Throughout the 1st Season, 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?
As someone who has watched every episode of Shameless to date and have my DVR set for Sun, Jan 8 at 9PM ET/PT on Showtime to record the second season of Shameless (like I would miss the premier, but with a 2 1/2 year old daughter I record it as I watch it. I’m sure to have missed something.) I thought it would be fun to answer the questions myself. So here goes! It’s a nice thought, leaving with the man you are in love with and running off to Costa Rico, but would you leave your family behind? I know I sure wouldn’t. I would have done exactly what Fiona did. If you had three brothers and a sister that depended on you because your father was a good for nothing drunk would you run off and leave them to fend for themselves? I could not bare the thought of what would happen to them. Fiona is more like their Mom than their sister anyway. She is an amazing young lady.
