Happy Sunday TV fans! After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 9 episode 8, the apple may not fall far from the Alibi, but it’s great to have the Gallaghers back with new episodes. Will the Gallagher family be able to help Fiona recover from her downward spiral, however? Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. In tonight’s episode, “The Apple Doesn’t Fall Far From the Alibi,” Debbie tries to pick up the pieces and pay for the bills while Fiona continues to hit rock bottom. Meanwhile, Carl starts a new business venture with Kelly, Tami tries to convince Lip to get his own place, and Frank contemplates fatherhood…again. My top 5 moments from Shameless season 9 episode 8 are:
“Is Jabby grumpy this morning?”
In this episode, we learn that Lip and Tami, played by Kate Miner, are still moving forward with their new relationship, only they are having a difficult time finding a space that is truly suitable for some quality time together. Tami’s roommates are extremely intrusive and Lip’s living situation is an adventure in itself. After hearing an unidentified scratching in Lip’s walls, I’m not really sure that Tami can adjust to the Gallagher lifestyle, but we’ll have to wait and see what’s next for these two.
“I love surprises.”
Well sure, Frank, surprises can be fun. However, I’m not sure that even Frank was ready for his girlfriend, Ingrid, played by Katey Sagal, to announce that she is now ready to finally be a mother. This doesn’t scare Frank off; however, as he is on board to fertilize Ingrid’s eggs and bring us a whole new “menswear line.” Frank soon realizes that he is down to a lone swimmer; however, and decides to take Carl’s “sample” to ensure that they have the best possible chances. And just when I thought that Frank couldn’t hit a new low. Well, perhaps fatherhood will finally agree with him this time around.
“OK whatever the f*ck that is.”
It seems like love is in the air, as Carl continues to flourish in his new relationship with Kelly, played by Jess Gabor. I have to admit that these two are absolutely adorable with their romance and they even work in their military training as well. We know how much Carl loves new business ventures and he can’t help himself when he sees an opportunity in front of him with public scooters. Carl and Kelly begin taking as many scooters as possible and “renting” them out to make some quick cash. After a woman threatens to call the Better Business Bureau on Carl, he hilariously says, “OK whatever the f*ck that is.”
“No one’s playing soccer.”
During the episode, Kev and V are beyond excited to meet their new foster son, Santiago, or “KJ Ball.” While Kev is hoping that Santiago is into baseball over soccer, they soon realize that their new son does not speak any English, but he does have a lovely singing voice and can sing “The Star Spangled Banner” quite well. After Kev and V finally get someone to translate, they learn that Santiago has been separated from his family and realize that they need to help him reunite with them because it’s the right thing to do. Although Santiago definitely “brought the heat” when it came to his curve ball.
“I’m a fun person! I like to have fun!”
Well sure, Fiona, we know that you like to have fun, but I have to say that I am quite concerned about your recent behavior. During the episode, Fiona continues on her downward spiral, as she hits even lower than rock bottom. Fiona has been drinking way too much and even tries out her graffiti skills to make her point, but it doesn’t seem like she is keeping it together at all. At work, she insults customers and focuses on the disgusting gum under the table, rather than deal with the disaster of her own situation, but I’m hoping that her family can intervene and help get her back on track. Based on the previews for new episodes, it looks like Irish Ford will make another guest appearance, but is Fiona finally ready to face him? Stay tuned!

When Kallie Bennett, a jaded teenage girl plagued by her alcoholic mother and her peers molded out of sheer bubble gum perfection, chases after Alice in Wonderland herself, she ends up lost in her own version of Wonderland, which forces her to face her utmost fears and introduces her to familiar characters with a dark twist. Among these characters is Ches, a gorgeous vampire with a conflicted conscience, who becomes Kallie’s guide and blossoming love interest. She also crosses paths with Queen Hartley, a manipulative witch who has the power to strip away one’s memories and imagination, which brings a bone chilling new meaning to “off with their heads.” In The Search for Alice, Kallie starts to realize that her Wonderland is just as frightening as her own reality and that she cannot always run away from her problems. She must figure out a way to defeat Queen Hartley and return home before it is too late, but she soon learns that escaping Wonderland means leaving Ches behind forever.
