The Good Doctor season 4 spoilers reveal that episode 9 will not air for a few weeks due to COVID-19 causing delays. ABC finally announced when we can expect to see a new episode of the medical drama. As for what to expect next, Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) faces temptation and Dr. Audrey Lim (Christina Chang) could be forced to take a leave of absence.

COVID-19 Pushes Back New Episodes

Fans were able to see Monday’s episode of The Good Doctor. However, season 4, episode 9 will not air until February 15, 2021. It is not the only show that has been forced to push airing new episodes. This Is Us was also postponed by a few weeks. NBC and show bosses cited “COVID-related delays.”

The Good Doctor Season 4, Episode 9 Air Date

ABC confirmed that a new episode of the medical drama will air on February 15. As of right now, no episode title or synopsis is available. However, the promo for the next episode is available and it focuses on Shaun dealing with the complicated issues relating to his romance with The Good Doctor cast member Lea Dilallo (Paige Spara). Lim is also seen and it appears that she still doesn’t want to deal with her PTSD.

Dr. Shaun Murphy Faces Temptation

The Good Doctor season 4 spoilers reveal that Shaun is interestingly naviatging love and relationships. The last episode showed him dealing with meeting Lea’s parents. When the series returns to ABC next month, we will see that Shaun is dealing with unexpected feelings with a new colleague. There are scenes that show Shaun is accused of having a major crush on the newcomer. However, it goes both ways because she actually seems to seduce him, leading to a kiss. As he tries to figure out his new confusing development in his romantic life, he asks others about facing temptation. He seems quite upset that his love for Lea isn’t enough.

Dr. Audrey Lim Still Not Facing PTSD

In season 4, episode 9, we will also see Lim not dealing with her PTSD. Dr. Aaron Glassman (Richard Schiff) has a discussion with her about it, but she doesn’t seem to want to talk about it at all. She keeps pushing it away and distracting herself with hospital duties. When Glassman pushes, she admits being given medication for it and was told her symptoms shouldn’t be that bad. We also have The Good Doctor Dr. Claire Browne (Antonia Thomas) making more attempts to reach Lim.

How much longer can Lim continue going on like this? It seems the situation will continue to spiral. At the very least, LIm might end up having to take a leave of absence. The worst case scenario is her symptoms spiral out of control and someone ends up hurt or worse.
