Frank shows up with Etta’s medication and food, he is pretending to be her dead husband so he has a place to stay at night.
Lip is clocking out of the diner, he pours some vodka in to his coffee before he heads home. Sierra comes in to work and blows Lip off, she still isn’t speaking to him. Lip tries to apologize for beating up her baby-daddy.
Debbie heads to the Gallagher house to get cleaned up – Monica is still sitting on the porch and follows her inside. Debbie rants that she doesn’t have time for Monica’s drama, she needs to get her baby back. Monica is thrilled she’s a grandmother, and vows to get Frankie back.

Kevin is still sleeping on Fiona’s couch. He wants to make up with “V” but he doesn’t trust Svetlana. He sneaks over to talk to V while Svetlana is at work. Kevin wants them to go on the Steve Harvey show, or at least see a counselor. V heads to the bar and convinces Svetlana to go to counseling with them.

When she arrives, Trevor and Ian are already arguing with each other, Monica gets involved and Ian storms off and leaves Trevor with his mom.
