The Good Doctor Review: What Did Sean Murphy Decide About His Future?

There is a reason The Good Doctor’s return had to be split into two parts. The title, “Islands”, referred to something other than its relation to Shaun Murphy’s spontaneous vacation. In a way, he did go off to an ‘island’ in his mind. It was a place he could be without pressure or expectation to behave in a certain way. Taking that time with his neighbor/love interest Lea allowed Shaun to feel free. More than that, he felt trusted to take control of his own life. That is such a rare feeling in a world where so many things are

This video from a bar in Arizona doesn’t give much of a reason why he and his friend are being tossed to the curb but it’s kind of funny to watch anyway since after all that’s happened he really deserves this.
