If one is to assume that Jared wasn’t manipulating facts, it was hard for Shaun to digest the fact that, Dr. Glassman, a world-class neurosurgeon, could make such a novice mistake. This, paired with an ominous music in the background with Shaun in focus, led fans to believe that Dr. Glassman could be losing his mind. But, why? It is because his brain cancer has returned. Was his cancer never treatable in the first place? Did Shaun misdiagnose Dr. Glassman’s cancer?
Well, there is no straight answer to this until the upcoming episode airs. However, this rookie mistake by the doctor could also be attributed to things that have been happening in Glassman’s life. While cancer sure could be the reason, Shaun’s mentor hasn’t been living the best of his life lately. He has dealt with several tragedies which might be the reason he is losing focus.
