As we reported nearly two weeks ago, things have been a little weird in the love department for Debbie Gallagher. Notably, she’s never really made great choices. She has a pretty dark history that includes some of the following:

  • Raping
  • Tricking her boyfriend into getting her knocked up
  • Trying to sleep with her brother’s girlfriend
  • Pretending to be a lesbian

As if this list wasn’t bad enough, she kicked off a relationship with an older rich woman who originally believed she was a prostitute. Once she got settled in as the new, hot, and young girlfriend, she made things even worse by being intimate with her girlfriend’s underage daughter as well.

At the end of last week’s episode, it was confirmed that Debbie had at least performed certain intimate acts on her girlfriend’s child. In fact, her girlfriend’s daughter used what happened to blackmail Debbie into going to homecoming with her during tonight’s episode of Shameless.

Debbie attempts to juggle going on two dates at the same time.

During tonight’s episode of Shameless, we watch Debbie struggle to juggle two dates at the same time. Her girlfriend’s daughter blackmailed her into going to homecoming with her. Then, her girlfriend guilt trips her into coming to her birthday dinner. Unable to say no to either situation, Debbie sets things up so they have dinner at a restaurant extremely close to where the dance takes place. Then, she just spends the night running back and forth between the two dates.

Unfortunately, it didn’t take long for her girlfriend to notice what was going on and confront both Debbie and her daughter over at the dance.

Debbie ends up walking away while the mother and daughter are arguing with each other in a way that suggests this may not have been the first time it happened.

The were vibes between Gallagher and Sandy Milkovich early on in the episode.

Sandy has been appearing in the season more and more. She’s Mickey Mikovich’s cousin. She was called in to help Mickey with planning his wedding. During an earlier scene this season, she revealed that she used to fool around with Mickey. They, however, were both gay.

Viewers may have noticed some sparks when Sandy offered to help Debbie with her bow tie as she prepared for her double date with mommy and daughter. After the date, Debbie came home to grill how “crazy” rich people were with Sandy.


The scene came to an end with Debbie boldly asking Sandy if she wanted to go inside and “f*ck.” Sandy didn’t even hesitate to say yes before the duo raced inside.

Presently it is unclear if there is anything more than just a moment of passion between the two. It, however, goes without saying that it crosses yet another line for Debbie as she’s now getting in bed with her brother Ian’s boyfriend’s cousin.

What do you think of Debbie’s latest choice in bed mate? Is it just as bad as her mother and daughter situation? Or, is it worse? Sound off in the comments down below.
