Returned for its sixth installment in October 2022, The Good Doctor is airing Dr Shaun Murphy (played by Freddie Highmore) yet again and his medical acumen as he faces new challenges in his personal life. With its latest episodes tracking every detail in Dr Muprhy’s life, ABC viewers are perched on the edge of their seats to know what will happen next to Shaun and his colleagues at St Bonaventure Hospital.
The previous episode, titled “39 Differences” underscores the actions of the loved ones and how they work through their differences in making important decisions as they learn how to compromise. The viewers catch a glimpse of how Shaun (Freddie Highmore) and Lea (Paige Spara) realize their disparate parenting styles when the former places their child on a preschool waiting list, which is an Ivy League college feeder. Things catapult down as the young doctor gets a patient in the ER whose parents are having a skirmish over their own parenting choices.
The episode concludes with the most heartwarming experience shared between Shaun and Lea at Dr Glassman’s house as the baby kicks Lea in the stomach, which leads to the establishment of a ground reality between the couple and helps them focus on what really matters.
The conclusion piqued the interest of the viewers, who are madly anticipating the arrival of the next episode. That being said, it brings us to the most obvious question…

Typically, this heartwarming drama airs a new episode every Monday night. Be that as it may, it is a bit saddening that it didn’t air its fourteenth episode Monday, February 20. In fact, The Good Doctor will reportedly return for season 6, episode 14, on Monday, February 27, on ABC. Buckle up your seat belts already, because we have one more week to go until we get more from Shaun and the rest of his team.
The official synopsis of the upcoming episode, titled “Hard Heart”, reads:
“When a three-year-old arrives at the ER, the team immediately recognizes he is having a stroke. However, Dr Shaun Murphy’s diagnosis of the underlying cause doesn’t solve the problem which has Dr Park search deeper.”
