Here’s a tweet from Cameron Monaghan, who plays Ian on Shameless, about Noel Fisher, who plays (played?) his boyfriend Mickey on the series:
5 years we were at this @noel_fisher. It has been a pleasure developing these characters, their relationship & story. You're the man. Best.— Cameron Monaghan (@CameronMonaghan) April 6, 2015
What? WHAT? Does that mean what I think it means? IS THAT A GOODBYE? FOREVER?
Last we saw Mickey, after all, Ian had broken his heart, and he was being chased by a gun-wielding Sammi, who was shooting in his direction. That plotline kind of has been exhausted, too: It came to a natural (if not upsetting) conclusion, but I hate to think that it’s really the end, especially for the character on the show who has grown the most, and opened the most eyes.
If that means what it sounds like it means, that’s a sucker punch.
