Wilmer Valderrama Hallucinates on the 'Royal Pains' Finale (VIDEO)

'Royal Pains' - A Little Art, a Little Science'After another fun summer in the Hamptons, it's time to say goodbye to the Lawson brothers for a while with the summer finale of 'Royal Pains' (Wed., 9PM ET on USA). And by "fun," of course, we mean people nearly dying every week.

Art enthusiast Eric has been a medical mystery for a while now, and now he's hallucinating, he's diabetic and he has a medical condition that makes him physically react to artwork.

And on top of all that, some kind of affliction that makes him come across like a very bad actor. Okay, we're just kidding, guest star Wilmer Valderrama.

We're not sure if Valderrama was uncomfortable with the character or the accent or something else entirely, but some of his line deliveries were more awkward than an early Arnold Schwarzenegger movie. We kept hoping that it was because his character was supposed to be sick and not in the right frame of mind, but that doesn't explain away every moment of awkwardness.

Hank was able to diagnose the hallucinations as a bizarre reaction to the unique lighting he uses to protect the paintings, but Eric's journey to full health isn't quite finished there. By the time the episode wraps, he's at Hamptons Heritage now hanging on for dear life, and it may be because an overworked (two jobs!) Divya may have just given him the wrong meds.

If USA follows last year's format, we'll have to wait until January to see how Eric survives this one, and maybe find out once and for all just what is medically up with him.
