The Good Doctor boss breaks down Claire's 'hopeful' exit, Shaun and Lea's [SPOILER]

Warning: This article contains spoilers for the season 4 finale of The Good Doctor.

While The Good Doctor's season 4 finale featured the departure of a major character, it was still one of the medical drama's happier enders.

Picking up where part 1 of the finale left off, the hour found the doctors still working in Guatemala. Their time there inspired Dr. Claire Browne (Antonia Thomas) to quit her job at St. Bonaventure so she could stay and work at the clinic, a move that Lim (Christina Chang) fully supported and thus marked Thomas' departure from the show. Meanwhile, Morgan (Fiona Gubelmann) and Park (Will Yun Lee) mended their friendship and declared their love for each other, Lim's fling Mateo (Osvaldo Benavides) decided to follow her back to the States, and most importantly, Lea (Paige Spara) asked Shaun (Freddie Highmore) to marry her &#x; and he said yes.

Below, The Good Doctor showrunner David Shore breaks down Thomas' goodbye, Shaun and Lea's new relationship status, and more.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: First off, how hard was it to find a location in Vancouver that could stand in for Guatemala?

DAVID SHORE: We owe a great debt to our crew in Vancouver. [They] did a great job of finding places in British Columbia. We were very worried about it. We wanted to be as accurate as we could. If it was any other year, there's a good chance we could've actually gone [to Guatemala], but that just wasn't feasible. They found great locations for us.

How did you settle on this being the way you'd write Claire off the show? What made it this feel like a satisfying conclusion to her journey?

The thing that I kept talking about was [that] we put that character through so much over the previous years. We've had our share of sad endings on this show, and it's an ending so there's a sadness to it, but I also wanted this to be more of a beginning at the same time. I wanted this to be hopeful and positive. So the phrase that we kept using was, "I didn't want her to be running away from anything. I wanted her to be running to something." So it was really important that this was a good place for her and we all felt good about it.

Did Antonia have any input on Claire's ending?

I spoke to her about it and I explained what I just said to you. I spoke to her quite a while ago and I was really excited about it. I wasn't excited about her leaving. It's very sad that she's leaving, but I respect her choice. I don't want anybody on the show who doesn't want to be on the show &#x; I mean, if they want other opportunities. If she was going to do another TV show, then I might be a little less happy [laughs], but if she's looking for other opportunities, then great. She's done great work for us for four years. She's given us everything we could've asked for. So I wanted to give her a good sendoff and I wanted to make sure she was happy with it. We talked about it and had a good talk.

Over the past four seasons, Claire's empathetic perspective has been an integral part of the show. Do you have any idea of how you'll deal with that void?

We've got a lot of characters on it. I think there are some characters that fill that aspect to some extent. We're not looking for a new Claire, but you're absolutely right that we want to make sure somebody represents that point of view. And that might change from episode to episode. I also believe that Claire has impacted the rest of them. I think they're all carrying a little bit of Claire as they go forward.

How early did you decide you wanted to end the season with Shaun and Lea getting engaged?

About halfway through the year we started thinking in those terms. We've had a lot of downer things, and we decided to go with some more positives this year. They're still just as, I hope, compelling as to what questions this raises and opportunities for storytelling; I'm hoping it opens those doors for us. But it's been a rough year [for everyone], we wanted to give everybody a break. [Laughs]

Why did this feel like the right move after they went through the hardship of the miscarriage?

That was exactly it. Coming out of that, we didn't want to break them up &#x; at least not yet. We like them together and want to keep exploring [them]. Every year we want to take things to a new level and explore something new with Shaun and the rest of the characters. They went through a hardship and they came through. He proved himself as a good boyfriend and worthy of her love. I think she's sensing it at this point as he stayed with her.

Having Lea propose to him was cool because Shaun was the one who was pushing for this relationship last season.

