Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 10 episode 9: “Gallagher Normal”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 10 episode 9, I learned that a “Gallagher keeps his promise,” but is a promise truly enough for a Milkovich?

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not watched the latest episode yet.

In last night’s episode, “O Captain, My Captain,” Faye continues to interrogate Frank while the rest of the Gallagher household carries on without him.  Meanwhile, Debbie meets Claudia’s daughter, Lip tries to make some extra cash, and Kev and V’s latest side hustle takes an unexpected turn.

My top 5 moments from Shameless season 10 episode 9 are:

5

“Can someone be a hero please?”

Carl continues to take his position very seriously as the youth group leader for the police, but perhaps he should remember that carte blanche doesn’t exactly mean sending these kids to the hospital to prove a point.  It looks like Carl is off to the sanitation department where he can literally clean up the streets of Southside.

“I’m a lot more lucid when I’m drunk.”

A fair point for sure, Frank, as Faye (Elizabeth Rodriguez) continues to keep him handcuffed to the bed until he admits that he wronged her former love.  It takes Frank quite a few tries, but once she throws some opioids into the mix, the memories start to come back.

It looks like Faye is not done with Frank just yet, as she drugs him up and leaves him in a car with all of the evidence.  Watch out, Frank!

“She’s a terror. Stay strong.”

After Debbie and Claudia try out using the commitment friendly word, “girlfriend,” it seems like things are going in the right direction.  That is, until Debbie crosses paths with Claudia’s teenage daughter, Julia.

Julia explains that her mother constantly tells her that she is fat and convinces Debbie to help her skip out on the dreaded Spin Class so that they can get some fried food instead.

After Julia kisses Debbie, it looks like she is now in a world of trouble.  I can’t see this ending well, but it looks like this family love triangle will continue in next week’s episode.

At least Debbie has cleared up the hooker confusion.

“How do you know you love me?”

After Ian basically leaves Mickey at the altar, Mickey decides to move out and move on.

Ian recognizes what Mickey is doing and tries to make it up to him by buying a promise ring, but Mickey is not so impressed.

Ian is clearly scared of marriage, but his love for Mickey transcends this so I hope that these two can figure things out before it’s too late!  We’re rooting for you, Gallavich!

“Nurse V’s Jiffy Care!”

“Naked breasts don’t exactly say quality health care,” but Kev does make the point that they could if their new medical side hustle includes mammograms.  The maid service van is cleverly turned into Nurse V’s Jiffy Care, as V decides to bring some cheap and needed healthcare to the Southside.

It seems like business is booming, but things get complicated when a fifteen-year-old girl from out of state is in need of an abortion.  V gets creative with her new doctor friend to do all she can to help these girls in need, but it looks like they are now getting quite the reputation.

Perhaps they need to come up with a new side hustle.  Either way, I’m always on team Kev and V!  More please!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 10 episode 8: “Debbie Might Be a Prostitute”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 10 episode 8, I realized that if you’re a Gallagher, “always lie.”  Seems like an easy motto to follow when in doubt…

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not watched the latest episode yet.

In last night’s episode, “Debbie Might Be a Prostitute,” Debbie realizes that there may have been a miscommunication between her and Claudia.  Meanwhile, Carl, Liam, and Kev and V try out new business ideas, Tami and Lip have trouble finding a sitter for baby Freddy, and Frank investigates a haunted house with Faye.

My top 5 moments from Shameless season 10 episode 8 are:

“This is my calling.”

After Carl’s attempt to clean up the streets of Southside, he now realizes that he wants to find his true purpose in life.  Carl wants to become a cop, but is too young, but that is not going to stop him.  After a failed attempt to show a fake ID, the cops tell him that they have the perfect opportunity for him.

Carl is now the leader of the youth committee and he is ready to whip these kids into shape, showing off his three skills:  Choking things, good with weapons, and a buttload of rage in his heart.  I mean, that would really make any resume stand out.

“What do real people do with money?”

After getting an unexpected check from the IRS for $825, Kev and V are ready to be smart about their money.  Only they end up getting involved in a pyramid scheme for EscarGold, which is some kind of eye face mask thing that burns their faces off.

Kev and V are stuck now, but that is not going to stop them from being inventive, as they come up with an idea to sell it as some kind of hemorrhoid cream.  “Your butt will thank you!”

“Who else you gonna call?”

Elizabeth Rodriguez continues to light up the screen as Frank’s new friend, Faye, who appears to live in a Rolls Royce, but after Kev asks her up front, we discover that she does have a beautiful house…except it is apparently haunted.

Frank is up for the challenge and offers to help her, especially after he hears about all the Scotch that is there, but things go off track when Faye handcuffs Frank to the bed, showing him an old videotape of when her husband was sent away to prison when Frank was given a pass.

Faye clearly blames Frank for what happened and it doesn’t look like she is going to let him go until she gets some answers, but we know that Frank Gallagher can somehow find his way out of every situation…

“You hit the jackpot.”

After Debbie discovers that her new friend, Claudia, gave her $1000, she realizes that she may have been mistaken for a prostitute.  Apparently, Debbie was hanging out at “hoe corner,”  so I guess she should be careful about where she stands.

Debbie visits Claudia to clear things up and Claudia seems willing to take her to dinner, but she insists that Debbie keep the money and starts to buy her extravagant presents.

Megan tells Debbie that she basically hit the jackpot or the “motherload” with this sugar mama opportunity, but I’m not sure how Debbie really feels about this.  We’ll have to see how this goes…

“Do you love and trust me too?”

After Paula gets thrown out a window, both Ian and Mickey think the other one is responsible for her murder.  They find out that if they are married, they will never have to testify against each other and decide to see this plan through, but it is later revealed that Paula’s girlfriend was the one who killed her.

Mickey still seems ready to marry Ian, but Ian has second thoughts.  After all, he has witnessed a broken marriage in his own family so it may take him some time, but I am confident that Gallavich is going to find its happily ever after story!
