The Good Doctor: 10 Burning Questions Ahead of Season 5's Return

ABC’s The Good Doctor faces a somewhat uncertain future. For the first time, the Freddie Highmore-fronted series has been placed on an indeterminate hiatus, following an abbreviated fall run of just seven episodes.

In the meantime, a new drama — Promised Land — is set to assume medical procedural’s long-held Mondays-at-10 pm time slot beginning Jan. 24.

Heading into its extended break, The Good Doctor left audiences with plenty to ponder — including, but not limited to: the future of Shaun and Lea’s relationship; Glassman’s seemingly shrinking role, both as Shaun’s mentor and as president amid Ethicure Medical’s takeover; and the fate of St. Bonaventure at the hands of the negligible Salen Morrison.

Scroll down to jog your memory heading into Season 5B, then hit the comments and tell us how you think any of the following storylines will be resolved in the new year.
