“Shameless” U.S. season 4, episode 11: “Emily” airs tonight on Showtime.
In this week’s episode, Fiona is taken to a correctional facility while Frank wakes up in a daze after his surgery; Ian is irritated by the lack of commitment from Mickey, and gives him an ultimatum; Lip meets Amanda’s parents, who make him a surprising offer.
The series meets the fabulously dysfunctional Gallagher family. Dad’s a drunk, Mom split long ago, and eldest daughter Fiona tries to hold the family together. Eldest son Philip (Lip) trades his physics tutoring skills for sexual favors from neighborhood girls. Middle son Ian is gay. Youngest daughter Debbie is stealing money from her UNICEF collection. Ten-year-old Carl is a budding sociopath and an arsonist, and toddler Liam is – well, he might actually be Black, but nobody has a clue how.
The series stars William H. Macy, Emmy Rossum, Justin Chatwin, Ethan Cutkosky, Shanola Hampton, Steve Howey and Emma Kenney.
“Shameless” season 4, episode 11: “Emily,” airs March 30, at 9 p.m. on Showtime.
