Royal Pains brothers

"Royal Pains" review by Suzanne
Premieres Wednesday, June 12 at 9/8c on USA Network

Royal Pains is always a light, fun show, with moments of drama. At the end of last season, Boris was caught in an explosion (seemingly died) and Hank got caught in the blast. At the beginning of this season, we see that Hank has had a brain operation. SPOILERS ALERT >>>>>>>>Hank is fine but recovering, and at the end of the first episode this summer, there are hints that he may get addicted to pain pills. Evan and Divya are very worried about Hank pushing too soon to come back, and we see why in flashbacks of Hank lying in bed, not waking up, having seizures etc. Evan's worry about his brother puts his new marriage in a little bit of jeopardy.

We see that they have hired other doctors to help out while Hank recovers, and also, Jeremiah returns. He clearly still has a big crush on Divya. Divya has split from her boyfriend but then gets big shocking news.

Of course they have the usual patients that they see on the island. A woman keeps fainting and doesn't know why, and another woman who gets sick actually causes some legal trouble for HankMed!

It's a good episode, so make sure you tune in. This is always such an enjoyable show.

The second episode is also very good. Evan thinks his house is haunted, and he fights against the neighborhood lady that is causing Hankmed problems. Hankmed gets a big offer from the new company that's running Hamptons Heritage. Divya gets even more news... Hank gets in a car accident and meets some new patients. I can't wait to see more!
