With their Hamptons medical concierge service, HankMed, busier than ever and Boris’ death still a mystery, Hank finds himself relying on Jeremiah in a very surprising way. Evan’s rescue of an influential neighbour has unexpected consequences for his future. Paige’s work at an auction house gives her an eye-opening look into Boris’ estate. A newly single Divya finds her plan to focus solely on work hitting an unexpected snag after the return of an ex. And a change in ownership at the local hospital brings new complications for HankMed.
