The Hankover

hankover

The sun rises over a beautiful beach; it's another gorgeous day in the Hamptons. Except this morning, something's a little different....

 Back up 24 hours. Divya and Jill, dressed up in their ladies-who-lunch finest, are heading to Manhattan for a bridal tea in Divya's honor. Afterwards, they decide to make the most of their time in the city and, with help from their well-informed cab driver, hit the town. But after a surprise call from her sister Saya, Divya learns the shocking truth about Saya's arranged marriage, and once again begins to question her own. 

Meanwhile, back in the Hamptons, Evan has his own doubts about Divya's impending nuptials. He decides to find out more about Raj, who happens to be in town, by throwing him a bachelor party at Shadow Pond. The party quickly goes from a quiet evening with the guys to a full-fledged night of debauchery. When two of his patients - Michelle, whose dislocated shoulder Hank reset that morning, and Doug Keller, Hank's grade school nemesis, who has been suffering from chronic sinus pain - turn up at the party, Hank isn't exactly pleased. But he is happy to see one other surprise guest: Emily Peck, who takes a break from networking to show off her moves on the stripper pole and do some serious flirting with Hank. 

As the sun begins to rise, the night of debauched celebration becomes a morning-after of medical crises. With Divya and Jill springing into action to save their friendly cabbie and Hank putting aside childhood grudges to treat an ailing Doug, the events of the night before soon become little more than a memory. Good thing there's footage from a hidden camera to help them put together the pieces....

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!
