Helene (Sasha Alexander) and Lip’s (Jeremy Allen White) affair finally caught up with them in the previously aired Season 6 Episode 5 of “Shameless” and in “NSFW” they will be seen facing the consequences of their actions. Meanwhile, Fiona (Emmy Rossum) will seek the help of her estranged and spiteful husband Gus (Steve Kazee) to buy her house back.
As viewers of “Shameless” already know, Helene and Lip have been having a pretty steamy affair that transcends just lust, for quite a few episodes now. And, thanks to Lip’s vindictive ex-lover Amanda (Nichole Bloom), their affair was exposed to the whole college, with one naked photo of Helene lying with post-coitus glow in her student/lover’s room.
In “NSFW,” fans will see Lip and Helene facing a university committee, which will dole out the judgement for their actions. While Helene is seen accepting that she was wrong in the promo for Season 6 Episode 6, Lip acts out at the meeting, and declares that they are in love.
It is unlikely that Helene will second his declaration, considering she is seen telling the council that she slept with Lip because her marriage was on the rocks. Moreover, when the committee suggests that along with her suspension she meet with a therapist, Helene agrees that she has had physical relations with other students and that she would be addressing her sex addiction issues with a professional.
Meanwhile, Fiona is seen grappling to buy her house back, and will be seeking help from her ex-husband, who had recently insulted her by performing a song called “The F word” in front of a huge crowd. Gus is clearly playing her, and is seen pouring coffee over some important documents in the promo for “NSFW.”
