Look who has a new woman in his life! A few weeks after Xan went back with her mother, Lip is reunited with Tammy, the drunk bridesmaid he awkwardly hooked up with at Brad’s wedding. Well, their last meeting didn’t go so well, but she suddenly wants to take him up on his offer of a date. And their kind of date is apparently a very brief meal at a taco truck and hours of rated sex in a very small car.

The cast celebrated the airing of its 100th episode, titled "Do Right, Vote White!" on September 30. Episode 104, the first of the winter block, will air on Showtime on January 20 at 9 p.m., according to The Hollywood Reporter. The good news is, it keeps it's Sunday night slot, as always. So your Sundays will eventually return to normal — or as normal as Shameless allows. The bad news is, technically, fans have to wait until next year for more episodes, which will be missing the face of Ian Gallagher.

But all good things must end, and Monaghan announced earlier via Instagram that he would be leaving the series at mid-year, joining the previous announcement by castmate Emmy Rossum, who will leave at the end of the season.

Picking up weeks or months after Ian pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity, he’s spending his last day of freedom moving his stuff up to the attic and telling his siblings that he just wants a normal day — except for a family White Castle dinner. So the rest of the Gallaghers go about their business: Debbie heads to work; Lip has a gig as a sober companion; Carl is working out with new lady friend Kelly; and Frank takes Liam to wait for the release of mental patient Ingrid (Katey Sagal), whom Pops is carrying a flame for after their crazed run-in last week.

Another good thing about this particular ending is that it leaves Ian in the country if the show should ever need him for a one-off episode or he could be released for good behavior to allow Ian back into the fold for a series finale. He's gone from the day-to-day workings of the Gallaghers, but never forgotten.

Fan Buzz

Frank sleeping with all the rich mothers come on lazy and down right stupid writing him stealing from them perfect. Macy, Joan Cusack and Ms. The original was excellent just the way it was and I have no doubt that a huge portion of the American audience would enjoy seeing a real-to-life comedy drama rather than something which has been dumbed down to suit a broader audience. Ian and Mickey are finally together!!!!!! Love this show.

Critics Reviews

    Emmy Rossum, returning as Fiona Gallagher, wasn’t the most capable cast member during the show’s first season, but she quickly picked up steam and became an actor of significant power by the third season. But here she, like so much of the show, limps along, occasionally taking her shirt off, flirting or looking <...> - by PopMatters - Season 5 [Jedd Beaudoin]

    As usual, the Frank stuff is the weakest part of the episode, making us all wish that the writers had just cut their losses with the character last year and killed him off. There was even a glimmer of hope with his relative soberness and fun scenes with Sheila, but it was all undone immediately. I am really interested <...> - by TV Equals [Caroline Preece]

    Kev would totally be the kind of dad who would be in a "Mommy & Me" chat room, comparing notes and diagnosing his problems. Seeing him sleeping in bed with those two little girls was priceless.  It feels so good to be back in the Shameless atmosphere and I thought this was a decent season premiere. What did <...> - by TV Fanatic [Whitney Evans]

    Regardless, this was yet another strong season introduction with the show taking on a lighter, more comedic tone than its predecessor, which fits with the summer mood. However, I never trust the show when it allows its characters to be happier for longer than three minutes and we already see hints of them unraveling. <...> - by The Young Folks [Allyson Johnson]

    Andrew Hung has always had a way with forging his own path. After all, his main band is called Fuck Buttons, and if you can't handle the name, you probably can't handle the progressive, forward-thinking drone and beat-driven noise music contained within. She’s the object of affection from Sean Pierce (the usually <...> - by PopMatters [Jedd Beaudoin]
