Comedian Chris D'Elia stars as Dr. Shaun Murphy's new neighbor in The Good Doctor. Fans of the show were surprised to see him show up in the previous episode and loved seeing him again in "She."
At the end of the previous episode, "Seven Reasons," we were introduced to the new neighbor. D'Elia's character Kenny moved in after Lea (Paige Spara) moved to live with her family in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
D'Elia confirmed on Instagram that he appears in a "bunch" of episodes for the rest of The Good Doctor's freshman season. Based on the reaction from fans, he is more than welcome to come back.
The episode started with Kenny asking Shaun to use his television before the cable guy comes. Kenny is also puzzled by Shaun refusing to sign up for cable.
I literally only watch 3 channels too, Shaun. #TheGoodDoctor— Talk Nerdy With Us (@TalkNerdyWithUs) February 6, 2018
One fan wondered if Kenny will have to go to the hospital so they have to say, "Oh my god, they killed Kenny," a reference to South Park.
#TheGoodDoctor Will Kenny ever go to the hospital and they can't save him, so they'll be like "Oh my god they killed Kenny"— One of the host of #Saturdaynightscifi (@caramind93) February 6, 2018
The Good Doctor fans welcomed D'Elia with open arms.
One fan hopes Kenny turns out to be a good guy, and not someone who uses Shaun.
I hope Kenny is going to be a nice neighbor not a user. #TheGoodDoctor— Steph (@BellaTheBooBoo) February 6, 2018
Others are not fans of Kenny, who always comes in through Shaun's back door.
I see the beginning of a good friendship here. #TheGoodDoctor— Heidi (@scifiFm5) February 6, 2018

It is clear that Shaun is open to becoming friends with Kenny. He opens up about where he got the stuff in his apartment.
After helping a transgender patient at the hospital, Shaun asks Kenny to help him pick the lock for the pool. He just floats, and does not swim around at all. What is he doing?
"Understanding," Shaun replies.
