The Good Doctor – Episodes 6.08 – 6.09

We’re again! After the emotional rollercoaster that was The Good Doctor 6×08 “Sorry, Not Sorry” and 6×09 “Damaged or Not,” we’re right here with a double overview to shout collectively about Shea and analyze the selections of Lim and Pérez, whereas we watch suspects to Morgan and Parker. Prepared? 

Right here we go! 

Shaun and Lea discover themselves in a interval of transition in these episodes of The Good Doctor. To distract herself from the unhealthy information in regards to the child, Lea units about discovering a brand new home, whereas Shaun units about creating a brand new screening kind for its residents. With out realizing it, each are in search of one thing that can provide them a way of management and maintain them busy. 

When Glassy makes him see what’s behind what they’re each doing, Shaun tries to assist…within the worst doable means. The best way to distract your self from unhealthy information, the best way to react… will not be one thing that one can management over one other individual. As at all times, Glassy is Shaun’s emotional conscience and helps him come to phrases with it. Nevertheless, I’m glad that Lea determined to attend till she had a home the place they each really feel comfy.

And now, the good information… LEA IS PREGNANT! And, in case you had been questioning, sure, I yelled too! I’m very joyful for them and any further I’m praying that this time, Shea can have his child.

Lim and Shaun’s reconciliation in The Good Doctor 6×08 “Sorry, Not Sorry” is without doubt one of the most lovely scenes this present gave us. They’d merely come too far to be simply coworkers. They had been pals and that appreciation for one another was nonetheless there. Lim simply wanted to see that Shaun was conscious of what he did incorrect in her case and took duty for it.

For Shaun, he made the perfect resolution he might make…and that could be true, however he did not do it the suitable means or measure the results. That was not proper and he has a duty for the results of his actions. I used to be glad to see that Shaun realized the reality about this and let Lim know.

The mended friendship between Shaun and Lim brings Lim’s paralysis again to the fore in The Good Doctor 6×09 “Damaged or Not.” There’s a actual probability to regain mobility for her however she is afraid. Lim is now at a degree in her life the place she feels joyful. Lim accepted her scenario and the wheelchair is now not a limitation for her, she met an exquisite man and they’re…positive.

Lim fears that regaining her mobility means shedding that great man she knew, exactly as a result of what introduced them collectively within the first place…would not be there anymore.

However this man is so great that he makes Lim see that this operation won’t change what he feels for her. He even asks her THE query. It will not be one thing quick, it is only for Lim to know the way severe he’s however I’ve to admit that I yelled anyway. Actually loud.

This week’s case from The Good Doctor touched my coronary heart. Consuming problems and insecurities relating to our our bodies are advanced topics. So advanced that even the individuals who wish to assist us probably the most could make us really feel worse. That is simply what occurs between these two brothers. The little brother simply wished to encourage his large brother to be higher and “repair” what he thought was damaged.

However that’s the level. Really, there may be nothing to repair and that means of affirming that it did make his brother really feel as if one thing was incorrect with him. Certainly his complete life has made him really feel this manner and that made “fixing” himself such a precedence that he was prepared to place his life at risk.

That’s the reason it appears unfair to me that his youthful brother flaunts his victimhood. Nobody was attempting to make him really feel responsible, his brother was simply exposing how he feels. His brother solely must be liked, not advised and made to really feel, even with the perfect intentions on the earth, that there’s something incorrect with him that he should repair.

Typically it takes much less good intentions and extra understanding and empathy. The identical message applies to his medical doctors. Perez is correct that doing one thing private due to others by no means works…and Shaun does not have to make use of that well-worn argument, to sum up, such a posh scenario. Nevertheless, Pérez had no proper to stress the affected person to inform his brother the reality. Was it the suitable factor to do? Sure. However it wasn’t his resolution to make.

Fatphobia causes consuming problems and I am glad The Good Doctor highlights this drawback and a few behaviors which can be fatphobic, even when they do not imply to.

Jealous Morgan is a sight to see and I like it! Though this jealousy hides a extremely unhappy underlying scenario. She nonetheless loves Parker however he made it clear to her way back that she’s not what he is in search of. And I really like how she is obvious that she mustn’t change for anybody and even much less for a person. She deserves somebody who loves her simply the best way she is, not that he wants her to be another person.

So Morgan is set to make it clear to Parker that they each want to maneuver on, although it is actually tearing her aside. Morgan advised Parker nothing however the reality hurts and Parker took the hit. So when it is his flip to determine on Lily, although he denies it, he wasn’t pondering straight.

In fact, Lily’s well-being is on Parker’s thoughts, however he is undervaluing Morgan’s arguments just because she’s the one exposing them and must counter her, as a twisted solution to acquire a victory after their earlier argument.

What neither of them realizes – however Lily does – is that they’re nonetheless hooked on one another, drawn like a magnet that may’t cease looking for its reverse pole. Neither of them can let go as a result of they love one another and that is not going to vary, irrespective of how a lot they faux it’ll.

Lily’s rejection provides Parker a much-needed dose of actuality, at the least sufficient to speak to Morgan civilly. However nonetheless, she leaves and he lets her go…and I am dying for the second neither of them lets go.

After the kiss from the earlier episode, Perez and Jordan appear about to start out one thing. Regardless that Pérez wished to attend to maneuver on, the attraction between them is simply too sturdy. Nevertheless, Jordan wants readability on this. That’s to say, it isn’t honest for her to not know what to anticipate and cease her life for one thing that will by no means materialize. Pérez is prepared to point out her the readability that she wants however… every part goes incorrect ultimately.

Pérez has relapsed into medicine and is at risk of demise. What occurred together with his affected person, the guilt he feels for what occurred… it was an excessive amount of. Habit is like that, preventing it’s a every day battle as a result of there isn’t any treatment for one thing like this and you’re just one unhealthy day away from going again to hell. Now, all of it begins once more for Pérez ultimately.

His life is in danger, however I am positive he’ll get out of this… though I do not know the way. It could price him twice as a lot to get sober once more, and his residence is in jeopardy as effectively. So it will not be straightforward…or fairly.

That is the place our The Good Doctor overview ends. We might be again on January 23 with
a brand new overview. Keep tuned and Blissful Holidays!
