There Will Be Food

there will be food

Tucker, Hank’s wealthy teenage hemophiliac client, and his girlfriend Libby invite Hank and Divya to a retirement party on a massive East Hampton estate. Naturally, Evan tags along for the free drinks. Despite their low expectations for fun, the party turns out to be anything but a snoozefest. 

For starters, the soiree is being thrown in honor of a gorgeous ballerina with the San Francisco Ballet Company, Tess Premoli, who is retiring at the ripe old age of twenty-seven. Evan is immediately smitten and begins pursuit. Surprisingly, Tess is actually charmed by Evan and agrees to sneak out her own party to grab some “real” food with him. Everything’s going great until she suddenly passes out in his lap after eating a hot dog. Times like this it’s really helpful to have a brother who happens to be a doctor-on-demand.

Hank is pleasantly surprised to see Jill Flint at Tess’s party. Unfortunately, Jill is in a foul mood after an upsetting conversation with one of the party guests and too many glasses of wine. The next day, Hank learns the reason she drank herself into oblivion: her biggest investor pulled out of funding the free clinic she has always dreamed of opening. But when Hank asks Jill for some information on an uninsured patient whom he wants to help, he is shocked when Jill refuses to violate hospital policy. Weren’t they on the same page about bending the rules and working outside of the system? 

About Royal Pains

USA Network is proud to announce the return of the Hamptons' newest 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 becomes 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 even with a few Hamptons summers already under their belts, things aren't going to be so easy for the HankMed team this time around. Hank is recovering from a life threatening injury, and might not be out of the woods just yet. Evan and Paige (Brooke D'Orsay) are newly married, but discovering that their honeymoon phase may already be over. Divya finds that choices she made over the winter will change her life forever. And HankMed's newest doctor, Jeremiah Sacani (Ben Shenkman) returns to find that his unrequited feelings for Divya are even stronger than before. All of these changes threaten the very existence of HankMed. And the mysterious circumstances surrounding Boris' death still hang in the air. So as summer heats up in the Hamptons, this season promises to be anything but a walk on the beach!
