After a drunken night Fiona wakes up to find not only that she has slept with unpopular Joey Dawson but that Liam has eaten an unknown quantity of Fiona's birth control tablets. As a consequence the family is visited by social worker Katrina Webb,an old school adversary of Fiona's,who is also engaged to Joey. When she hears that Joey slept with Fiona she makes it her business to have Liam taken into care,which involves Sheila pretending to be Monica and,amazingly,Frank saving the situation. Ian is off the hook with the Maguires but a comparison of family blood groups show he is not Frank's son. Written by don @ minifie-1

Did You Know?


The blood groups cited by Debbie do not automatically mean that Frank cannot be Ian's father. She only talks about the siblings, which are AB (Fiona and Liam), A (Carl), AB positive (Debbie), 0 (Ian) and B pos (Lip). The genes for blood groups A and B are co-dominant and 0 is recessive. So if one parent had the A and 0 genes, he or she would have blood group A. If the other had the B and 0 genes, he or she would have blood group B. Either can pass on either one of these genes to each child. So genetically, the children can be A0, B0, AB or 00 and their blood groups would be A, B, AB or 0. The only way Frank could definitely be excluded as Ian's father through blood groups would be if one of the parents had blood group A or B and the other one had AB, but we never learn Frank's or Monica's blood group.

Shameless: Series 2 Episode 7 = top!
3 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

This is a great episode. It starts with a ladies night in the jock, not that there were many ladies in the Jockey for the night, but Fiona notices somebody who she fancies, but wakes up the next morning with a surprise when she sees who's lying next to her. Also Ian realises that he has a different blood group to the rest of the family which means his father may not be who he think it is. Also the Gallagher's get a visit from the social services after Liam has an accident. There are hugely funny scenes in this episode especially the fantastically funny speech from Frank Gallagher (David Threlfall) at the end of the show about Fiona loving here youngest brother Liam. This is a fantastic episode from a fantastic show and i am one of many fans who like this show. This show is one of the most liked shows in the area where i live as the show represents the antics and the lifestyle of the local people, although the Shameless characters take every situation to the extreme and i find it interesting to watch as people who i see as regular doing crazy and wild things.
