This One's For Jack

Royal Pains This One's For Jack Episode Guide

Hank is clearly having a hard time facing Jack's death and has shut down his emotions-kind of like when Hank and Evan's mom died, Evan points out. Unfortunately, Jill can't really be a comfort to Hank because she's feeling guilty about her part in Jack's death when she unknowingly enabled him to delay his treatment. And since Jack stipulated in his will that he didn't want a funeral, there doesn't seem to be a forum for them to say their goodbyes and maybe even let themselves off the hook. Or is there?

Claudette, Boris's cousin, is a woman on a mission-luckily one that doesn't involve slowly poisoning Boris. She's got a tech medical device company that she'd like Boris to invest in to keep the business in the family. Boris calls in Hank and Evan to sit in on her pitch. Hank is cautiously interested but would like to see more data and not to mention, an FDA approval. Meanwhile Evan sees a way to take HankMed's services to the next level.

Sniffing out Evan as an ally, Claudette convinces him to use one of her products on a HankMed patient. But when Hank finds out that Evan risked not only HankMed's reputation but also Hank's medical license, the question of who's really running HankMed rears its head. Since Evan bought Divya's shares to give her enough money to pay off her debt to Raj's parents, Evan feels that he's in charge. But Hank's the one with the "M.D." after his name and his career on the line. Suddenly the Lawson brothers are in a nasty deadlock, which could mean the end of HankMed-and maybe even their personal relationship.

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!
