After careful thought, Hank tells Boris he accepts his strict, non-negotiable rules in order to be made privy to Boris's mysterious venture. Now Hank's got a pager-the short leash that Boris has placed him on-and the instructions to show up at Shadow Pond as soon as it beeps. Of course it goes off during the middle of a hard-won date with Harper Cummings, the attractive and resourceful doctor with whom the matchmaker, Veronica, set him up on an ambush blind date, instantly reminding Harper of her own non-negotiable rule: to never date doctors.

Paige helps Evan get a meeting back on the schedule to discuss a retainer at the Blackstone Club. Unfortunately, the meeting with the club director goes terribly, so Evan calls in Hank to seal the deal. The only problem is that the club director's daughter, who now runs the place since her father passed away a couple of weeks ago, mistakes Evan for Hank only moments after meeting Hank and then promptly trips and crashes into the glass coffee table in her office. Hank suspects the car accident she was in when she heard the news that her father was dying might have something to do with her strange behavior.

Since Devesh's stubbornness towards his wife or his daughter hasn't thawed one iota, Rubina decides to go to London for a little while. When Divya goes to apologize to Devesh after exploding at him during her first visit to make sure he was taking his medications as her mother instructed, she finds him face down in the pool. Luckily she is able to restart his breathing but after being treated at the hospital, he's still in a coma. Could Divya's harsh words have been the cause of her father's accident?

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!
