Shameless Round Table: Will Fiona Keep Her Baby?

at .

Will the Gallaghers ever get a moment of quiet in their lives?

On Shameless Season 6 Episode 2, Debbie continued to rebel against Fiona about the baby, but Fiona got some news of her own when she found Sean was using drugs again, and the shocks kept coming for her when she learned that she is pregnant.

Below, TV Fanatics Stacy Glanzman and Whitney Evans are joined by super fan, Amy Perrin. Join in as they discuss Fiona's pregnancy, Sean's addiction and Lip's cougar storyline. 

Fiona is also pregnant. React!

Stacy: It was a surprise, and it will be interesting to see how that will play out. I'm curious to see Debbie's reaction to the news.

Amy: That definitely came as quite a surprise. After all her texts to Debbie about getting an abortion, I wonder if she will decide to do that her own self. I am very interested to see how this is going to play out.

Whitney: I think I was more surprised it took this long for Fiona to get pregnant! I'm really curious to see what she decides to do. She's been a mother practically her whole life, but she's gotten to live her life more that the kids have grown up and she seems to be enjoying it.

Would Lip really kill Helene's husband?

Stacy: Lip has done some questionable and immoral things in his life, but nothing close to killing someone. I can't see him being willing to risk his future for this woman. He's too smart for that.

Amy: Even though he is smitten with Helene I seriously doubt that he will murder Helene's husband. If Lip was smart he would break up with her, and just stick to college girls. Helene is bad news.

Whitney: Lip is many things, but he's not a murderer. I'm honestly over Helene and I hope her time on the show comes to end sooner than later.

Will Sean be able to stay clean?

Stacy: I think so. He knows he has a problem and owns up to it. He also goes to meetings and seeks out help. Relapse is a part of recovery. He's not perfect, but he's working really hard to stay clean, and I think he will succeed. The important thing is he's not lying about it or trying to hide it.

Amy: When it comes to addiction it is so hard to say. I know that Sean wants to, but addiction is a disease, and he will be fighting the urge to stay clean every day for the rest of his life. It is a good sign that he was honest with Fiona and told her about relapsing, as well as going to a bunch of meetings. 

Whitney: I hope so, but you just never know. Like Amy said, addiction is a disease that you have to fight every single day, so time will tell if he's up for the fight.

Will Debbie change her mind after learning that Derek was the one who wanted out of town?

Stacy: I think that's a big part of it, but also hearing from the other girls trying to go to school with babies, as well as leaving the flour on the bus are all huge wake up calls for her. She's going to realize she does not want to be a teenage mother as much as she thought she did.

Amy: Based on the ending of this episode it sure doesn't look like it. She seems very determined to have this baby, and also have a family with Derek. If she sees Derek and he outright rejects her and the baby then I think that might change her mind, but I honestly don't think anything else will. 

Whitney: I think she's pretty set on keeping the baby, but the Derek bombshell could really crush her spirits.

How long before Carl is back in juvie?

Stacy: I think he'll be caught before the end of the season. Whether he ends up back in juvie or manages a way out of it, I don't know. He really needs to figure his life out or he's just going to be in and out of jail for the rest of it.

Amy: Probably not too long, and I agree with Stacy that he will most likely be caught before the end of the season. Carl is smart, and it's a shame that he cannot channel it in a constructive way. 

Whitney: Any day now. His storyline is just not that compelling to me, sorry. Carl has never been my favorite, but he's downright awful this season.
