Rash Talk

Royal Pains Rash Talk Episode Guide

Hamptons locals Kate and Stella have pooled all their savings into an adorable eco-friendly home-care product shop, which they've fixed up themselves. Jill brings Divya into the shop to treat Kate for a drill bit that impaled her foot from a DIY-project-gone-wrong. But what catches Divya's attention is Stella's strange, persistent cough, which may be the result of toxic products. Soon Stella experiences an unbearable burning rash, dry mouth, a swollen tongue and photosensitivity. Hank quickly realizes that this is much worse than an allergic reaction and tries to find the cause of Stella's symptoms.

After opening a letter from the Department of Justice four months after being sent, Hank and Evan debate whether to go down to Florida for Eddie's parole hearing that's now just a few days away. Hank thinks that if Eddie wanted them there, he would've asked them, but Evan believes Eddie needs them and is simply too proud to say so. Will they get past their stalemate in time to help their father?

Meanwhile, everyone has figured out that Jill and Hank are romantically involved again despite efforts to conceal their affair from their friends. And Divya's attempt to move out of the Shadow Pond guesthouse falls flat when her application is denied due to her lack of credit - but at least Hank and Evan don't have to suffer from her spicy Indian cooking anymore!

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!
