'The Good Doctor' Season 4 Episode 5: Do we need Park and Morgan romance? Fans complain 'who asked for that'
The show has earned itself quite the name for not exploring platonic relationships and turning everything into a slow burn romance with an ending that fans dread
Spoilers for Season 4 Episode 5
The Winter Finale of ABC's 'The Good Doctor' Season 4 just wrapped and boy was that intense! From Shaun trying his best to trust the new resident under him to him trusting them too much and ending up losing his very first patient in the last four years - things did not end well for the titular character. However, it is a bit of a development on another sphere of the episode that has fines riled up. Dr Alex Park and Dr Morgan Reznik are getting too cozy around each other which fans believe is the same kind of slow burn that Dr Claire Browne and Dr Nick Melendez had been through before the latter died so tragically at the end of the previous season. And fans are not here for the same storyline getting repeated.
The arc Park and Morgan seem to be on, has been quite an interesting one. From calling each other out on sleeping with their exes to owning who they sleep with as at least some kind of action instead of moping about a faulty relationship - the two have been at it since the beginning of the episode. Things even went wrong with Morgan sleeping naked and Park almost barging in so their living situation as what they claim is just friends definitely needs some more fine-tuning. In the end, however, the two decided to bury all conflicts and burn down mementos tying them to a past they definitely need to move on from. They burned the mentos in a backyard bonfire and sang Margaritaville, dueting around the same.
It sounds entertaining, but fans are clearly not thrilled. The reason? The show has earned itself quite the name for not exploring platonic relationships and turning everything into a slow burn romance with an ending that fans dread. They are sick of the lack of chemistry between best friends-turned-roommate-turned couple Shaun and Lea, and also tired of the tumultuous rollercoaster of emotions that Claire and Melendez's romance put them through. They simply aren't ready to take another one of those.
Taking it to Twitter, fans expressed their disappointment noting "Instead of giving us Brown and Melendez, they're giving us Park and Reznik? Who asked for that? Still sick of Shaun and Lea. Is #TheResident back yet? I think I'm over." Another begged: "keep Morgan and Park as friends for f**ks sake I’m tired of this same old storyline." Fans sick of the Melendez tragedy also asked: "Please. Don’t do a slow burn with Morgan & Park. I’m begging you from the bottom of my heart. There’s already #Chenford from @therookie on a slow burn and idk if I can handle another." Another wrote: "Oh God, I already had to get use to Claire and Melendez Don't do it to Dr Park and Morgan I'm begging you."

Reznik and Park have way too much sexual tension going on between them. #TheGoodDoctor— 💜⟭⟬ ᴮᴱ TERRI ⁷ ⟬⟭💜 (@RicksZombieGirl) December 1, 2020
They're gonna have hate sex. Park likes blondes. #TheGoodDoctor— Mona Per (@Monaper29) December 1, 2020
It's obvious that "Reznik and Park have way too much sexual tension going on between them," and as another fan pointed out: "They're gonna have hate sex. Park likes blondes." So a hook up is pretty inevitable. Even though no one asked for it.
'The Good Doctor' Season 4 airs on Mondays at 10 pm only on ABC.
