Royal Pains Review: "Listen to the Music"
Because this was the second season finale of Royal Pains, I expected fireworks. Instead, we were left with many unanswered questions
Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed "Listen to the Music," but I just didn't feel that it was climatic enough for a concluding episode.
The impending marriage was laid to rest by the end of the hour because Divya finally realized that marrying Raj was not part of her destiny. Really, all it took was a plague to make her see that Raj wasn't "the one?"
Because we've all been waiting to see how in the heck our girl Divya would get out of marrying this guy, I just expected it to go down at the wedding scene in London. Divya would be dressed in her wedding gown and would give Raj a speech about how they are not made for each other... What can I say? I wanted the drama.
Even Eddie deciding to go to prison instead of escaping via Boris was so anti-climatic.
The two cars pulled up and Eddie finally made the best choice for his sons: to stay and face the music. What I didn't understand was why Boris would give up this opportunity to get rid of Eddie once and for all? Boris said it was in Hank and Evan's best interests to be rid of their dad, but did he really mean inhis best interest?
We got no new news or answers whatsoever about what is going to happen with Marissa and her unborn baby. We don't even know if Boris would consider this child a blessing. All we got was a glimpse at the two of them arguing. What a jip!
Paige and Evan are still as cute as ever. I loved the fact that the season ended with these two lovebirds headed to Europe for a dream vacation. Watching Evan pack and prepare for any circumstance was hilarious.
Even more hilarious? How much Evan believed that he plays a vital role in the company. Yeah, he is the CFO, but I think HankMed will survive without him for a while.
Jill took the job of a lifetime to be able to provide medical services in South America. I was surprised to see Hank not at all devastated. The scene of the two of them on the beach was awkward and felt forced into the storyline.
Now that Jill will be gone, what does that mean? Have the flames of love been extinguished? Do you think Hank will fly out to see her?
I do love this show, but felt that the finale would have been better if the writers actually followed through on storylines. We needed some closure. Instead, the episode left me feeling more than a bit disappointed. How about you?
