‘The Good Doctor’: Can Shaun and Lea Really Be Trusted?

As we suspected, Valentine’s Day was indeed awkward for The Good Doctor’s  Carly and Shaun (mostly Carly). Once again, there’s drama involving Lea (Paige Spara). It seems like whenever Lea is around, there’s friction between Shaun (Freddie Highmore) and Carly (Jasika Nicole). Making matters worse, Lea is going to be around a lot more. Shaun arranged for her to work at the hospital. Can Shaun and Lea really be trusted? Here’s Showbiz Cheat Sheet’s take on the drama triangle that is Shaun, Carly, and Lea.

Shaun skips lunch with Carly to have lunch with Lea

During one scene, Carly asks Shaun if he wants to get lunch.However, Shaun declines and says he has too much to do. In the next scene, wesee Shaun and Lea having lunch together. He uses the time to talk to Lea abouta patient who has a challenging case. This is time he should be spending withCarly, but he decides to have lunch with Lea and share his work problems withher instead. “[The patient] has a mysterious condition. But I realized I coulduse our lunch to help understand it,” says Shaun.

To his credit, Shaun does mention he was going to cancellunch with Lea, but as we know now, he doesn’t. Shaun didn’t take the time tothink about how his actions would make Carly feel. This isn’t looking good.

Shaun arranges for Lea to work at the hospital

During lunch, Lea mentions she will be quitting her job. Later,Shaun comes to the rescue and asks Dr. Glassman if he would hire Lea. Glassmanhas been having tech problems, so Shaun thought Lea would be the best person tohelp out. Glassman agrees to give Lea a try if Shaun takes time to considerappearing in an on-camera news interview about successfully solving acomplicated patient case. Carly and Shaun both work at San Jose St. BonaventureHospital, so things could become uncomfortable for them when Lea becomes ahospital employee.

Carly discovers Shaun and Lea had lunch together

Shaun mentions he had lunch with Lea. As you would expect, Carly was upset to hear they had lunch because Shaun didn’t mention it before. When Carly goes outside to get some air, she sees Morgan and decides to vent about the situation. Morgan points out that Carly is probably jealous of Lea and that she needs to work on this. She also says this is the kind of situation Carly is going to have to expect if she dates Shaun.

Will things get too close for comfort with Shaun and Lea?

Lea seems to have a thing for Shaun. She once told Shaun heis “the most honest guy” she knows. Although she hasn’t verbally expressedromantic interest, she seems to have some feelings for him. It could just befriendly, but Lea seems to be on the cusp of having full-blown romanticfeelings for him.

Most of the time, Lea seems a bit conflicted about how shefeels about Shaun. One thing that’s clear is Shaun has some romantic feelingsfor Lea. Although he says they’re just friends, and he loves Carly, his actionsshow his heart is with Lea. We think he wants to work things out with Carly,but he’s still emotionally attached to Lea. There are definitely conflictedfeelings on both sides.

Lea and Shaun have already been physically close (rememberhis tripto Wyoming?), so it wouldn’t be surprising if they had another moment likethis in the future. Now that Shaun is more comfortable being physically closeto people, we wonder if it’s just a matter of time before he has a weak momentand becomes intimate with Lea. Working with someone can bring people closertogether, so this situation could be a disaster waiting to happen. Good luck,Carly.
