And that's why I like Olivia. At the end of the day, Glassman tells Shaun that he intends to speed up his cancer treatment and recognizes that Shaun still has feelings for Lea, telling Shaun that he deserves to be happy. In "SFAD," Shaun is able to empathize and bond with Tara, a young woman whose lack of immune system has trapped Tara in a bubble for her whole life. Shaun repeatedly insists that he had done nothing wrong as he had saved Lim's life, but both Lim and Glassman push him to take some kind of accountability for his actions. Unaware that Lea is trying to right this wrong for Shaun, he purchases an embroidery kit as a tactile reminder to try and deal with the feelings of being abandoned by yet another person dear to him in his life. Dr. Shaun Murphy Descriptive Personality Statistics Dr. Shaun Murphy is a character from The Good Doctor. When Shaun went into sensory overload again during a C-section, his first solo surgery, he was able to fight through it and come up with a solution to the problem. Wedding planning also continues in Measure of Intelligence, with Lea stumbling across a Save-the-Date card addressed to Shauns mother that she is unsure whether she actually wants to mail it. Shaun recognizes Liams sensory issues and urges the medical staff not to touch him when Liam is brought in in an agitated state. In Rationality, Shaun is faced with the challenge of getting Salen to take down the large billboard she put up outside the hospital that uses him and his ASD status as a literal poster boy for diversity hiring at the hospital. Both Shaun and Lim admit that they miss each other and agree to begin working on repairing their friendship and are seemingly close again within a few months, likely aided by the fact that Shaun's persistence finally pays off in finding a way to safely fix Lim's spine. A furious Lim tells Shaun that the incident will go into his file after the nurse filed a formal complaint and another such incident will result in Shaun's termination from the hospital, leaving Shaun distraught. Attending the birthing class, they end up being thrown out when Shaun keeps interrupting the instructor with unhelpful medical details about the birthing process that disrupts the class and disconcerts the other couples in attendance. In doing so, Shaun made Claire a better doctor because he inspired her to look through his eyes and save a life. Shaun is visibly upset by this, insisting that Glassman was right and he shouldnt be driving any cars. He dislikes direct questions and confrontation. Shaunie (by Lea Dilallo) Jared ultimately approaches Lim about resuming his residency and he is granted a position on Shaun's team, although Jared will have to be a first year resident again. He was bullied by other children in school and teased for being autistic. Refreshingly, he is quite down to earth, even at times quite unsure of himself. Similar traits. Claire later spots Shaun and Carly sitting down with a bag of chips and going over more questions, drawing a smile from Claire. Carly reminds Shaun of their first meeting when he threatened to throw a rock through the pathology lab window to get her to help him immediately and admits that she thought it was cute how much he cared and then she realized Shaun might be the most genuine person she has ever known when they started working together in pathology. He also begins acting more and more on his own with cases instead of working with his residents. However, after being reminded that his job is also to teach, Shaun settles the matter by keeping Danni out of the surgery, but instead having her watch so that she can still learn. The operation is ultimately a success despite the intense pain Kerry had to suffer rather than risk a relapse. In Gender Reveal, Lea and Shaun make plans to go to birthing class and also learn that their baby is going to be a little girl. I am not sure Freddie Highmore is neurotypical. As Shaun grows closer with his colleagues, he begins forming lasting friendships with people who come to understand him on a personal level. He buys a car fragrance tree that smells of pine trees because thats what he smelled when they were driving out of the city on their road trip, listening to the playlist that she put together for him. When Melendez is ready to send Shaun away from the OR, Dr. Andrews intervenes and pushing Melendez to treat Shaun like any other resident, which he grudgingly does (Mount Rushmore). In Irresponsible Salad Bar Practices, Shaun is somewhat flustered by the idea that he may have an irrational crush on radiology resident Cintia D'Souza, even though hes happy in his relationship with Lea. In the aftermath, Lea kisses Shaun, having realized just much she loves him after almost losing Shaun. In "Letting Go," Shaun rather brashly accuses Dr. Paul Nakano of making a mistake with his behavior getting to the point that Nakano claims that in Andrews' position, he would've fired Shaun. Shaun later watches Carly in the pathology lab from a distance before leaving without saying a word to her. Shauns attire of (not his) choice requires a cummerbund that he finds incredibly restrictive and uncomfortable, and Lea realizes last minute that theyve been hiding the truth from each other