With Dmitry staying at Shadow Pond prior to the summit, it's up to Hank to make sure the stubborn Russian is properly caring for his diabetes and taking his insulin. Even with translator Christina aiding Hank as he tries to reason with Dmitry, Dmitry continues to resist. Boris charges Hank with figuring out a way to keep Dmitry healthy both for the short and long term without becoming Dmitry's round-the-clock nursemaid for the rest of his life. Caring for an ill veterinarian friend of Divya's gives Hank an unorthodox idea that just may be crazy enough to work and earn Boris's reward of a night out with Christina in exchange.

Van Dyke puts his standing with HankMed in jeopardy when he shows up at work not just hung-over but still drunk. With Hank tied up with his shadowy Shadow Pond business and the unwell, overworked vet, it's up to Evan and Paige to "handle" this tricky personnel issue. But Van Dyke isn't talking about what prompted his bad behavior... so Evan has no choice but to fire him. After sleeping on his decision, Evan remembers how hard it was to staff up HankMed and that perhaps firing Van Dyke might've been a little rash. He decides to do a little detective work and retrace Van Dyke's steps the night before to see if he can figure out the reason behind VD's uncharacteristic bender.

A special charity raffle at the Hamptons Speed Rally has made visions of a free Ferrari dance in Evan's head. None of his colleagues buy the argument that HankMed needs a Ferrari as a company car, but Evan manages to get them to pony up a portion of the ticket price anyway. He loses the raffle, but he still winds up with a Ferrari from a very surprising source.

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!
