What do you get when you combine Argentina, a fire, a gunshot, snarks, love and medicine? This week’s episode of Royal Pains.
Last week’s Royal Pains ended on a bad note for Jeremiah and Divya (he booted her and Sashi to the curb), so did these two reconcile at all? Has anyone caught onto Emma’s scheme with Oz? Is Ray really up to no good? Why is Boris back in town? And just what does Evan plan to do when he threatens to harpoon some snarks?
Read our recap of Royal Pains 6×10: “Good Air/Bad Air” to find out!
Friends Advising Friends
When the episode begins, Jeremiah and Divya are still on bad terms and aren’t afraid to let their feelings show in front of Hank and Evan. For those wondering, Divya is indeed out of Jeremiah’s house and now living at her father’s. Hank suggests Divya needs to let Jeremiah cool down before she causes more damage (even though she already did something — more on that later), while Evan advises Jeremiah to secretly help Viviana with her immigration crisis as a romantic gesture.
Your Jet or Mine?
Boris and Hank are off to Argentina to help a potential candidate for the drug trial. Before they head off, Hank invites Divya as an escape and so she doesn’t cause more problems with Jeremiah. Also, this way Divya can introduce Sashi to her grandmother, Lorena (Rafa’s mother). While Hank and Boris tend to their new patient, Tobias (Cristián de la Fuente), Divya is off making nice with Lorena. A family affair soon turns bad when Lorena informs Divya that Sashi cannot leave the country, as she now has an Argentine passport and Rafa wants to see his daughter. Divya is free to leave, but Sashi will need both parents’ consent to exit the country. Divya, you in a mess, girl.
Evan turns into Sherlock Holmes and tries to find out just who shared that photo of Hank and Cinco (whose parents are now suing HankMed) on Snark Hampton. With help from Ray, he doesn’t find out Oz’s identity (anyone else want to call him/her Dr. Oz?), but does learn Emma’s the one who sent the image. Oooo, Emma’s in trouble!
Reverse Robin Hood
Russell was like the reverse Robin Hood tonight. Yes, he started returning those pricey items he took from the rich back to the rich — and all thanks to Paige. He soon learned that one item caused a maid, Wendy, to get fired. Thankfully, Paige made Russell apologize to Wendy. FYI, she also turned out to be suffering from airport malaria (yes, that’s a real illness). Don’t worry, she made a full recovery.
The New Jeremiah
These past few episodes we’ve seen a new Jeremiah. He’s even more fantastic than before. The way he stood up to Divya, confessed his feelings to Viviana and is attempting to save her from deportation is truly romantic. However, we learned at episode’s end that it was actually Divya’s attorney who rescued Viviana, while Jeremiah’s lawyer busy being treated in the hospital. Will Jeremiah forgive Divya? Unfortunately, Viviana told Jeremiah that if she doesn’t get deported, she’s moving to Tulsa to attend physical therapy school. Poor Jeremiah.
Bang, Boom, Bam
Not only did a restaurant fire occur this episode (which just might be good news for Ray’s business aka did he have something to do with it?), but the episode ended on quite the bang — literally. In the midst of Paige helping Ray finish decorating his house, the two decided to have a pillow fight, which ended bloody. Paige is fine, but Ray got shot. Talk about dangerous fun.
