I saw her snap pics of the athlete, but not while he was undergoing any sort of medical procedure or while he was hospitalized. Even if she did, I don't think she's violating HIPAA because she's neither a licensed physician nor an employee of HankMed. Didn't they already do a lawsuit arc when Hank was addicted to his painkillers? I'm not sure the writers will go there again.

Oh, and open letter to TV Fanatic: Forcing visitors to sit through a 2-minute video on a daily basis is gonna cost you hits. I can see that the volume of comments is down, and this is probably the reason. Other sites make visitors sit through a 30-second or 1-minute video every 7 days--just sayin'.....

Pretty good episode, particularly because Jeremiah stepped up and planted one on Vivianna--good on him!!!!!!!! Evan's little dream sequence next to Ray in bed was hilarious. It's not the image I found funny--it's the "hit us over the head with the 'in-bed-with-the-mob' metaphor" that was funny. As for what Paige found in Russell's study, that's intriguing, but I almost feel better if he has it instead of those two entitled peri-millennial brats who don't know how valuable it is (and/or don't care). Emma's little sideline seems innocuous enough, but I wonder if the writers have something in mind for this arc--like MAYBE Emma photographs something or someone she shouldn't. I suppose it could devolve into more melodrama from this "long lost sister" thing if they don't handle that correctly, but they either need to do something with it, or stop showing it.

Soooo the straight characters have a sham gay wedding' and the gay character gets squat? THAT'S the complaint you're gonna get from GLAAD.

Ah, OK thanks. I'm assuming the call was to tell him there'd be "company" waiting for him.

Well well well.....what a tangled little web was woven in this episode. First we learn that creepy Carlito is gay and has the hots for Johnny. I think it's high time TV blew the lid off the whole "Latino macho" thing and recognized that being gay ain't just for white people anymore. On the other hand, Carlito's use of "maricon sucia" (loosely translated: dirty f@gg0+) was repellant and only points to Carlito's own sense of self-loathing (because being gay ain't in keeping with the Latino macho thing). Now let's talk about Jakes. Dude....you're an ICE agent and you broke the law because.....because......because some hooker encouraged you to? AND you paid her to act as your "wingmom" for the day? BTW, did anyone else notice that the hooker got kinda emotional when she saw the toys in the kid's room AND after they dropped the kid off? I think there's a child somewhere in that hooker's past. And last but not least, let's talk about Jess. She didn't get a lot of screen time early on so I was intrigued by the addition of a new character, though I didn't quite trust her. Now that she was an integral part of this episode, I don't trust her even more and have come to realize that the actress who plays her is SERIOUSLY bad--very wooden and unemotional, kinda like a female Keanu Reeves. As for some plot elements: 1) Why did Carlito abort the pick-up? At first I thought it was because the call was to tell him that the mule died, but the man in the cowboy hat showed up anyway, which means there's a snitch and Jess' unannounced appearance seems AWFULLY coincidental... 2) Anyone think Johnny will end up in a triangle with Carlito AND his sister? :-)

Royal Pains Review: Risky Business

Oh Evan EVAN EVANNNNNNNNN....You have sold your soul to Il Diavolo. Coupla weeks with some guy from NJ and suddenly you get all nostalgic? Sum'n tells me Boris is gonna have to bail you out...and you'll be grateful for it. As for this imperious attitude over Paige's business dealings, Get. Over. Yourself. As for what I liked about this ep is what I always like--the medical heroics--and this time, it was Divya's turn to be Medical MacGuyver--good on her!!!!! Oh...and cute "manny" too--I was hoping he'd stay. :-)

All of these seemingly divergent story lines are supposed to come together in the next few episodes so I'm eager to see how it all plays out.
