“The Good Doctor” Season 1, episode 3 will see Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) and Dr. Claire Browne (Antonia Thomas) trying to save another patient.

In the promo released by ABC, the two doctors will be tasked to pick up an organ that was donated to their patient who is waiting for a transplant. While on the road, Dr. Murphy starts checking the organ with his eyes closed. He realizes that there’s something wrong with the organ and tells Dr. Browne that they should conduct the surgery right inside the vehicle.

Just like in the previous episode, Dr. Murphy will employ non-traditional methods in his attempt to save his patient’s life. This will leave him with another target on his back. After all, there’s already an ongoing discussion regarding whether or not someone like him, a person with autism, should be allowed to work at a prestigious institution such as St. Bonavanture Hospital.

Elsewhere in episode 3, titled “Oliver,” Dr. Neil Melendez (Nicholas Gonzaelez) and Dr. Jared Kalu (Chuku Modu) find out that their patient isn’t being completely honest with them. This is a huge problem because the patient’s lie could cost him his chance at receiving life-saving surgery. In the teaser released by the network, Dr. Murphy momentarily panics when he receives instructions from Dr. Melendez. But he immediately participates in saving the patient’s life.

Meanwhile, “The Good Doctor” received a full season order from the network last week after its second episode aired. According to Deadline, additional episodes have been ordered for the series because it has received high ratings during its first two weeks.

During week two, the series garnered a total of 10.9 million viewers. After the show’s live and three days ratings were tallied, the total number of viewers who tuned in for episode 2 reached 16 million. The publication noted that “The Good Doctor” is currently the highest-rated and most watched program on a Monday night behind CBS’ “Big Bang Theory” Season 11.

“The Good Doctor” Season 1, episode 3 will air on Monday at 9 p.m. EDT on ABC.
