Lip punches him and they leave.At the Purity Ball, girls are confessing their "sins of the flesh" in round robin fashion. Also in round robin fashion, all the kids are sitting back at the family home passing a doobie and contemplating the benefits of not actually being Frank's kids. Back at the Purity Ball, its Karen's turn to share her sins and she goes into so much detail or guy and girl "interaction" that her father stands up and calls her a whore!!Lip and Ian's DNA results come back....and good news for Ian - not Franks. Frank is only a bit concerned that Ian isn't his, but its likely that Ian is the child of one of Frank's brothers. Of course, with Monica. A family argument ensues with a bunch of semantics about who left who versus who drove who out, etc etc. Fiona aptly ends the discussion by telling her to get the heck out of dodge - with Bob, without Liam.Karen comes crying and screaming back home and goes to the cellar to bash in her father's things. Shiela tells him to get out and pushes him outside.....yeah...she goes outside. Where Frank sees her and tells her she's out of the house. She freaks out in a good way and starts waving at the train going by.The kids are all at Steve's place watching the family house. They see Monica and Bob come out to leave and Monica is carrying Liam. She walks over to the kids and starts to cry. She kisses Liam and hands him to Fiona before retreating to leave for one last time with Roberta. Once again, Fiona is back in charge.
