vino veritas

Hank is summoned to a local winery by client Tucker Bryant, who has some concerns about his childhood friend, Oliver Ambrose. Oliver has been showing some odd symptoms and Tucker, all too familiar with the signs of substance abuse, is worried that his friend may be heading down that path. Hank isn't so sure that's the problem, but he does suspect that something - other than just being a teenager - is causing Oliver's fatigue and erratic behavior. 

At the launch party celebrating the Ambrose family's new biodynamic wines, Hank tends to Tucker and Oliver while Evan - who, thanks to a little misunderstanding, has some concerns about Divya's physical condition - sticks close to Divya. After discovering what might be the closest thing Evan has to a superpower, winemaker Kim enlists Evan's help in tasting her product. But while observing Kim, Divya begins to fear that the headaches Kim has been attributing to stress could in fact be symptoms of something far more serious. 

When a crisis occurs while Divya, Evan and Jill are at the hospital with Kim, Hank finds himself forced to think on his feet and accept help from a most unlikely source - his father, Eddie. But will the estranged duo be able to set aside their differences long enough to come to the aid of Hank's ailing patients?

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!
