If you you don’t want spoilers for the latest episode of Shameless, you’d better look away now because I AM BARELY HOLDING THIS IN.
While I’m loving this season of Shameless, everyone I know who watches has grown tired of something. The show needed a shakeup. And if you thought that was the role Monica’s reappearance was slated for, WE WERE WRONG.
Because then, in the last 45 seconds of the latest episode, this happened.
YESSSSSSSSS. As you might expect, Twitter had some feelings.

Me: my skin is clear, my troubles are gone, and I'm sleeping well tonight #MickeysEscape
can you believe the best part of the episode was mickey and he was just mentioned #MickeysEscape— meli (@mikhailomilkvch) November 28, 2016
Even Noel Fisher (Mickey himself) got in on the excitement.
Oh, poor Trevor.
Still, the Gallavich true believers will probably be willing to see Trevor go if it means getting back the only storyline that’s ever made post-mid-teens Ian sufferable. That is, if (as the AV Club notes here) Showtime hasn’t already burned that bridge by over-testing our patience.
