The upcoming episode of "The Good Doctor" will probably be the hardest for Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore). In "Heartfelt," Dr. Murphy's quest to make a teenage patient's dream come true will bring him face to face with a murderer.
Episode 15 will see Dr. Neil Melendez (Nicholas Gonzalez) tell his fellow doctors that young patient needs a liver donor in order for him to survive. Dr. Claire Browne (Antonia Thomas) later on tells Murphy that they've found a match.
However, she also reveals that the donor is a man from prison causing the young doctor to be anxious at the idea that a murderer will be coming to his workplace. The revelation also causes a moral dilemma for the parents and the patient.
The prisoner will be taken out of prison and will be transported to the hospital. However, Dr. Murphy's concerns will be proven true as the prisoner is planning to escape from prison. After his handcuffs are removed, the prisoner points his gun at the hospital staff. As the escape attempt unfolds, Claire and Shaun are left in the same room.
