Jill Flint Interview: Royal Relationship Tests to Come
Dry your eyes, Royal Pains viewers. Yes, Jill broke up with Hank on last Wednesday's winter premiere - but, no, we won't be seeing her touch down in Uruguay any time too soon.
In fact, we'll be getting to know this character even better over the next few weeks, Jill Flint told me over the phone.
"You'll start to meet some of Jill's family," the actress said. She had to make a decision with Hank because it wasn't fair to continue in a relationship with him. But they remain colleagues and, of course, will always be friends."
So, with Jill grounded in the Hamptons, what can we expect from her over the next couple episodes?
Star Mark Feuerstein actually directed his first installment of the series and it will air on February 1. Flint said it will feature Jill and Divya finding themselves in a few crazy positions.
"There's a high speed chase, a bug extraction, an impalement, dream sequences. Mark was not given an easy task with this one, but he did a great job."
Viewers can also look forward to a "moment between Jack and Jill," as Flint described it, though she was also quick to clarify:
"It's obvious the two of them do like each other. But I don't foresee Jill completely running off with Jack when she just broke up with the man she's absolutely crazy about."
Overall, Hank and Jill aren't the only two who will face obstacles. With just a few episodes remaining until Royal Pains says goodbye until the summer, the actress teased:
"Every single relationship will be teased in some way, shape or form. People will have to take a moment, stop and really look at themselves to figure out what they want."