that they dont actually want to go through with a big TV wedding, theyd rather celebrate their special day in a way that both are comfortable and happy with. Shaun is of course extremely worried and wants to participate in the surgery, quoting that hospital policy would technically allow him to since he and Lea are not married. In "Growing Pains," Shaun's combination of empathy and blunt honesty results in his patient and his mother reconciling with each other, impressing Lim who states that conflict resolution is an important quality for an attending physician. Shaun says he would definitely listen since he hates the sound it makes. Shaun decides he wants to practice having dinner with Leas parents by inviting Morgan and Dr. Glassman to pretend to be Pam and Mike Dilallo. Following Shauns surgical mistake, the medical team deliberates whether to report the error, knowing full well it could cost Shaun his job and will likely cost Glassman the hospital presidency. He has an aversion to physical touch unless he is the one to initiate it or it comes from people he is very comfortable with. Ironically, when the time comes, Shaun himself ends up conflicted on the matter and he is relieved when an alternative arrives at the last minute. Affiliation: Lea Dilallo (wife)Cintia D'Souza (former crush)Carly Lever (ex-girlfriend) At the same time, Shaun struggles with his differences of opinion about household habits with Lea, especially after Julianne tells him that he's in the "wet cement year" of marriage when such habits become permanent for the rest of the relationship. At the same time, Shaun's relationships with Lim and Glassman have both become strained following Lim's paralysis which may or may not have been as a result of his unauthorized surgery to fix Lim's liver. Shaun and Leas wedding on the hospital roof is beautiful, Glassman manages not to botch the speech this time and talks about how much Shaun means to him, and they happily dance with most of their closest friends and colleagues in attendance. When their first operation less painful operation fails, the team is forced to go with the original more painful option which they try to sooth using restraints and music. Glassman eventually confronts Shaun and accuses Shaun of isolating himself and insists that Shaun must take some kind of responsibility for his actions. While Shaun is unable to contribute his knowledge, Claire replicates the conditions behind Shaun's thought processes with Zack and manages to figure out what Shaun had been trying to tell him, realizing that he was actually trying to say "treponema." Shaun is revealed to have a great degree of proficiency, if not fluency, in Spanish. After he starts dating Carly Lever, Shaun is comfortable with her kissing him, but not with holding hands. With Rosalind in heart failure, Park convinces her ex-husband Leo to be at her side as she dies. Lea seems happy with that, but admits to Shaun later that shes also disappointed that shes not going to have a more ceremonial white-dress wedding a concern that Shaun voices to Dr. Glassman. Shaun is letting Lea make all of the decisions in terms of their wedding theme, meanwhile struggling with a difficult medical case and a misdiagnosis he made that was all captured on camera. Both agree that its not too troubling to have a harmless crush as long as nothing more develops from that. He struggles with the decision not to join Dr. Lim in her fight to get Salen extricated from St. Bonaventure. Carly eventually admits that she thought her friends might have trouble accepting Shaun, but realizes that she was wrong and apologizes. In "Fractured," Carly states that she found Shaun's bluntness and obvious care for his patients cute when they had first met in "Mount Rushmore," a contrast to many people who are put off by that bluntness and that after working together in pathology, she believes Shaun to be the most genuine and honest person she knows. He invites a doula to their home to discuss the details of their birthing arrangements and he also wants to help make the world better for women who are still disadvantaged in some aspects. When Shaun was first hired at the hospital, Andrews had expressed concern about this exact sort of thing as a reason against hiring him, worried that Shaun's autism and communication issues would negatively impact his ability to lead his own residents. As a young child, Shaun was raised alongside his younger brother Steve by their mother and father. He gets up and sees Lea is in the living room, who tells him that she cant sleep, plagued by doubts whether having a child now is the right thing to do. Shaun puts the baseball on display on his shelf, next to the framed photo of him and Steve. Shaun ultimately runs off in the middle of the conversation after coming up with the solution to his case, but is intrigued by Claire's claim that the walk was a second more relaxed date. Lying in bed with Carly afterwards, Shaun smiles in excitement at having had his first time.

