'Royal Pains' Premiere: Hank And Even's Relationship Continues To Crumble (VIDEO)

Divya had no idea what a colossal nightmare she would unleash last season when she sold her shares of HankMed to Evan. In fact, Evan didn't even realize at first that this gave him a controlling stake in the company. But when he tried to push his agenda on Hank, his brother quit. That's where "Royal Pains" (Wed., 9 p.m. ET on USA) picked things up for its Season 4 premiere.

While Evan moved forward on a Hank-less HankMed, Hank worked with Jill on setting up a private practice. He also treated Jill's brother Ernie, played by Donal Logue, who was participating in a competitive eating contest. Divya was working with one of the other competitors.

But that's about as close as things got to the good old days. Even Divya's attempts to force the brothers together over a dinner to try and hash out their differences couldn't stop them from fighting. It's a rare gloom over the series that usually manages to leave things sunny and happy, but it should make for some interesting tension over the next few weeks until inevitably, HankMed is reunited and comes back stronger than ever.

Catch new episodes of "Royal Pains" every Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET on USA.
