Shameless “El Gran Canon” Season 3 premiere airs Sunday January 13 2013 at 9 pm on Showtime.
Episode Synopsis: It’s almost Easter. 137 days have passed since we’ve last seen the Gallagher’s. Jimmy has moved into the Gallagher house. Frank is missing. Debbie’s worried about him. Everything is status quo, except for the mystery Town Car parked out front.
Fiona struggles to accept the new ‘boring’ Jimmy. She loses her job doing biohazard cleanup and looks into her options with a GED. Not many. She goes to see Meg who offers her the chance to promote her own club night. Fiona accepts and puts the family a thousand dollars in the hole.
Frank enlists the help of Mexican coyotes and drug smugglers in order to cross the border. Nando kidnaps Jimmy, making him promise to take proper care of his daughter, Estefania. Lip is sentenced to community service after stealing a laser for a robotics contest. Baby Hymie causes Jody and Sheila extreme exhaustion. Kev and Veronica attempt to boost their web traffic by creating ‘master and slave’ porn.
Show Summary: SHAMELESS – Oscar®-nominated William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum star in this fiercely engaging and fearlessly twisted new series. Chicagoan Frank Gallagher is the proud single dad of six smart, industrious, independent kids, who without him would be… perhaps better off. When Frank’s not at the bar spending what little money they have, he’s passed out on the floor. But the kids have found ways to grow up in spite of him. They may not be like any family you know, but they make no apologies for being exactly who they are.
