Pit Stop

A new reality show called "Share House: The Hamptons," featuring fame-hungry twentysomethings cavorting drunkenly, is filming next door to Jill. There goes the neighborhood - and Jill's hopes of getting any sleep at night. 

While coming to her aid, Hank witnesses an accident at the share house, and makes a dramatic aquatic rescue of one of the cast members. Soon he and Divya are paying another call to the house, where resident Craig is showing some strange symptoms. An embarrassing admission from Craig points the HankMed team in the right direction, but will they be able to get to the bottom of Craig's medical mystery in time to save him - and his housemates?

Meanwhile, all the television cameras are inspiring Evan with an idea: a Hank-centric reality show. Unfortunately for Evan, Hank doesn't have much - or, more accurately, any - interest in becoming a TV star. He's much too busy trying to heal his patients, including Marisa Casseras, whose reasons for keeping her pregnancy a secret from Boris are becoming increasingly clear to Hank. And Emily's return to the Hamptons also means that Hank has some thinking to do about the future of his relationship - and his company.

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!
