ROYAL PAINS “A History of Violins” Review

ROYAL PAINS "A History of Violins" Season 2 Episode 15 - Hank helps end a feud while Evan helps start a political campaign in the "A History of Violins" episode of ROYAL PAINS. Oh, and it looks like Hank and Emily might be done. We can only hope. My apologies to Hank-Emily fans, but I never quite bought that relationship and Emily annoyed me as often as not.

Of all the things I thought might topple the Hank-Emily house of cards relationship, her treating Eddie wasn’t even on the list, but it works very well as a catalyst. "Oh my God; I’m dating my father." Did it really take Hank this long to see that Emily’s ethics are, shall we say, more flexible than his? I’m not convinced this is a complete break yet (she had a distant or absent father, so she just needs to be loved, etc.), but I’m hopeful, and yes, Eddie, you did help.

While I think Paige could have made Evan suffer a bit more, I’m glad they’re back together and as sweetly funny as ever. I don’t mind Evan being goofy-I actually like it- such as when he gets trapped in the passage or when he makes a faux pas like talking to the reporter, so long as he isn’t completely selfish like last week. Anyway, the goofy moments are well-balanced by him being supportive of Paige and calmly calling 911, etc. Vast improvement from last week, behavior-wise. Read More...
