Royal Pains Review: "Big Whoop"

at . Comments

Okay since there's only one more episode left of this second season of Royal Pains - I really thought the brotherly duo would be pulling out all the big guns - but, I was wrong.

If you do follow my reviews, you would know that these last couple episodes have yet to really hold my interests. Maybe they finally reached their peak with The Hankover? Hopefully, I am wrong but, nothing may ever be as good as that episode - again.

Let's get back to my review.

One should have guessed the mysterious cough had something to do with whooping cough since this week's installment was ambiguously titled "Big Whoop". But, surprisingly, I wasn't too keen last night. It did come as a shock to me.

Examination

I really did enjoy the guest stars this week playing the Harrison family. Everyone was so good looking and nice to boot! That was a pleasant sight to see compared to many of Hank's regular patients that treats in the Hamptons.

The scene where Emily was apologizing to Ted for her role in his fathers worsening condition was very touching, but I am not sure I buy that act.

I am 100% on Team Evan and his views of Emily. For whatever reason, she still rubs me the wrong way, and with only one more episode left, I do hope she does something so Hank realizes what type of woman she really is.

Eddie R still continues to keep us guessing. What do you think he really is up to? We know there's something Boris knows about him that has yet to come to light. My guess is, he has been forging Boris's signature for the purpose of stealing his money. Boris is on to him and doesn't have the energy to deal with this problem - yet.

Big Whoops Scene

Divya is still set to marry Raj and move back to England. She has been lining up her ducks for weeks now and if you're one to read spoilers/interviews you would know that there still is a very big spark between her and the hottie last week - Adam - that hasn't yet been extinguished.

Jill really hasn't played such a big part of the show throughout this season. Her character is always in the background and the only thing really happening with her is the clinic. Last night she really upset Boris about using his name to get her clinic back up and running. Sometimes, I just wish they'd bring back her ex husband just to spice things up again.

Like I said before, I wasn't that impressed. Actually, it took a lot of effort for me not to fall asleep watching this week's episode. What did you think of it? Love it or hate is - let us know!

Until next week's season finale, we leave you with a few Royal Pains quotes after the jump!

I didn't like Emily from the moment she showed up. Arrogant and manipulative. I dislike even more how Hank - a pretty smart guy - seem totally oblivious to her schemes and shallowness. Makes me think he's not so smart after all. I stopped watching this episode as soon as Hank came downstairs while Emily and Evan were having the succubus conversation. Evan has been pretty unaware about many things so far, but with Emily, I think he's absolutely 100% correct. Of course, they could have turning point designed to change our opinion of her. But so far, I'm with Even on this as well. A little controversy is good to liven things up, but she's just plain annoying.

I thought the entire season has been lame. Also, the season is so short that it's over before much of anything has happened. Clearly they are dragging out the Divya wedding thing for another year, with nothing much having happened -- at least until the finale - this entire season. No explanation yet of what's going on with Boris's girlfriend, either. Just episode after episode of "set up" followed by Not Much. The first season was a lot better.

Actually, this season has at least 18 episodes - more are coming in January, as USA does with most of their Cable shows
