"The Hankover" of Royal Pains, Season 2 Ep. 8

Inspired by 2009's The Hangover film, Royal Pains' episode 8 begins with our favorite characters waking up, disoriented, all over the Hamptons. Dr Hank is in bed, or a hammock as the case may be, with the evil (okay, I think she's evil) rival Conceirge Dr, Emily Peck. Jill and Divya, dressed like tramps, wake up together in the back of a cab, while Evan, waking up alone, finds Raj sprawled out... and maybe dead.

As we flashback to the previous 24 hours we see just how things got this out of control:

Divya's mother planned an engagement tea, and Evan takes on the job of throwing a Bachelor party for Raj... you know, to see what kind of guy he is. Divya and Jill ditch the engagement tea to hang out with Divya's sister- and discuss the reality of living in a satisfying arranged marriage- only to find out that Divya's sister is not happily married, but is in fact having an affair! (shock, surprise, blah blah.)

After the night of partying we, the audience and the main characters, learn that 1.Raj really loves Divya (he offers the stripper from his bachelor party a job at his hotel as a fitness trainer, so that she can stop stripping) and 2. Dr Peck and Hank will continue to hook up, but she's not into the commitment thing- o no! What about Jill?!?!?!

Well, it wouldn't be Royal Pains without all sorts of medical jargen: Hank's patient happens to be his middle school bully- who ends up having been bullied himself by his brothers, thus having a plastic toy to lodge in his sinus and 20 years later cause problems. Divya and Jill treat their cab-driver, a diabetic named Aristotle.

All's well that ends well- but I cant wait remove the useless as an appendix Dr Peck.

What do you think of Dr Peck? Interesting? Or just a bitch?

The scene at lunch with Divya where Dr Peck announces her "3 second rule" (when someone calls for a dr, she waits three seconds before responding) doesn't make you hate her?I'm not denying that I prefer Jill for Hank, but I (mostly) dislike Dr Peck based on her actions.
