Shaun's fondness for his deceased brother is a topic The Good Doctor revisits over and over. Take "Friends and Family," which saw the ambitious doctor get in a fight with his father over the circumstances of Steve's tragic death. 

What happened to Shaun's brother, The Good Doctor' s sorely-missed character?

So, what happened to Shaun's brother in The Good Doctor

As the first few episodes of Season 1 reveal, Shaun and Steve grew even closer during their ceaseless battle with their abusive parents.
