Shameless Season 9 Episode 1
Are You There, Shim? It's Me, Ian
Fiona tries to find the money to get Ian out of jail, and to do that, she needs to get an appraisal on her building to prove to the bank she has the collateral.
After being approved, Ford worries that Fiona is making a mistake by giving the money to Ian's bail fund because Ian is unpredictable and could run off.
Fiona worries, even more, when Ian informs her that he's working for "the Shim" now. But Fiona says that she wants to support her brother.
Fiona also worries because Ford has two cell phones. When confronted, he says that he has an international phone for contacting his mother.
Meanwhile, Debbie continues to try and get equality in the workplace and finds herself wearing a diaper after learning that her male co-workers are being paid more than her.
Also, Carl struggles with Kassidi being so overbearing, and one of his cadets kills her.
Lip still has Xan in his care, and realizes that dating is not going to be easy.
