While attempting to get back into his summer routine, Hank realizes he's not bouncing back as quickly as he'd like. Evan has been given free reign over Shadow Pond by Dmitry, but he finds little time to enjoy it as he fights the cease-and-desist order imposed by Blythe Ballard. Divya is still reeling from her life-changing news, and a doctor's visit confirms that she is indeed pregnant. The gravity of the situation overwhelms her, and she snaps at Paige, her sole confidant in the matter.

Finally cleared to drive, Hank witnesses a car accident his first time back out on the road. He finds the driver, 16 year-old Molly Barrett, with barely a scratch. But Molly's father, Police Officer Don Barrett, is none too pleased with his daughter's reckless behavior. Hank soon finds out that Molly might not be the most trustworthy of teenagers, but her antics are not Don's biggest problem at the moment.

Upon returning to the newly re-opened Hamptons Heritage ER, Hank meets Shelby Shackleford, a patient that Divya previously treated. Shelby works for Symphony Health, the company that bought the hospital. She has some very big ideas for HankMed, but the Lawsons aren't quite convinced of her plans.

In an attempt to win over the neighbors, HankMed throws an open house, even going as far as inviting Blythe Ballard. Everything is going great until an ailing patient crashes the party. And later on, Evan and Hank, investigating strange noises at Shadow Pond in the middle of the night, make a startling discovery that only deepens Hank's suspicions of Dmitry...

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!
