This article contains spoilers for season 10, episode 2.
Ian Gallagher's reunion with his on and off love, Mickey Milkovich might have been hit by the tumultuous waves of trouble in prison paradise, but that's not what has fans buzzing. After returning from a Gallavich drought that panned out over seasons, the couple warmed fans' hearts with their hilarious bickering and unmissable banter, giving us a taste of what we have been missing out on. And even as Ian and Mickey are desperate for spending a day or two in solitary after growing beyond tired with each other's constant nagging presence, all fans can think about is how great the two are together.
In episode 2 of the ongoing season 10, we finally get a glimpse of what life's been like for Ian and Mickey, who were reunited in prison towards the mid-season finale of season 9, that aired back in January this year. The two have been sharing a prison cell with limited resources for months now, and as expected, things did get unpleasant and rocky with the two annoying each other with their respective little tidbits. For Mickey, it is Ian using prison mayo as lube every time they have intercourse, and at other times, it's his very elaborate and loud flossing regime. For Ian, it is Mickey's toilet habits and this thing he does with a click-pen - the sound of which annoys Ian like nothing else.
Things escalate to such great heights that Ian ends up suggesting he stab a fellow inmate so he could get sent to solitary, thus giving the couple a much-needed break from each other. But for Mickey, that sounds like Ian is dumping him, and he can't ever let that happen because only Mickey can dump Ian, it doesn't go the other way round. But as the two of them wrack their brains to find the most fitting solution for their ever-burning problem, all fans care about is them sharing screen time as a real couple.
Taking to Twitter, a fan offered some solution for the two, sharing: "Maybe Mickey shouldn’t have picked where he would get book into prison but I’m happy he did because I missed gallavich." At the same time, the user is also agitated by Ian's audacity to want a break right when fans got to see them back together after years of begging for this reunion. They wrote: "very upset ian wants a new roommate. WE JUST GOT MICKEY PLUS GALLAVICH BACK DONT RUIN THIS FOR US!" A third fan was only praises and cheers for the reunion and noting what a huge milestone this was for the season, they shared: "IAN AND MICKEY ARE BACK ON SHAMELESS. All my dreams for this season came true.. and we only on episode 2!"
'Shameless' season 10 airs on Sundays at 9 pm only on Showtime.
