    I enjoyed seeing the gang again but man they crunched a lot into one episode.

    Everyone coming back from the winter and getting things together again. Is there really no need for HankMed in the winter?

    Each character had something to be resolved and it seemed like they had to do it in this first episode.

    They do need HankMed in Winter. Hank and Dyvia were mentioned as staying and seeing patients over the winter.

    I'll miss Jill, if she is truly gone.

    I thought the same thing, that they really were trying to resolve a lot of last year's plot lines in the first episode.

    I'm not sure I like Hank going back to live in Boris-land. I thought that was a good break last year as it lead to Hank being forced to be more independent.

    I'm tired of the pregnant Cuban doctor baby story as well.

    Anyone else think that Evan's GF was not coming back (and that they wrote her out of the show?) She didn't look all that happy about being back with Evan...maybe that's coming.

    I will miss Jill too, but perhaps she's only available for a few episodes this year, so she'll be back later in the season. My guess is that Hank either falls for Divia or the divorced woman from this episode and Jill comes back to complicate things (again!).

    Does Divya own anything but white pants?

    Is it me, but did Christine Ebersol ALWAYS play Hank and Evan's father's GF?

    I was thinking that about the divorced woman and Hank towards the end of the show, but if Jill comes back to complicate things, it will be just like last season with the female doc and all that.

    I missed that. It seemed that Dyvia was away solving fiancee problems and Evan was out and about with GF. I hope they stay together.

    If anyone else noticed (wife did), the divorced patient was Natalie Zea... who play Winona on Justified.

    Oh, I definitely noticed it was Natalie Zea. I'm hoping she might stick around and get chummy with Hank now that Jill is taking herself out of the picture.

    I know it's incredibly shallow to still be missing "Sexy Dirty Money," but I do. :D

    Yes, I definitely thought of DSM when I saw her, and thought she would be the possible "love interest" to Hank.

    I was thinking Evan's GF parents are either getting divorced, or lost all their money, and now she has to come to rely on Evan, and Evan can't handle it.

    Winona is much hotter than the char Zea plays on RP tho. :)

    Evan and his GF HAVE to stay together. It's smarmy sweet sometimes but yeah I like their relationship. BTW the song playing when they meet is 'The Lucky One' by Jess Penner. You have to wonder when the writers will explore the Evan - Divia 'I hate you cause I like you' dynamic.

    How long IS the Hampton "Summer season"?

    Either it's a long one, or Cubans have some really long gestational periods.

    Hahah Unbeliever!

    I'm still watching this. Remember the first season when many of us bailed because the brother was so intolerable? They did fix that and I've enjoyed it since. I hope this season holds my interest, but, not sure.

    WTF? Marisa has been pregnant for a year now? That's pretty ridiculous.

    When did she get pregnant? On the show calendar, I mean?

    Well, yeah, but we don't know how long the "summer season" is in the Hamptons. If it is 4 months, and she got pregnant near the end, she could be ready to blow at the start of the next. And she did look ready to pop.

    I think the Hampton's season is Memorial Day to Labor Day. And she was far enough along last year for Hank to run tests on her. Didn't he check the amniotic fluid or something to check for Boris' disease? Which would mean she got pregnant early last summer, or maybe mid-summer at the lastest. Which means she's been pregnant for close to a year.

    Definitely no amnio, since they still did not know in this episode whether the baby has it or not.
