Synopsis


It's Evan vs. Emily Peck in the battle for Hamptons concierge doctor internet dominance. When he discovers Emily's online maneuvers to siphon off potential HankMed clients - and learns that his brother has been sleeping with the enemy - Evan enlists the help of his distracted father to come up with a strategy for retaliation.

Also spending way too much time strategizing about insignificant things is Stanley, a reclusive young process server with an abiding passion for war-simulation video games, who turns to the clinic when he finds himself for once facing a real threat to his health. He's not the only one coming under fire: Dr. Blair and the hospital board have enlisted Stanley to serve Jill and the clinic with a cease and desist order. Jill manages to persuade Dr. Blair to back down by dropping Boris's name, but her ultra-private anonymous donor doesn't take kindly to losing his prized anonymity.

Equally ill-tempered is new HankMed client Dr. Harrison Phillips, a renowned retired surgeon who's doing his best to prove the maxim that doctors make the worst patients. When Hank calls Emily in for a consultation, the two doctors find themselves at odds, and their patient's condition grows increasingly threatening. But though tense, the experience of working with Dr. Peck does inspire Divya - who has been interviewing candidates to replace her when she leaves for London - to reconsider her position on Emily, and to come up with an idea that could potentially mean big changes for HankMed.
