The Good Doctor aired one of its most intense episodes so far and fans were bound to react to it in droves. In a nearly breathless episode, fan favorite Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) was pushed to the edge with multiple misfortunes and a terrible turn of events.
This particular episode of The Good Doctor was an absolutely edge-of-the-seat drama that encompassed accidents and deaths to lies and betrayal. The show brought about a full blown dramatic storm before going on a mid-season break, and will should keep fans hooked until the season resumes.
Let's see how they feel about this.
Overwhelming response to 'The Good Doctor' mid-season finale
The episode had iconic moments and highly dramatic scenes. The audience's overwhelming response was evident in social media posts during and after the seventh episode of Season 5 was aired. Audiences commented on the different moments of the episode.
One thing that seemingly caught everyone's attention, despite so much happening, was the final scene of Shaun's breakdown. Freddie Highmore's acting was highly praised by fans, with some even saying he deserves a primetime Emmy for this particular scene.
Another thing that was talked about a lot on social media platforms like Twitter was how long the next episode will take to air. Since the show has gone on a break, we cannot expect a new episode anytime soon. In fact, it is set to be a spring release. Some fans reacted to this in a humorous way while others were disappointed. It is something they can do little about except wait.
