the episode with me, called me up one day and said, 'I think we should see Melendez,' and I went, 'That’s a good idea.' We’ve done this before, obviously, with Shaun and his brother, and it seemed like an interesting way for this [grief] to manifest."

'The Good Doctor' airs on ABC, Mondays at 10 pm.
