The Good Doctor season four is very different from previous series with the drama having a great emphasis on the coronavirus pandemic. Covid-19 has had a massive impact on Dr Shaun Murphy (played by Freddie Highmore) who hasn’t been able to spend as much time with new girlfriend Lea Dilallo (Paige Spara) as he wanted. In the latest episode though, they seemed to take another step in the right direction.
WARNING: This article contains spoilers from The Good Doctor.
Shaun accidentally insulted Lea saying how she loved the way she looks but said her voice was nasal.
After telling him how he hurt her, Shaun apologised and told Lea he loved her and she thanked him for his honesty.
Fans were left unsure as she didn’t say she loved him back but as they are still in the early stages of their relationship, it might just not be the right time.
While The Good Doctor has been putting Shaun and Lea in the spotlight in series four, there may be another romance in the making.

Are Morgan Reznick and Alex Park going to get together?
In Not The Same, Dr Alex Park (Will Yun Lee) turned up late for work and claimed it was because of a flat tyre.
When Dr Morgan Reznick (Fiona Gubelmann) tripped up Alex in his lie, he admitted he was actually late as he was finalising his divorce.
He also goes on to mention he had been living in a motel for a while as he sold his home when he believed he was moving to Arizona.
Alex was eager to spend more time with his family at the end of series three but due to the pandemic, he wasn’t able to go ahead with the move.
Both Alex and Morgan have had a tough time as of late in The Good Doctor.
Alex is now divorced and clearly disappointed at how he hasn’t been able to move closer to his son.
Morgan on the other hand is no longer able to work as a surgeon after she treated a patient far too soon following the operation on her hands at the end of series three.
Instead, she is working as an internist which is to do with internal medicine.
Thankfully, Morgan has been able to keep her job at San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital but has been seen lashing out at her colleagues so must be taking out her frustrations on them.
As they are both at a crossroads in their lives, Morgan and Alex may seek comfort in one another in the coming weeks.
The Good Doctor will continue on Monday November 30, on ABC.
The next episode is called Fault and the synopsis for the show reads: “Shaun questions his decision to give the new residents autonomy when one of his intern’s misdiagnosis of a patient has dire consequences.
“Morgan and Park bond over failed relationships.”
As Alex and Morgan “bond” in the upcoming episode, could this be the beginning of another romance?
The Good Doctor is available to watch on ABC.
