“The Good Doctor” Season 1, episode 2 will see Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) on his first day of work at St. Bonaventure Hospital.

Dr. Murphy, who is on the spectrum, will struggle to prove himself to his peers. He will also have a hard time communicating his treatment plans for his patients. In the teaser released by ABC for “Mount Rushmore,” Dr. Claire Brown (Antonia Thomas) asks Dr. Murphy what he thinks his job was at the hospital. He replies by saying that it is to save people’s lives.

While talking to Dr. Neil Melendez, the lead character also has a hard time understanding what the head doctor means. When he utters a sarcastic comment, Dr. Murphy thinks that he is being praised. But even though Dr. Melendez is giving Dr. Murphy a tough time, it seems that he will soon come around.

During his conversation with Dr. Aaron Glassman (Richard Schiff), the latter asks him if he plans on treating Dr. Murphy the same way he would treat other doctors at the hospital. He says yes even though Dr. Murphy has autism. But in the next scene, Dr. Melendez seems to ask Dr. Marcus Andrews (Hill Harper) to give him some special treatment.

Meanwhile, Dr. Murphy will also break the rules at the hospital by administering certain types of treatments that none of the other doctors have tried. He is also seen asking a staff to prepare operating room four for an upcoming surgery, but his attention is called since he is not allowed to do so.

But even though his first day at work will not go as planned, Dr. Murphy will be able to help some patients and inspire those who are working at the hospital. He will also defy all expectations and prove that he deserves his spot at the teaching hospital. Otherwise, Dr. Glassman could lose his job as president.
