Throughout the 1st Season of Shameless, we see a lot of hardship but it usually ends with a twist of humor and close family ties. At the end of Season 1, we find Steve trying to convince Fiona, the oldest daughter, to skip town with him to the warm and beautiful/care-free Costa Rica. This kind of lifestyle would surely be a great change for Fiona, but after initially deciding to go with Steve, she changes her mind and stays with the hard yet humorous, family-oriented life.
If you were in her situation, what would you do? Would you leave your ‘no collar’ Shameless life but abandon your family to start anew? Or would you let your love and a chance at renewal slip away?
If I was Fiona, I’d probably get so far as leaving en route to Costa Rica before being pulled back to my family. That’s the thing with Fiona- no matter how hard things get, or how bad things seem, the family ties are the ones that bind her. She loves her family, for good and for bad, and I think she’s ultimately the “glue’ of the family.
Of course if I was Fiona, I’d have to go back, or never leave at all, or else this comedy would probably fall apart!!
Shameless: Season 2 airs on Sundays 9PM ET/PT on Showtime.
