Royal Pains - 5.03 - Lawson Translation - Preview

Royal Pains airs on Wednesdays at 9/8 C on USA Network

It's an action-packed adventure on Royal Pains this Wednesday. Due to an unchecked box, the staff of HankMed find themselves with an unplanned 72 hour vacation. That leaves Divya and Jeremiah flying to Savannah, while Hank decides to go to Budapest to consult with Boris' cousin Milos about Dmitri. Evan stays home to fight Ballard in the village hall. With signatures from every neighbor except her agreeing to zoning changes, Evan is confident the battle is won but Ballard has other ideas. She's been playing Southampton politics for far too long to be deterred. Her vendetta seems personal as she plays every trick she can think of to keep HankMed from operating.

Meanwhile in Savannah, the Symphony hospital is a medical miracle in itself. Both Divya and Jeremiah are impressed by the fact that there's no waiting room and the emergency room is so efficient. Their partnership is less so. Trying to hide his feelings, Jeremiah comes off as curt and unpleasant leaving Divya feeling puzzled and hurt. It even gets in the way of the case of the week, a minor league baseball player whose knee keeps giving out on him. Jeremiah and he bond over baseball and we learn that the game has special significance to Jeremiah. It's fun to see Jeremiah passionate about something. It adds dimension and a little back story to his character.

However by the far the best part of the episode for me takes place in Budapest. Hank meets with Milos and discovers that he has the same bone density problems as Boris, but more severe as Milos is in a wheelchair. After agreeing to look into Milos' medical history, Hank calls Evan to share in the beauty of Budapest. Suddenly Hank is drugged and kidnapped, a reminding of why it is never good for Hank to get involved with Boris' family. Things move rapidly downhill from there as Hank gets caught in the middle.

Episode Awards (Usually I have seen the whole episode before doing these, but the screener fizzled out with about 10 minutes to go. These could change after I have seen the entire episode.)

Best lines:

"Hey our non-business is sending you to Europe. Show a little gratitude."
"Obviously explanations are in order."
"Watching baseball is seeing the impossible become possible."
"Well brothers are never simple."

Best reason to watch: tie - Dmitri and plot twists
Best fictional reason to move to Savannah: Savannah General Hospital - seriously the place is amazing
Best character moment: Jeremiah bonds with pateint
Best guest character: Tripp
Worst guest character: Ballard - she's evil

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