I think that was really important. You hit the nail on the head to some extent. Last year, he was pursuing her. I mean, they're still very much in love, but he's not pushing her. I think given what she's been through &#x; they both went through it, but particularly her &#x; it was important that she be the one who signaled she was on a more positive track. I think if he had asked her, no matter what her answer might've been, it wouldn't have felt the same.

Park and Morgan also got together in the finale. From your point of view, what makes them such an interesting and right pairing?

They joined the show together, and we just had lot of fun with them. You can't write a story, see how it plays, and then write the next story. You have to be ahead and anticipating. But from season to season, you certainly see how things are playing, and you make choices about putting the two of them together and have them teasing each other and make each other miserable in a fun way. You see how that works and go, "Okay, they're clearly flirting." So you take it to the next level, you pull it back, and you take it to the next level. I hope this is satisfying but makes sense. Those are the surprises that you strive for on TV. I think we got a lot of that going on.

Morgan admitted she hoped physical therapy would help her do surgery again, but that turned out not to be the case. Has she made peace with the fact that she can't do surgery anymore?

The short answer is yes. That's been a year long arc in the background at times, but she hadn't made peace. That doesn't mean it's not going to continue to be painful, but she's such a rational person, such a strong person that she's going to force herself, and she's got Park to help her through it.

Can you talk about the decision to introduce Mateo and promote Osvaldo Benavides to series regular for season 5?

He was great! We've been talking about bringing in a new doctor, a different point of view. When we started talking about going to Guatemala and leaving Claire behind, it seemed natural to [think], "If we're leaving her behind, maybe we should take one with us," and to set Lim up. It all came together very nicely. Lim had a little fling [and] gets her groove back is kind of what it is, but then the thing she thought was a fling is going to come back with her. I think that feels nice.

What new point of view does Mateo bring to the show, and presumably the hospital?

The writers' room just started up, and we're just starting to explore that. We really enjoyed watching him, and we really enjoyed what he did in those final two episodes. So that question you just asked me, we're all asking ourselves at this point.

Now that Shaun is engaged, what's in store for him both on that front and the professional front in season 5?

We had him dating a couple years ago, and then we had him in a mature relationship, and now we have him in a committed relationship. Or we're on the way to that. Every year we try to challenge him. It's not just about challenging him, but it's also about getting his insights. As I've said many times, the show is at its best not when Shaun learns but when we learn from Shaun. So what I'm looking forward to is watching his growth and also his insights. Professionally, the same thing. Last year was a certain amount of him supervising and the challenges of supervising, which are brand-new to him. He's even further up now and competing for work at this point. They're reaching the end of their residency. What does that mean to them all?

Is the end of their residency and what they do next driving the next season?

Room just started up. We're asking these questions ourselves.

The Good Doctor&#;s bittersweet finale marked the departure of a beloved character and new beginnings for practically everyone.

On the heels of Claire&#;s decision to accept a surgical position at a rural hospital in Guatemala (Antonia Thomas&#; series departure was revealed ahead of air Monday), Lea proposed marriage to Shaun — and he said yes!

Elsewhere on the couples&#; front: Morgan and Park professed their love for each other; Andrews revealed that his wife Isabel (previously played by Marsha Thomason) had left him for another man; and Mateo (newly promoted series regular Osvaldo Benavides) decided to return to the States to be with Lim&#; and face a decades-old warrant for his arrest.

Below, executive producer David Shore weighs in on the status of The Good Doctor&#;s many couples, reflects on Claire&#;s exit storyline (and her possible return) and looks ahead to Season 5.

TVLINE|Before we discuss Shaun and Lea&#;s engagement, let&#;s discuss the tragedy that nearly tore them apart. Why did you decide to have Lea miscarry? Why have this couple share that particular trauma at this point in their relationship?
The Good Doctor 4x16 - Shaun and Lea Suffer MiscarriageWe simply weren&#;t sure we wanted to go down the parenthood road yet. There were things we wanted to explore in their relationship before we started exploring that. The other thing was, for people who go through this sort of thing, it felt like the right barrier to explore it. When something like this happens, it&#;s amazing what you hear suddenly, like that scene [where Nurse Villanueva tells Lea, &#;It also happened to me&#;]. And we wanted to dramatize this pain, this particular pain, and not short-change it. Carry it out over several episodes [and see how it impacted this couple]. It&#;s an unusual piece of mourning that people go through.