However, when Shaun, Andrews and Glassman check on a recovering Lim, they discover that her injuries have left Lim paralyzed from the waist down. Appearances Biographical Information They find out that Lea has a condition called vasa previa that is subsequently surgically corrected. He enlists the opinion of several hospital colleagues, even sets up a poll to hear thoughts from a larger audience. At the end of the episode, Lea does move back in and Shaun tells her he thinks having her back in the apartment is not the same as when they were roommates, its better. The Good Doctor Wiki is a FANDOM TV Community. He has also completely lost his aversion to physical intimacy with Carly with their first attempt at sex ending due to Carly's hesitations rather than Shaun's. Shaun says the price of parenthood is not worth it if it makes him upset and irrational. Shaun pointedly rebuked the parents afterwards as they had caused their son to get sick and they subsequently began listening to their son rather than unilaterally making decisions for him. To Shaun's excitement, Carly calls herself his girlfriend and the two officially define their relationship as boyfriend and girlfriend. There are many different levels to the spectrum; Murphy can communicate with the other doctors but often has trouble. Carly's efforts ultimately save James' life and she and Shaun have sex for the first time. Unknown to Shaun, Lea was rescued already and overhears Shaun on the radio talking with Vera about his love for her. Born: Shaun admits that it's been a hard night, but he never would've been able to save Lim without Lea's support. When both Lea and Shaun are sitting in the waiting room of an abortion clinic, Leas name is called, but she hesitates. Together, the two take an unsanctioned road trip in Leas vintage car while Glassman worries about an AWOL and radio-silent Shaun. Chambers is on the autism spectrum and his wrist pain is caused by his repetitive suturing technique. At the same time, Lim calls Carly in on the case of James McDougall who has swelling due to fluid buildup. However, Shaun's actions that day made Andrews proud of his sacrifice which he thanks Shaun for and tells him that "very few things that are worthwhile in life come without a cost Shaun.". What Lea doesnt know is that Shaun didnt tell anyone that he left with her, so Glassman has to lie to Melendez about Shaun taking a few personal days while Glassman himself is worried and keeps calling Shaun. He has been married to Elaine O'Reilly since June 2016. Shaun's ability to relate to Tara due to them both being outsiders for most of their lives leads to him greatly empathizing with Tara and forming a friendship. Shaun was clearly uncomfortable treating the young man, but his unique insight into the young man's condition allowed him to recognize that he was autistic and not psychotic as was originally believed, help calm him through most of an MRI and figure out what was wrong with the patient. About to head for marital bliss, the wedding doesnt go as planned, however. In "The Family," despite his initial reluctance to form personal connections with his patients, he becomes close with Isla Liu, opening up to her about his guilt over Steve's death to help Isla with her own guilt. Shaun is very much against the idea and refuses to see said therapist. With Glassman, he managed to develop his skills to be a doctor and to later control his emotions and remain calm in tough situations. Shaun seeks solace with Lea that night and tells her hes glad shes there with him. The two also share a very easy working relationship, quickly falling back into working together and bouncing ideas off of each other like no time at all has passed. Steve appears to Shaun, reassuring his brother that his death wasn't Shaun's fault and urging Shaun to let go of his guilt over it. Lea, Glassman and Debbie Wexler all try to give Shaun advice with Debbie telling Glassman to push Shaun on the matter and not to coddle him leading Glassman to explain to Shaun his own love for Debbie and what makes it worth it to Glassman. Following his night spent with Lea, Shaun is left struggling with his feelings for Carly and Lea, causing him to avoid Carly, hurting her in the process and then even more when Shaun reveals the truth about his night spent sleeping with Lea when he couldn't do that after weeks of practicing with Carly and tells her that with Carly he feels he needs to impress her but he doesn't feel that way with Lea. Shauns father's method of child-rearing eventually turned violent, ultimately resulting in him killing Shaun's rabbit when he was fourteen. At the same time, Glassman begins avoiding Shaun so that he won't have to deal with his own emotions on the matter and brushes off the concerns of both Andrews and Lea about Shaun's behavior. Profession: In "A Big Sign," Shaun, Asher and Danny treat Julianne, a famous marriage counselor with a brain tumor. This makes them rethink and they come back to invite Shaun and Lea for dinner later. During the subsequent surgery, when the patient grabs his hand hard due to the immense pain she is in, Shaun does not stop her and instead tells the other doctors to allow it as it distracts the patient but to hurry though he is clearly uncomfortable, though this is likely at least in part due to how hard the patient was gripping his hand. As the situation appears to be resolved, Lim goes into distress due to previously undetected damage to