Summer is kicking off in the Hamptons with a lavish Puja ceremony to celebrate the naming of Divya’s new baby.  After a long winter on bed-rest, Divya is settling into the joys of motherhood with her daughter, Sashi.  Having lived together over the winter, Divya and Jeremiah are closer friends than ever.  But when this exclusive summer bash begins, there’s one person missing – especially for Evan – and that’s Hank.  But Hank helicopters in, just in time for the festivities.

Hank hasn’t been back to the Hamptons since Valentine’s Day, when he rushed home from his travels with Boris, after hearing Divya had gone into labor.  He wouldn’t have missed the birth of his best friend’s daughter for anything.  But once he got home, he faced a difficult decision between his friendship with Divya and his commitment to Boris. 

In a series of flashbacks to the winter, we see Evan concoct a plan to make Hank stay in the Hamptons.  He and Paige (stronger than ever after a winter of couples therapy) introduce him to Lance McGuire, a talented local musician.  Lance believes he’s inherited his father’s deadly disease, and lets it dictate his life.  Hank starts getting very invested in this new patient. 

Back in the present Boris has an important and secretive mission underway and can’t stay at Shadow Pond for long.  He expects Hank to leave with him on a moment’s notice. But just as Hank is forced to choose between Boris and The Hamptons, a mysterious young woman appears and promises to change his life forever.

About Royal Pains

USA Network is proud to announce the return of the Hamptons' best doctor-on-demand, Hank Lawson (Mark Feuerstein), in Royal Pains.

Once a rising star in the New York City medical community, Hank found himself out of work, dumped by his fiancée and out of options after a dustup with some hospital honchos. Fed up with Hank's personal pity-party, his younger brother, Evan (Paulo Costanzo), convinced Hank to join him on a last-minute trip to the Hamptons for Memorial Day weekend. When the brothers crashed a party at the home of a Hamptons billionaire and a guest fell critically ill, Hank saved the day. His dramatic medical rescue drew attention from the crowd, and soon Hank's phone started ringing off the hook with patients wanting Hank to make house calls.

By the end of the weekend, HankMed was born. With Evan as the company's CFO and the whip-smart, ambitious Divya (Reshma Shetty) as Hank's physician's assistant, Hank became the Hamptons' new in-demand Doctor-for-Hire. News travels fast on the East End, especially when it's about a talented young doctor with MacGyver-like skills who makes house calls. But the rich and powerful aren't the only ones seeking out HankMed's services; there are plenty of less well-off locals who need his help, too, and he's more than happy to lend a hand.

But after a few idyllic summers in the Hamptons, there are big changes in store for HankMed this season. Hank returns from his travels abroad with Boris (Campbell Scott), but realizes coming home isn’t always as easy as it seems. Evan and Paige (Brooke D’Orsay) grow stronger in their marriage thanks to the help of an unconventional therapist. Divya must find a way to balance the challenges of being a single-mom with her job at HankMed. HankMed’s newest doctor, Jeremiah Sacani (Ben Shenkman) realizes that having Divya and her baby stay with him isn’t going to be as easy as he thought. And when a mysterious young woman shows up at the guesthouse at the beginning of summer, she changes Hank and Evan’s lives forever. So as another summer heats up in the Hamptons, this season promises to be anything but a walk on the beach!
