Business and Pleasure

Hank and Christina are getting cozy, even though she doesn't fully understand the charm of the Hamptons. But their little love bubble gets burst when Evan meets Christina at the Hamptons Speed Rally and is miffed that Hank has been keeping his new relationship a secret. Then Boris warns Hank that he should be careful with Christina, which Hank finds irksome especially since Boris is the one who put them together in the first place. Hank can't tell what Boris's endgame is on this one, but he's not about to let Boris call the shots about his personal life, too.

While Hank attends to a DEA agent who is working undercover at the Hamptons Speed Rally and suspects she contracted meth toxicity, Divya coaches Jeremiah with a case that's of a less straightforward scientific nature. Their new patient is complaining about symptoms that could mean postpartum depression, but both Divya and Jeremiah are surprised to discover that it's not the new mother, but her husband, a Mixed Martial Arts champion, who seems to be suffering from the syndrome. This case might take more of a gentle touch than the socially challenged Dr. Sacani can handle.

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!
