Shameless clip that had me tearing up.. Spoilers! Don’t read if you aren’t current w Season 5 :-)!

One of the reasons why I love this show is the sheer devotion that the Gallagher kids have for each other despite all of their own individual dysfunction. Ian is bipolar and struggling with his diagnosis. He flushed all his meds after being released from the psych ward, only to have a scary episode of paranoia and nearly hurt Debbie with a bat, so he goes w Mickey to the clinic, which is the right thing to do but it leaves him incredibly discouraged at the prospect of lifetime of meds that make him feel awful.

Lip totally feels his brother’s pain and encourages him from a place of love and understanding.
