Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 11 episode 7: “Two at a Biker Bar, One in the Lake”

Happy Monday TV fans! After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 11 episode 7, I learned that sometimes people make different choices and that’s OK.

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

In season 11, episode 7, “Two at a Biker Bar, One in the Lake,” the Gallagher family continues to argue over whether or not to sell their home. Meanwhile, Ian and Mickey decide to make new friends, another secret about Sandy is revealed, and Carl has a meltdown during a safety presentation for kids.

My top 5 moments from Shameless season 11 episode 7 are:


“I’m not living with your family.”

The vote is still undecided, but Tami is ready to move back in with her family until they can get back on their feet. Lip refuses to live with her family; however, and would rather “slit his throat.”

Lip continues to try and convince the rest of the family to sell the house so he can make enough cash, but eventually makes a compromise and applies for a job at an Amazon facility to appease Tami, but it may be too late for that now…


“Please don’t let me die.”

Meanwhile, Kev gets into a little bit of trouble when a cop pulls him over riding one of Lip’s stolen bikes. Only she seems more interested in buying the bike and knows exactly where to find Kev thanks to his T-shirt.

Kev decides to move the bikes, but things get tricky, causing him to actually ride one into Lake Michigan.

There goes twenty grand…


“I guess you’re a better person than I am.”

After the reveal about Sandy’s husband, we now discover that she also has a son named Prince. Prince is actually pretty adorable, but Sandy says that she doesn’t want to be his mom.

This strikes a nerve with Debbie, who has given up everything for her own daughter. She tries to tell Sandy that she can’t just abandon her child, but Sandy tries to explain that she was just trying to figure out who she was and brings up some of Debbie’s emotional baggage in the process.


“If I need friends, you need friends.”

Gallavich continues to bring us some hilarious moments as they come to an agreement that they need to make some new gay friends. After striking out a few times, they meet a gay couple and are invited to a book signing.

Mickey works on his dazzling smile and the two eventually decide that this may not be the best place for them, although they put on a showstopping number of “Rain On Me.”

More please!


“Let’s just vote and be done with it.”

Easier said than done, as the vote ends up being tied. The arguing continues, but Lip decides to walk in with a sledge hammer and start forcing his “open floor plan” on everyone. Frank eventually stumbles into the chaos and has been dealing with his own issues throughout the episode, but he seems temporarily relieved to see his family.

At the very of the episode, the cops are looking for Lip and Debbie confirms that he is inside, which means that things are about to go from bad to worse for Lip.

Let’s see how this all turns out…

Stay tuned, Gallagher fans!

It was only supposed to be temporary…but when Olivia Crewe accepts a new position that seems too good to be true, she soon discovers that twelve other girls previously had the same job as her. Only none of them lasted for more than thirty days. No notice. Nothing…right before they mysteriously disappeared without a trace.

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 10 episode 1 Season Premiere: “I’m Not Fiona!”

Happy Sunday TV fans!  After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 10 episode 1 season premiere, I realized that everyone deserves to feel special every once and a while, but is Debbie really able to fill Fiona’s shoes?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  

In tonight’s episode, “We Few, We Lucky Few, We band of Gallaghers,” Debbie tries to keep the family in line, which is no easy task.  Meanwhile, Lip’s world is about to change, Carl graduates from military school, and Frank reunites with his former partner in crime.  My top 5 moments from the Shameless season 10 episode 1 season premiere are:


“Enjoy it while you can…”

Lip and Tami seem to be getting along quite well during the season premiere.  Tami is heavily pregnant and Lip is slightly confused by how nice she is all the time, but explains it is coming from the hormones.  Lip is warned that this will not last once the baby comes, but is he ready for his life to completely change?

Now that Fiona is gone, Lip should be stepping into the spotlight more, so I’m interested to see how his story and character progresses in the new season.


“He’s stealing my drugs!”

Frank is at it again!  Once he discovers that his doctor is not going to prescribe him anything else after his leg injury heals, Frank is forced to get creative.  He hangs out at a pharmacy and bumps into an elderly woman, stealing her prescription in the process.

The old woman shouts out for the police and Frank decides to make a run for it, but he ends up bumping into his old pal, Mikey, from the Hobo Loco Man challenge.  It looks like Mikey might be hanging around for a while and I’m sure these two will come up with some pretty outrageous schemes along the way.


“I deserve to feel special!”

In the beginning of the episode, Debbie tries to do her best to take care of the family, even creating a chart on how to use Fiona’s money wisely.  Debbie points out that she is not Fiona and she’s not wrong about that, as I did feel a void during the episode, missing my favorite character from the show quite a bit.

Debbie does decide to have some special time for herself, as we discover that she is keeping a hidden storage locker filled with expensive and extravagant clothes and accessories.  She plans on returning everything after a few uses, including her new underwear…

I have to say that I would love to go shopping in Debbie’s storage locker, but you have to wonder if this plan is going to backfire, which will leave her in quite a mess…


“I’m that guy now…”

Kev starts to come to the realization that he’s that guy now…the old guy on the basketball court and he immediately blames the sneakers he is wearing.  V hilariously tells him that he cannot spend $350 on a new pair of sneakers, which motivates Kev to make his own money.

Kev decides to return to his former days of stripping, only he discovers that he is actually filling in on Daddy’s Night.  Either way, Kev certainly makes an impression on the crowd after hilariously being introduced as Captain Crunch.  It looks like that Testosterone Smoothie may have made all the difference!

At the end of the episode, Kev is sporting his new sneakers with pride, but he still can’t make a shot on the basketball court, so I guess it’s back to square one…


“It’s a boy…”

Tami begins to go into labor and Lip rushes over to the hospital.  She ends up having an emergency c-section and Lip meets his new son, who is absolutely adorable.  However, things take a drastic turn when Tami is taken into emergency surgery as well and her life is clearly in danger.

Will Tami be OK?

I actually really like Lip with Tami, but I’m starting to wonder if we are meant to follow his solo journey into fatherhood.  We’ll have to see how this turns out, but I’m really worried about Tami.

Fiona does call during the episode, as we see a missed call from her in the beginning and then we can assume that Debbie is talking to her later when they all meet Lip’s son, but her presence was needed here. 

While I love the other characters on this show, I have always said that Fiona was the heart and soul of Shameless, so it will be interesting to see if they can keep the audience invested without her.

That being said, I thought the season premiere had a lot of potential and I’m interested to see some of these story-lines developed more over the coming season.  Stay tuned!

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts on Shameless below in the comments section.  Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!
