I really hope V doesn't return it
hope_remains 18th-Feb-2013 05:09 pm (UTC)

I seriously can not believe it.

Only on Shameless can I be presented with the prospect of a character's daughter also being her sister and think, "Yeah, that makes sense."
someone 18th-Feb-2013 05:57 am (UTC)
Ommggg Mickey kissed Ian! I almost died. It was perfect.

Tonight's episode was great imo. I loved when Ian confronted Lip about Mandy, and Debbie's revenge with the sand.
NO to the turkey baster scene.
Steve is an asshole and can his father plz go away now.

I can't wait for next week!
deseti_prsten 18th-Feb-2013 06:10 am (UTC)
I just wanted to quickly scroll through the post to get a glimpse of what happened and my computer froze on your comment, lol. Damn it, but :D. Can't wait to watch it now.
someone 18th-Feb-2013 06:31 am (UTC)
Oops sorry! I didn't think of adding a spoiler warning. I hope you enjoy the episode!
hope_remains 18th-Feb-2013 05:10 pm (UTC)
I know!!! I was like AWWWWWW.

Everything you said is accurate, Ian was awesome this ep, and Debbie was so, so badass. What a great actress that girl is, my god. When she was crying in the bathroom, I totally felt her pain.

Although srsly do pre-teen girls really act that way? Do they really give that many shits about some random strange girl that hangs out at the pool that they dont even know, enough to terrorize her that badly? I guess it's possible.

ian and mickey are end game, i was ugly sobbing. this preview didn't help either.
black_phoenix 18th-Feb-2013 06:27 am (UTC)
As long as Ian's endgame doesn't end up being Mandy this time.
pastelward 18th-Feb-2013 06:31 am (UTC)
lmao don't even talk to me about that, i hated uk shameless and that was the cherry on the shit cake.
alexlover14 18th-Feb-2013 07:15 pm (UTC)
I thought Ian's endgame was Carls ex-gf on UK Shameless? (which was just as bad a plot)

Then again I stopped watching Season 6.
lanavis 18th-Feb-2013 10:16 pm (UTC)
Gurl, don't even.
I'm still pissed. Not at him being bi, but at just suddenly becoming bi out of the blue. I would not have minded it as much if he had some actual good gay relationships beforehand.
evett 18th-Feb-2013 07:01 am (UTC)
I wanted Ian/Mickey to be endgame on the UK one but it never happened so I need it to happen in the US one.
emerald_soul 18th-Feb-2013 06:10 am (UTC)
I loved the voicemail Lip left Karen. She deserved it.

Poor Deb is going nuts. I wonder if they'll diagnose her with a mental illness of some sort.
nekokonneko 18th-Feb-2013 06:11 am (UTC)
why? she was stressed out from being bullied and possibly losing a friend, and she has a temper but she's otherwise mentally stable
emerald_soul 18th-Feb-2013 06:13 am (UTC)
She's got major emotional problems. She kidnapped a baby when she felt lonely after Aunt Ginger went back to the home, beat up her dad with a bag of rocks I think it was, and tried to drown someone for picking on her. I wouldn't call that normal.
pastelward 18th-Feb-2013 06:13 am (UTC)
i hope she comes back and mandy* beats her ass tbh.

katiefitch 18th-Feb-2013 06:16 am (UTC)
i know she was bipolar in the UK version so i'm wondering if they're going down that path here too
or maybe she wasn't idk i read it somewhere but i could be mixing shit up

Edited at 2013-02-18 06:17 am (UTC)
tutorgirlx 18th-Feb-2013 06:27 am (UTC)
ITA about the voicemail. I wonder if that's the writers giving Lip closure or if she'll come back eventually. I wouldn't mind if she came back and tried to be good again but if they had her back to cause hell it would just be stupid.
h0tfuss 18th-Feb-2013 12:28 pm (UTC)
She's a sweet, emotional kid who never had the opportunity to learn how to interact with people properly. When you think about it, Ian is way too well-adjusted for that family.
elksa 18th-Feb-2013 06:10 am (UTC)
I'm kind of more on Fiona's side when it comes to Jimmy's whining, since I think he's a scumbag, but the "why don't you go cry to your gay dad about it" line was painful

and I really hope they don't just write off Molly someone who was brainwashed by her mother, and call her 'him' etc., since she seems to like being a girl

also after this episode I'm just waiting for Karen to come back...
pastelward 18th-Feb-2013 06:13 am (UTC)
i clapped at that line, ngl. he's such an asshole. he's "there" for her but he can't be honest with her about anything going on in his life until he needs to whine to someone about his dad's sexuality. then they get in one fight and he goes to fuck someone else? nope. fuck him.
heart_iswild 18th-Feb-2013 06:24 am (UTC)
me and my dad whistled
elksa 18th-Feb-2013 06:25 am (UTC)
yeah I guess he did deserve it

