‘The Good Doctor’: Will Park and Morgan’s Relationship End in Heartbreak?
The Good Doctor’s Park and Morgan finally decided to be together. However, the process has been bumpy. Do Park and Morgan really have a chance at a lasting relationship? Will their relationship end in heartbreak? Here’s Showbiz Cheat Sheet’s take on the TV couple.
Park and Morgan on ‘The Good Doctor’
Park (Will Yun Lee) and Morgan’s (Fiona Gubelmann) interactions started as harmless teasing. However, things became romantic after Park moved in with Morgan. He was going through a divorce and needed a place to stay, so Morgan offered to let him live with her.
The duo seemed to have feelings for each other before they started living together, but those feelings intensified after they became housemates. At first, Morgan didn’t react well after Park admitted he had feelings for her. She asked him to move out, and he did. However, Morgan realized she also had romantic feelings, so they began seeing each other.
Morgan pulls away
Morgan likes Park but she pulled away from him when things started getting serious. As soon as Park suggested leaving an extra phone charger at her house, she began to pull back. Morgan didn’t want Park to get attached to her, so she told him he needs to see other people. She was concerned that if he only dates her, he will get attached and things would begin moving too quickly.
Old wounds might be holding Morgan back
Commitment scares Morgan, and this caused her to distance herself from Park. Part of the reason Morgan is afraid of getting close is likely because of her relationship with her mother, Caroline Reznick. Morgan’s mother is very critical of her, so this probably affects how she navigates personal relationships.
During The Good Doctor Season 3 Episode 13, we see the complicated relationship between Morgan and her mother. Caroline, a famous artist, is hard to please and never fully accepts Morgan’s choice to become a doctor. Her mother’s constant criticism has caused her to become “guarded,” according to Gubelmann in her interview with TV Line. Morgan is afraid to let people see her vulnerable side. She’s afraid that if she is vulnerable, she will be hurt.
Do Park and Morgan really have a shot at love?
Our guess is that Morgan is going to let issues from her past affect her relationship with Park. We would be surprised if their relationship lasts until the end of season five. We can see Morgan possibly breaking up with Park at some point in the season because of her fear of getting too close. We’re rooting for them and hope this doesn’t happen, but when it comes to Morgan and Park, things can be unpredictable.
Hopefully, Morgan will seek help for her attachment issues. Perhaps if she speaks to a therapist and learns how to resolve things with her mother, she will be able to get close to romantic partners. Will Morgan and Park last? They might have a shot, but we don’t think it’s going to be a long-term thing. Then again, who knows? They might surprise us.