TVLINE|After watching Lea grieve for multiple episodes, why was it important for her to be the one to propose to Shaun?
Part of the reason she proposed to him was because of what she saw from him in this episode, and how supportive he is. I mean, literally within the episode, he waits with her [at the hospital]. They sat and bagged that child throughout the night. And he waits for [Lea] to be ready [to move forward in their relationship]. It was important that it be on her schedule, not his.

TVLINE|Knowing that this was going to be Antonia Thomas&#; last year, did you go into Season 4 with a specific path in mind for Claire?
I went into this season hoping she would change her mind. [Laughs] That didn&#;t happen, which wasn&#;t overly surprising. She&#;s been very appreciative, and I know she had a great time on the show. She tells me she&#;s grateful for the opportunity, and we will miss her. But we put that character through so much, and she rose to the occasion every single time. Antonia was so good, and I so look forward to watching her in whatever she does next.

The Good Doctor 4x20 - Antonia Thomas as Claire BrowneTVLINE|What about in terms of Claire&#;s exit storyline?
We didn&#;t want the ending to be another blow [to the character]. I wanted her to be running towards something, not away from something. We wanted to find a place for her to go that felt like a great fit for her.

TVLINE|Had you discussed any alternate exit strategies? This season saw Claire reconnect with her father. She also contemplated a trip to Paris&#;
We discussed some stuff, but we never felt [anything else was right]. It&#;s not like [the trip to Paris] was something we planned on doing [for her exit]. That would have been her running away. [Accepting the job in Guatemala] felt like running towards something&#; It was the first and only idea I discussed with Antonia, and she was very excited about it.

TVLINE|Antonia has said that she would &#;absolutely&#; be open to reprising her role as a guest star. Is it your hope that we&#;ll be able to check in with Dr. Browne in a season or two and see how she&#;s doing in Guatemala? Or perhaps bring her back for Shaun and Lea&#;s wedding?
Yes, we would love to find places to bring her back. She&#;s such a part of this world, and will always be a part of this world, so it will be lovely to see [Claire], for her to bring a story to us, or just to come in for the highlights of peoples&#; lives.

TVLINE|Among his peers, Claire has always been the person Shaun turns to for advice. In her absence, do you see Shaun relying on another colleague to fill that role? Or do you think he&#;s reached a point where he doesn&#;t need that role filled anymore?
We all need that role filled, to some extent. And Shaun is [less reliant on her], to some extent. I think the rest of our characters are carrying a little bit of Claire with them, so I think they all have a little bit of that [wisdom] in them now, to give what Claire gave in the past. But it would be foolish to try and design a character to try and be Claire

The Good Doctor 4x20 - Shaun and Glassman's Zoom CallTVLINE|At one point, Glassman acknowledged that Shaun needs him less and less these days. How will their dynamic evolve in Season 5, as Shaun prepares to get married?
He needs him less, but he needs him differently, more so. Shaun is growing, like we all do. It&#;s the classic parent/child relationship. As your children grow up, they need you less for a lot of things, but they never completely stop needing you. That is the purpose of the parent: to get the child to a spot where they&#;re independent and can stand on their own two feet. I think Glassman has done a wonderful job at that, and Shaun has done a wonderful job himself.

TVLINE|Why has Glassman kept his split from Debbie a secret from Shaun? I half-expected him to say something during their Zoom call.
The simple answer to that question is Shaun has [embarked on] one of the most important weeks of his life [on this surgical mission], and Glassman does not want to throw that at him. We&#;re certainly going to have to deal with the fallout of what happened, but this was not the time to do it.

