The Good Doctor wasn’t on last week — but the good news is, the hit ABC show DOES return tonight on ABC.

The last episode aired back on February 26 and saw Dr. Murphy’s teenage patient rallying the help of online friends to get the life she always wanted after being confined to her home due to a rare heart condition.

Tonight, Season 1 Episode 16, Pain, sees the team treat a patient who has to make a huge choice between remaining how he is or undergoing a surgery that could change his life by allowing him to walk — but that comes with big risks.

As he struggles to make the decision, he asks Dr. Shaun Murphy what he would do if he had to make the choice for himself.

After last week’s hiatus, The Good Doctor returns tonight, 3/12/18. The series will also return next week with Episode 17, Smile, in which Dr. Murphy question whether a young patient should undergo an operation that would allow him to smile for the first time.
