SHAMELESS 308 – “Where There’s a Will” Episode Description
Emma Kenney as "Debs" has been such a big piece of the heart, excellence & essence of this show's third season. "Shameless, The "American version" of the long-running British show of the same name is on it's own merits, an unqualified hit.
Emmy Rossum as Fiona Gallagher, de facto mom to her sibling brood, is still phenomenal--most everyone in the cast is. Even Liam (Brenden Sims & Brandon Sims) is getting some good lines this season!
The family gathers for real Aunt Ginger’s fake funeral where they meet Frank’s cousin Patrick. Patrick also forged a will, and since his is dated more recently than theirs, the house is going to him. The family conspires to challenge the will and to get rid of Patrick.
After a failed clean-up gig, Jimmy finds a new job at the Coffee Beanery. He runs into an old friend from med school, Andy, and he begins to wonder what he’s doing with his life.
Meanwhile, Fiona and Lip look for a new house. Not wanting to move, Carl poisons cousin Patrick. Patrick lives and the Gallagher’s lose their battle for the house. Source: Showtime
When Tony arrives with an eviction notice, Debbie falsely accuses Patrick of touching her in her ‘nice places’. Patrick bargains with Fiona. For a small fee, the Gallagher’s can rent the house from him and continue to live there.
This was very funny and I really like the idea of calling our 'naughty bits' our 'nice places.' Empowering and funny!
With Hymie gone, Sheila no longer needs Frank as a nanny and Frank needs a new place to stay. Luckily, he meets creepy, vulnerable Christopher at his AA meeting. Sheila becomes an advocate of the word ‘retard’ and learns that Karen was the one that called the Wong’s. Kev and Carol continue to get busy with the hopes of making a baby.
