Good Doctor Season 6 Premiere Explained: Audrey Lim, Shaun’s Brother

the good doctor‘s intense season 6 opener ended without a single victim – but that doesn’t mean there are no more physical and emotional scars to heal.

Both Dr. Audrey Lim as Nurse Dalisay Villanueva survived their stab wounds – although it may take a while (if ever) before Lim gets back on a motorcycle. After going through successive surgeries, Lim woke up in recovery to find she was paralyzed. Is dr. Shaun Murphy to blame?

The newly married surgeon went against Glassman’s orders and went ahead with an alternate procedure in an effort to save the chief’s liver. Ultimately, the pressure of having a friend and colleague at the table caused Shaun’s dormant trauma over Steve’s death. It wasn’t until he had a vision of his dead brother (again played by Dylan Kingwell) that he was able to restrain himself and perform Lim’s second surgery.

Villanueva’s abusive ex-boyfriend Owen also survived the disaster he started, but not for a lack of attempts to end his own life.