the line just echoed something that was said to me once, and I guess that's why I reacted negatively
tutorgirlx 18th-Feb-2013 06:31 am (UTC)
I also thought that when she woke up the next morning, Jimmy was gonna be digging up the lawn to like somewhat show that he understands where she's coming from. They're destroying that relationship for me realllllly fast.
lightwillguide 18th-Feb-2013 06:15 am (UTC)
I'm totally Team Fiona on that one. Like, I get it would be jarring, but his parents hated each other anyways, it's not like he'd looked like a loving doting husband and was actually diddling dudes.

I'm not sure how I feel about the Molly thing either, like I loved that she was a little trans girl, the conversation she had with Debbie last week just was so beyond cute (yeah but I'm a girl, so it's my girl penis).

Ugh, I hope Karen is gone. I'm just sick of Lip's plots at this point.
hera_bearrra 18th-Feb-2013 06:30 am (UTC)
Team Fiona

Jimmy is a douchebag. He goes and cheats on her? Because she doesn't have time to deal with his daddy problem in the middle of digging up a dead body? Ugh.
tube_fiend 18th-Feb-2013 09:31 am (UTC)
I haaate Jimmy. It seriously bugs me that he's the main love interest on the show, since he is so terrible. UK Steve wasn't perfect, but he truly adored Fiona AND her family.

That being said, I thought she was a little unfair with all of that. Yes, he was whiny and it wasn't attractive. Yes, it seemed petty compared to their problems. But these people live a life full of shit - all of his problems are going to seem petty. That doesn't mean they should all be dismissed. For most people, finding out that your father has been cheating on your mother for years with a wide assortment of men, including teenagers, would be pretty jarring. Just let him bitch without belittling his feelings.

...But then he's the biggest douchebag in the world, so whatever, belittle him. And dump him. Fuck JimmySteve.
hope_remains 18th-Feb-2013 05:17 pm (UTC)
Totally. Jimmy does have a point but he's been whining about his gay dad for DAYS. Yeah, his world was rocked but she WAS listening to him. She just didn't make his thing a priority in her life. She does play "my tragedy is worse than your tragedy" but to be fair, her tragedies are SO EXTREME. The idea of finding out your dad is gay is such a non-issue to her compared to everything else. Jimmy just needs perspective.

As for Molly, yeah. At first I thought maybe she was a transgendered girl whose mom was encouraging her to explore the fluidity of her gender. But nope... she was essentially just raised that way because of her mom's mental disorder. It's really complicated but she does seem to embrace being a girl at this point so... yeah. Really interested to see where they're going to go with that.
lightwillguide 18th-Feb-2013 06:12 am (UTC)
That turkey baster scene was funny as hell. I'll be doing that in about 6 years when my wife and I want a baby, I'm totally putting my buddy in the closet to do it too now. LOL

This episode was so good, and now I need it to be next week!!! SO MUCH IS HAPPENING, OMG!!!

I totally ate a pillow when Mickey kissed Ian. Steve can go now, but his dad is hilarious so I don't mind if he stays, plus he's putting the heat on Mickey so keep up the good work sir!

Poor Fiona, how she doesn't have bleeding ulcers is completely beyond me.
osnapitsrj 18th-Feb-2013 06:13 am (UTC)
when she put put the turkey baster in herself,lawd ive seen it all lmfao

idt there's been a fictional character that i've wanted to strangle more than him
black_phoenix 18th-Feb-2013 06:29 am (UTC)
This is the first TV I've loved that I've fast-forwarded through part of.

Guess whose parts?
lovetake_over 18th-Feb-2013 08:06 am (UTC)
i am so sick of his shit
hope_remains 18th-Feb-2013 05:22 pm (UTC)
yuuuup. He is literally the worst. I dont think I have ever seen a more self-centered, selfish, manipulative person on tv ever. EVER. But I like that the kids dont even bother to try to help him anymore. Like in season 1, they would pull his unconscious ass out of the snow so he wouldn't die. Now they wont. It's good. (Except for Debbie who really needs to work through some shit mentally, my god.)
tutorgirlx 18th-Feb-2013 06:20 am (UTC)
God, I fucking can't stand Mandy at all. Maybe if the actress wasn't so unbearable but jesus...

