Season 4 of The good doctor has put Lea and Shaun’s relationship through the wringer. After starting the season finding their balance as a couple, their lives were given up when Lea found out she was pregnant. Unfortunately, she lost the baby and now the couple are doing their best to move on.
The latest episode of the show, “Forgive or Forget,” sees Shaun planning a camping trip for him and Lea, something far beyond his comfort zone. They want to get out of the mess they are in, they need to try something new. And despite having some reservations, Lea agrees to go and they find a nearby campsite after being turned away in Yosemite National Park.

The trip starts off well, with Shaun and Lea doing their best to bond over the other campers’ activities. However, when it starts to rain and the water enters the tent, Lea decides that she is done and goes to sleep in the car. He wakes up the next morning to find Shaun sitting alone on a bench. Feeling guilty, Lea tells him that they can still do the hike he planned before heading home.
Once again, the pair begin to bond, so much so that Lea wants to take a photo of Shaun on the road to capture the moment. But when Shaun tries to lean on a log, he falls and seriously injures his ankle. Away from the camp, Lea has no choice but to operate on her boyfriend if she wants any chance of saving his foot.
With Shaun giving his address, Lea uses the items at her disposal, including a bottle of tequila, to open it and repair his ankle. She is stable at first, but after Shaun loses consciousness from blood loss, hope seems lost. Fortunately, being the tough person she is, Lea buckles up and finishes the procedure before any permanent damage is done to Shaun’s foot.
As the couple head to a nearby hospital in an ambulance, the EMT tells Shaun that he is lucky to have someone like Lea by his side. Shaun agrees, and it’s clear right now that despite everything that has happened, the couple have not forgotten what they mean to each other. They still have a long way to go, but after the event in the woods, there’s nothing Shaun and Lea can’t handle if they’re together.
Created by David Shore, The Good Doctor stars Freddie Highmore, Antonio Thomas, Richard Schiff, Paige Spara, Fiona Gubelmann, Will Yun Lee, and Christina Chang. New episodes air Mondays at 10 pm ET / PT on ABC.
