jamais vu

Jill has asked Hank to volunteer his services at a swank Hamptons horse show that's a fundraiser for her medical clinic, despite the fact that their relationship status is unclear. Naturally, Evan seizes the opportunity to drum up new business for HankMed. Divya, however, is not only taking the day off to compete, but also to put on her own show for her parents who have come to watch her ride. She's hoping that through some fancy footwork, involving Evan and some tall tales, her parents won't catch on that she has been lying to them about her secret life as a Physician's Assistant. But when her father is stung by a wasp and has a serious allergic reaction, hiding her training is no longer an option. 

Meanwhile, Hank plays hardball with Dan, the stable manager, and Beth, his 15-year-old daughter who won't drop out of the competition after Beth has fallen off her horse. Jill tells Hank that Dan was caught up in a performance-enhancing drug scandal a couple of summers ago. This piece of news raises Hank's suspicions that what's really going on with Beth is more than a case of performance anxiety. 

Much to Jill's displeasure, her ex, Charlie Casey, reappears in the Hamptons with the intent of sticking around. Unwittingly, Hank helps Charlie with some minor wounds after Charlie had been run off the road on his motorcycle. But what really bums out Hank is finding out that Jill and Charlie aren't technically divorced, which makes a messy situation between them that much messier.

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!
