crazy love

Jill is thrilled when her best friend Katie shows up at Shadow Pond unexpectedly. However, the reason for her visit is business not pleasure. Boris, whom Katie met through Jill at his Memorial Day Weekend party, has agreed to fund Katie's medical research. That night, Boris calls Hank into the house to attend to an incident. Hank is shocked to discover that Katie has a shark bite. Boris claims it happened when Katie was swimming in the ocean but Hank's not buying it. Despite Hank's agreement to respect Boris's privacy, Hank begins poking around looking for the truth. Evan fesses up that he knows that Boris is keeping a shark in his house. But that doesn't answer the question why Katie was in that shark tank, or does it? 

Instead of celebrating Boris's birthday with a big party, he asks Hank to give him his annual physical. Unsurprisingly, Boris seems like he's in excellent shape. As a standard part of the exam, Hank takes Boris's blood and sends it to Hamptons Heritage Hospital for testing. After a strange conversation with Boris about Hank's initial seemingly benign findings, Hank requests a full analysis on the bloodwork. Before Hank can confirm his hunch, the bloodwork disappears from the hospital and Boris has taken off without a word or a way to reach him. Hank is now convinced that Boris is sick and that it's somehow all tied to the research that Katie is doing, and the shark in the basement. 

Meanwhile, Divya's fiancé Raj has arrived on the East End for a visit. But a medical case she's attending to for a crazy couple isn't helping her sort out her feelings about her pending nuptials.

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!
