Warning: spoilers ahead for Episode 15 of The Good Doctor Season 4, called “Waiting.“
The Good Doctor delivered a heavy hour of television with “Waiting” as the doctors tried to save the lives of two young boys who had been shot at a political protest, and the odds weren’t looking great for them. The doctors were struggling with the weight of their decisions, the mothers lashed out, and Lea wound up in the mix in the waiting room. Everything seemed wrapped up nicely by the end of the hour, however, complete with both boys surviving. So, when Lea collapsed as a cliffhanger, it raised many more questions. The biggest: is The Good Doctor setting Shaun and Lea up for a tragedy?
