nobodys perfect

While Hank thinks that he has gone all the way to New York to help save Boris, it turns out Hank may need a little saving himself. Boris reveals that the Gardners are pressuring the state licensing board to revoke Hank's credentials. Hank wants to handle the matter on his own but Boris isn't about to butt out of Hank's business, just like Hank hasn't let the issue of Boris's mysterious illness go. Boris puts his cadre of lawyers on the case despite Hank's wishes because he has a vested interest in Hank keeping his medical license. Boris wants Hank to help him with his potentially terminal genetic disease that killed his father and his grandfather. Hank agrees as long as there are no more secrets between them. Unfortunately for Hank, Boris isn't exactly a tell-all kind of guy. 

Meanwhile, HankMed has a new client that is so famous (or more likely, infamous) that Evan and Divya won't find out who he or she is until the massive yacht they're on reaches the even bigger boat where their mystery client is located. Divya is highly suspicious of the situation. But the sheer number of zeros on the retainer check they were paid in advance has made Evan determined to see this through. But when they learn that their new client is a notorious Wall Street swindler who bilked billions from innocent investors and is hiding from the authorities in the safety of international waters, Evan has second thoughts. Too bad they can't turn the boat around, because the captain of the sailboat literally just had the wind knocked out of him by a falling sail and is in need of emergency medical attention. Now what?

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!
