Okay, just a theory i guess. But do you guys remember when Lip and Karen were walking down the street and they’re talking about some shit and then they see Mickey and his brothers go onto the side walk in front of them Lip asks her “what does he want?” and Karen replies w “Mickey probably wants to ask me out again.” and Lip said “not interested?” or some shit like that and Karen’s all like “Well if you like the smell of cow shit.”
Well I was thinking that why did Mickey look dirty through season 1, was it so that girls wouldn’t find him attractive or some shit and he didn’t want to reject any advances and fear his dad assuming he was gay? idk. And then after him and Ian started fucking around he looked cleaner and shit. idk, I just miss his presence on Shameless tbh.
