Fiona (Emmy Rossum) is starting to have doubts on whether or not it’s still a good idea to be a small business ower when problems arise with the laundry mat. First the machines start to go, then a level four gas leak, and plumbing problem that drives Fiona to take money from the diner. But when Fiona asks for advice from her boss on what to do, she’s told that she’ll never make it, and might as well continue working as an employee under an employer. For a few moments it did seem like Fiona was going to give up the dream, going so far as telling the plumber to take his concerns to Etta (June Squibb), and ripping up the check. But that despair was short lived and Fiona writes a new check, and goes to the bank to transfer the funds to Etta’s account.
While Fiona finding out that running her own business was going to costs loads of money wasn’t a surprise. What was though, is when Svetlana (Isidora Gorshter) reveals now then Kev (Steve Howey), and V (Shanola Hampton) know about Yvan being her husband, they can get rid of him. Turns out Svetlana couldn’t say anything before was because Yvan threatened to cut off every other finger on all of their hands. But while Kev, and V freak out over Yvan at home, Svetlana talks matters into her own hands. Returning to the bar bloodly, Svetlana lets everyone know that Yvan is gone, and is no longer in their lives. But whether that means his dead or alive, nobody knows.
Things seem to be going well for Lip (Jeremy Allen White) too. His and Sierra’s relationship is starting to turn into something a little more serious, even though both claim to want fun, and light. Not only that, but Lip may also have another chance of going back to college, thanks to his professor getting him a meeting with the board, who is willing to exsponge his criminal act.
It’s Liam’s first day of elementary school, but due to the neighbourhood rising, his public school was closed down, and the nearest one is over 30 minutes away. The only school close enough is a newly built, 27K a year private school. Advocating outside the school, Frank (William H. Macy) managed to grab the attention of the school leader, and the two share battle wounds from abusive teachers from their past. And when all is said and down, Liam is offered full funding into the school.
Debbie (Emma Kenedy) I think is on the verge of some very dangerous territory. With the stress of maybe having her child taken away, Debbie is taking over Nate’s apartment, by kicking Lucas out of his room for Frannie, and demanding Fiona drop what she’s doing to witness (and approve) her marriage at the courthouse. After her stunt with the homeless woman, Debbie is forced to take parenting class, and see no fault in her actions. While giving Nate his nightly bath, Nate tries to reassure Debbie that all will be fine, and Debbie is inclined to believe him, because due to his brain injury he can not lie. But she can. When Nate says, “I love you Debbie” she shares her similar feeling, but with Debbie, her love seems more like obsession, not real. And the chances of her really loving Nate are slim considering she’s only with him for support for her daughter.
Ian (Cameron Monaghan) and Trevor (Elliot Fletcher) take things to a whole new level in their relationship. Trying to figure out who’s the top, and who’s the bottom. The two are at a constant (friendly) battle trying to convince the other to play recipicate, when they finally agree that both will share the experience. But who first? With the flip of a coin, and choosing heads, Ian loses. Or did he? When the nights over, both seemed rare pleased with the nights transgressions, that their might be fewer coin flipping in the future, and more volunteering, from both men.