Lip and Mady would never work because he needs someone who can at least somewhat keep up with him mentally. That was the only good thing about Karen until they destroyed her character.
pastelward 18th-Feb-2013 06:22 am (UTC)
lmao, really? at least mandy actually cares about lip's education and wants him to go to college and better himself. karen didn't give a fuck about any of that.
tutorgirlx 18th-Feb-2013 06:35 am (UTC)
Yeah, Mandy cares about Lip's education because when she has a boyfriend her life entirely revolves around that person, as they showed in this episode. She has no self-identity at all.

I'm not saying I want Lip with Karen, but I hate Mandy as a substitute and I'd prefer if they put him in a relationship with a likable character who had a personality.
tube_fiend 18th-Feb-2013 09:36 am (UTC)
I don't agree. I think Karen cared about him going to college. The difference is that Mandy wants to push Lip there and ride his coattails. (I'm not judging - she comes from an abusive household, ride those coattails and get the fuck out of dodge, girl.) Karen, however, knew (or believed) she wouldn't be taken along for the ride. He would leave her. So she regularly pushed him away. And very clearly did not want to hold him back.

Both girls are looking out for themselves. It makes sense that since Mandy's version is to attach herself to Lip, it would be in her best interests to further his. And it would be in Karen's best interests to focus on herself.
elksa 18th-Feb-2013 06:24 am (UTC)
I think Mandy >>>>> Karen

she's not as smart as Lip, but I don't think she's dumb

the only thing I'm disappointed about when it comes to her character is that they had to switch actresses
emerald_soul 18th-Feb-2013 06:30 am (UTC)
She's definitely very blah, but she's a better person than Karen by far.

I think Lip would be cute with a nerdy girl somewhere down the road though.
hera_bearrra 18th-Feb-2013 06:33 am (UTC)
Mandy has street smarts, at least.
hearthecity 18th-Feb-2013 06:39 am (UTC)
The actress who played Karen was so good, but they really fucked that character over by the end.

Can't warm up to Mandy at all.
slashydrunkard 18th-Feb-2013 07:47 am (UTC)
ia. I hate Mandy. I actually really liked her before when the other actress played her, but now she's just super annoying and bland.
tube_fiend 18th-Feb-2013 09:43 am (UTC)
I really liked Karen, so I'm hopeful this was all foreshadowing that she was coming back, and not just a plot to show Lip letting her go so he can really be with Mandy now.

I don't think I was nearly as bothered as most of the posters here were by Karen last season. Yes, she could be a bitch. But she was dealing with a lot, and giving up her baby. I think people mistook her coldness for being evil, but I think it's very common for mothers about to give up their babies to become cold and appear mean and unfeeling. It's their way of distancing themselves from their reality. And I DEFINITELY supported her desire to give the baby to social services instead of her mother. She spent her whole life taking care of her mother. If her mother took the baby, Karen would have ended up right where she didn't want to be - taking care of a baby. Because clearly Sheila isn't equipped - she is oblivious to the fact that Frank is drugging the poor kid! It's sick. The baby would have been MUCH better off with Social Services, where the chances of finding a home for a newborn, even with Down's, are still very good.

Anyway, essay over, just sayin' I like Karen.

i just have a lot of feelings, ok?
hearthecity 18th-Feb-2013 06:41 am (UTC)
aww perfect
yeezy 18th-Feb-2013 07:44 am (UTC)
ugh so perfect, best part of this ep
tutorgirlx 18th-Feb-2013 06:38 am (UTC)
best part of the episode by far
ashe_frost 18th-Feb-2013 06:22 am (UTC)
I have been waiting for this post forever.

Is it just me or was Mickey cleaner this ep, like he wanted to look nice for Ian?

I love this show. I can't help it. I almost died when CPS came in. What a mess.
hearthecity 18th-Feb-2013 06:38 am (UTC)
Mickey totally showered this episode
tube_fiend 18th-Feb-2013 09:53 am (UTC)
Would that it were the case, since Ian/Mickey are my faves right now, with my only hesitation being the occasional thought of Mickey's stench.

But I suspect that Mickey must shower every other week, so we just caught him fresh off his bi-monthly cleanse.
hope_remains 18th-Feb-2013 05:25 pm (UTC)
Omg I know, I died too. I was SCREAMING. Like, every horrible thing that could possibly be happening, happened when CPS was there.

Pulling a bullet out of some guy's ass
Digging a dead body out of a front lawn that literally smells like shit
Debbie bragging about almost drowning a girl
Babies EVERYWHERE screaming and crying
Everyone covered head-to-toe in mud

and there was probably more. I was just like omg. And now next week they get sent to live with some crazy-ass foster parents?! AHHHHH I NEED IT TO BE NEXT WEEK NOW
