Royal Pains My Back To The Future Episode Guide

With Hank suffering from severe back pain, Evan hires Van Dyke as their "back-up doc" to help manage HankMed's busy workload. At first, Evan bristles at the formal way Van Dyke does things, e.g. wearing his white doctor coat and introducing himself as Dr. Van Dyke instead of Paul. But when Van Dyke starts racking up the client retainers for HankMed, Evan gets stars in his eyes. Could this be his HankMed expansion dream come true?

Now that Divya is no longer moonlighting at the hospital, she decides to sell a rare set of her family's vintage china to raise the money she needs to pay off her debt to Raj's parents. But before she delivers the china to the appraiser, Divya catches someone stealing it from her car. Divya and Jill take off after the thief, but he crashes the Jeep he's driving (also stolen) during his getaway, severely injuring himself and destroying financial freedom in the process. Always the professional, she winds up saving the crook but unfortunately, the china is D.O.A.

Bad back and all, Hank is by Jack's side to hear about his treatment options for his lupus as outlined by the nephrologist, Dr. Nine Greene, and help Jack decide how to proceed. Rather than taking the time to understand the various courses of treatment, including a risky clinical trial, Jack flips a coin. He figures a risk is a risk... or is it?

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!
