As Paige helps HankMed patient Ray Mazzarino prepare to open his new restaurant, Evan and Jeremiah worry that they’ll never find a space to start HankMed’s medical lab.  Meanwhile, Hank feels that Emma needs to think more seriously about her future. And Divya has a scheduling issue with her nanny.  

Hank also treats Franklin, the larger-than-life head chef at Olio’s.  Franklin’s under a lot of pressure with Olio’s opening night approaching fast, and when he has a freak accident in the kitchen, Ray’s livid and thinks Franklin might be hitting the booze again.  But after dining at Olio’s during their opening night, Hank realizes there might be a medical explanation for Franklin’s intoxication.    

Divya also treats Dave Reed, a NASCAR race crew pit chief who’s anxiously coaching his daughter Ashley in her qualifying races.  Ashley’s on the cusp of racing in the big leagues, and is worried the stress of qualifying is harming her father.  But Divya discovers that Dave’s symptoms might be self-inflicted. 

Meanwhile, Evan and Jeremiah despair after scouring Long Island for a place to open the new HankLab.  With no space meeting their requirements, they fear the worst for HankMed, until Ray suggests an unlikely location.  But there might be an issue with the neighbors next door. 

And when Ray suggests a business proposal to Evan over the new lab space, Evan fears he’s getting in deeper than he should with the purported mobster…

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!
