Mark Feuerstein says his Royal Pains' is going to face his greatest medical challenge yet.

"In every episode he saves every life, but in this season ... particularly with Jack O'Malley (Tom Cavanagh), it's never been a greater medical challenge," he tells TVGuide.com. "When that comes to a head, it takes the show into an epic and darker dimension than it's ever gone."