TVLINE|Andrews&#; impending divorce shouldn&#;t have come as a surprise — we haven&#;t seen Isabel since Season 1 — but it still caught me off-guard. Did a lack of storylines for that relationship influence your decision to end it off-screen? 
That&#;s exactly right, yes.

The Good Doctor 4x20 - Will Yun Lee and Fiona Gubelmann as Park and MorganTVLINE|We witnessed a more vulnerable side to Morgan in the finale. She allowed herself to open up to Park and to a healthy, committed relationship. Will we see more of Morgan in this new light during Season 5?
Look, Morgan is always going to be Morgan. She&#;s always going to have that [vulnerable] side to her, but we&#;ve always viewed her, and I think Fiona&#;s done a great job of making her a fully dimensional character. [She] doesn&#;t want to show these sides to her, but they&#;re there. She chooses to emphasize one side, and probably that side is more prominent in her than it is in a lot of people. [Laughs] But yes, she will probably let her guard down a little bit more, especially with Park — and that may turn out to be a challenge in that relationship.

TVLINE|Similarly, Dr. Lim opened up to Mateo about her PTSD. Now that she has confronted her trauma, can we expect sunnier days ahead for the chief of surgery — especially now that Mateo is following her back to the States?
I think we can expect some sunnier days, absolutely. Of course, these are doctors dealing with death, dealing with challenges in their own lives, and that won&#;t stop. But this is certainly a sign that she is on the way to recovery, or at least learning to cope.

The Good Doctor 4x20 - Christina Chang and Osvaldo Benavides as Lim and MateoTVLINE|Beyond his relationship with Lim, what sort of role will Mateo have next season?
I love that he comes from a different place, a different world and has a different point of view. He has been through very different things. He is diverse in many ways, and that is what I am excited about. The writers&#; room is just starting up, and we are going to be exploring that.

TVLINE|And he&#;ll be working at St. Bonaventure?
I think that&#;s safe to assume, yes.

TVLINE|How into the weeds are we going to get with his legal issues? Are those going to be explained away in a few sentences, or is that going to be an ongoing storyline?
Probably more the latter than the former.

TVLINE|Each season has seen Shaun embark on a new journey, so to speak — whether it was him navigating his first romantic relationship in Season 3, or taking on more responsibility as a senior resident in Season 4. What sort of journey will he take in Season 5?
We&#;re exploring different ways to take the themes [of Season 4] and take them to an even higher level, which is supervising [interns], but also his professional independence. He&#;s now reaching the end of his residency, so what does that mean? He&#;s been in a safe place up until now, to some extent. It certainly wasn&#;t safe in the beginning, but we want to mix things up a little bit and makes things less safe for him and see how he rises to that occasion, because he will no longer be a resident very shortly. And on a personal front, we wanted to take it even further, so that&#;s the engagement.

The Good Doctor season 4 finale spoilers follow

The Good Doctor has confirmed the exit of a major cast member following the season 4 finale.

Antonia Thomas bowed out of the series during Monday night's season finale (June 7) when her character Dr Claire Browne accepted a job at the Guatemalan clinic.

The British actress will not return in the confirmed fifth season, and speaking ahead of her exit, Antonia revealed that she departed the show in order to "explore different creative opportunities".

She told Deadline: "It was a really, really difficult decision, and leaving, I have to say, is a bittersweet thing for me because the last four years have been absolutely incredible.

"I feel so lucky and basically indebted to David Shore and the writers for having the experience to play Claire, who has just been a wonderful, wonderful character to explore, so layered and complicated and flawed – the kind of character that I think an actress dreams to be able to play.

"I think, ultimately, for me, it's about coming to the point where I think we've really run the gamut of different things that Claire can have gone through, and I'm now really excited to explore different creative opportunities."

On her decision to leave, she added: "For me, as an actress, having versatility and creativity has been something that's been really, really important.

