Shameless Cascading Failures
27 February 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The drama was equalled this week after the social worker came to the house and once again Emmy Rossum is showing her true dramatic talents on the show. Seeing the different households the kids went to was nice but I wish they were all together and still it's sad this kids could still be split up. The moment Fiona found out Frank was responsible for the call was a very good drama to the moment especially her mix of a smile and anger as she figured out her next move. The most disgusting thing to watch in the episode once again was seeing Veronica, Kevin and her mother having three way sex was one of the hardest things to watch in the whole episode. This was the best Shelia has been all season but I wish they had gotten rid of her when Karen left. The relationship of Ian and his lover got quite tense when they were beaten up in blood as the gay was to be sexed out. Overall a very good episode even with the awkward scenes of Veronica and her whole household.

EPISODE GRADE: B- (MVP: Emmy Rossum)
