The St. Bonaventure surgical team is pushed to their limits when they head to Guatemala on a medical mission in Season 4’s two-part finale (concluding June 7).

“Putting them in an even more intense environment, living together, gives us an opportunity to explore emotional connections and challenges in a way we haven’t before,” explains The Good Doctor showrunner David Shore. Expect to see “the heart-wrenching process” of choosing which locals get one of the limited number of surgeries — and also what happens when the power goes out mid-procedures.

Plus, 'Wonder Years' reboot joins Wednesdays, and 'Grey's Anatomy' and other favorites are back.

This experience may also help heal Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) and his love, Lea (Paige Spara), as they grieve — in very different ways — her recent miscarriage. “Ironically,” says Shore, “Shaun will be excited by these new challenges.” Lea, who’s on site for tech support, initially has a tougher time being surrounded by families who are poor yet have the children she desires.

Also on the itinerary: meeting Mexican mission leader Dr. Mateo Rendón Osma (Osvaldo Benavides), a potential love interest for surgery chief Audrey Lim (Christina Chang). Hints Shore, “He’s a guy who embraces life, but he also may have a secret.”
