Finally, speaking to TV Insider about the finale, The Good Doctor executive producer David Shore was asked about worrying fans with what happened to Lin. He replied, "Well, I hope they're worried. That's the whole point! [Laughs] We don't do anything that's not meaningful. As writers, we want to make sure that each story is significant. That's not saying that we're going to lose her. We love her. But there are challenges up ahead."prevnext

"Rollercoaster of Emotions"
Same... though as soon as Lim offered to go grab more glasses I knew what was waiting. It was just too odd of a time to send her off screen with minutes left till the ending.— M0710NM4N (@M0710NM4N) May 17, 2022
"What an episode with a rollercoaster of emotions!" somebody said. "When Dr. Lim offered to go downstairs I knew what was waiting for her! She may be in a hospital... but hopefully she can hang on for 3 – 4 months till Season 6 kicks in!"prevnext
