Off-Season Greetings (Part One)

With one week to go until Evan and Paige's big day, the Hamptons are a winter wonderland (albeit a snowless one) and wedding preparations are in full swing. But before they can say their vows, the lovebirds have to celebrate something else: their last officially single days.

Best man Hank has a tame night in NYC planned for the groom's bachelor party, while DIvya and the bride are set to meet Paige's friends in Aspen for Paige's bachelorette party. But bad weather and the interference of Hank's former nemesis Ken "Killer" Keller mean that both the ladies and the gentlemen are in for a change of plans, and, surprisingly, both parties soon find themselves unknowingly headed to the same place: Las Vegas.

In Sin City, the boys hit the tables while Paige plays cupid and reconnects still-crazy-for-each-other Divya and Rafa, who take their relationship to a new level with an impulsive visit to the wedding chapel. Not long after the groups reunite, it's time to head back to the Hamptons (and reality), where Hank attends to his cousin Owen and Ken's girlfriend Barbie when they each undergo frightening medical crises. And unfortunately, they aren't the only ones with troubling symptoms: months after the explosion at Shadow Pond that appears to have killed Boris, Hank is still not fully recovered, and his condition is worsening.

Meanwhile, the upcoming nuptials and the arrival of both Owen and Hank's former flame Winnie bring back memories of less happy times, before the Hamptons healed the Lawson brothers and their fractured relationship. As Evan broods over a wrong he may have done Owen years before and Hank assesses his romantic failures, storm clouds move in. With the blizzard closing roads and preventing guests and vendors from making it to the Hamptons, the white wedding of Paige and Evan's dreams is in danger of becoming a snow-covered nightmare.

About Royal Pains

USA Network is proud to announce the return of the Hamptons' newest 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 becomes 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 even with a few Hamptons summers already under their belts, things aren't going to be so easy for the HankMed team this time around. Hank is recovering from a life threatening injury, and might not be out of the woods just yet. Evan and Paige (Brooke D'Orsay) are newly married, but discovering that their honeymoon phase may already be over. Divya finds that choices she made over the winter will change her life forever. And HankMed's newest doctor, Jeremiah Sacani (Ben Shenkman) returns to find that his unrequited feelings for Divya are even stronger than before. All of these changes threaten the very existence of HankMed. And the mysterious circumstances surrounding Boris' death still hang in the air. So as summer heats up in the Hamptons, this season promises to be anything but a walk on the beach!
