Patrick's plans to salsa into the sunset with his new love D'reen are scuppered when Mimi forces him to guarantee the financial security of the family with one last job - targeting the drug money of notorious psychopath, Roscoe.

Torn between a new life with D'reen and his family responsibilities, Patrick calls upon his sons for help.

At the Gallagher house Liam is suffocating under an avalanche of household debts and the fallout from trying to gamble his way out of trouble. Looked upon as a massive disappointment by Frank, and with no options left, he is driven to desperate measures.

Just when unity is needed, the Gallaghers come to blows. Meanwhile, Jamie is quite literally flat out trying to keep his family afloat while Karen is coming apart at the seams.
