In tonight’s episode of Shameless, “Where There’s a Will,” Fiona and the gang will fight their Uncle Patrick to keep living in their (or Aunt Ginger’s) house.
The Gallaghers just survived one of the biggest hurdles thus far in the history of the show but they’re in for an even bigger hardship now that their Uncle Patrick holds the key to their livelihood, literally and legally. The sham Fiona and the family put together to pass off the stolen corpse from the morgue as Aunt Ginger backfired, because now Uncle Patrick knows for sure that someone else is trying to make a move on the house. Since he had Aunt Ginger’s will notarized a year ago and left himself the house, he is the legal owner and can do whatever he likes with it, and something tells me he wont be letting Fiona and the kids live there.
Since he’s still a Gallagher, he’ll be slippery and deceitful to deal with and damn near impossible to reason with, but not completely impossible. It may not be easy to do, but the family–and particularly Lip–will find a way to outsmart him and get ownership of the house.
