Carla from Denkiphile: "Having established last episode that Kevin’s ex is a crazy B, “The Helpful Gallaghers” got back to focusing on those magnanimous Gallaghers; of course, by that I mean we got back to dealing with Gallagher insanity rather than supporting character insanity. It was back to focusing on Fiona and Lip for the most part, with minor threads involving Carl’s “cancer” and Jodie and Shelia’s relationship. Oh, and did I forget to mention that Jimmy found out his father is gay? Yeah. That happened."