her heart. She tells Shaun that they both need to think about whether this is the right time to raise a child. At the end of the episode, he accompanies Lea home but she collapses outside of the hospital with intense lower belly pain. Lea tells him shes glad that Shaun bounced back more easily than she did, and it appears they are at a bit of an impasse. Shaun Robert Murphy is the main titular protagonist of The Good Doctor. Shaun is then forced to treat pregnant mother-to-be Viola who suffers complications requiring a C-section. Adult Lea encourages him to try and drive her car, which Shaun is initially reluctant about since Dr. Glassman had never wanted him to drive, saying that Shaun would get distracted and stop focusing on the road. Shaun admits that Carly that his greatest fear is that he will end up alone and that Carly will tire of his issues and leave him. When Lea gets pregnant again, Shaun goes somewhat overboard in preparation for the baby, some of which is justified as Shaun and Lea had been warned by Lea's doctor that it may never be safe for her to get pregnant again after Lea's earlier miscarriage. The doctors are forced to operate on Lim without bypass and Shaun suffers a meltdown when they can't find the problem, consumed with guilt over his failure to save Steve and his inability to save Lim. Shaun eventually uncovers that the man has been inadvertently poisoning himself with the herbs he is taking for virility. Lea does get somewhat stressed out but insists to Shaun that everything is fine, flip-flopping between wanting to cancel the engagement party or not. Lim later suffers an emotional breakdown over her condition, blaming Shaun for it and angrily declaring that she hates him. Shortly after Lim ends their friendship, Shaun begins rearranging his and Park's shared office furniture, leading to him and Park clashing before moving into a disused storage room as his private office. Shaun later decides to wear the cap during the procedure itself. In "Fractured," after returning to work, Shaun works with Morgan to treat Kerry, a woman with a badly broken leg who refuses anesthetic due to being an opioid addict. His autism is depicted as obvious to many of the people he interacts with. In "Mutations," Carly and Shaun continue to struggle with intimacy, even after Lea moves out. He displays several traits of his condition, including heightened sensory sensitivity, abnormal inflection when speaking, lack of interest in eye contact, and heavy reliance on routine. In Cheat Day, Shaun stands up for himself when he tells Salen he wants to rescind his decision to quit his job that she grudgingly accepts on the grounds of not wanting the PR disaster that Shaun threatens otherwise. Professionally, Shaun gets wrapped up in one of Andrews cases of a young woman who is slated for a risky surgery that Shaun advises against because he is convinced it will kill her. Shaun and Leas relationship grows and flourishes over the course of the season, which Shaun supporting Leas business endeavors when she partners with Jordan and Glassman on the gut monitoring sensor they want to develop (Growing Pains). As a result of his autism, Shaun has trouble with cognitive empathy, but is fine with emotional empathy, meaning he can pick up when someone is upset but often has trouble discerning why, this is something that he himself notes. Despite a complication, Shaun, Andrews and Claire are successfully able to complete the procedure and save the patient's face. He reminisces good memories from his med school days where Glassman gave him an embroidery kit to practice his suturing technique, schooling Shaun on how to navigate tricky situations such as being treated unfairly by his superiors, and particularly remembers how Glassman told him hed always be there for him promise that Glassman is now breaking by being absent from his life with no attempts to communicate with Shaun at all. Chambers is offended by the suggestion that he may have ASD. As a result, Shaun is left unsure if it is worth pursuing a romantic relationship is worth it even after seeing two couples who experienced issues and came out well. However, Shaun's diagnosis is proven to be correct, saving Sadie's life and Han publicly credits Shaun as the pathologist who made the discovery. Steve and Lea help Shaun to focus and he is able to save Lim's life. What began as a description of 10 cases by Dr. John Langdon Down in 1887 at the Earlswood Asylum in London culminates now, 130 years later, with. In a notable departure from his usual behavior, Shaun lies about how he found Zack and tries to seek treatment for his injuries on his own rather than getting help. At the same time, he treats a conspiracy theorist who believes he is being poisoned and who trusts only Shaun out of all the doctors due to his blunt honesty. Despite being hurt by the truth, Carly appreciates it because Shaun's honesty is what she likes about him and doesn't want to lose him. However, during surgery to fix it, Shaun discovers that the bride has extensive cancer. Just before admitting his love for Carly, Shaun takes and holds her hand for a brief time despite his previous aversion to holding hands with Carly at all. winchester 1887 hammer spring
