A Long Way From Home

Knowing that Frank is the real source of her problems, Fiona makes a bold decision regarding her future with the kids. All she needs is a full-time job and a house, so she and Lip set out to forge Aunt Ginger's will and to find a dead body to go with it. Debbie and Carl continue to deal with their foster homes. Frank prepares for his court appearance by getting sober. Timmy Wong and his mother arrive at Sheila's to take Hymie.

Episode Recaps

From The A.V. Club:
Since this season of Shameless began, I've been wondering if and when Monica would saunter back in to throw the Gallaghers into a state of disarray as only she can.
