the doctor’s character arcs per season.
#so this is pretty much the moments after the Oncoming Storm has passed #and he’s just left completely numb and broken #and drowning in his own guilt and self-hatred #because he feels like it’s all his fault #he should have prevented it #he should have KNOWN
“A doctor, like anyone else who has to deal with human beings, each of them unique, cannot be a scientist; he is either, like the surgeon, a craftsman, or, like the physician and the psychologist, an artist. This means that in order to be a good doctor a man must also have a good character, that is to say, whatever weaknesses and foibles he may have, he must love his fellow human beings in the concrete and desire their good before his own.” - W. H. Auden
