The Lawson brothers have found themselves with an unexpected houseguest: their estranged father, Eddie R. Lawson. But just because dear old dad has come bearing a restitution check doesn't mean Hank is ready to welcome him with open arms. (In fact, a closed fist is more like it.)


While Evan tries to bring his brother around, Hank focuses on a new patient: Blake Newberg, beloved stepdaughter of HankMed client Ms. "Newparts" Newberg. The pressure to keep up with her young, yoga-teaching boyfriend seems to be taking a toll on Blake's health, and Hank is worried her heart may not be able to handle the stress. 

And as it turns out, Blake's affairs of the heart aren’t the only ones causing problems. Jill is having a yard sale to rid herself once and for all of her ex's old junk, and Divya is starting to worry about her compatibility with Raj. Even Hank's newest patients, the Tanners, a couple with mysterious rashes, are coping with romantic strife.

As usual, it's up to Hank to help his patients with their medical problems, and their personal ones. But with Eddie sticking around and things more complicated with Jill than ever, the question is: who's helping Hank with his?

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!
