Royal Pains Exclusive First Look: Evan Wages War to Save HankMed

Paulo Costanzo

In the battle of old money vs. new money, who will win?

On the Royal Pains premiere, Hank (Mark Feuerstein) and Evan (Paulo Costanzo) met Hamptonite Blythe Ballard (Frances Conroy), who went from a new patient to their biggest adversary yet. Before the Lawsons knew it, Blythe was presenting them with a cease-and-desist letter, ordering HankMed to stop practicing in the Hamptons immediately. But the brothers are never ones to stay quiet. With Hank dealing with his own issues stemming from his brain surgery, Evan will take it upon himself to wage war.

Royal Pains bosses, cast spill on the season premiere shocker

"One of the big arcs for the season, both narratively and emotionally, is Evan finally confronting this outsider status that he's always felt since he got [to the Hamptons], creator Andrew Lenchewski tells TVGuide.com. "Blythe ... represents everything he's always felt rejected by — the old Hamptons guard, old money, the very exclusive tightknit elite — and he feels like this is the opportunity for him to finally be included and at the same time give voice to Hank Med's interest."
