Tonight on Showtime their fiercely engaging and fearlessly twisted series SHAMELESS airs with a new episode called, “My Oldest Daughter.” On tonight’s episode Lip seems to have lost his mojo as he struggles in school and with the ladies. Did you watch last week’s premiere episode? We did and we recapped it right here.
On last week’s show as we caught up with the Gallagher clan, Fiona is dividing her time between caring for the household and working at Worldwide Cup with her boss/boyfriend Mike Pratt. While her job and relationship are going smoothly, life at home is thrown into a state of upheaval with the reappearance of a drug-addled and deathly ill Frank. With Lip off at college and Ian still missing, Fiona attempts to connect with Debbie and Carl, who are dealing with the upheaval of their adolescent hormones (or lack thereof).
On tonight’s show Fiona begins to enjoy the perks of living life just above the poverty line. She uses her newly activated health benefits to take the kids for checkups. However, when a road rage incident damages the company car, Fiona tells a much bigger lie about how it happened. Meanwhile, Lip seems to have lost his mojo as he struggles in school and with the ladies.
