'Shameless' Season 4 Episode 11 Spoilers: Can Mickey and Ian work together or will one of them end up in jail?
Mickey Milkovich (Noel Fisher) and Ian Gallagher (Cameron Monaghan) may be one of TV's favorite couples right now, but to say that they have somewhat of a contentious relationship is an understatement. Despite the fact that they literally risked their lives to get married to each other, the pair seem to always be about a hair's breadth away from breaking out into a fight. One of the sour points between the couple is finding a legal way to make money and pay the bills — something that Ian has, up to this point, been on top of, but it now appears that Mickey's come out ahead.
Last episode saw a reversal of fortunes between the two characters, as Ian quit his soul-sucking warehouse job for the sake of his dignity, and Mickey got himself hired by Kev Ball (Steve Howey) and Veronica Fisher (Shanola Hampton) to keep their weed money safe on the way to the bank. While doing security for drug dealers might seem like a typically shady Milkovich job, the fact that weed is newly legal in Chicago means that Mickey's the one with legal employment, leaving Ian in the lurch.
In the next episode of 'Shameless' Season 11, Mickey pulls Ian into the security gig, which is probably not the best idea he's had. Being married and sharing financial woes is one kind of stress, and working together is another. Mixing the two stresses is a recipe for disaster, but though Mickey's always had a lot of love in his heart, he's not known for making the best decisions.
The official synopsis for this episode titled 'NIMBY' reads: "The Milkoviches move in next door and wreak havoc, leading Frank, Kev and Liam to scheme to get rid of them; Mickey embarks on a security gig for Kev and V and drags Ian along; Gemma and Franny compete in the Little Miss South Side beauty pageant." You can watch a trailer for the episode below, which features the first look of Ian and Mickey in their new gear, ready for action.
This episode of 'Shameless' releases on January 10 at 9 pm ET on Showtime, as well as earlier on the Showtime app.
