A Little Art, A Little Science

Royal Pains A Little Art A Little Science Episode Guide

Despite the continuing tension between the Lawson brothers and the General's moratorium on Hank having any contact with his family, Evan asks Hank to help Paige's mother Ellen with her depressive disorder. Hank not only agrees but also returns to Brooklyn Heights Mercy Hospital, where he used to work in the ER, to consult with an old colleague and friend, Dr. Abby Burton. When General Collins finds out that everyone has gone behind his back to arrange for his wife to get shock therapy, he's outraged. But can he see past his stubbornness to support his wife and allow her the hope she desperately needs to go on? And will this finally be the thing to bring Evan back into the HankMed - and the Lawson family - fold?

Jill has finally found a great candidate to take over her post at Hamptons Heritage. Soon she'll be free to go back to Uruguay. But does she still want to?

Divya has been running herself ragged trying to keep up her ruse of working two jobs. But when she must shuttle back and forth between her duties for HankMed with a demanding celebrity patient who's in the hospital for a minor procedure and an extra shift at the hospital at the same time, even the hyper-efficient Divya realizes she may have pushed herself too far. While she doesn't exactly blow her cover, she does make a mistake - one that could be fatal for Eric Kassabian, the big time art collector who bought Paige's drawing, and ruin HankMed's reputation 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!
