MONDAY night’s episode of The Good Doctor had emotions running high for both characters and fans, but the upcoming season 3 finale will have everyone even more on edge.
The two-part season-ender features an earthquake — and the promise of death.
Who dies in the The Good Doctor season 3 finale? Fans have some guesses on who’s leaving the ABC show.
In Season 3, episode 18 (titled “Heartbreak”), viewers saw Shaun (Freddie Highmore) lash out at Lea (Paige Spara) after her rejection, Morgan (Fiona Gubelmann) come clean about her arthritis and Claire (Antonia Thomas) realize she’s in love with Melendez (Nicholas Gonzalez).
After all of that, the promo trailer for the finale aired, featuring an earthquake at San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital, and warned: “Not everyone will survive.”
Fans are pretty positive that the Good Doctor himself, Shaun, is safe, but everyone else appears to be fair game in their eyes.
Sharing their thoughts on social media, Reddit and article threads, some say they will “riot” if Melendez or Glassman dies while predicting the character death will be one of the more supporting characters.
After Shaun’s break-up with Carly (Jasika Nicole) and Lea’s rejection, the two characters don’t fit into the overall storylines of the show as much as others, making them prime suspects in fan theories.
One fan wrote: “I kinda feel like the one who dies will be Lea. With what’s happened the last episodes, I’m just not sure how they’ll keep her around.
“She was the friend/love interest but she’s not anymore, so I could definitely see her dying and Shaun having to process it all.”
Another seconded that, saying: “Yeah, I agree with this. I’d really rather nobody die at all, myself, but I can’t see it being a main team member, so Lea, or a character along those lines, being at risk makes the most sense.”
Others found it to be a big “uh oh” when they noticed Morgan is nowhere to be found in the natural disaster-filled trailer.
One social media user is betting “10 to 1 on Reznick” being the one to die in the Good Doctor finale.
There are quite a few fans thinking Andrews (Hill Harper) will be leaving because “he didn’t have much to do this season anyway,” as well as those who believe Park (Will Yun Lee) will be the one to go.
Aside from the trailer, the synopsis for season 3, episode 19 (titled “Hurt”) teases: “In the first episode of the two-part season finale, the city of San Jose is rocked by a massive earthquake.
“[It] puts the staff of St. Bonaventure Hospital on high alert as they race to assess the damage and account for the safety of their colleagues and friends.
“Meanwhile, Dr. Neil Melendez and Dr. Aaron Glassman are attending a charity event when their lives are threatened by the earthquake.”
The cast celebrated wrapping filming the final two episodes of the season last week, but it seems fans won’t have much to celebrate after watching the two-part finale later this month.
The Good Doctor returns with the first part of the season 3 finale on March 23 at 10 p.m. on ABC.
