A Jailbird, Invalid, Martyr, Cutter, Retard, and Parasitic Twin

The Gallagher clan deals with some changing dynamics in the aftermath of Fiona's release from jail. With Fiona under court order to remain inside the house and Frank's illness keeping him out of commission, the weight of guardianship duties falls squarely on Lip's shoulders. Simultaneously struggling to keep up with responsibilities at school, he gets some unexpected assistance from Amanda, his roommate's girlfriend.
