Royal Pains Season 5 Review “The Party’s Over” – Hank’s Hidden Hurt

In this episode of Royal Pains, called “The Party’s Over,” Hank has to do without his pain meds and discovers a hidden hurt, Paige opens up about her feelings and Divya learns the secret that everyone has been hiding from her.

Hank definitely had a rough time in this episode. As he said, it was a rough couple days that was the culmination of a very rough year. First the explosion, then the surgery and then the pain that seemed to never want to go away that led to the excessive use of painkillers. What Hank didn’t know, and neither did anyone else, was that his use of those painkillers was hiding another problem. Considering how Hank’s life has been going recently, that other problem could’ve been a bad one, but this time luck was on his side and it actually led to a solution. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the culprit behind his pain was a relatively small injury that had more to do with the fall he took off the bar stool than the surgery that cut open his brain. But taking into account the history that he’s had so far, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if those shots only turn out to be a temporary solution and that he ends up needing surgery in the future.
