As Royal Pains gears up for its final eight episodes, the question on fans' minds is: Will Hank finally find love? The answer, almost definitely, is yes - but if he doesn't, it certainly won't be for lack of trying.
When the eighth season kicks off, Hank meets a number of eligible women through his concierge medical services, including an ambitious politician played by Teri Polo. But the one he's really drawn to is a familiar face. Remember Jen, the nurse played by Jordana Spiro whom Hank flirted with in the Season 7 finale? She and Hank (and her adorable son) reconnect in the May 18 season premiere and, as luck would have it, she's still single, all these months later.
A major curveball in the first episode nearly gives Hank cold feet (infuriatingly). But rest assured, Jank 'shippers, they finally get their date in Episode 2. Don't pop the champagne yet though. Let's just say their dinner doesn't quite go according to plan, and results in what executive producer Andrew Lenchewski calls "probably one of our favorite comedic scenes in the series."
