‘Shameless’ season 6, episode 5 preview: Frank ‘trains’ Debbie; more Helene drama

Shameless -Shameless” is doing something bold next week, and that is airing an all-new episode right after the Super Bowl! To be fair, this is also something that they’ve done many times in the past. It’s a way for them to capitalize on a relative lack of counter-programming, but they also realize that many of their subscribers have access to DVR machines and computers, and as a result of that they’ll be just fine in securing another way to watch.

As for what’s coming up on the show content-wise, the promo below makes it rather clear that Frank has a specific strategy in mind for Debbie. Not only that, but we’re going to continue to see quite a few interesting developments when it comes to Lip and Helene, otherwise known as a relationship more dysfunctional than we can possibly imagine.

Take a look at the TV Guide synopsis for this episode below in case you want some more details all about what to expect:

“Frank helps Erica through the cancer concierge process; Debbie ups her game as a shoulder for Tyler to lean on; Lip tries to protect Helene from the fallout of Amanda’s disclosure, but she refuses to see him anymore.”

It’s a little too hard to say what the overall ramifications of this episode will be, but the one thing we’re feeling fairly confident about at the moment is this: We’re probably looking at a very hilarious episode of TV coming up, and we certainly appreciate that.
