The Good Doctor Season 5 Episode 4 will continue to see Salen Morrison (Rachel Bay Jones) testing Shaun Murphy's (Freddie Highmore) patience.

In the previous episode, Shaun became upset when he found out that Salen used his autism diagnosis to make more money for St. Bonaventure Hospital.

After all, Salen put up a tarp revealing that Shaun is on the Autism Spectrum even without his permission.

Unfortunately, the new owner of St. Bonaventure Hospital has no plans to back down even though she already has an idea of what triggers Shaun.

In the trailer for the upcoming installment, Shaun enters his patient's room only to find Salen there.

Since Salen has no medical background, Shaun couldn't help but wonder what she's plotting this time around.

It didn't take long before Salen gushed over the dad of Shaun's patient. And she also tells Shaun to treat the patient's dad like a consulting physician since he has a background in medicine.

Since Shaun doesn't do well with sudden changes, it's evident that he is upset.

In the next scene, Shaun is in the meeting room with his patient's dad and Marcus (Hill Harper). He says that the suggestion doesn't make sense before he lashes out and asks why his patient's dad is even there.

Unfortunately, Marcus doesn't take Shaun's side this time around. He urges him to leave the conference room, and this upset him even more.

In another scene from the trailer, Lea (Paige Spara) talks to Glassman (Richard Schiff).

She tells Glassman that Shaun usually struggles when he meets a new boss. She's concerned about her future husband.

However, Glassman reminds Lea yet again that she doesn't need to coddle Shaun.

It's not difficult to predict that Shaun and Lea's relationship will continue to suffer because of Salen. After all, the lead character will always be stressed because of his new boss.

Lea has already started preparing for her upcoming wedding to Shaun. Since she's a perfectionist, she wanted to take charge of every little detail from her wedding.

In The Good Doctor Season 5 Episode 3, she already sent out invitations for their big day.

However, Lea decided not to mail an invitation to Shaun's estranged mom, Marcie. She later told Glassman that she didn't want Shaun to become upset when he saw his mom at their wedding.

After all, Lea wants Shaun to keep moving forward instead of living in the past.

Luckily for her, Shaun didn't get mad when she told him she didn't mail Marcie's invitation.

There are already so many issues going on even before Lea and Shaun's big day. And we are predicting that their wedding won't push through.

Before The Good Doctor Season 5 premiered last month, ABC dropped a trailer for the medical drama where Shaun apologizes to Lea while they are at their wedding venue.

Shaun's apology may have to do with the cancelation of their wedding. But it's also possible that he is apologizing for an entirely different reason.

Next week, the network will release a special program called Real Queens of Hip-Hop: The Women Who Changed the Game.

There are rumors that The Good Doctor is catching up with the airing of its upcoming episodes because filming for the series commenced much later than usual.

However, this doesn't seem plausible because ABC already dropped the official trailer for The Good Doctor Season 5 Episode 4. This means that the installment is ready for airing.
