The Good Doctor Season 6 Episode 6 takes place during a heatwave.

Shaun is well prepared for the heat, with a neck fan, cooling vest, and hydration pack. When he notices Lim sweating, he tells Powell that if Lim had the surgery, she would regulate her temperature better. When Powell admits she advised Lim against it, Shaun decides he can't stand Powell.

Powell and Shaun have to work together to help a patient who comes in with dehydration after a bike ride but turns out to have a rare heart condition. They continually argue in front of the patient, mostly because Shaun has no interest in any of Powell's ideas. Shaun eventually has had enough of Powell contradicting him (according to his POV) and kicks her off the case.

Powell uses her free time to get Lim to play basketball with a bunch of other wheelchair users. The patient wants Powell on the team because if Shaun has to make difficult decisions, he wants someone there to challenge his thinking. Glassman advises Shaun to look for common ground with Powell.

Meanwhile, the heat overloads the hospital servers, threatening to knock out the backup generators and leave the hospital without power.

Morgan, and Asher work on a geriatic ward full of patients who have dementia. They go looking for a patient who goes missing. Meanwhile, a 90-year-old woman with advanced cancer wants surgery to remove her tumor despite Park's insistence that it's a bad idea.

The Good Doctor Season 6 Episode 6 Quotes

Park: Your heart's beating too fast and you're in v-fib.
Edna: My heart's been keeping me going for 90 years, so don't be too hard on it.

Shaun: Spinal cord injuries interfere with autonomous temperature regulation. If Dr. Lim had had that surgery I proposed, she would be better able to regulate her temperature.
Powell: It's too early for her to make that decision.
Shaun: No. The longer she waits, the greater the risk of irreversible adema.
Powell: Many factors to consider. That's why I advised her not to have the surgery.
Shaun: Excuse me? You are a first year resident. I have much more surgical experience than you.
Powell: And I have more physical disability experience than you.
