Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 10 episode 5: “Hopefully It’s The Last Welcome Home From Prison Party We’ll Ever Throw”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 10 episode 5, Debbie reminded us that “when there’s money involved, a Gallagher’s got nothing but time.” 

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet. 

In last night’s episode, “Sparky,” Ian returns home from prison, but is slightly confused when he walks into his old home.  Meanwhile, Tami adjusts to motherhood, Kev has a disturbing reunion, and Debbie refuses to back down when it comes to Derek’s death benefit.

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

5

“What’s with you and J. Lo?”

Kelly has returned for 48 hours, but she is already attempting to claim her territory, recognizing that Carl may have feelings for Anne.  Anne doesn’t seem too bothered by what is going on, reminding Carl that she is no one’s side piece.

After discovering that Kelly has been with a guy named Mitch and is now in some serious need of Penicillin, Carl has an honest talk with her.  Kelly doesn’t say that she wants to break up with Carl, but it looks like he is free to take some time to see how things go with Anne.

Personally, I think Anne is the better choice, but we’ll have to see how this goes.

“I like your style.”

V has definitely discovered a hidden talent, rocking her power suit with pride when she goes off to her new side job to “deal drugs,” as Kev hilariously says.  V is quite convincing and comes up with one sob story after another to compensate for her lack of knowledge about the medical drugs.

When V meets with the last doctor of the day, she can see right through her bullshit, but tells V that she likes her style and invites her to the cookout, which will be the ultimate place for V to connect with even more doctors.

It looks like V is on her way to fast success and she deserves it!

“Share the joy.”

Ingrid’s ex-husband returns with Frank’s babies and he tries to make a run for it, now finally admitting that the babies are actually Carl’s.  Anne’s family hilariously hangs on to every word, turning this into a real life telenovela, translating that it is “an immaculate conception and the stupid one is the father.”  I’d say that is a fair recap for sure.

After trying to escape this burden, Frank has a change of heart and suddenly sees dollar signs, recognizing that he can sell one of the babies on the black market.

After all, ‘tis the season to share the joy…Gallagher style!

“You’ve been served, bitch!”

Debbie is extremely motivated to obtain Derek’s death benefit, but her lawyer, Patti, who turns out not to be a real lawyer, but she did pass most of her classes, says they are having trouble serving Peppa with the papers.

Debbie attempts to deliver the papers to Peppa, but Peppa continues to outrun her, which forces Debbie to get some backup in Megan and Farhad.  This leads to an eventful high speed chase, where Debbie finally serves Peppa the papers, stuffing them in her mouth.

Only it looks like Peppa is not ready to be fooled, hiring her own military lawyers.  She explains that she will give Franny her portion of the death benefit, but now she wants full custody of her.

Watch out, Debbie.  Money isn’t everything…

“Welcome home Ian!”

When Ian first returns home from prison, he is thrown off by Anne’s family in his home.  After having some interesting adventures as “Sparky” during his new EMT job, it looks like he may have some adjusting to do, but his family comes through for him in the end by throwing him a worthy welcome home party.  They even light a burning van on his cake!

With Fiona’s absence, Ian’s presence is really important here, but it looks like he is in for his fair share of drama, as Mickey may be breaking out in next week’s episode?  After all, love knows no bounds.  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Shameless” season 10 episode 4: “Money Sandwiches with Gravy on Top”

Happy Monday TV fans!  After watching Showtime’s Shameless season 10 episode 4, Frank reminded us that sometimes you have to “look the part,” but it’s important to still recognize who you are at the end of the day.

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In last night’s episode, “A Little Gallagher Goes a Long Way,” Frank helps Mikey embrace his dream for the day.  Meanwhile, Lip and Carl grow closer to their new friends, but how will Tami and Kelly react when they return?

My top 5 moments from Shameless season 10 episode 4 are:

“Look at you two.  Like two friends from that old show…Friends!”

“Only no black friends or Asian friends,” as V and Mimi kindly point out to Kev, but it looks like this is the start of a beautiful friendship for these two and possibly a business partnership? 

V and Mimi are getting along quite well and don’t seem to be too bothered when they throw insults back and forth, but Mimi is beyond thrilled when V comes up with an idea to help her with her business.

Mimi asks V to come and work for her as a side hustle of her very own, but it’s dangerous to mix business and friendship…

Either way, at least Kev has his own side hustle going on still!

“Oh shit, you’re serious.”

While dealing with the strike at work, Debbie suddenly realizes that she needs to find another way to make money…fast.  She runs into an old friend, Megan, at the supermarket and learns that Megan is doing just fine, even though she has a lot of kids.

Megan explains the importance of collecting child support and Debbie decides to knock on Derek’s door, but finds out from his wife that he is dead.

Debbie tries to collect the death benefit for Franny, but discovers that nothing was left for her.  All is not lost; however, as Megan introduces Debbie to her lawyer, Patti, who seems up for the challenge.

Debbie has experienced the good life with her She Shed and it doesn’t look like she is going to let up here until she gets her money.  Just don’t forget about Franny’s future college fund…

“I know who I am.”

Liam begins to have his doubts about Mavar, even though he has been very welcoming to Liam.  After talking it over with Kev, Liam starts to wonder if Mavar is in a cult.

It looks like Liam’s quest to find himself has ended; now finally realizing that he knows who he is and he’s happy with it.

I guess you’re a Gallagher after all, Liam!  Welcome back!

2

“This is a safe space.”

Lip decides to join the safe space for new moms and the female members are extremely enthusiastic to have him join.  Lip starts to bond with his new friend more and more, learning that baby Freddy should be self-sufficient.

I think perhaps his new friend has a point, but I’m not sure baby Freddy or Lip are ready for swim lessons just yet.

There definitely seems to be a vibe here, but Tami walks in at the end of the episode to break up the party, along with Kelly, so both Lip and Carl may need to figure out where their hearts truly lie…

I have to say that I think Carl and Anne are adorable though!

“We’re the wish granters!”

Mikey reveals his dream about becoming a businessman and Frank decides to make his dream come true, although he takes quite a few shortcuts to make this happen.  Frank explains the importance of dressing for success and it seems like they are in for quite the adventure, but Mikey realizes at the end of the episode that he needs to go to prison so that he can get quality healthcare.

It looks like this is the end of our favorite partnership for now.  I have to say that this may be one of the only times I have ever seen Frank truly connect with someone.  He shows glimmers here and there that he can be caring, but his friendship with Mikey seemed to spark his potential for goodness.

Although, I have a feeling that Frank will return to his old ways as soon as drama comes knocking on his door and it looks like it is going to in the next episode.  Stay tuned!
