What to Expect From 'The Good Doctor' Season 4 Finale

Expect an emotional finale from The Good Doctor tonight as series 4 draws to a close.

The episode is titled "Vamos" which is appropriate for the Spanish-speaking Guatemalan surroundings. Since the title means "Go" when translated into English, it could suggest that we will see a lot of progression for the characters in the drama.

The medical drama follows autistic surgeon Dr. Shaun Murphy, played by Freddie Highmore, at the fictional Sane Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital. However, tonight's finale sees Shaun thrown out of his comfort zone as he performs surgery in Guatemala.

Where Are 'The Good Doctor' Characters in Season 4?

It's likely we'll be spending a lot of time away from the usual surroundings of a California hospital as most of the characters flew to Guatemala with Shaun in the previous episode. Claire (Antonia Thomas), Morgan (Fiona Gubelmann), Lim (Christina Chang), Andrews (Hill Harper), Park (Will Yun Lee) and Shaun's partner Lea (Paige Spara) also travelled to South America in order to perform twelve surgeries on patients who would otherwise die.

The new surroundings provided unique challenges for each of the doctors in last week's episode, the first part of the finale. Claire bonded with a single mother while Morgan struggled to cope after having to reject a young boy as a possible candidate for surgery.

In tonight's episode, Shaun must adapt to his current environment as he is forced to perform surgery without electricity after the power goes out.

Dr. Lim strengthens her relationship with newcomer Dr. Mateo Rendón Osma (Osvaldo Benavides) as they face difficulties during their surgery.

What next for Shaun and Lea?

Shaun and Lea have been through the wringer in season 4. The couple were expecting a baby together but Lea suffered a miscarriage due to a blood clot located in the baby's umbilical cord. Since then, a grieving Lea has fallen into depression and revealed to Shaun in the last episode that she is considering moving back to Pennsylvania.

Freddie Highmore revealed to TV Insider that viewers should expect a "huge end to the season for the two of them." He said, "going through something that huge and meaningful can either make or break a relationship and we'll see what happens to the two of them in this last one."

He also suggested that it's not just a big finale for Shaun and Lea. Expect to see the relationships change between Dr. Lim and Mateo, as well as between Morgan and Park.
