Comfort's Overrated

It seems the Hamptons don't agree with Queens transplant Jim 'Mac' MacIntyre. Though locals - including Jill and Hank - are lining up for the chef's addictive lobster mac 'n' cheese, Mac's been having some bad luck since he and his orange food truck arrived in town: first he and his truck get sideswiped in a hit and run, and now he and his new wife are having marital issues. Hank and Divya soon find themselves landing square in the middle of those issues when Mac's wife Donna calls them in to treat her injured ankle. While tending to Donna, Hank and Divya can't help but notice Mac's increasingly odd behavior, and begin to worry that there's something dangerous going on with this troubled couple. 

And as it turns out, Donna and Mac aren't the only Hamptons residents facing both medical and relationship problems. Hank's newest clients, young heiress Paige and her much-older boyfriend Graham, are also in need of help from the HankMed team. As Hank attempts to treat Graham's mysterious vision problems, Evan gets drafted by Paige - who doesn't want her parents to know the truth about Graham's age - to act as her stand-in boyfriend. 

While Evan undergoes his "faux beau" makeover and struggles with his growing feelings for Paige, Hank and Divya struggle to solve the mysteries behind their patients' bizarre symptoms. Meanwhile Divya's reemerging doubts about her future with Raj, Hank's burgeoning relationship with Emily Peck, and a surprising business proposition from Jill could mean some new complications - and uncomfortable moments - for the HankMed team. But as Hank's patient Graham would say, comfort's overrated.

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!
