Fiona prepares herself for her court hearing, having decided to attempt to get full custody of the Gallagher children. To better her chances, Fiona, Lip and Ian forge a will in which Aunt Ginger leaves them the house. She gets help from Veronica in getting a deceased body of a elderly woman to pose as the recently passed away Ginger. Meanwhile Frank tries to clean up his antics. Jimmy deals with the sudden visitation by immigration and has sex with Estefania again. Sheila gets visited at her home by the biological teenage father of baby Hymie and his mother, who Sheila decides to give Hymie to. Shortly after, Karen returns home. Debbie runs away from her foster home after having to do illegal manual labor along with the other children there. Ian is avoided by Mickey after they were caught having sex by Mickey's father and having been beaten up as a result. Fiona finally faces Frank in court; the judge continues Frank's parental rights but declares Fiona the other legal guardian of the Gallagher children. Lip tries to file the forged will from Aunt Ginger for the house while in court, but finds out that a family relative by the name of Patrick filed an (equally forged) will earlier that supersedes theirs.
