Royal Pains Review: "Run, Hank, Run"

at . Comments

Hank treated a runner who had trouble controlling her body temp, Boris' was poisoned with thalium - his life hanging in the balance - and Evan entered Paige's art, without her consent, into the Hamptons Art Show.

And it all happened on "Run, Hank, Run."

It was a shame guest star Wilmer Valderama didn't receive more screen time, but the story surrounding his appearance, namely the revealing portrait of Evan, was enough to make up for it.

I thought it was funny that Evan was unaware of which piece had been chosen until it was too late. He knew that portrait was somewhere in Paige's portfolio. That alone should have encouraged more discretion on his part with regard to art show entries.

The embarrassment seemed worth it, given that the piece was sold.

What was truly unfortunate was when Evan discovered that Paige had been telling her parents that she was with him all the time. Hank was right, there are things Evan doesn't know about Paige.

Luckily, next week we'll finally have all our questions answered with regards to Paige and her mystery medical condition.

On the Boris front, it was pretty intense. He went through thalium poisoning, which presented much like the degenerative genetic disease from which he suffers. The revelation that Boris may only have a genetic mutation, rather than an actual illness, was a surprise.

It does leave a lot of questions about what Boris experienced medically throughout the course of the show. But how amazing would it be if Carlos was able to grow up with his father, and not suffer the painful fate to which Boris has become so accustomed?

I can't believe that Boris was poisoned, and maybe by the people closest to him. I knew it would have something to do with Carlos being the new heir to the empire, but I never imagined the potential of his own family being behind it. People can suck sometimes, huh?
