The Good Doctor: How did Dr Glassman’s daughter Maddie die in The Good Doctor?

THE GOOD DOCTOR season 3 saw Dr Glassman help Morgan with her condition. But how did his daughter Maddie die?





The Good Doctor has been given the green light for season four by ABC so there will be more episodes to come of the medical drama. A release date has not yet been announced but it is likely to be delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The season three finale left fans in tears and many are wondering what’s next for the staff at the San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital.

Dr Claire Brown (played by Antonia Thomas) was left heartbroken by the death of Dr Neil Melendez (Nicholas Gonzalez).

After the earthquake, a building collapsed with Melendez inside and at first, it seemed like he would be alright.

But it wasn’t long before he was struck by a pile of rubble and died from septic shock.


Meanwhile, Dr Morgan Reznick (Fiona Gubelmann) performed an emergency life-saving operation during the aftermath of the earthquake.

Dr Aaron Glassman (Richard Schiff), who is the only person aware of her rheumatoid arthritis, informs Morgan she may have just jeopardised her career, as she was meant to still be recovering from her operation.

By performing the surgery, Morgan may have permanently damaged her ligaments which could lead to her losing her job as a surgeon at the hospital.

Dr Glassman is a fatherly figure to many of the staff at the San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital.

He has looked out for Claire on numerous occasions and from the get-go took Dr Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) under his wing.

At times, Dr Glassman has watched over Shaun too intently, making him feel claustrophobic and is sometimes reminded to take a step back.

Most recently, he has been taking care of Morgan, watching out for her and seeing her in private about her condition. ( click next to continue reading )
