Royal Pains 2.12: "Open Up Your Yenta Mouth and Say Ah"

TV: Royal Pains

That's a really long episode title. Anyway! Season finale time! Royal Pains will actually be coming back in January, which seems odd, because it's such a summery show. Will it still be set in the summer, or will we get to see the Hamptons in the off-season? But first, season finale thoughts, after the jump . . .

Patient of the Week: AJ has an ankle problem and falls in Hank's lap. Literally. Then she continues to annoy me for the rest of the episode. And then she collapses, so I feel bad for being annoyed. She makes this so hard for me. This storyline did, however, reinforce how great Hank is, so that's something. Ah! She's Boris's spy. That makes sense, then. Still annoying.

Boris: Far-away meeting! Wants Hank to give him something to keep him going! Jill thinks something's wrong! Oh, good, he got Marissa out! Ooh, she's pregnant! He doesn't know! I have lots of exclamation points!

Lawson family: Dad is moving in with Ms. Newberg - but then he starts having panic attacks. He says they're being he's nervous about living with someone, but Evan thinks there's something else going on, involving the creepy man from the parking lot. Aha! He's spying on Boris. I KNEW I never liked the father. At least the boys aren't in trouble.

Evan: He's starting to be remarkably self-perceptive about his relationship with his dad, and he and Paige are really quite cute together.

Divya: Of course Adam gets sick so they can get thrown back together. Lots of vague mystery illnesses going around this week. I do like Adam, but I don't like the way they're handling this storyline. I just don't think Divya would kiss someone like that. She might be tempted, but . . . no. She's just too professional, for one thing. I did like the nice moment of Divya/Jill friendship at the end, though.

Jill: Her ambush of Hank was pretty adorable, but of course she wanted to talk about Boris. I love the chemistry she has with Hank, so I want them to either get back together, or spend a lot of time together as friends and dance around getting back together.

Overall, this was a somewhat slow finale until the end, when it suddenly all made sense AND was way more interesting than I'd expected! Good job, show!
