The Good Doctor Season 4 is running off with a few sad vibes for now. Yes, we met with a tragic moment from our favorite characters of Shaun and Lea recently. They went through a miscarriage and are looking for a much-needed break. While Lea leaves for home, Shaun still finds himself at the hospital hoping he can still work.

We saw Lea finally breaking down and even Shaun when he shouted out when Lea’s mother called. But it’s high time for some positivity for them as they are on leave. Anyway, here we are taking a look at everything that went down in the previous episode of the show. Plus, what we can expect from the upcoming The Good Doctor Season 4 Episode 18.
