Final Episode of “Royal Pains”

Posted on July 6, 2016 at 8:00 am

I have really enjoyed “Royal Pains,” and it is bittersweet to see it come to an end tomorrow, July 6, 2016. Mark Feuerstein plays the “concierge doctor” helping patients, mostly very wealthy ones, in the gorgeous Hamptons. The sumptuous, sun-drenched settings added a lot of interest to the story of doctor Hank Lawson, his enterprising brother Evan (Paulo Costanzo), their physician’s assistant Divya (Reshma Shetty). The series blended long-term arcs and the personal and romantic lives of the characters with the kind of solve-the-disease drama that has been a staple on television since the days of “Marcus Welby, M.D.” and “Dr. Kildare.”

Last week, there was a delightful musical episode featuring Oscar-winner Cloris Leachman.

And things seem to be moving toward a happy ending for everyone. Evan and his wife Paige (Brooke D’Orsay) are expecting a baby at last, Divya is about to deliver a fourth child for her blended family and start medical school, the Lawsons’ dad (Henry Winkler) is happily re-married, and Hank is ready to move on.
