A Guesthouse Divided

Royal Pains A Guesthouse Divided Episode Guide

When the Lawson brothers go head-to-head for a lucrative gig to provide in-house medical services at a high-end spa, Divya hatches a scheme to help them both-fail, that is-so that they finally come to their senses and realize they need each other. Paige, who has returned from England early, is all too happy to support Divya's plan. Ever since she got back, Evan has been too wrapped up in building his new enterprise to ask Paige how her work is going (or not, as the case actually is). The boys are even competing with their goodbye presents to for Jill, who has been offered a better job than the one in Uruguay. For this new position, she'll be developing outreach programs, first in Botswana, then possibly South America. Even though leaving has long been her plan, she's finding that saying goodbye isn't any easier. Instead of letting Hank drive her to the airport, she takes off before he arrives to pick her up. But she gives Jake, her local delivery guy, a letter to give to Hank after she's gone.

While Keller is being tested by Hank to diagnose his nausea, cramping, and abdominal distress, he offers to invest in Hank's new solo concierge practice. Hank is too worried about Keller's increasingly serious symptoms, as well as similar symptoms coincidentally being displayed by Jake, to consider the idea. But with Jill gone, Hank realizes he's going to have to do things differently if he wants to stay in business and succeed now that he has competition-from his own brother-who is only getting stronger, savvier and more determined by the day.

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!
