Bottoms Up

Royal Pains Bottoms Up Episode Guide

Jack "fires" Hank because his insurance won't cover two GP's, but Hank's concerned that if he doesn't stay close to Jack's case, Jack will blow off his treatment. Which is exactly what Jack does by taking off on a fishing trip with Jill instead of getting a much-needed procedure so he can start dialysis. When Hank finds out how quickly Jack's lupus is progressing, his concern turns to worry. Hank may no longer be Jack's doctor but he's still his friend and he's going to do everything he can to make sure Jack's denial isn't his downfall.

A summer festival outdoor production of Midsummer Night's Dream is causing quite a stir for the whole gang. Hank is called in when minor medical mishaps start plaguing the cast the day before opening night. While there, Hank notices that the bombastic, hard-drinking star of the show has shortness of breath and begins testing him to rule out any heart disease. Evan, who has always dreamed of being on stage, only has one line in the play but his big break may be closer than he realizes.

Paige has been dutifully painting scenery in the hopes of impressing the director. When the director offers Paige a two-month job as a scenic artist in England, Evan is torn, knowing that she would stay if he asked but also that she really wants the gig. And Divya's hopes of enjoying some high culture are dashed when she finds out Raj is attending the play as well... with a gorgeous date. Divya quickly enlists Van Dyke to accompany her to even the score. But when Raj admits that he is in love for the first time, and he has Divya letting him out their obligation to thank for it, Divya realizes that he has moved on and she's the one who's stuck.

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!
