Mulligan

After his heart attack, Eddie R. Lawson is rushed to Hamptons Heritage, where Hank and the hospital staff manage to stabilize him. Following his near-death experience, Eddie swears that he's a changed man, and vows to tell his sons the truth about what he's been up to. While Hank insists that his father first focus on getting better, that's not good enough for Evan, who decides to get to the bottom of things by paying a visit to Eddie's lawyer. 

With Eddie recuperating in the hospital and Evan occupied elsewhere, it's back to business for the HankMed team, who are signed up to provide medical support at a local charity golf tournament. While Hank and Divya tend to the injured, Divya does her best to put her personal life back in order. Still grappling with her feelings after her kiss with Adam, she ignores his texts and calls, and makes plans to visit her fiancé Raj in London. But when Adam shows up at the golf course to talk to her, Divya has no choice but to face him - and her feelings. 

As it turns out, the tournament is also bringing out a new side of Jill - the fiercely competitive side. Jill, who's matched up with could-have-been-a-contender Jack O'Malley, a journeyman player who botched his big chance at the Open, is determined to bring home the trophy. Hank can't help but notice the undeniable attraction between Jill and Jack, but it's another observation that has him more concerned: the painful, debilitating condition affecting Jack's hands. And just when it seems Hank has Jack's condition under control, Jill begins to show some very troubling symptoms of her own. 

Will Divya finally manage to sort out her romantic life? Will the Lawson brothers manage to forgive their father? And will Hank be able to help Jack and Jill? Here's hoping. Because in life, unlike in golf, there are no mulligans.

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!
