"Summer in Chicago takes things in a positive direction for the Gallaghers," Shameless star Emmy Rossum (Fiona) says. She becomes a waitress, her sister starts a daycare center in their house, and one brother is "running a marijuana business out of an ice-cream truck."
As for patriarch Frank (William H. Macy), he's still unemployed. Agoraphobe Sheila makes it 300 feet out of the house, adds Rossum. "Every step she takes is one step closer to her realizing what a disaster Frank is."
