In the ninth season of "Shameless," Fiona (Emmy Rossum) and Ford's (Richard Flood) marriage is on the rocks because of trust issues and not being on the same page regarding their finances. Ian (Cameron Monaghan) is in jail but refuses to be bailed out because he believes he has a mission to fulfill while incarcerated. Lip (Jeremy Allen White) tries hard to stay sober while finding a balance with his responsibilities, particularly with taking care of Xan (Scarlet Spencer). Carl (Ethan Cutkosky) heads to military school, but Kassidi's (Sammi Hanratty) presence at the school holds him back. Debbie (Emma Kenney) pushes for equal wage at work when she discovers she is earning less for taking longer bathroom breaks. Kevin (Steve Howey) and Veronica (Shanola Hampton) tire themselves out with parenting their twins. Meanwhile, Gallagher patriarch Frank (William H. Macy) spreads STDs to three mothers at Liam's (Christian Isaiah) school, which gets Liam in trouble.
