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
