When Boris sends a jet to whisk Hank away to his "winter residence," Hank is expecting a quick trip to Manhattan. Instead, he and Evan find themselves landing on a very different island: Cuba. A local geneticist named Dr. Casseras has diagnosed Boris, and, eager to participate in her new clinical trial, he has brought Hank to Cuba to evaluate and prepare him for the treatment. Hank urges his patient to exercise caution, but Boris and the beautiful Dr. Casseras - whose relationship, it appears, may be more than just professional - have other ideas. 

With Hank occupied, Evan is forced to make his own fun; luckily, it's a field he happens to be an expert in. He soon finds a scuba partner in a comely Canadian named Mindy, who is in Cuba vacationing with some friends. The two hit it off, but when Mindy's friend has a medical crisis, it's Hank whom she turns to for help. 

Back at home, Divya is left to deal with Hank's temporary replacement, an ambitious and abrasive young doctor named Emily Peck. The two women clash over treatment styles, patient care, and... just about everything else. But with the Lawson brothers experiencing an unforeseen delay in their return to the Hamptons, Divya might not be rid of Dr. Peck quite as soon as she'd hoped.

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!
