Tonight’s episode of Shameless kicks off with Ian waking up in bed with Trevor, his new transgender friend. They have been fooling around for a few weeks now, but haven’t gone all the way because both of them are “tops.”
Meanwhile downstairs in the kitchen, Fiona is getting Liam ready for his first day of Kindergarten. She packs his lunch and they head out the door – Liam whines because he wants to walk himself to school. Fiona lets him walk the last two blocks by himself, and orders him to go straight to school.
At Neil’s house, Debbie is running around like a chicken with her head cut off. She is trying to baby-roof the apartment before the woman from social services arrives.

Liam arrives at school, but he’s late and the doors are all locked. There is a sign on the door stating that the school is no longer open, and students in the neighborhood are being bussed to a different school.