"I've come from the British system where you play a role, you film it for a couple of months because seasons are only six episodes long, and then you can do something else, and I think after dedicating four years to Claire and her journey and really, really exploring the character, I am just now ready to try something new, ultimately."

Despite her departure, Antonia hasn't ruled out a return to The Good Doctor sometime in the future.

"I've had conversations with Freddie about coming back, and absolutely, yes [I'm open to returning]," she said.

"Really for me, if there was more time in the year to be able to shoot the show and to be able to go off and do some of the other things that I'm wanting to explore now, I'd do both.

"It has not been an easy decision for me to leave, so I absolutely would love to come back every now and then and say hi, bring Claire's skills from Guatemala and her stories. I'm very much looking forward to that."

The Good Doctor season 4 airs on ABC in the US. The show airs on Sky Witness and NOW in the UK.

Freddie Highmore on Getting Married, Smuggling “Cocaine” as a Child \u0026 The Good Doctor Storylines

‘The Good Doctor’ Finale: A Proposal, A Tearful Goodbye, 2 New Couples &#; 13 Saved Lives

SPOILER ALERT: The story includes details about the Season 4 finale ofThe Good Doctor. 

The conclusion of The Good Doctor’s two-part Season 4 finale marked the last episode as a series regular for star Antonia Thomaswho is leaving the ABC medical drama. In addition to bidding goodbye to her character, Dr. Claire Browne, the Guatemala-set finale featured major developments for all other San Jose St. Bonaventure doctors on the trip as well as good news for Miguel, the patient with an adorable “ugly” dog and no family who was heartbreakingly taken off the list of 12 people selected for life-saving operations after he developed a last-minute health complication.

Foreshadowing what was to come for Claire, Dr. Karla Saravia (Allegra Fulton), the head of surgery at the local hospital who had been paired with her in the OR, told her early in the episode that there are three kinds of foreign doctors who come to Guatemala, those who care too much, those who care too little and a those who learn to distance themselves to do their job. While Claire said she hoped she was in the third group, Karla told her, “You are in your own group. You care so deeply but it only gives you more strength.”

Lea was packed and headed to Hershey but the woman with a newborn baby at the hospital, whose image had triggered a new wave of grief for Lea in Part 1, asked her to help her with the baby who was having respiratory problems. Lea, with some assist from Shaun, cared for the baby girl who, after some scary moments, was OK.

Shaun made a video call to Glassman admitting that he was &#;not doing well at all.” “Lea is sad and I don’t know how to make her less sad,” Shaun said.

Glassman, who is going through major marital problems, did not offer advice. “I&#;ve always loved that you have asked me for advice and I always will but I’ve noticed the last while, you’ve needed me less and less,” Glassman said. “It got me thinking&#; you can do anything, you are good at this, better than you think.”

Most doctors faced unforeseen obstacles during their surgeries.

Shaun was in the middle of a risky operation when the power suddenly went out, and he had to rely entirely on his feel.

Marcus Andrews urgently needed titanium mini plates after he had to replace more bones than anticipated for the young boy with a facial embolism. Nurse Ana Morales suggested going to a dental surgeon catering to the rich. The dentist had the plates but jacked up the price. Andrews ended up giving the guy his wedding band as payment. He admitted to Ana that he had been flirting with her amid marital issues, and she told him that he would make his marriage work.

Claire’s patient, a mom with gallstones, turned out to have gallbladder cancer. Removing the tumor would require three times the time allotted for the surgery. She asked Dr. Audrey Lim and Dr. Andrews to step in but neither could help without endangering their own patients. Despite Claire’s lack of experience &#; she had never led such a complex surgery &#; “we should let her keep going,” Lim said, noting that the woman would die without the surgery anyway. “Claire gives her a fighting chance.”

Later, Claire’s patient started bleeding out. She ran to Shaun for a consult. There were two possible sources for the bleed, and if she guessed wrong, the woman might die. Shaun noted that one of the options was statistically more likely but Claire believed it was the other.

