Emotions were running high in this week’s episode of The Good Doctor, with just a few weeks left before the current season comes to a close. Viewers took to Twitter as the episode aired on ABC and Shaun Murphy (played by Freddie Highmore) and Lea Dilallo (Paige Spara) took time to heal.

Shaun and Lea struggled to comprehend their overwhelming grief in this week’s tragic episode of The Good Doctor.

In episode 17, ‘Letting Go’, Shaun dives head first into work while Lea takes time off to recover from her miscarriage five months into her pregnancy.

While Shaun still struggled to understand what his girlfriend is feeling, he eventually realised that spending all his time at the San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital may not be the best thing for their relationship.

However, more complications arose when Lea decided not to tell her mother, Pam (Julie Warner), about the loss of her baby.

Despite their heated phone call, Shaun managed to keep her secret and fans are hoping Lea will be able to tell the truth to her mother when she’s ready.

The tail end of The Good Doctor season four has been delivering one tearjerker after the other over the last few weeks.

As Lea and Shaun mourn their insurmountable loss, fans took to social media to voice their emotional reactions to this week’s heartbreaking episode.

On Twitter, one viewer said: “Poor Shaun and Lea. There’s no playbook for dealing with loss.”

“They’re clearly still not in a proper state to do anything productive. Hope they can limit the damage and weather the storm together.”

Viewers had conflicted reactions when savant surgeon Shaun Murphy found a new lease of life at work, in spite of the recent tragedy.

After eventually realising the extent of his girlfriend’s grief, he finally pulled himself away from the operating table to care for Lea during her time of need.

As one fan noted: “Love that Shaun and Lea are helping each other through this loss. They need each other.”

And another said: “Good to show that Lea isn’t alone while dealing with this. It’s happened to more people than you think.”

Luckily, a nurse was also on hand after last week’s procedure to provide Lea some much needed assurance, revealing that she had also had two miscarriages in the past.

One Twitter user commented: “That was so reassuring of that nurse to tell Lea that it happened to her too… twice. I really hope Lea will become a mom one day.”

With The Good Doctor set to return for a fifth season, it’s hoped it won’t be too long before Shaun and Lea try for another baby.

Thankfully, it also appears the fan favourite couple will be stronger than ever when the series returns next week.

A new promo for episode 18, ‘Forgive and Forget’, has given fans their first look at Shaun and Lea’s camping trip, which will give them a chance to escape from the pressures of the hospital and work on their relationship.

Unfortunately, their romantic getaway becomes a disaster when Shaun suffers a serious injury and Lea is forced to take action.

The Good Doctor continues Monday, May 24 on ABC.
