The Good Doctor

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 10 p.m. on ABC

The Good Doctor returns with an intense outing focused on Christina Chang's Dr. Audrey Lim. Aptly titled "Lim," the follows Lim on one very stressful day at work as she copes — or better yet doesn't — with leftover emotional trauma from the pandemic. "It's really more [about] the discovery that something's going on versus completely exploring it," says Chang. "It does get explored in future episodes. But in this one, it's sort of just the beginning of her realization that something traumatic is going on." Even though it was a lot of work, Chang loved the fact that she was in every scene. "It was flattering, and I felt like, 'Oh, this is an important mantle that I'm wearing,' and I felt honored," she says. "It was a really good time to be on set all nine to 10 days [of production]." —Chancellor Agard
