Open Invitation

Hank holds vigil at Don’s bedside, monitoring his friend who’s in a coma after collapsing.  Molly blaming Hank for her father’s condition has the police submit him to a tox screen, which problematically comes back positive. This raises eyebrows at Symphony, and concern from Evan. Hank is more focused on Don though, and he butts heads with the head of the ICU over how aggressive Don’s treatment should be.

Divya and Jeremiah are settling into their roles as roommates quite nicely. But Jeremiah is troubled that Hank went behind his back to get pain medication, and the fact that he’s still experiencing any pain at all.

Evan, worried that Hank is hurting more than he’s letting on, calls on their dad (Henry Winkler), who drops his book tour to rush to his boys’ aid. Eddie wants to stage an intervention with local sobriety guru Lacy Sinclair (Jenna Elfman), herself a former addict.  Lacy herself might have fallen off the wagon, leading Evan to believe she’s not fit for the job.  And the simmering tension between Paige and Evan finally reaches a breaking point when Paige discovers a former attraction of Evan’s, throwing their relationship into chaos

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!
