    9 seasons already?
    e1 & e2 have aired.
    No indication that bitcoin miners (from S8) will be shown this season.
    Carl's crazy 'girlfriend' problem solved? (I hope not!)
    Ian's story, IMO is the weakest.
    Good to see Liam as the moral compass of the Gallaghers.
    I still like Frank :)

    So is Ian off the show now? I heard he was leaving and his prison stint is a good excuse for his absence. Hated his storyline the last couple of seasons...

    Well it’s been publicly announced another major character is leaving and unless Carl fails West Point he should going as well. How long will Debbie/Emma want/can do both shows.

    They even hinted in the last episode when Frank talked to Liam about the rest of the brood flying the coop. Either the show is setting up an end game or as I think maybe they want to switch the Shameless family with a possible Katey Sagal shameless family.

    Ya, I have seen the news about Fiona leaving after this season but not Ian until just recently. I can’t see the show continuing without Fiona since she is the glue that keeps the family holding together albeit by a thread.

    True, but they sure are painting 'Lip in that role now.

    And I agree, my favorite character right now, or duo, Liam and Frank.

    Am I missing something? I remember Ian pled not guilty by reason of insanity but as far as I know there has been no trial yet. So why is he going back to jail? Flight risk?

    Yeah, I was confused by that too. We went from a not-guilty plea last week to him going to prison for two years this week. Based on all the other storylines this week, it's not like they just skipped a trial either.

    They treated it as if an Insanity plea was the same as pleading guilty to a lesser crime for a reduced sentence.

    Honestly I was just happy to see Ian’s story go away...

    With you. Also V and Kevin. Also sober Lip. I think this show has gotten stale.

    Tonights midseason finale episode has some fun moments. Still by dropping most of the nudity they have dropped a lot of the wow moments the nudity was enclosed in.

    This season has a total of 14 episodes, but they're being split into two runs of 7 episodes each. Tonight is the final episode of the first 7.

    After tonight, the show will be off the air until January 20.

    Actually - if you think about - almost all of Fiona's storyline is separate from the rest of the family - she only shows up with the rest of them occasionally, so - I can totally see them just carrying on with out her...

    Earlier in the episode, I found myself wondering what ever happened to Mickey (?) - when he showed up as Ian's cell mate, I think I gasped out loud.

    Oh - P.S. What the heck did Courtney Cox do to her face?

    My memory needs a little jogging. I remember Carl did not get in the Academy. In the recap, the major's daughter says she found a loophole to get in. Anyone remember what that loophole is?

    Pretty anti-climatic send off for Fiona. I was hoping she’d run off with Jimmy-Steve. Instead a flight to destination unknown.

    Good to see Ian again.

    And leaving half of her money to the family?

    I don't remember that. I do remember her saying he could do OTS which I presume is Officer Training School.