“Neither of us know for sure but you are good at this, better than you think,” Saun told her, channeling Glassman. She went with her gut and was right. The woman was saved.

Dr. Lim and Dr. Mateo Rendón Osma&#;s (Osvaldo Benavides) relationship deepened as they too had to overcome difficulties during their surgery. They shared things that were very personal – she revealed that she has PTSD, he told her that he had an outstanding warrant in the US stemming from an arrest for pot position during his residency that “got physical.”

As he was seeing her off on the bus to the airport, Mateo told Lim that he was considering getting a lawyer to straighten out his legal issue so he could come visit her in San Jose.

With Benavides joining the cast of The Good Doctor as a series regular next season, it is safe to assume that he would follow through on his plan.

On the same bus trip to the airport. Karla offered Claire to stay as a surgeon at the clinic. Lim told Claire he should take the job.

Claire wasn&#;t sure. &#;I cant’t speak the language, I don’t know anyone here, I just started relationship with my father. I&#;m not ready,&#; she said, to which Lim responded,  &#;All legitimate concerns but what I didn&#;t hear is one single reason you don’t want to do this. You’ve spent so many years thinking your heart was a liability, it made you care too much, it hurt too much. But maybe here caring too much is exactly what’s needed.&#;

Morgan&#;s patient, a young man with a hernia, came back after he had ignored post-op instructions to rest and instead went back to work to provide for his siblings. She fit him in but faced a complication. Alex came in and finished the surgery for her.

“You inspire me and annoy me, a small price to pay,” he told a distraught Morgan after the surgery. On the bus to the airport, she told him she wanted a friend and wished him and Heather the best. He told her that he had broken up with Heather the night before and the two admitted that they had feelings for each other.

At the airport, Claire said goodbye to her colleagues.

&#;You were far too good for us anyway,” Andrews said. “I’m proud of you Dr. Browne.”

She went to Shaun last.

“I&#;m sad that people need to move forward,” he told her. “I hope you are moving forward.”

“I think I am Shaun,” Claire replied.

Shaun noted that he had had never hugged her, and she embraced him for the first time.

After Claire left, Lea told Shaun that she was not going to Hershey and that she wanted to spend the rest of her life with him. She asked him to marry her, and he said yes. (or “Of course, I love you,” to be exact.)

Shaun then shouted, “We are getting married,” and, as he had done with every major development in his life over the past four years, he immediately added, “I have to tell Claire.”

The finale had one more heartwarming ending in store as Claire, joined by Karla, kicked off her first surgery as a doctor at the hospital. The patient was none other than Miguel, who had been last seen walking away from the clinic with his little dog in toe, likely destined to die, as Shaun waved at him. Miguel would now be saved too as his loyal dog sat patiently outside, waiting for his human.

The Ending Of The Good Doctor Season 4 Explained

At the end of the two-part finale, "Vamos," set in Guatemala, Dr. Claire Brown (Antonia Thomas) departed San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital in order to stay in Guatemala and work as a surgeon. The show is bidding farewell to Thomas as well, who's leaving to work on other projects. In an interview with TV Line, executive producer David Shore said he didn't want Thomas to go: "I went into this season hoping she would change her mind. [Laughs] That didn't happen, which wasn't overly surprising. She's been very appreciative, and I know she had a great time on the show." 

Claire had long been a fan favorite for her compassion and insight compared to the other characters. Nevertheless, she often grappled with her past, including an abusive mother, as well as the overwhelming struggle to save lives. 

These emotional conflicts led Claire to doubt at first whether she was ready to work abroad, but Dr. Lim convinces her that Guatemala is where her kindness and open heart are truly needed. Shore said in the same TV Line interview that he wanted Claire to be happy in her new job: "I wanted her to be running towards something, not away from something. We wanted to find a place for her to go that felt like a great fit for her." And in her last scene, Claire does seem happy working, finally at peace after so much hardship and loss.
