Glassman, recover from your self.

On The Good Doctor Season 6 Episode 4, Glassman ghosted for Shaun for so long as he might and obtained offended at each Andrews and Lea for bringing their issues in regards to the scenario between Shaun and Lim to him.

When he lastly talked to Shaun, he stated quite a lot of ridiculous nonsense that led Shaun to throw him out. The entire thing was an train in frustration, and this annoying story is not practically over but.

Glassman has at all times been Shaun’s surrogate father in addition to his mentor. He is understood Shaun’s autism for years and is aware of Shaun’s idiosyncracies out and in.

The issue is Glassman’s ego is getting in the best way. He is satisfied himself that Shaun’s refusal to do issues Glassman’s method brought about Lim’s paralysis, regardless of no clear proof that the opposite surgical procedure would have made a distinction.

He thinks he might have stopped Lim from struggling paralysis if solely he’d been 5 minutes earlier and compelled Shaun to do a distinct process. That is pure ego — there isn’t any proof in any respect that Glassman might have managed this.

Andrews: Murphy needs his personal workplace.
Glassman: Does that shock you?
Andrews: No, however why did he come to me as a substitute of his supervisor? Is there one thing between Lim and Murphy I ought to find out about?
Glassman: Why are you asking me?
Andrews: Since you’re near each of them.
Glassman: So meaning it is my accountability to straighten this out?

Moreover, Glassman’s annoyance with Andrews and Lea was not cheap. He acted like everybody ought to have the ability to learn his thoughts and notice he was avoiding Shaun.

He is at all times helped Shaun navigate tough social conditions, so it should not be stunning that Lea turned to him along with her issues about Shaun’s psychological well being.

And if one thing is up between Lim and Shaun, Andrews must know that to do his job successfully. In any other case, he must take care of issues that would have been prevented if he had full info.

As for what Glassman stated to Shaun, it felt extra like projection than the rest.

Shaun prefers to work alone and does not get alongside nicely when he has to share area with others. Glassman is aware of this, or he ought to in spite of everything these years of coping with Shaun’s autism.

Glassman: Why are you isolating your self?
Shaun: I am not. You are the one who canceled our breakfast.
Glassman: As a result of I did not need to take care of this. I am offended at you, Shaun.
Shaun: Oh. Why?
Glassman: As a result of Lim is paralyzed. You did not hearken to me and –
Shaun: The parameters modified.
Glassman: Lim is paralyzed and he or she’s offended at you.
Shaun: You shouldn’t be offended at me. Lim shouldn’t be offended at me. I saved her life.
Glassman: You are the surgeon. Lim is paralyzed and it’s a must to take accountability.
Shaun: You’re improper.
Glassman: You’re appearing such as you did in highschool. You’re a married man and also you’re working away, shrinking your world.
Shaun: You’re being imply. You’re calling me a baby and taking Lim’s aspect. I don’t need you in my workplace.

Glassman, nevertheless, isolates himself when he will get burdened. He has been avoiding Shaun, Lim, and any point out of the 2 of them in order that he will not must say what he actually feels in regards to the scenario.

As Shaun identified, Glassman was the one who stood him up. Glassman was additionally the one who was being immature; he’d prevented Shaun and snapped at all people who dared strategy him about this example.

Shaun obtained embroiled in a foolish argument with Park over inserting the furnishings of their shared area. Since nobody would assist him work it out, he discovered his personal answer: a distraction-free storage room he might use as a personal workplace.

Is it bizarre? Possibly. Inconvenient? If Andrews wants that space for storing, it will likely be.

However for now, it really works for Shaun, and that is the necessary factor. He is not isolating to keep away from his emotions — that is Glassman. His neurodivergent mind merely works higher in a much less distracting atmosphere.

The medical storylines appeared like they have been there to open the door to the extra private storylines as a substitute of being full-fledged tales in their very own proper.

Andy, the man with the severed foot, lay in mattress bleeding whereas Perez and Jordan went to the seaside to await the invention of Andy’s foot and had a semi-flirtatious dialog. A secondary motive for the story gave the impression to be for Park to narrate to him due to Park’s catastrophe of a love life.

At this level, plainly Morgan made an enormous mistake turning down that job in New York. She and Park are again to doing nothing however sniping at one another, and for good measure, she had some foolish argument with Glassman over who needed to take an undesirable affected person.

It could have ended the obnoxious banter between her and Park if she’d gone to New York.

Shaun’s medical story was a bit extra concerned. Shaun had to determine learn how to save Mr. Navy Reenactor’s arm.

Nonetheless, the lion’s share of the airtime given to this story concerned Asher pestering Powell about why she joined the Nacy.

Powell did not need to discuss it, however each time she rotated, Asher was standing there, able to interrogate her in regards to the causes for her service.

He was attempting too laborious to get to know her, and there was no actual motive for it. Certain, he would possibly discover her story fascinating because it’s totally different than any he is ever recognized, but it surely wasn’t an emergency for him to be taught it.

Could not Jerome have distracted him with extra call-room intercourse? Sheesh.

And what the heck was that with Jordan and Perez?

Their relationship adopted a predictable however acceptable path towards romance when Perez immediately pulled again.

Jordan was left simply as a lot at nighttime as viewers have been about why Perez rejected her. Possibly he has a strict no-dating coworkers coverage, or maybe one thing occurred prior to now that makes him need to take issues very slowly.

Regardless of the case is, he wants to clarify to Jordan precisely why that kiss did not really feel proper, if for no different motive than viewers need to know.
