Although he still has a very boyish appearance, Freddie Highmore has already played the role of autistic genius surgeon Dr. Shaun Murphy for a total of one hundred episodes. In the hour that marks the milestone, the hospital experiences a loss of power due to a heatwave. Shaun’s wife, Lea, played by Paige Spara, collaborates with his mentor, Dr. Glassman, played by Richard Schiff, to find a quick solution before the hospital is forced to shut down, which could endanger the lives of patients. In the operating room, Shaun has a disagreement with new resident Danni Powell (played by Savannah Welch) on the treatment of a patient, which puts his ability to compromise to the test once more. For a detailed explanation of everything that happened in The Good Doctor Season 6 Episode, 6 Recap continue reading the recap at tvacute.com.
The Good Doctor Season 6 Episode 6 Recap
Lim is hot inside the hospital. Powell advises that she play wheelchair basketball because the gym’s air conditioning is on. Lim refuses and gets an iced coffee instead. Shaun shows up. Today he is collaborating with Powell. He notices Lim perspiring and thinks that the surgery would have improved her condition. Powell’s advice to her not do it irritates him.
Even though there is a blackout, an elderly man is wheeling a cake down the hallway. Working with older people who like dancing and may have dementia is what Asher and Morgan have to do. Morgan finds this annoying. Asher finds them to be adorable. Edna, an elderly woman with a pounding heart, is a client of Park’s. She claims that for 90 years, her heart has kept her going. After collapsing, Park must break her ribs in order to reactivate her heart. On the CT scan, he discovers a tumour that extends from her lungs to her abdomen. She wants it taken away. He believes she is not a candidate for surgery and should be left alone to enjoy her remaining six months. She wants a second viewpoint.
Working with a man who lost water after riding his bike in the heat, Powell and Shaun. Powell believes that due to his condition, they won’t be able to insert an IV. She is sent away by Shaun when he claims he needs a more qualified physician. Later, the man tells Shaun that the people that test him the most are his least favourite workers. Before Shaun can respond, the man begins to have trouble breathing and collapses.
Jordan receives the patient’s test results. The heat has permanently and irreparably damaged Mae’s organs. She will pass away soon. Mae has no relatives she can call. She lost her husband to cancer. She advised him to wait till he was better even though he had always wanted to see Paris. Shaun and Powell talk in the server room since it’s cooler there. They disagree about the patient’s problems. The servers are ready to overheat, Lea realises. There is a momentary power outage. The backup generators start up. Lea later queries Shaun over his issue with Powell. She irritates him and is unreachable, in his opinion. Lea attempts to explain that he is the same way, but he doesn’t get it.
Glassman checks Edna and reiterates the dangers of the procedure. In addition to another butterscotch pudding, Edna insists on the procedure. When Glassman tells Park, Park is outraged because he believes Edna is unaware that this could destroy her quality of life, assuming she lives at all. Glassman informs him that he is not in charge. Lea tries to explain to Andrews that the top two levels must be turned off in order to prevent the servers from overheating and causing a complete blackout. Andrews turns down.
On their patient, Shaun and Powell perform exploratory surgery. They talk about how they don’t like one another. They also understand that their patient may not survive and that their situation is more serious than they originally anticipated. Powell and Shaun disagree once more about how to proceed in the server room, and Shaun determines Powell is contradicting him and removes her from the investigation. There is a server death.
Powell visits Lim’s workplace. Lim lost two hours of work because her WiFi didn’t function and she feels hot. Powell again proposes going to the gym. Physical therapy is given to Lim. Powell believes that she should accept the fact that she is healthy but impaired since she cannot see why she needs it. Jordan informs Perez that there is nothing they can do to save their patient, despite his best efforts. The missing Alzheimer’s patient is found by Morgan and Asher, but he wanders off. When they return the patient to the hospital, they learn that Jerome actually located Arthur Abbott in the laundry area. This guy is who?
The patient of Shaun says he wants Powell back and challenges all of Shaun’s choices. He says that he does the same thing Israeli intelligence does, which is why he has a successful business. Both organizations always have a “tenth man” present to rigorously question all decisions. Powell and Lim visit the gym. Lim believes the hoops are too high and has planned to watch from the sidelines. The rival team’s captain believes Lim would be a good player because of his height. Jordan promises to take Mae to Paris before she passes away, telling Perez.
Shaun complains about Powell to Glassman, saying that the patient loves her but he does not. Glassman claims that many of the people he deals with are unpleasant. While he and his father-in-law did not get along well, he performs a magic trick that Glassman had been trying to perfect since Maddie was five years old. They got along better after that. Lea watches in horror as each server overheats. Lea and Andrews converse. She hopes she won’t be let go. He hopes he won’t be let go by the Board. Lea leaves to place a few calls.
Park informs Glassman in the operating room that his grandfather had pancreatic cancer. The surgery his grandma forced him to get destroyed him. The discomfort can be too much at times, according to Glassman. Edna will still be able to enjoy what is left of her life despite being paralysed. Powell is difficult for Shaun to get along with because she dislikes pancakes and prefers movies about bad weather. He claims he still doesn’t like her. The elderly man has been located. A lawyer-grandson of his is on the way to pick him up. Morgan and Asher are concerned. Before Mae passes away, Jordan and Asher employ virtual reality to give her a trip to Paris experience.
Shaun dismisses Powell’s suggestions. She encourages him to stop and that their shared experience of being disabled and treated differently is what unites them. Although Shaun has a plan for the procedure, the power goes out. In the end, Powell and Shaun collaborate to save the patient’s life. Lea says she’s not sure whether it will work because the server isn’t designed to handle this traffic, but she takes action to turn on the power. Son and granddaughter of the elderly man show up to pick him up. Asher fears that Morgan and he will be taken into custody on kidnapping charges. The man’s kid claims that the heat and his father’s sudden propensity to stray were responsible for saving his life. The fact that they are heroes astounds Asher. Edna gets up. She consumes butterscotch pudding with her medical team. Jordan giving the dying woman her final dream impresses Perez. Morgan tells Asher at the 100th birthday celebration that she is not interested in dating. She merely desires to become a mother. Powell and Shaun discuss historical surgical instruments. That links them together.
