#Shameless starts now. Gus finds Fiona on the fire escape and asks what she’s doing. He asks if she’s worried about Ian and says he’ll be out in a few days. He kisses her and she says she has to tell him something. She says she slept with her ex. He asks recently since they’ve been married and she says it was yesterday. He’s upset and says they had sex yesterday too. She just looks ashamed. He goes back inside. She stays out in the cold drinking her coffee.
On the psych ward, the orderly wakes the guys and hands out meds. Ian asks where he is and they tell him it’s Cook County psych ward. They tell him it’s the sedation and tell him it will wear off. He asks for his real clothes and the orderly says they’re in storage and he’s there for 72 hours. A guy pounds on Lip’s door because he’s locked out. He goes to the door and Lip asks why the guy is naked and locked out again. He says it’s the third time in a day. He tells the guy to tie a key to his dick.
Lip goes back to his room and can’t find his class schedule. Carl gets dressed and keeps changing outfits. He says third time’s the charm for 6th grade. He finds Chuckie taking a massive crap and tells him to shut the door then sprays the place down with Lysol. Sammi is making breakfast when Debbie calls to see when she can visit Ian. She says she has to be 16 to get in. Sammi says he’ll be fine. Carl says Chuckie is making hot sloppy upstairs.
Sammi says he’s nervous about school. She tells Debbie less lip liner and Carl says he’s trying to get out of the friend zone with Derek. Sammi asks Carl for a favor and asks if he’ll protect him. Carl asks for condoms and nun chucks. She agrees. Frank shows up and says he was in the hospital and says he was sabotaged but is an adult and doesn’t need anyone or anything again.

She says she needs space and he says she moved in with the milk maids. She says she needs space and Kevin says the girls can’t take care of themselves.
He blows up and leaves after breaking a box of her stuff. Fiona is wearing one of Gus’s shirt. He cooks her some food and says he cooks when he’s nervous. She says she’s not very hungry then tells him sorry. He says he thought they’d at least make it a year before this. He says if they were dating he would just walk away. He asks why she did it and she says it just happened – she says they were unfinished. Gus asks if they still are.
He takes the tray of food away when she doesn’t answer. Gus says he wants to meet Jimmy-Steve and she asks why. He says he wants to talk and sort things out so his brain isn’t just filling in blanks. She agrees. At the psych ward, Ian says he needs to get home and isn’t supposed to be there. Ian goes fro the door. The guard stands up and tells him to get back in line. He asks if he wants to be sedated. He says he needs to see Fiona and Mickey and Yevi.
Ian comes at him and he pushes him against the wall. He tells him to go get back in line and eat French Toast. Lip finds a huge line at the Registrar. He asks if they’re all in line because their schedules got f-d. They all nod yes. Mickey asks Svetlana what she’s doing. She says she’s packing Ian’s stuff and says he can’t stay there anymore.

She asks if they’re broken up but Kevin says he doesn’t think so then asks what she thinks. Kevin says he doesn’t know and Carol says she should have f-d some sense back into her. Kevin says the issue is that she’s not into their kids. She says seeing someone be a good parent does make you want to get busy.
Carol says she’ll talk to Veronica after work. She takes Dominic and leaves. Derek and Debbie listen to music in his car at school. She waits for him to open her door but he doesn’t and he heads off with his boys. He at least introduces them to Debbie but then gives her a guy-like punch on the arm. Sammi is vacuuming while Frank sleeps. She says they can start over if they both apologize. She tells him she’s sorry she withheld his meds and says she’s the only one who cares about him.
She tells him it’s his turn to apologize. She sticks the vacuum to his head, turns it on and walks away. Chuckie freaks when Carl starts to leave him. He tells Chuckie to go push a big kid. He does and the kid knocks him down. Then Carl says if he picks on him again, he’ll bit his nuts off. He tells them to spread the word. Carl tells Chuckie he’s his slave now and Chuckie says cool.

Ian asks if he can go home and she says in a couple of days. Mickey hugs him too. Ian seems detached and strange. They take him over and sit him down. Fiona asks how he’s doing. He can barely understand her and is distracted by the ping pong game behind her. He keeps looking past them at things. She tells Ian she got married. All he can hear is the TV and checkers game.

He grabs her and kisses her and says he likes her too. She says she’ll see him tomorrow then kisses him and runs inside.
Ian is getting an evaluation. He says he’s better and not so foggy then asks to leave. He says his family thinks he has what his mother does – bipolar. She asks if he’s bipolar and then asks how he knows his mother was. He says his mom tried to kill herself then went on a shopping spree then left him on the street corner while she bought drugs. The doc asks if he’s done anything like that. She says the police report said he stole his lover’s baby. He says the police tried to steal them.
She says he ran into a grocery store and a witness said he left him in a car for 20 minutes. The doctor says he shows signs of bipolar disorder.

She tells him to get out or she’ll shoot him. Frank says to go ahead and says she doesn’t have the guts. He laughs at her and says he’s not a real Gallagher.
She shoots and it hits his arm. She says she wants him to tell her that she needs them. He says even she isn’t that crazy. She pours salt on the wound and then he says he needs her. She says she knew he did then says she’s here for him. She says she’s taking him to the hospital and tells Chuckie not to worry. Lip and Debbie are in utter shock. Fiona meets Gus at the pie shop and he asks about Ian. She says it was hard on his BF and he remember shis name is Mickey. They kiss and then she sees that Steve is inside.
They go in and Gus says they just nee dot have a chat. Steve hugs her warmly and then Gus punches Steve in the face hard. Steve says – nice to meet you. Gus walks out and says he didn’t plan to punch him but then he saw the smug look on the guy’s face. He says he has to go ice his hand because he has a gig tomorrow. He tells Fiona she deserves better than Steve but says she’s probably biased. She looks back in at Steve.
Veronica goes upstairs to her place over the bar and turns on a lamp. She drinks a beer and checks her phone. She sees the guy sent her a naked selfie back. Mickey comes home and looks around but no one is around. There’s no one in the house. He falls down drunk and then pulls Ian’s Army jacket over his face.

She tells him he has to let her go and let her let him go. She says she needs him to do that. She’s crying. Steve goes to kiss her but she turns her face away. He looks at her then walks away. He tells her to take care of herself and she says the same. He gets on his motorcycle and drives away.
Lip goes to rent a mailbox so this never happens to him again. Ian paces in his room and touches the wall. The other lunatics watch him. Fiona walks by and Steve’s partner in crime pulls up. Fiona says she just missed Steve but she says she was looking for Fiona to tell her she’s sorry she spied on her for Steve. She tells Fiona that the client canceled the Dubai trip. She says Jack is a good thief but a shitty liar. Fiona wonders at this third name for Jimmy/Steve/Jack. The woman says she hopes she sees Fiona again.
