Good Doctor EP Ponders If Shaun Will Ever Overcome Guilt About [Spoiler]'s Death Following Season 6 Premiere

The Good Doctor‘s intense Season 6 opener ended without a single casualty — but that doesn’t mean there aren’t physical and emotional scars left to heal.

Both Dr. Audrey Lim and Nurse Dalisay Villanueva survived their stab wounds — though it might be a while (if ever) before Lim gets back on a motorcycle. After pulling through back-to-back surgeries, Lim woke up in recovery to discover that she was paralyzed. Is Dr. Shaun Murphy to blame?

The newly married surgeon went against Glassman’s orders and carried on with an alternate procedure in an attempt to save the chief’s liver. Eventually, the pressure of having a friend and colleague on the table triggered Shaun’s dormant trauma about the death of Steve. It wasn’t until he was visited by a vision of his dead brother (played again by Dylan Kingwell) that he was able to compose himself and proceed with Lim’s second surgery.

Villanueva’s violent ex-boyfriend Owen also survived the rampage he started, but not for lack of trying to end his own life.
